Price in the New Market

Posted on Thu April 26, 2018 | By Hayden Hutton

How much longer can we continue to be romantic about the glory days of 2008?  Property values have changed substantially since then, however property ‘prices’ have not necessarily followed suit.

Common area maintenance (CAM) fees, also referred to as ‘Service Charge’ in some commercial leases, refer to the costs associated with operating and maintaining the space shared by the tenants within a facility, and is charged in addition to the base rent.

Beachfront Property and The High Watermark

Posted on Thu April 26, 2018 | By Lisanne Graham

Beachfront land has always had great appeal to persons wanting to own a piece of paradise. In Barbados, beachfront development has ranged from as far north as Port St. Charles, all the way down to The Crane Private Residences in the South-East of the island. Over the years, this range has seen increasing prices as the supply of land, villas and condos declines.

First-Time Buyers - The Real Cost of Home Ownership

Posted on Thu April 26, 2018 | By Rachel Edwards

Buying a property is a big investment. And as a first-time home buyer, you have much to consider: getting pre-approved for a bank loan, deciding what type of property fits your lifestyle, figuring out where you want to live, finding a qualified agent, and then navigating all the steps from the initial offer to the closing.

Real Estate Investment in the Caribbean

Posted on Thu April 26, 2018 | By Andrew Mallalieu

Often market commentators are heard speaking about the Caribbean as if it is a single market for real estate investment. That is like going to the Olympics to watch sports.  There is everything from a sprint to a marathon, from horse riding to the hammer throw, and everything in between.  Pick a sport please – they are not all the same.  From my seat I get to see the southern Caribbean real estate market from both the helicopter, and in the trenches.  While there are similarities it's the differences that provide the insight.

Red Book Welcome 2014

Posted on Fri May 09, 2014 | By Andrew Mallalieu

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.

Th Red Book 2013 - Welcome

Posted on Thu April 11, 2013 | By Andrew Mallalieu

The annual event of writing an introduction for The Red Book is always filled with trepidation for me. I do not want to over build expectations and then disappoint, nor do I want to fail to introduce the articles in an exciting way. What to do? Risk behind every door. But that is our world today. Every time I think the market has found a direction, there seems to be a further shift. Recently I read that an engineer does not see the glass as half full like the optimist, nor half empty like the pessimist, but rather as a design that is twice as big as it needed to be. I learnt from this that I need to adjust my expectations and face the reality of our market. The half full glass tells us nothing of our future but only of our present. So that is what I hope we will do for you – provide you with an accurate picture of the real estate market in Barbados at present. Whether you are the optimist, the pessimist or the engineer, you will have the data that you need to reach a conclusion.
