QUESTION about: Is it better to build or buy a home in Jamaica


We are looking to purchase a modest home in Jamaica. My future husband works in Negril. But has expressed that he would prefer to live in Mobay, or Trelawney. He works in Negril. I would like to be there within two years. I will be retired, and have to sell my home, and belongings, to get there. We need a two or three bedroom, open floor plan, modern. Or is a town homes better. Looking for assistance please. Additionally, I will be down in Negril, November,28 thru dec.10th.

Respectfully,
Veronica

Hi Veronica,

Since you mention that you will be retired, a town home sounds like an attractive option for you with its low upkeep. I think the best help we could give you is this.

You write us here again just before your trip in November. We will line you up with a couple of real estate agents. You pick the one with whom you’re most comfortable.

We will need the most important factor of course, which is your price range and conditions if any that would affect your payment of the purchase price.

However, if you plan to purchase 2 years from now – you may be looking at a different market at that time. So you’d be looking at what’s available now.

Regards,
June (paradisoja@gmail.com)
