How do I find a place to live in Bahamas?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"We used a couple online real estate agents: Dupuch and Paradise Island living. Looking for anything on Paradise Island close to Atlantis," remarked another foreigner who made the move to Paradise Island.

"Saw a variety of places in the West on a prior visit and gave realtor an idea of what I liked. Recommendation from local contacts was to look out West as traffic from East into town was terrible and job was in town," explained one person living in Nassau, Bahamas.

"The security was very important to us. We live in a gated community. Not too far from my husband's office, airport and school. Through a real estate agent," said another expat in Nassau.

"We use a real estate agent. We choose the western side of the island, no traffic! But of course it depends where your office is located," remarked another member in Nassau.
