If we were to mention the ‘R’ word 10 years ago, most Barbadians would have run for cover. The thought of retirement (the ‘R’ word) was associated with being on your death bed. Ten years later and with increased knowledge of life balance and living a more active and healthier lifestyle, the thought of retirement has become a lot more palatable.

This year is the third time we have published the Terra Caribbean Land Price Index (TCLPI) and with each iteration, we refine the process for information gathered and add to the volume of information in the analysis set. We continue to operate in a market with imperfection information, and as such, this data that we curate and maintain grows in value with each successive year. It is a live data set with additions constantly being made to the most recent periods as well as to historic periods as new information becomes available.
In our last edition of The Red Book, we acknowledged the fact that the rural landscape of the island has now become the focus for local and overseas investors - and the most noticeable case of this is the parish of St. Philip. Now, the quiet, south-eastern countryside of Barbados is beaconing with residential and other developmental opportunities, positioning it firmly as one of the most desirable parishes to live in on the island.

The old Barbadian adage ‘owning a piece of the rock’ is as relevant today as it has ever been. Developments such as The Grove ensure that Barbadians have the chance to keep the tradition alive, while enjoying peace of mind knowing that they have secured a sound, lucrative investment.
Barbados’ economic stability, plus a growing and constant demand, makes land one of the most sound investments on the island. This is even more pertinent given the depressed present state of the industry, where land prices have declined over the past six years and the prospect for good appreciation is at last in sight. This has re-kindled buyers’ interest and has given trend followers good reason to anticipate significant land value appreciation in the coming four-to-six years. Such appreciation will likely outstrip interest on most other available investment options. But, before making the final decision on a land investment, it is crucial to have an overall appreciation of the market, and be acquainted with the benefits of investing in our ‘Rock’.

It’s seven year itch time! Yes, this is the seventh edition of The Red Book. The challenge each year is to make it better, and by ‘better’ we mean more relevant to you the reader. This year we have added more statistics, more professional articles and we have even done some “ancient history” research with Hayden interviewing the two agents responsible for the sales at Sandy Lane Estate in the 1960s. I think you will find that article both informative and entertaining.
