“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’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.”
