How do I find a place to live in Cat Island?

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

"Finding a place to live in Cat Island involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and what type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a beachfront villa to a modest apartment. Next, you should research the different areas of Cat Island to decide where you'd like to live. The island is divided into North Cat Island and South Cat Island, each with its own unique characteristics and communities. Once you have a clear idea of your preferences, you can start your search. There are several online real estate platforms that list properties in the Bahamas, such as Bahamas Realty, Engel & Völkers Bahamas, and HG Christie Ltd. These websites allow you to filter by location, property type, price range, and other features. In addition to online searches, you might also want to consider hiring a local real estate agent. They can provide valuable insights into the local market, help you negotiate prices, and guide you through the legal process of buying or renting property in the Bahamas. When you find a property you're interested in, arrange a viewing. If you're not currently in the Bahamas, you might be able to do a virtual viewing. Before finalizing any rental or purchase, make sure to thoroughly read the contract and understand all the terms and conditions. If you're buying a property, it's also recommended to hire a local attorney to help with the legal aspects. Finally, once everything is in order, you can move into your new home on Cat Island," said one expat in Cat Island.
