I'm looking to move to St. Thomas at the end of may for 6 months or longer. I am an American from Little Rock, Arkansas. I have looking for apartments to rent for the past few days. I would like to know the best locations to move to with reasonable rent. I have a french bulldog who will be moving with me as well. I will also be looking for work while there. I have two degrees in Marketing and MIS (building websites). I don't really care to work a job in this field. I would rather just bartend or work on a boat or resort. Something that isn't too crazy because I am tired and just looking for a change. Could anyone please point me in the wrong direction. I will be moving there no matter no later than the end of May. I would be willing to move earlier if good info. Thank you for all the help.

You'll find a ton of relevant information on the relocation forum rather than this which is the classified ad forum. Read all the information in the drop-down menus top of the page and then use the forum for additional information. Good luck.

I am looking to buy a condo on Sapphire beach. My hubby and I stayed a week there recently and fell in love! We stayed in condo A on the 1st floor, 1 bed, 1 bath.

I was told by a realtor that condos must be bought in cash??? Something about self insured? I'm confused and can't even fathom this concept. If I put 100k down on a condo, why can't it be financed?

Does anyone know about this that can explain it for me? I'm planning ny PMV and this may be a deal breaker.
Thanks

As mentioned in the other relocation thread, so as not to confuse anyone reading this, only condominium complexes that are self insured for windstorm, especially, are not eligible for bank/mortgage financing. For those one must pay cash.
Most condo complexes aren't self insured. The majority of condos at Sapphire
are not with the exception of the Crystal Cove units, which are self insured so financing cannot be obtained for them.
