Here are some key factors to consider in fnding a real estate agent that will help you realize your real estate goals in The Bahamas.

  1. Real estate license
  2. The frst thing to consider is whether the prospective agent is with The Bahamas Real Estate Association. The association regulates professional

    real estate practice in The Bahamas, provides mandatory education, and issues certifcations. Only licensed members of the association are qualifed to engage in real estate transactions in The Bahamas.

    Feel free to ask potential real estate agents for a copy of their license or refer to BREA’s directory.

  3. Comprehensive and local real estate knowledge
  4. A real estate agent should have a mastery of local market trends. They should also specialize in the areas you’re interested in. Limit your search to Nassau or New Providence real estate agents if you’re only looking at properties on that island. The same advice goes if you are thinking of exploring other markets in The Bahamas.

    Remember that over 700 islands and islets make up The Bahamas. For hyperlocal real estate information, work with a local real estate expert with a demonstrated history of working in that market.

  5. Experience
  6. It is crucial to have someone in your corner who has a professional familiarity with the process. Whether by years or competence, familiarity comes with experience.

    Work with a Bahamas realtor who has extensive experience with the ins and outs of buying and selling local real estate. Ask about their most recent real estate transactions and look for periods of inactivity if they have been in the business for some time.

  7. Tech know-how
  8. Having a tech-savvy realtor is vital whether you plan on buying or selling real estate in The Bahamas in person or remotely. Find an agent who is adept in using real estate apps and resources. Knowledge of digital marketing methods like virtual tours will also help you get ahead of the competition.

  9. Communication skills
