  • The Mecca : Kingston is booming!

    500 sqft,1 bedroom Apt/ Condo for 180k USD

    700 sqft, 2 bedroom Apt/ Condo for 260 k USD .

    That's in havendale,new gated community 8 units.

    There is a construction boom for gated communities,who is buying this ? The banks to rent out on the Airbnb market.

    Incidentally that sqft is robbery . 2 bedroom should be at least 800 and 1 at least 600 sqft.

    How does the average Jamaican benefit from this ,I have my thoughts , curious about the forumites thoughts ?

        Comprehension: I said the banks are buying them , what's being sold are coffins.

        500 sqft is a coffin for $180 k.

              Pricing the poor and middle class out of aforable housing to service a tourist market. Shows the demand for tourism in Kingston is there. That's good, opens up the service industry.( Sarcasm)

                  Not making a point asking questions if it's good for the banks to be financing these gated communities for Airbnb and buying them out at the same time. They project a demand but what if they are wrong ?

                  This is not for the middle class , 2nd 500 sqft is called a studio in NY ,doesn't matter where in NY. You guys selling that as a 1 bedroom..

                  Prices are based on neighborhood like anywhere and projected future value ( gentrification).

                  Some win some loose,seems risky for the banks,good for investors and construction workers bad for the middle class.

                      Comprehension: The banks are financing Airbnb coffins . The few that can buy don't equate to the volume being built ,so even if the few can buy ............Yuh get it ?

                      They are betting on the pandemic opening up that expats/ forgein buyer market.


                      Seem like a bubble to me .

                              That's your story ,I spoke with several developers and am speaking with them presently. Banks can't buy outright ,they financed deals that present that option thereby hold a interest by financing.
