The Bahamas real estate market has seen a massive surge in sales so far, this year. Nearly $400 million worth of property was sold or went under contract in the first quarter of 2021 and transactions nearly doubled compared to pre-COVID activities. The current surge partially is due to the already high demand to buy real estate on the island before the pandemic hit.
