50 Years On

Posted on Wed January 18, 2017 | By Andrew Mallalieu, CPA, MRICS, CEO

As we publish this 10th edition we cannot ignore that it falls at a time in the 50th year of independence of our small island state.  As a nation we have all been struggling to focus on what we can be proud of when there is so much that is not meeting the high standards that we set for ourselves 50 years ago.  From a real estate perspective I choose to focus on the words and meaning in the the chorus of our national anthem:

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.

Posted on Tue June 07, 2016 | By Jeanie Mahon & Anna Lee Warren, Real Estate Agents

Living a stone’s throw away from pristine white sand beaches and any-time ocean dips is a luxury almost everyone craves.

Sandy Lane - Illustrious Caribbean Address

Posted on Tue May 31, 2016 | By Hayden Hutton

In February 1961 and with just 52 rooms, the Sandy Lane Hotel opened its doors to welcome its first guests. The establishment of the hotel was the brainchild of Sir Ronald Tree, a British politician who built a magnificent Palladian home on 20 acres on the West Coast known as Heron Bay. Cognisant of the burgeoning travel numbers to the Caribbean enabled by the jet age, Sir Ronald was concerned that his beloved Heron Bay would soon be surrounded by flashy resorts and middle-income retirees. His vision was to pre-empt this by establishing a luxury hotel and community with a golf course, and he determined that the Sandy Lane sugar plantation was the ideal location. Permission was sought from then Prime Minister Sir Grantley Adams to convert the estate out of sugar production into a building estate and to relocate the main highway that ran directly through what eventually became the main restaurant and bar. With financing arranged out of the UK, Sir Ronald and his colleagues (including names like Rothschild and Kindersley) formed the development company West Coast Limited. They purchased the estate from the Barbados Shipping & Trading and the hotel broke ground in mid-1958.

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.
