Saint James is the hotspot in Barbados

Is your high street bank overcharging you?

Saint James is the most popular region on the island for those looking to buy property in Barbados and accounts for 38% of all online enquiries, according to a new report from

The western region of Barbados, with its famous “Platinum Coast”, beat Christ Church as the place that most potential buyers are interested in. The south coast region was the second most popular area with 30% of enquiries.

Interest in the area and the island as a whole has been increasing since this time last year. On Google, “property for sale in Barbados” and “Barbados property” were the most popular search terms for those looking at the island.

When it comes to a specific property type there doesn’t seem to be much of a preference, but Saint James was the first destination of choice for many buyers.

The village of Holetown received over 15% of all property searches by location, but parts of Christ Church made up 4 of the top 10 sites that house hunters looked into.

The resorts of Atlantic Shores, Silver Sands and general interest in property in Hastings were particularly favoured.

The resorts of Saint Philip and Saint Peter had the next highest number of enquiries while buyers apparently shunned both the east and north coasts as Saint Lucy, Saint Andrew and Saint John didn’t feature in search data over the entire 12 month period.

With a climate that is one of the best in the world for holiday destinations, and a stable economic and political platform, Barbados has long been a destination of choice for discerning investors.

Christ Church is more affordable than the stunning “Platinum Coast” of Saint James and also has a reputation for surfing, but the glamour and quality of luxury properties available in Saint James means that its appeal holds steady even in uncertain financial times.

If you are considering an investment overseas, be sure to look at the interest rates offered by currency exchange specialists as this is generally the cheapest way to send money abroad.
