Making a decision to buy real estate outside the U.S. can be a scary proposition—especially if you’ve read articles about how expensive it is to acquire property in places like Costa Rica and areas of Mexico. And even the most secure North American may worry about safety and language difficulties.
Happily, there’s a small, safe, secure, affordable haven that has begun to attract investors and expats like crazy. That place is Belize, and with property values holding strong, transplanting yourself to a place more familiar than you may have imagined could turn out to be one of the best moves you’ve ever made. Besides, English is Belize’s first language so no need to sign up for Babble language courses!
