Why Buy Real Estate in Belize
Belize is a great investment in real estate. Why not own a tangible asset outside the U.S. in a country with great investment fundamentals? It’s an English speaking country and only two hours from the U.S., and less expensive than other Caribbean countries, since it is relatively undiscovered. For that reason, the values are going up. Nowhere else can you find such pristine natural resources in an area that has been a well-kept secret for so many years, until now. Move to Belize.
Orchid Bay, offering Villas, Condominiums & Land in an established community
Orchid Bay is a new development in the Corozal District on the northern tip of Belize. It’s right on the Bay of Chetumal and is a master-planned community on 114 acres. It also has 4,500 feet of oceanfront property. Each unique neighborhood is connected with pedestrian walkways, canals, and bike trails. You won’t find rigid deed restrictions anywhere. You’ll see gentle lighting at night for security, but not harsh enough to block out the beautiful stars. Nature is preserved here with protected green spaces and seven parks. New construction is underway for villas and condominiums, right on the water. This community is quite different from the cookie cutter neighborhoods found elsewhere.
Orchid Bay has neighborhoods with half-acre home sites, private estates with water views, beachfront Casitas, prairie-front cottages, villas, or care-free condominiums. You have your choice from these neighborhoods: Wild Orchid Way, Orchid Bay Beach Club, Ceiba Horse Field, or Town Center.
Amenities in Orchid Bay
The development offers shopping malls, restaurants, movies, tennis courts, beaches, and swimming pools. Restaurants offer waterfront dining with both local and international cuisine. There are docks for you to fish from or walk out to the end to the palapa for a spectacular sunset. Sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, fishing, and boating are available year-round. Rainforests are nearby for hiking, bird and wild life watching. Explore ancient Mayan ruins in Cerros or visit the Shipstern Reserve for a fantastic butterfly display.
Since a large population of baby boomers are retiring or will be retiring in the near future, they are looking at cost of living, lifestyle, and possibly owning a second home. Retire in Belize where cost of living is still low for waterfront property, compared with other Caribbean islands or property in the states. The lifestyle Belize offers is almost impossible to match compared to other places. Because of the buying power of the U.S. dollar versus the Belize dollar, (the U.S. dollar is 2:1), the U.S. dollar goes much further. Title insurance is available and property titles are fee simple. Buying property in Belize is easy. You don’t even have to be a Belizean citizen. Belize offers expatriates Tax incentives for Belize retirement.
