Real Estate in the Bahamas - The Perfect Place To Make Your Second Home
The Bahamas, is perfectly located--less than 100 miles off the coast of Florida. Only a few hours by ship or twenty minutes by plane, the Bahamas serves as the perfect location to build your second home, and under new legislation it is easy for foreigners to become permanent Bahamian residents.

Since The International Persons Landholding Act became effective in 1993, it has also become easy for non-Bahamians to acquire a home. It should be noted that there is no Capitol Gains tax in the Bahamas.

Owners who purchase a property for $500,000 or more are entitled to apply for a Permanant Residence Permit.

Closing Costs
Buyers are responsible for fees associated with the closing of their property. The Bahamian government levies a Stamp Tax of 10% of the real estate purchase price. This tax can be split between the seller and buyer, as part of negotiations. Thereafter, one pays the annual property tax of 1% on the market value of the property.
