How to find your house in The Bahamas

Purchasing your own home in the Bahamas is a truly life-changing experience. Filled with excitement, enthusiasm, and perhaps a little dose of natural apprehension, you should embrace the whole process. The Bahamas offers a range of stunning properties scattered across 700 islands and 90,000 square miles of turquoise-colored seas. On New Providence (Nassau) and Paradise Island, you’ll be able to find gorgeous homes and condos that are sure to meet your criteria. We understand that when presented with amazing properties, the choice might be harder than you think! What are your "must-haves"? Before deciding on anything else, you should first consider exactly what is important to you. This is likely to help shape your decision and narrow down your requirements. In The Bahamas, one of the most popular countries in the world for tourists, it’s not uncommon for properties to be bought with a variety of uses in mind. These include:

  • Full-time residence – if you’re looking to start a new life in The Bahamas, you might want to think about a larger property where you can expand into your new lifestyle. Remember that beach toys and golf clubs take up room!

  • As a holiday home – you might also be thinking about a home to use throughout the year as your vacation base, which could afford to be a smaller property. This may also be true if you wish to rent out to other visitors.

  • To retire in – want to move to The Bahamas to see out your retirement? Here, you will find a tropical climate with moderate temperatures, a variety of golf courses and clubs, amazing culinary experiences, and of course the opportunity to relax and enjoy the stunning beaches.

Where would you prefer to live? Once you've decided on the intended use for your new home, it should give you some indication about where it might be best to buy. For example, Ocean Club Estates in Paradise Island is one of the most popular tourist areas, and for good reason! This private golf and beach community is a neighbor to the Atlantis Resort and The One and Only Four Seasons Resort. With its manicured gardens and lively atmosphere, it’s easy to see why it's a popular destination choice. View a listing.

With so many dreamy islands to explore, when it comes to boating in The Bahamas- the options are endless! Throughout New Providence and Paradise Island, you will find an amazing selection of communities that offer houses and condos with full marina services. What matters most to you when buying? The beauty of the Bahamas is that it caters to so many different tastes and preferences. It’s likely that no two intentions are going to be the same when you choose a home, so it’s important to consider the future when deciding on your ideal property. The Bahamas is a welcoming and fantastic country to live in, but depending on your interests, certain areas might not be for you.
