Grenada, the more unknown gem of the Caribbean is breathtakingly beautiful, and an emerging property market ideal for second-home buyers and retirees, gaining popularity with South Afrtican’s because of its affordable residency program.

However, having followed the lead of nearby St Kitts & Nevis and Antigua & Barbuda in launching a Citizenship by Investment Program, the Grenada real estate market is expected to develop rapidly and prices are expected to gradually rise.  Invest $220,0000 and not only bag yourself a lovely property,  get citizenship too, which comes with the following benefits:
