How I found my home - by Dr. Annabel Fountain

Dr. Annabel Fountain shares her house hunting experience in Bermuda and how played a part in finding her dream first home.

Annabel: I have been away from Bermuda for 24 years for school and University.  I studied Medicine in the UK and I’m now a consultant of Endocrinology at Bermuda Hospitals Board. Endocrinology is the study of hormones, including insulin.  I chose this specialty as I was aware of the high prevalence of diabetes in Bermuda and always planned to come home to practice.

I always loosely kept an eye on the Bermuda property market, especially as my mum was an estate agent for Coldwell Banker.  She of course has been encouraging me to invest in property here since I came home, but I was waiting for the right property to come up.  I have been renting since I came home in 2010 and I had looked at a few properties but finding something that suited my lifestyle required visiting different agents’ websites, or other media, which was very time-consuming.   

Once I decided to start my search in earnest I was relieved that was able to give me a better overview of the market that I’d been missing before.  It really helped me to decide where I wanted to live and what I could achieve with my budget. Initially I just browsed the listings. Then, by chance, I saw my new home as a featured listing on Propertyskipper’s facebook update.  So I emailed the link to my mum and after several viewings, made a successful offer on the property. The rest is history! I moved in 4 months ago and I’m so happy to have found this house. I’m sure my mum would have loved to have found my dream home for me, but beat her to it!

We are delighted to have played a role in Annabel’s house hunting adventure, we wish her many happy years in her new home! If you have a success story, please do let us know - we would love to hear from you.
