Property tax is cheap
christineklein replied most recently with:
If you are talking about property taxes, they are extremely low (compared to the US). There is 16.5% Gross Consumption Tax on everything which is relatively high. Not sure what else you would be referring to. I am a full time real estate agent and expat living in Negril for the past 3.5 years. Anything else I can help with, just let me know. ;-)

We will be filming in Negril on 21st January and would require extras for our branded film. This is ideally a couple between 25 - 55 years old. They will be requried to pretend being a guest in a hotel - lounging, drinking cocktails, maybe going to the pool. We have £50 per day per person for this. Please email Nikola on vidassist@telegraph.co.uk if you are interested to participate and send a photo of yourself. Many thanks, Nikola

Happy New Year! Canadian-Caribbean female wanting to visit JA for about 4-6 months for winter 2015. I am a graduate student in her 30’s and would like to participate in an exchange with the UWI - Mona. I haven’t been home in years and I know it has changed, so I any help/guidance regarding furnished rentals would be appreciated. I like living alone, but I would be willing to share with another female (as safety is paramount) and of course would like to be close to the university. Also, any information on price range would be great, as the research I’ve done doesn’t seem to be giving me a clear picture. Thanks!

Hello! Glad to hear that you are planning to do an exchange study visit here at UWI Mona. I'm an academic and ex-pat, recently relocated from London UK to take up a post at UWI. The first thought that came to me is whether you have approached your host department for assistance and support with finding accommodation? As a doctoral student, I spent a year at a UWI institute, affiliated to a department, and they were very helpful in pointing me towards accommodation sources, if they are themselves unable to provide housing. If security is paramount and you cannot get access to university provided accommodation, then you should try to find accommodation in and around Mona itself. It's a relatively safe area with many gated communities and I know that many students live locally. I'm not in a position to give you current rental rates but i would just contact a local estate agents and request average prices. I'd be interested to hear what your discipline is...good luck and best wishes

Anyone can recommend a nice safe condo complex with pool near MoBay for a one month stay during the winter? Real estate agents you can recommend will be appreciated. Looking for more upscale but not over the top price wise.
janni replied most recently with:
I have a huge house with a pool and great views over the ocean that we just purchased and are fixing up as a villa or B&B type establishment, in Ironshore neighborhood. If you are willing to put up with renovations and a work in progress, we could give you a nice room with private bath or a small suite of two rooms and bath, for a good rate well below the market.
