Village Road Project Still Not 100% Complete

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A resident engineer at the Ministry of Works says the weather has caused a major challenge in completing the sidewalks on Village Road.





NASSAU, BAHAMAS – It all boils down to supply and demand. According to Bahamas Real Estate Association Member Philip Kemp, the local rental demand is high.

But, if you were to ask the average consumer, renters may beg to differ.

An audit of social media commentary shows potential tenants believe some of the existing supply oftentimes does not meet the quality for rent prices as advertised.

And while potential tenants in other countries may benefit from rent control, Bahamian renters don’t have the same luxury. Can it work in The Bahamas? We put the question to Kemp.

BREA President Nikki Beouf, says introducing regulations will mean a lot of research and consultation with licensed agents. As for how it may impact landlords?

And for the benefit of consumers, Kemp says overpricing units in this market may mean waiting months on end for a signed lease. As for buyers, he says beware and always use a licensed agent.
