east of May Pen, the capital of and largest town in Ja- maica’s Clarendon Parish. May Pen is one of the most important trade centers and marketplaces in the entire Parish, with a large residen- tial community that mostly works in the agriculture and mining industries. The town is located approximately 35 miles west of Kingston, the capital of Jamaica, and the two population centers are connected by a section of the nation’s major thoroughfare, Highway 2000. The property is an attrac- tive investment, because home prices have risen 41% in Jamaica from 2010-2015, with young professionals and first-time homebuyers in middle-income brackets typically purchasing two-to- three bedroom homes for up to US$200,000 and single- occupancy apartments for up to US$178,957. These trends are expected to continue, as mortgage rates in the country are currently low. Borrowers in the Carib- bean can have great difficulty securing loans.

There are many challenges to getting a land deal done overseas: banks and lenders in a foreign nation might not be able to find the money for a large-scale loan, and the lack of knowledge of for- eign government regulations and politics can frighten off U.S.-based traditional lend- ers.
