But the demographics of buyers have changed over the years, from affluent retirees to young tech millionaires and millennials looking for a remote working haven.

So, what do today's homebuyers want in a house? Here's what our agents have observed.

Snorkeling Spots - The Bahamas - Morley

One of the greatest things about being a homeowner in the Bahamas Islands is the almost endless supply of beaches, reefs, and underwater adventure opportunities. Whether you're already a snorkeler or have no idea how it differs from scuba diving, you'll find plenty of hotspots near Nassau and Paradise Island homes for sale. To give you a bit of a head start, our agents have compiled a quick list of some local favorites:

  1. Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park
    We're going to start off with a hotspot that many consider the best place for snorkeling in all of The Bahamas. Spanning 176 square miles, the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is recognizable to many James Bond fans as the backdrop for parts of Thunderball and Never Say Never Again. In addition to snorkeling, you'll also find side attractions, including a 22-square-mile park and the luxurious Sandals Emerald Bay resort.

Staging Mistakes to Avoid - Sell in The Bahamas - Morley

Real estate transactions are almost always about the bottom line.

Think of staging as an investment of time that helps maximize the return on the sale of the property. Staging enables you to showcase your home's best assets and impress buyers so you can get the best possible deal on the sale. No matter why you're selling, whether you're looking to downsize or retire to one of our Nassau homes for sale, staging is one of the most lucrative undertakings you can take on.

Still, many sellers make the mistake of believing that staging is actually redecorating and in many other instances, sellers forgo the process altogether. It's really a form of visual merchandising that uses the principles of interior design to make your home look significantly better in photos and evoke a mood that appeals to buyers.

Work From Home in the Bahamas - Morley Realty

Our agents know that the beauty of the Bahamas is becoming attractive to more Americans who no longer need to worry about commuting to work. Working remotely saves the average person thousands of dollars each year to reinvest for a better life.

Many remote workers now have the opportunity to become fully location-independent. Freed from the shackles of an office, they can do whatever they do from a world away. It's no surprise that the blue skies and sun-drenched beaches of the Bahamas are getting more attention.

Nassau and Paradise Island homes for sale are getting a closer look. However, not everyone realizes that a home in the Caribbean really is attainable. They worry that they will not be able to buy property in the Caribbean or that it will be a very different process than they're used to.

Surrounded by endless miles of beautiful blues and greens, our islands were made for celebrating the sun, sand, and sea! For those in search of that idyllic island lifestyle in New Providence, having a home in one of our many waterfront communities offers the best of both worlds - modern-day conveniences with the charm of island living. While the list is extensive, we took a look at three specifically unique communities in New Providence and wanted to share a bit of insight into these areas.

Old Fort Bay

Old Fort Bay is today known as a luxury residential community-based in the west, yet its history dates back to the 1700s. The original Old Fort structure is now an exclusive members' club, but much of the building's history has been preserved in restored murals and architectural details and artifacts. One could easily get lost in the magic of the history that abounds here. Old Fort Bay Marina & Yacht Club lies next to Lyford Cay Harbour and features a canal system. Historic homes and sought-after real estate include Colonial-style estate properties, villas and waterfront houses, and spacious single-family houses. As well as a private beach club, the community has a fitness center, tennis courts, children's playground, 24-hour security, exclusive restaurants, lush tropical landscaping, and more. 

If luxury, peace, the natural environment, and a desire to live the island lifestyle is not just a dream for you but a requirement, you will want to see this coast and canal building site in Old Fort Bay.

Port New Providence

Resting on the eastern shores of New Providence, the Port New Providence community has long been considered to have the most boaters per square foot than any other Eastern neighborhood. This location also has the easiest and fastest route to the beautiful Exuma islands - just a quick trip away. That's music to the ears of any avid boater, beach lover, fisherman, or island adventurer. After all, when your dock is on your doorstep, there's every reason to embrace that Out Island lifestyle. A gated community, Port New Providence is a blend of single-family homes and townhouses. Here you'll find a host of amenities, including a private beach, additional dockage, clubhouse, childrens' playground, tennis courts, and tastefully landscaped grounds, including a duck pond. 24-hour security is also provided.

If you're ready to build that Out Island home of your own, or you're looking for a great investment opportunity, here's a property that gives you 65 feet of canal front along one of the most elevated lots within this fabulous community!  



Sea Breeze Canal

Developed in the 1960s by the George Baker family, this subdivision is a top choice for many of the island's professionals. Tucked away in a secluded and serene waterway, this community rests along eastern New Providence's southern shore and is where you want to be if you're a lover of nature and all things tranquil. Here again, the lure of life on the sea calls. Boating, fishing, diving, and beaching are all within easy access when you can dock your boat in your own backyard! Other highlights include a community park to be enjoyed by families of all ages and sizes and the convenience of this great location. From here, access to almost any point on the island is easy, with several main thoroughfares located close by. Shopping, schools, medical facilities, and dining are also within easy reach. 

If you're ready to make that move, this property offers 100 feet of canal front - perfect for that boat you've needed an excuse to buy ;) 

Whether you're looking to build a luxury tropical retreat or a smaller canal front home that offers that Out Island feel, there is proof of the healing powers of living by the water. When it comes to finding the right property to fit your needs, you'll want to speak with one of our agents. They'll provide you with the information, guidance, and support you need to make a sound decision. Reach out to them today!
