What’s Stopping You From Buying Turn-Key Real Estate in Belize?

aerial-condos-casitasDo you dream about retiring abroad, buying a lot and building a home? Ask yourself if you’re ready to navigate the construction process when an attractive alternative awaits that is free of all of the hassle: Purchase a turn-key home–just like you may have done in your hometown. Once you learn how easy the process is in Belize and you check out the availability of gorgeous turn-key homes, you won’t be the first person to abandon all thoughts of building from scratch!

Beautiful, well-constructed and outfitted homes await those who love the idea of shipping their furniture and getting it placed without having to wait for water and electricity to be run to their property, walls to be built, a roof added and inevitable delays. The community of Orchid Bay, for example, has become a model for ex-pat living in Belize, so if you’re entertaining thoughts of moving south, this is a great place to start.

At communities like Orchid Bay, all of the work is done for you, but just in case the urge to build something that’s custom remains strong, you should do just that. Opt for a turn-key purchase and you get all of the advantages you expected back home: infrastructure meets exacting standards, the variety of architectural styles is diverse—beachfront condos and waterway villas boast exteriors and interiors that are travel-magazine worthy–and when you see how beautifully appointed interiors are, you’ll wonder why you didn’t relocate to Belize years ago!

Caribbean communities seeking northern investors are popping up like jungle foliage, but finding construction that’s already complete can be difficult in many countries. Not in Belize, where English is the first language so everything about the turn-key purchase experience is understandable, so from negotiations to contracts, you won’t miss a thing.

And since real estate tax laws favor moving to Belize, you might not believe your eyes when you see your tax bills after settling in, either.

By the way, when you select a turn-key home in Belize, you won’t notice any difference between a Belize experience and the buying process with which you’re already familiar.

You tour available Orchid Bay villas and condos, negotiate the sale through a property specialist and make an offer. If the property you love is so inviting other people want it, negotiations could take longer, but English-speaking attorneys, realtors, bankers, mortgage lenders and title company staff stand ready to walk you through the process if you elect to engage them. You close, receive your keys, and you’re ready to go home.

But the best part of becoming a member of a community like Orchid Bay has nothing to do with keys: You’ll be invited into an established neighborhood of like-minded people, most of whom are from North America, too. Sound good? Take a look. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
