Property prices have remained weak in Barbados.  Gross rental yields in Barbados - the return on the cost of buying a property - are not unattractive, at 5.5% for 2-3 bedroom houses in St James.  Larger properties yield less.

The Caribbean as a region levies extremely high taxes on buying and selling properties. If you have money in a visible thing (property), they will get you!  By the standards of the region however, buying and selling costs in Barbados are not so very high, and mostly borne by the seller.  (See also regional comparson of Barnados´ buying and selling costs)
