Nassau, Bahamas (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
The Bahamas is teaming with new developments in New Providence (Nassau) and Out-island communities, offering attractive and new real estate opportunities to investors, residential and commercial buyers alike. The worldwide popularity of Bahamas Real Estate is largely credited to the Island-nation’s reputation for delivering some of the most secure investment opportunities within the Caribbean region.
“The Bahamas remain among the most desired real estate in the Caribbean,” shares John Christie, Vice President and Managing Director of HG Christie Ltd. Support for this statement was provided recently when The Bahamas was ranked first-place by Global Property Guide’s long-term real estate investment ranking of 13 Caribbean countries. The guide noted, “Owners can come to the Bahamas to enjoy not only the natural beauty the islands, but often to realize great ROI from investments in both commercial and residential properties.”
The Bahamas’ real estate markets are typically separated into three distinctive property markets inclusive of commercial, domestic-residential and large-scale resort development 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.
HG Christie is the oldest, and the most trusted real estate company in the Bahamas offering ample inventory in New Providence and the Out-islands, including private islands and cays. HG Christie led the development of full-service real estate services within the islands and has contributed to the positive economic growth of this gorgeous island nation for almost a century. In the 1920’s, Harold George Christie established a small real estate office in Nassau to provide ethical and legal ownership opportunities within his beloved Bahama Islands, including much sought after beachfront land and private islands. Today, there are over 700 licensed real estate brokers in the country with more than 30 in Abaco alone.
“The Bahamas proximity to the United States is one of the many attractions to owning a residence or operating a business on one of the Bahamian islands,” says John Christie. He goes on to point out, “The ease of access to the islands is very appealing. Numerous scheduled and charter flights from neighboring Florida allow US residents to land in an international destination in under an hour."
Government concessions, a stable economy, peaceful native people, English as a primary language, familiar western conveniences and natural beauty all combine to entice real estate investors, second homeowners, nature lovers, celebrities and the well-heeled from the USA to the shores of The Bahamas.
Equitable attributes for would-be buyers in The Bahamas include – growing market development and demand, available utility supplies and clearly defined ownership rights and benefits. Emerging statistics show that regions for strong investment growth are found in newer developments, gated/planned communities, less-populated and smaller settlements such as communities found in Grand Bahamas and the Abaco Cays. Equally alluring are islands such as Eleuthera, Exuma, Long Island, Cat Island and San Salvador, which offer affordable savvy investments especially appealing for entry-level buyers.

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.
