One of the main attractions to The Bahamas is what sits next to the water—land. Everything is either on the water’s edge, or near to it. With our beautiful turquoise waters, every inch of Bahamian land is valuable. And every real estate investor (and second-home owner) in the world knows it.
Land and real property is always at a premium in The Bahamas, especially the closer it is to Nassau and the more populated family islands. The constantly flow of local buyers and foreign investors makes The Bahamas one of the most valuable places in the world.
Most real estate purchases and sales in The Bahamas are relatively quick—usually from 3-6 months for a simple home sale or purchase.
Both local and foreign real property transactions require the assistance of a local attorney.
The ability to, and the reasons for, buying are important considerations to the government of the Bahamas and in some cases there are regulatory requirements that must be met.
Going from an “Agreement For Sale” to completion of the transaction (and post-completion taxes) is a multi-step process that requires legal assistance, especially for large transaction or for foreign investors. Paradigm is knowledgeable and efficient in this process.
