Truth be told, Jamaica is still the darling of the Caribbean and despite the economic challenges facing the country, many persons (local and overseas) have made the conscious decision to not only build or own a home in Jamaica, but to retire here as well.

For them the beautiful tropical climate, warm and captivating beaches, delectable food, distinctive style and culture, as well as the warmth of the Jamaican people is too much to not be a part of.

DID YOU KNOW?

That building a house can be a much less expensive way to acquire a home in Jamaica?

The key is to get a builder who is professional, trustworthy and reasonable. Here's our top recommendation.


The Challenges With Acquiring Housing In Jamaica

However, acquiring a home is not easy, it takes research, a lot of due diligence, time and of course money.

The first and most obvious step is to assess your financial position. 

Then, depending on the vendor, the property and location, the lender or financier and the legal representative, coupled with the Jamaican bureacuracy, the process can take forever - and it sometimes does. 

I actually purchased property sometime ago, and it took us over a year after identifying the property to finally acquire it!

Bottomline, it can be a real challenge.

The Opportunity For Gore Developments

I think it was this opportunity that Mr. Phillip Gore identified when he decided to incorporate Gore Developments over 30 years ago!

I had a talk with Joanne Padgett recently, Marketing and Business Development Manager and was amazed by the impact, offering, reputation and reach their company has had over the last two to three decades in Jamaica.

Joane who started with the company in 2010, operates from the overseas office.

This office was designed strategically to offer the opportunities to the overseas clients including those in the diaspora and true lovers of Jamaica.

I was amazed to learn that they have sold over 550 homes on average over the last few years (750 in 2014), 40% of which are directly from the overseas market!

In a nutshell, they make home ownership a breeze for aspiring Jamaican home owners.

Their model? 

They usually scrub Jamaica to identify prime lands, in or around the developed or developing areas, purchase the lands and then construct houses on them.

The Type And Quality Of The Houses

These detached houses, build with some of the latest technologies- including solar panels and solid concrete roofs, are then made available for purchase to the general public - usually in two or three bedroom units with the option to expand.

Today they have prime properties for sale in Coral Spring Village in Trelawny, New Harbour Village in St. Catherine and Montego West In St. James.

Some of their previous developments include:

  • Bogue Village in Montego Bay
  • Rhyne Park in Montego Bay
  • New Harbour Village I outside of Kingston
  • Braeton New Town
  • West Cumberland Housing
  • And Innswood Village in St. Catherine
  • As well as the new Florence Hall Village (Trelawny) and New Harbour Village II (St. Catherine)

Another Advantage Of A Gore Home

One of the major advantage for such a home though is the relative ease of purchase.

Leveraging their size, influence and reputation, the company was able to forge major alliances and partnerships with some of the major lenders and government agencies - a huge advantage in a society like ours where there can be major bureacraies.

And through economies of scale, they are able to offer the houses a little cheaper than it would have been on the open market.

Their major financial partners include:

  • The National Housing Trust (NHT)
  • Jamaican National Building Society (JNBS)
  • National Commercial Bank (NCB)
  • Bank Of Nova Scotia Jamaica Ltd (BNS)
  • Royal Bank Of Canada (RBC)
  • Victoria Mutual Building Society (VMBS)
  • Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC)
  • City of Kingston Credit Union (COK) &
  • Churches Cooperative Credit Union (CCCU)

As a proud beneficiary of one of these Gore homes (although purchased from the original owner) and more importantly, their solid reputation, I am happy to recommend these good folks to you.
