Hi everyone
We have been offered a move from Europe to Bahamas with hubby's company and we just signed the contract. Hubby will be moving over before us (me and 4.5 yr old daughter). We will be joining him in January. The company is setting him up with accommodation for 6 weeks, so that he can work and take the time to look for accommodation for us. We have researched and would preferably like to live in a gated-community. And we've looked at Sandyport as well as Cable Beach. Can anyone here give us recommendations for realtors? Is it also the norm to put down three months rent in advance? What is included in the rental per month? (I ask that last question, because we currently have water and servicing (trash, gardening, etc.) included in our rental agreement and only pay gas and electricity through a separate company)

Also, recommendations on internet please.

Thanks so much. We are looking forward to this move.

Cheers,
Disney Fam B!

Welcome to Paradise!

My family just relocated in March from the US. Also with a small child. Contact Danny Lowe, he's a great local realtor and found us the perfect home in a gated community. He's with MCR Bahamas 242-424-3499.

Yes, three months is standard here (first, middle and last months rent). That typically will only include the rent and all other expenses are separate, power/gas, cable, water, etc.

Depends on what you choose and can negotiate with the owners.

Good Luck

Thanks so much for the advice! Off topic title: for the visa application, we have to get a medical certificate from our doctor. Do you know what they have to test? It only mentions that we shouldn't have communicable diseases (but there are so many)
