Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Signage Sunday: Get REAL estate

As they say in real estate, there are three things to consider:  location, location, location.  Well, the same should be said for real estate signs.  Where you put them is an important part of marketing the property.

Take for instance this "for rent" sign; it's located on an abandoned building - a building that was once used as a toll booth.  (It sits at the bridge that connects Tortola and Beef Island where the airport is.)

Looks awfully small for a two-bedroom!  I wonder what the description would be - maybe something like:
  • cozy waterfront property
  • bungalow feel
  • easy access to main road
  • close proximity to the airport
  • could be used as revenue source, if renter chooses to collect tolls from unsuspecting tourists just arriving to the territory
Thanks to our friend Gerry for capturing the photo and emailing it to us!  We agree - it's hilarious!
