Like seemingly most who end up on this forum, I'd love to one day have a home on Eleuthera. I enjoy looking at the various real estate websites even though I know that potentially purchasing a home on Eleuthera is years away (many). How many years away obviously depends on the costs involved. So for that, I would love some rough estimates on what one could expect to pay for the following monthly/yearly expenses:
Utilities - all I've read is that the electric bill can be really high but never seen any actual numbers. I'd love some input.
Property taxes - I believe I found a sliding scale for property taxes that showed what % of the home's value is taxed based on how much the home/property is worth. Can't seem to find it now.
Insurance - a beachfront home's insurance I'm sure can be pretty expensive given its location in the Caribbean and the chance of hurricanes.
Caretaker - if one chooses to rent out their property, what is the standard rate to compensate a caretaker (i.e., cleaning property and tending to guests and keeping property in shape but not actually staying at the property).
Lots of questions. Not looking for exact numbers as I realize there are many variables. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
