Property Sales Increase Despite Soft Economy

Tuesday March 28th, 2017

Bahamas Realty Ltd. announced today that the firm realized a gross sales increase of nearly 60% in real estate sales, and an almost 80% increase in gross commissions in 2016 over the same period in 2015, despite a soft economy. “We are delighted to see that sales increased so significantly this past year,” said CEO Larry Roberts. “While the economy has been slow to improve, this tells us that there is still demand for housing and commercial property in the Bahamas.” However, with an increase in inventory, today’s savvy buyer is more discerning. “What we are seeing is that building a relationship of trust is key to consumer confidence. Expertise and top notch service are our hallmark, and our team goes above and beyond to truly take the time to understand our client’s needs,” explained Roberts. The real estate market continues to shift, and with it Bahamas Realty continues to create new opportunities for its clients. “Our job as a brokerage firm is to ensure that our agents are given the marketing tools, office support and education they need to stay current with market conditions,” said Roberts. “We provide a host of educational opportunities through leading edge online educational courses and support for industry designations and global conferences,” said Roberts. Bahamas Realty has remained on the cutting edge of technology, investing in tools that help clients feel connected to every aspect of the transaction. Recently the company announced that they had begun offering 3D video tours which allow buyers to “walk” through a space in virtual reality even before they have an opportunity to see the property in person. “Bahamas Realty is known for its great reputation and high standards of integrity,” said Roberts. What that means for today’s real estate buyer is transparency in the process, communication and above average service. Roberts ads, “This year has shown us that we are on the right path, and we are grateful to our whole team and to our valued clients.”
