Just like anywhere else, there are lots of different kinds of properties available for sale in Belize. The country imposes zero restrictions on foreigners owning, buying, or renting real estate in Belize, so prospective owners from abroad are free to find their dream property.
One of the most popular places for expats and retirees is the neighborhood of Cerros Sands in Corozal District. A true “community in the country,” Cerros Sands is a master-planned, gated community offering residents modern comfort and amenities in a gorgeous Caribbean setting.
Cerros Sands is located in Belize’s north Corozal District just across the water from the popular tourist island of Ambergris Caye and all of the exciting activities on the reef, including sailing, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Corozal District is home to some of the most beautiful natural areas in the country where residents can enjoy bird watching, nature hikes, swimming, and visiting animal sanctuaries, national parks, and ancient Maya cities.
Residents of Cerros Sands also have easy access to the Mexican border town of Chetumal. Located just 7 miles by water and 24 miles by land, Chetumal has everything you’d expect in a large city, including low-cost pharmacies, health care facilities, and familiar retailers like Home Depot, Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Sally’s Beauty Supply.
Cerros Sands, however, is an oasis of natural beauty and tranquility located right on the shores of Chetumal Bay. Cerros Sands is built on entirely “green” principles, allowing residents to live entirely “off the grid” thanks to sustainable energy sources. Cerros Sands residents from Canada, Europe, and the United States benefit from a low cost of living in an unspoiled natural paradise with easy access to the international airport and a duty-free zone.
Cerros Sands has a wide variety of properties and undeveloped lots for sale. Cerros Sands has condominiums, which make for great vacation homes or rental property. Cerros Sands also has lovely homes that are “off the grid” and completely self-sufficient. Cerros Sands also has lots near and on the marina that are perfect for businesses. There are also beachfront lots, beachview lots, and parcels with deepwater channel access (perfect for boat owners) starting at just $17,700.
Belize places no restrictions on foreigners owning or renting property, making an investment in real estate highly lucrative. With the tourist industry experiencing double-digit growth, the vacation rental industry is also experiencing a boom. And Belize imposes zero capital gains taxes.
