Hundreds of Jamaicans, Britons and persons of Jamaican heritage who attended the third annual staging of the “I Love Jamaica Day” festival in London had the opportunity to view the real estate offerings, in which they can invest or own in Jamaica.

Several Jamaican property developers such as: Gore Homes, Moorlands Development, West Indies Home Contractors and Coldwell Bankers staged a mini-expo at the family festival, which was hosted by JN Bank and The Voice newspaper, at Capital City Academy in north west London, on July 30.

“Patrons benefited from presentations made by housing developers, and the process to purchase a property in Jamaica was outlined to them,” said Leon Hamilton, Chief Representative Officer, JN UK Representative Office.

In addition, he said patrons were informed about the attractive interest rates offered by JN Bank and the quick turnaround time for the processing of mortgage applications.

“Many interested applicants had discussions with developers; were briefed about properties available on the market in Jamaica; and received mortgage assessments on the same day,” he informed.

The Chief Representative Officer pointed out that the festival was not only about business; as the event kicked-off the UK JA 55 independence celebrations.

Patrons were also treated to live entertainment from Grammy-nominated roots reggae singer Luciano; and local acts from the UK. They also had a chance to sample a range of Caribbean food vendor's tasty fares; received valuable health tips; participated in domino tournaments; and strolled through a marketplace, which offered handmade carnival clothing, African-inspired jewellery and books.

As a follow-on to “I Love Jamaica Day”, on Sunday, July 30th, JN Bank members in the midlands got an opportunity to interface with the JN property partners and the JN UK Representative Office mortgage team at its offices in Birmingham.
