Owning Real Estate in The Bahamas is Not Just For Celebrities

by cmoneyspinner

Foreign Investors are welcome to buy real estate in The Bahamas. So if you're thinking of buying a home or vacation home, owning island realty can become a tropical reality.

The Bahamas was once an ideal refuge for illegal pirates. In fact, it was actually a hot spot for government-sanctioned privateers and pirates were given an official "license to plunder" by the authority of the king. For God and country. Of course!

These days The Bahamas is one of the most preferred tropical locations for weddings and honeymoons. With the exception of hurricane season, the weather is usually always perfect for outside barbecues. It is also an excellent choice for non-Bahamians looking to invest in international real estate – vacation homes, timeshares, etc.

The Bahamas Celebrates Independence Day on July 10th

Flag of The BahamasOn July 10,1973, this nation became an independent member of the British Commonwealth. The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism sponsors a People-to-People program all year-round. It is a cultural exchange effort. Tourists (and/or potential investors) are teamed up with a local Bahamian ambassador who will provide an informal, up-close view of the island life for the average Bahamian.  The government passed laws which provide for the sale of real property to non-Bahamians. 

There are several properties available for sale, priced just the same as if you were buying a waterfront home in California or a penthouse apartment in New York City.  Sure celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise and Tiger Woods own fabulous homes there.  Well actually Oprah owns a palace.  But you can buy a comfortable and lovely 2 or 3 bedroom home and enjoy a slice of paradise too.  It's not as far out of your reach as you might think.

Foreign investors are welcome to buy real estate in The Bahamas.

If Ernest Hemingway didn't resist the temptation, neither should you. Many people purchase real estate in The Bahamas as a second home or vacation home. It's true that there is a large community of expatriates from various parts of the world who have resettled in The Bahamas. But foreign real estate investors are welcome there. The International Persons Landholding Act, 1993, provides for the sale of real property in The Bahamas to non-Bahamians.

* * Important Notes:
* A Bahamian lawyer is required for all real estate transactions in The Bahamas.
* Only BREA (Bahamas Real Estate Association) licensed Realtors may legally sell real estate in The Bahamas.

Don't just dream about owning island property. Make it happen!

Life in the Bahamas is so enticing! I'd love to take that plunge, but the decision isn't mine alone.

My husband often wishes he could go back to his homeland. But all of our children are settled here in the USA and won't move. We'd rather stay on this side of the ocean with them.

If I was rich, I would have settled down in the Bahamas. It is incredibly beautiful and the Nature is so inviting.

VioletteRose on 02/10/2014

The islands of Bahamas are really beautiful, I would love to see it sometimes. Very informative article!

@EmmaSRose - Apologize for the late response. Island life is a good life. My husband reminds all the time. He says Sidney Potier will back him up on it. :)

Thank you all for leaving comments.
Haven't been back to my husband and father's homeland for a while but when or if I ever go, I'll have the waters shark-tested before diving in! :)

EliasZanetti on 10/02/2013

Well the sharks worry me a little bit but Bahamas look amazingly beautiful anyway.

dustytoes on 10/02/2013

I would worry more about hurricanes than sharks, but it would be a lovely place any other time!

Tolovaj on 10/02/2013

Well, I can do without sharks, but the rest is pure beauty:)

ologsinquito on 10/01/2013

The water looks so beautiful. There's nothing quite like that warm turquoise ocean.
