Buying Property In Belize For Retirement


“Kathleen, I’ve made the decision to retire in Belize and will be travelling there mid-November. However, I would like to know what suggestions and advice you have for purchasing there. I’ve put down US$1,000 to hold a .54-acre lot. I plan to retire in 2028. Have I been too hasty in securing this lot prior to seeing it? It is refundable if I do not purchase after the tour is over.

“I’m 47, yet I don’t want to wait too late before I make a decision for my retirement location. I have 12+ prime earning years to go and want peace of mind I’m headed in the right direction.

“Looking forward to your response.”
