Now in its seventh year, The Red Book continues to provide its readers with an accurate and reliable picture of real estate in Barbados. This free, comprehensive property guide is produced annually by local real estate firm Terra Caribbean and is designed to help its readers as they navigate the Barbados property market.
“The challenge each year is to make it better, and by ‘better’ we mean more relevant to you the reader,” said Chief Executive of Terra Caribbean, Andrew Mallalieu. “This year we have added more statistics, more professional articles and we have even done some ‘ancient history’ research.”
Renowned architect Larry Warren opened this year’s book in fine style with his article on the ‘Evolution of the West Coast’. Andrew Mallalieu spoke very highly of his involvement stating, “Larry’s article is a must-read that I suspect will be referred to by many in years to come. In the past we have profiled developers who have chosen Barbados for investment, but this year we thought it fitting to hear from an architect who has both been affected by the changes and effected the changes.”
Senior Marketing Coordinator, Gemma Holder, explained “This year we have further enhanced the publication with even more illustrative charts and bigger, brighter images. Our expanded luxury section by our sister company Bajan Services | Knight Frank showcases some of the most spectacular homes available for sale in Barbados. The publication also features a well-arranged collection of development properties from the south to the west coast, a wide array of residential and commercial sales and rentals across the island and an informative Pink Pages section featuring articles from knowledgeable and experienced professionals in the sector.”
Chief Operating Officer, Hayden Hutton contributed an interesting article to The Pink Pages this year by digging into the history of property sales in the Sandy Lane Estate from the 1960s while Andrew Mallalieu opens this section with a thought-provoking article encouraging readers to question the value of information and to find answers. Another interesting read comes from Sherwin Walker, Supervising Valuer in the Land Tax Department, who speaks about the patterns of residential land prices in Barbados through the years.
