What property on the market right now, in your opinion, do you think is really good value? Harbour Watch. A great price for such space, views and waterfront property. (Link Above).
How do you see the Bermuda property market in 2020? I see a shift in people looking for bargain priced rentals and are looking outside of the preferred area which is central. A number of people are now open to looking at rentals at the extreme ends of the island.
What are your top 3 tips for tenants when looking for a potential new home? Be realistic with your budget, have a list of must haves and be open to compromise a bit
Finally – do you have any good tips for Landlords when preparing their home for rent? If the property is vacant, keep the electricity on so a prospect tenant can see that appliances and lights work, try to do a weekly light cleaning, and ensure that the exterior is in great condition as first impression is most important.
