You might get a 2 bed flat in Jersey for that money if you look hard enough!
Average house price currently stands at £480,000!!
But I'm afraid you need to be resident for 12 years continously before you can apply for housing qualifications
Unless of course you apply for whats known as Regulation 1(1)k status whereby "the Minister is satisfied that consent can be justified on social and economic grounds". As a general rule this would mean having to purchase property valued at over £1m in addition to having a net worth that would see you paying over £200,000 in income tax.
We currently have I think 168 1(1)k residents in Jersey- Nigel Mansell, Derek Warwick, Alan Whicker, Ian Woosnam to name a few.
Just recently we let in Tony Buckingham, one of the leading figures behind "Executive Outcomes", the well known private military contractors, apparantly he's worth around £250m. That caused a bit of a stir, having someone with his kind of background!
