What is Your Bahamas Real Estate Personality?

Finding your ideal real estate solution in The Bahamas is simple if you know what your personality type is!

As reported in The Wall Street Journal, “A new study finds that personality traits can help predict our real-estate decisions.” http://www.wsj.com/articles/in-real-estate-your-personality-makes-your-predictable-1414595055


Danny Ben-Shahar, and Roni Golan, Senior Lecturers at Tel Aviv University, conducted a study which produced a paper, “…exploring preferences and choices in the real estate market from a personality perspective. … Empirical results provide solid evidence for an association between personality traits and individual preferences on a series of housing tenure, mortgage, and real estate investment attributes.” http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2502494

Personalities are split into the “Big 5” – Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Neuroticism and Openness to Experience. You can learn your own personality trait via this online questionnaire: http://psychologytoday.tests.psychtests.com/take_test.php?idRegTest=1297
