Arising Real Estate Opportunities In The Southern Bahamas

Engel & Vӧlkers reveals exciting, up and coming real estate opportunities in the Southern Bahamas.

Bahamas-based real estate agency, Engel & Vӧlkers is delighted to unveil arising real estate opportunities in the Southern Bahamas. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the Bahamas boasts a buoyant property market, which attracts investors from all corners of the globe.

Cheryl DeGoicoechea, real estate advisor at the firm, was born and raised in Long Island, and she knows the local market like the back of her hand. With ten years of experience in selling real estate on Long Island, Cheryl is keen to share the opportunities this property haven offers. Many people are aware of the larger islands and hot spots like Nassau and Exuma, but Long Island is attractive not for what it is, but more for what it isn’t. Ms. Degoicoechea said that people fall in love with Long Island because it offers something different. There are no casinos, no malls, and no crime. This is a tranquil spot that offers seclusion and the chance to escape it all. Many buyers come for a vacation and fall in love, choosing to put down roots and embrace island life.

Located around 165 miles from the bustling island of Nassau and 350 miles from the US, Long Island boasts a population of just 3,500. The scenery is beautiful, with golden beaches, bright blue waters, undulating hills, and charming, colorful villages.

For Ms. DeGoicoechea, the appeal of Long Island is obvious. For buyers, signing on the dotted line is “a lifestyle investment for people looking to disconnect from more hectic and stressful cities.” As well as enjoying peace and a languid pace of life, buyers can also enjoy the sense of community. There’s a large population of US and Canadian citizens, as well as a growing influx of European homeowners. Most buyers are aged between 40 and 75, with younger owners taking advantage of excellent Internet connectivity to work or manage businesses remotely. There are also daily flights to Nassau for those who travel frequently.

According to Engel & Vӧlkers Bahamas, there are several ingredients that make Long Island a fantastic place to buy. As Cheryl DeGoicoechea explains, “First you get a lot of land with the majority of homes, one and a half acres is typical which gives you privacy from your neighbours. Second, most homes are being sold turnkey. Since it is a lifestyle investment most sellers are leaving everything; cars, boats, gear, you name it. Third, there is the price. You get so much more here for your money than you would in Harbour Island or Nassau. Most of all the buyers love the turnkey home where they can move right in.” Recently, there has also been a huge rise in the popularity of eco-tours and outdoor activities, and Long Island is ideally placed for exploring neighbouring islands and dive sites, such as Dean’s Blue Hole.
