Nassau and Western New Providence remain among the most desired family friendly areas in the Caribbean
Nassau, Bahamas (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
HG Christie Ltd. (HGC), the oldest full-service real estate brokerage in the Bahamas, is promoting Nassau real estate opportunities, attracting families in search of a diverse and culturally rich upbringing for their children.
“Kids on Nassau grow up in a cultural melting pot, yet aren’t on the other side of the earth,” Islands Magazine mentions. Most schools in the Bahamas are closely modeled after the British school system and are occupied by students according to district. “Many parents choose to home school their children or choose one of the private schools on the islands.” In less populated areas outside Nassau or on Out-islands in the Bahamas, such as Abaco and Elbow Cay, it is not uncommon to see one-room all-age schoolhouses encompassing grades from Kindergarten through High School levels.
The worldwide popularity of relocating to the Bahamas is largely credited to the Island-nation’s reputation for delivering secure investment opportunities, proximity to the United States as well as the rich culture prevalent in most Caribbean islands. New Providence (Nassau) real estate markets remain a popular choice for buyers offering many distinct opportunities. Nassau real estate is normally separated into three distinctive property markets inclusive of commercial, domestic-residential, and large-scale resort developments and residential programs such as the world-class Atlantis and the new 3.2 billion dollar Baha Mar offered by preferred brokers such as HG Christie.
“Nassau and Western New Providence remain among the most desired family friendly areas in the Caribbean,” shares John Christie, Vice President, and Managing Director of HG Christie Ltd. This statement was recently fortified when Island Magazine ranked Nassau (New Providence Island) a top pick for raising a family. “Families appreciate our vibrant local Bahamian culture intermingled with a British heritage and a richly diverse international presence. The many islands proffer boundless life experiences, ranging from enviable first world standards to isolated third world practices. Our island nation of 700 islands provides something for everyone including, a good return on investment.”
HG Christie is the oldest, and the most trusted real estate company in the Bahamas offering family friendly inventory in New Providence, and nearby Out-Islands, plus private islands and cays. HG Christie has led the development of full-service real estate services within the islands, and contributed to the positive economic growth of this prominent island nation, for almost a century.
“The proximity to the United States is one of the many attractions to relocating, owning a residence, and starting a family in The Bahamas,” says John Christie. He goes on to point out, “There are numerous scheduled and charter flights from neighboring Florida offering arrival in The Bahamas in under an hour. Additional direct flights from major cities and airports across the globe provide ease of access to our islands which is very appealing and advantageous to family travel.” Investors are lured by government concessions, a stable economy, peaceful native people, English as a primary language, familiar western conveniences and breathtaking natural beauty; which all combine to entice families, second homeowners, nature lovers, celebrities, and the affluent to come to The Bahamas.
Equitable attributes for would-be buyers in The Bahamas include: growing market development and demand, available utility supplies, clearly defined ownership rights, and good private schools. Emerging statistics show that regions for strong investment growth are found in new developments, gated/planned communities, and less-populated and smaller settlements such as communities found in some of the out islands where HG Christie also has offices, such as The Abacos, Eleuthera and Exuma.

About The Bahamas
The Bahamas officially the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is a country consisting of more than 700 islands, cays, and islets in the Atlantic Ocean; north of Cuba and Hispaniola (the Dominican Republic and Haiti); northwest of the Turks and Caicos Islands; southeast of the U.S. state of Florida and east of the Florida Keys. Its capital is Nassau on the island of New Providence. Geographically, the Bahamas lie near to Cuba, which is part of the Greater Antilles, along with Hispaniola, and Jamaica.
The designation of "Bahamas" refers to the country and the geographic chain that it shares with the Turks and Caicos Islands. The three West Indies/Caribbean island groupings are: The Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the Lesser Antilles. As stated on the mandate/manifesto of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, the Bahamas territory encompasses 180,000 square miles of ocean space. From the Cay Sal Bank and Cay Lobos (just off the coast of Cuba) in the west, to San Salvador, the Bahamas is much larger than is recorded in some sources.
