Cost of the Build

Compared to buying an existing home, the costs associated with building a home are not always clear from the start. Expect some unplanned out-of-pocket costs. Materials typically have to be imported and are subject to a considerable duty (between 15- 22 %).

Our highly skilled in-house quantity surveyor, who has over 25 years’ experience and honest and transparent relationships across all the sub-trades, will view your project from all aspects and calculate the cost down to the last nail. He will obtain the most competitive quotes and prepare a full project cost analysis that will guide you to develop a realistic budget that reflects your quality objectives


With the exception of a one-time stamp duty on property purchases, the Cayman Islands government imposes no requirement to pay tax on income from the sale or lease of property. There is no property tax, sales tax, inheritance tax, or capital gains tax.

All land in the Cayman Islands is recorded in a Land Registry system maintained by the government which guarantees title, so there is no need to pay for title insurance.

The Cayman Islands has modern infrastructure, reliable utilities, state-of-the-art telecommunications, excellent schools, outstanding health care facilities, and the highest standard of living in the Caribbean.

Investors will discover an amazing variety of high-quality property for sale ranging from vacant land, affordable apartments, condominiums, single family homes (both inland and beachfront), to some of the most luxurious homes in the Caribbean.

Obviously, building a house is not for everyone and there are many factors to consider in order to get the result you were hoping for, from choosing the right architect, contractor, suppliers, and method of build. Edgewater Group can help you make your home truly yours.
