Purchasing on Leased Land on Aruba

Purchasing land in Aruba is a lot simpler than you would think. The authorities in Aruba are very welcoming to foreigners looking to buy or lease land. Leases are extensive as they can last for over sixty years, all while the property accrues value. The leased area in Aruba is subjected to the lease period and a 6% yearly lease fee (from the appraised value of the home).

Real Estate Growing Value

Non-residents still purchase homes on leased land in Aruba, as the practice is common, this means your home’s value can still rise. Homes in the majority of Aruba’s areas such Noord Aruba are on leased land, yet their values soar as resorts and tourist attractions open up nearby. Purchasing a home in Aruba is an investment that yields a fantastic return over time.
