Close your eyes and imagine yourself owning a condo on a beach in Belize where the retirement age for people from the U.S. is only 45-years-old! It’s not a scam nor a pipe dream. Name another nation on the Caribbean rim eager to welcome you as a resident before your 50th birthday!
If you’ve never heard of the Belize Qualified Retirement Program before now, the details could astonish you. All you need to be eligible to relocate is $2,000 in verified monthly income and a completed Ministry of National Security background check form.
Bring everything you own with you. Your car. A boat. If you own a plane, that can come, too. As long as you ship them to your new condo in Belize within the year, you can forget about import duties and taxes. Where to live? Have we got a condo for you!
Cerros Sands, located along the coastline of Belize’s Corozal District, has become an epicenter for people looking for retirement and investment opportunities once they learn about this up-and-coming community that was formerly Belize’s best-kept secret.
Cerros Sands is close to Mexico, a couple of hours by plane from the U.S. and whether you have reached that 45th milestone or not, you’ve got to see this area to believe it. Cerros Sands browsers can take a buyer’s tour that makes them eligible for $2,000 in rebates if the exploratory trip turns into an “I’ve got to live here!” visit.
As of this writing, there are only two units left; both of them are elegant, roomy and representative of tropical living where clocks are rarely consulted, unless residents are scheduled to meet friends at Blackbeard’s Beach Bar and Restaurant. This gathering place is where locals hang out and newcomers are welcomed with open arms.
Stop what you’re doing. Take a look at these condos: The Mariner starting at US$199,000 and the K’inich Ahau (condos #1 and 2) ranging in price from $269,000 to $279,000. Yes, the prices are real, as are the amenities and features designed to meet the standards of retirees and investors. The two-story condo is most desirable because investors can occupy one unit and rent the other.
There are no downsides to choosing either of these condominiums for your retirement home, vacation home or portfolio since they both offer everything ex-pats crave: Superior construction, a safe community and proximity to everything from water sports and cultural events to miles of sugar-white beach overlooking a turquoise sea.
You don’t have to be 45 to join the Cerros Sands community because people of all ages are finding this idyllic paradise now that word has begun to spread, but if we have sparked your desire for early retirement by suggesting it, we take all the credit. That said, we stress that waiting could cut short your dream. You’ve got to visit. One of these condos is meant for you, and it’s not nice to keep your new neighbors waiting at Blackbeard’s!
