Are you looking for a beachfront property as a retirement venture or investment? If you are, then Belize is a great place to find exactly what you’re looking for. Belize offers sunny weather year-round, generous residency programs, and a location that is under two hours from Miami. Not only that, but Belize’s official language is English, and it is known for being very welcoming to foreigners.
Inexpensive Caribbean Destination
There are a number of reasons why Belize continues to rank as a top travel destination for people around the world. It’s located in the Caribbean, but compared to many other Caribbean destinations, Belize is inexpensive. This brings more than just high-end travelers to the country. Along with those coming in for warm beaches, there are those who want to spend time fishing and snorkeling. The barrier reef in Belize is second only to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in terms of size. When it comes to living in Belize, there is much to offer. Belize’s property taxes are low, and the currency is attached to the U.S. dollar, which is attractive to investors who don’t want foreign currency risk. Belize is also known for its stable government that encourages economic growth.
Cerros Sands Retirement Community
Located in Corozal, not far from the Mexican border, is the fantastic retirement community of Cerros Sands. This is a gated community, master-planned by an American developer that offers beachfront lots, lots with a sea view and a range of affordable homes. Corozal is one of the nicest locations in Belize with the nearby attractions of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. Also not far from Corozal is Cancun, Mexico. Residents of Cerros Sands enjoy numerous activities, quality healthcare centers and shopping right nearby.
Property Values Expected To Rise
Property values in Cerros Sands and elsewhere in Corozal Belize are expected to rise in the future due to the fact that the Government of Belize will spend $100 million dollars in roads and bridges in Northern Belize. Belize’s economy has been strong for years. Even during the Great Recession, Belize continued a 5.5 percent GDP growth. Belize is considered to have a mature tourism industry, which means that it’s well-developed, operates year-round and shows no signs of slowing down. Along with tourism, Belize’s main economic benefits come from its exports of sugar, bananas, citrus, seafood and crude oil. It also has the third-highest income per capita in Central America.
