Bermuda property portal to expand into Barbados

The property search website, propertyskipper.com, yesterday announced it would be expanding to Barbados.

The website, which launched in January 2013, has expanded over the last year and now advertises the listings of 22 agents in Bermuda.

“Our platform in Bermuda has been a great success in its first year and we have consistently grown traffic and agent enquiries since our launch,” said Peter Goodall, director of propertyskipper.com.

“When we built the website we did so with the vision of expanding to other jurisdictions and we feel that now is the right time to do this.

“Barbados, with a population of around 280,000, represents a big challenge for our site, which we look forward to. In many ways there are similarities to Bermuda — there is vast variation in housing price points on the island (and thus target market), interest from both local and international traffic, and an increasing trend toward online search — both from desktop and mobile.”

Mr Goodall added: “We see this as a great opportunity to build a strong online Caribbean and Atlantic brand and believe we can become a leading property search hub within the region.”

For more information, contact Peter Goodall at 704-0214, e-mail peter@propertyskipper.com or go to the website at www.propertyskipper.com.
