The Price of Luxury

Posted on Fri January 27, 2017 | By Rachel Edwards, Sales Manager

Barbados is home to a number of absolutely amazing villas that really are truly special in the unrefined sense of the word. And, despite all that’s been going on in the global arena, we have seen a few sales of mega-luxury properties that tell us there is still confidence and interest in that segment of the market. Moreover, recent years have also seen the island record increases in luxury travel, something which has always been considered a positive indicator for the market.  

WHY BARBADOS? WHY NOW?

Posted on Thu November 17, 2016 | By Karyn Fakoory , Real Estate Agent

As is expected, we real estate practitioners in Barbados have been speculating and trying to forecast the short- to long-term effects associated with the fact that the citizens of the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union. The possibilities coming out of the so-called Brexit have ranged from scenarios of depression and out-right doom and gloom, to frenzied optimism.

Barbados’ Tourism Resurgence

Posted on Wed July 27, 2016 | By Tarik Browne, Group Knowledge Manager

The global financial crisis in 2009 had a profound impact on Barbados’ tourism industry.  Arrivals dipped sharply, and after a recovery in 2011 failed to be sustained, 2013 saw the lowest long stay visitor arrivals since 2002. Since then stakeholders have implemented a revamp of the government support structures for the industry, and along with increased confidence in the global economy, arrivals have gone from strength to strength.  Total arrivals were up by 13.7% in 2015 and nearly 17% from the low in 2013.

THE HISTORY

The Value of a Valuation

Posted on Mon July 25, 2016 | By Symon Clarke , MRICS - Manager - Advisory Services

Real Estate is complex, and for that reason, clients require the property valuation experts to provide Market Valuation reports for their various purposes. The interest you hold in a property heavily influences your perception of the property’s value. During this recessionary period it has been particularly challenging reconciling market reality with perceptions, given the general fall-off in market prices.

Plantations 101 - A Brief History

Posted on Fri May 27, 2016 | By Hayden Hutton, CCIM MRICS


 

The six-year period leading up to the peak of the market in 2006 is widely regarded as a period of unprecedented growth in the Barbados market. This boom period saw compound annual growth in some market segments of 12% and staggering prices being achieved for property in some areas of the West Coast. The reality is that this growth cycle paled in comparison with the island’s first property boom, which occurred much earlier in our history.
