Beachside Caribbean Real Estate is More Affordable Than You Might Think in Belize
Don’t let friends and family rain on your parade when you dream about owning beachfront Caribbean property. In fact, there’s nothing stopping you from finding your own sugar-white beach–attached to the deed you sign when you take possession of your new Belize home–and there are at least four great reasons you can share when you inform everyone of your plans to move south:
-Belize is eminently affordable and lavishes ex-pats with benefits not found elsewhere.
-Your new life will begin in a nation that’s only hours by plane from North America.
-Starting a business in Belize is your call if you decide retirement isn’t your cup of tea.
-You can lease your home when you’re not in residence and still retain your residency status.
Today’s best beachfront choice?
Right now, the Placencia Peninsula is hotter than hot and has become what travel editors call the ideal place to retire because the best beaches in Belize can be found there. Located in the Stann Creek District in southeast Belize, Placencia is a wonderland of diversity, natural wonders, and convenience, and since the 16-mile-long peninsula is situated just off the mainland coast, residents are in close proximity to everything they want to see, do and experience.
Proximity to everything you crave? You bet. In a nation that’s the size of the state of Vermont, you’re never far from happening hubs, Maya ruins, caves and the international airport, but you don’t have to leave the area to fill your days and nights with fun, activities and the laid-back lifestyle you read about in retirement magazines.
Settle in beautiful, lush Maya Beach
If you haven’t heard of Maya Beach, that’s no accident. Ex-pats living in this area aren’t about to give away their secret. Located around seven miles north of the village of Placencia, Maya Beach has just enough hotels, restaurants and stores to make living there comfortable but not so much development it feels crowded.
New beachfront apartments await your inspection so you have a front row seat to amazing sunrises, sunsets, festivals, a community of like-minded ex-pats and you can do it all on a shoestring. Whether a second home is your objective or that apartment on the beach meets your needs, your conduit to all-things-luxurious is Placencia’s top real estate resource: Engel and Volkers, the international firm known for matching the right property with the right investor.
The ultimate in affordability
You must see Placencia homes for yourself to understand the value you get for your dollar in Belize where everyone speaks English. Imagine yourself living in a sprawling Caribbean-style home on over 4,500 square feet of beachfront property or renting a house before you buy for around $800 a month.
Take advantage of Belize’s current status as the most talked-about place to live for anyone eager to start a new life on a pristine beach within a country that doesn’t just welcome newcomers but offers special retirement benefits not found elsewhere.
Whether you seek a new life, wish to invest in a market that is burgeoning or a hammock on a beach that’s situated in your backyard is your only objective, Engel and Volkers has your best interests at heart in Placencia, the firm that delivers affordable lifestyles and homes in a place that makes every day a vacation day.
