What do I need to know before moving to Bahamas?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Bahamas, they said:
"Work with a good realtor. Talk to people and look at websites. Look for "security" first and foremost. Gated community feels safest if you are alone," commented one expat who made the move to Nassau.
"Pack everyting in plastic storage boxes (lots of cockroaches here!!!) Think about your security. Criminality is high in Nassau. Choose a recent house. Think you may have lots of problems in a old house (plumbing, roof, etc...) Try to have a spare room or a cottage for your guests/visitors," remarked one expat in Nassau, Bahamas.
