"The Bahamas luxury market continues to evolve. Buyers are more international than ever and developments such as Albany are setting new standards in the Caribbean. Easy access, new offerings and lots of sunshine, we expect the Bahamas market to continue to grow in 2015."
Edward de Mallet Morgan, Partner
Buying Property in the Bahamas
The Bahamas has comprehensive infrastructure, particularly on the two major islands, New Providence and Grand Bahama, where most of the population live. It is an English speaking country which gained its independence from Britain on July 10, 1973 and is one of the most politically stable countries in the Caribbean. The economy of the Bahamas is driven by tourism, international banking and other financial services.
The Bahamas is renowned for its cycling, fishing, snorkelling, golf and much more. Culturally the Bahamas is major for its arts, dance and music with a local parade named Junkanoo. In Nassau you can find a high standard of shopping, night life and some fantastic restaurants. The Ocean Club, Exumas, Paradise Island, Lyford Cay, Marsh Harbour and the Abacos offer some of the most sought after properties in the Caribbean.
Close ties and proximity to the US help make Bahamas’ economy stable and allows for easy access to most international destinations. Financially within the Bahamas there is no income, inheritance, capital gains or corporate taxes.
