FAQs About Buying Property in the Beautiful Nation of Belize
After careful thought, tons of research and number crunching, you realize that there’s no time like the present to make good on your desire to shop for property in beautiful Belize. Where to start? By addressing issues that confront anyone buying a home, no matter where it happens to be built. Answers to the following questions can help you make decisions as you move forward on your journey to finding your new home in the sun.
Q: I worry that property shopping in Belize is complicated. Is that true?
A: Your search won’t be different than the ones you’ve undertaken back home each time you moved in the past.
Q: Is it true that I must be a Belize citizen to acquire real estate?
A: Nope. Non-citizens and non-residents can own property in Belize. Non-residents even retain their ownership deed.
Q: Is it difficult to get financing?
A: Not if you show proof of a regular income of any sort. While bank financing can be hard to find, as long as a lender is legitimate, you may qualify and lots of communities have their own financing options.
Q: Should I prepare for an arduous legal battle?
A: The average 30- to 90-day wait to get into your new home probably won’t phase you if you’ve bought homes before and know how convoluted the process can get.
Q: How can I be sure that buying a Belize home is a wise investment?
A: The proof is in the numbers. Investors, retirees and second home shoppers have been snapping up homes in Belize leading to the real estate surge that has contributed to rising home values.
Q: Do I need an attorney?
A: Engaging one is a prudent move, just as it would be back home. Having a legal advocate on your side could help you sleep better at night knowing details are being handled by a professional.
