Yes I have a townhouse condo on leased land. I pay approx 850.00 per year and my property tax are approx 1200.00 Any property near the ocean is leased. If you go inland you would own the land. Look for a gated community, lots of B&E's. As far as purchasing a property you pay the same no matter what your citizenship is. If you ship in furniture there is approx 20% import tax. Good luck with your travels!!!!!
I'm confused about the fees on long lease land. I wrote a realtor about a property that caught my interest. Anyway to make a long story short, he told me that no other taxes were levied in addition to the long lease fee. I thought you had to pay twice with leased land?
Disregard my last post. The realtor got confused, as it appears that English is not his native language. There are taxes in addition to long lease fees on properties in Aruba. So it looks like long lease land is indeed more expensive to own.
