My beat is global property investing. However, it’s not always only about making money.
Owning property in another country is as much about diversifying your lifestyle as it is about diversifying your investment portfolio.
Today I’d like to focus your attention on an overseas property opportunity that is very much about improving the quality of your life… while positioning yourself for cash flow long-term.
The opportunity I’m talking about is a development surrounded by tropical rainforests, the majestic Maya Mountains, and the Belize River Valley.
It’s a nature-lover’s paradise, with wide-open spaces crisscrossed by rivers for swimming and kayaking, rainforests for exploring and hiking, and Mayan ruins for climbing.
It’s a haven for anyone who wants to reclaim their independence while leaving the bills, cold winters, and rat race behind.
One of the best parts is that your slice of this secret Belize paradise starts at just US$35,000.
Meet Dianne—She’s Going To Be My New Neighbor Here
As way of full disclosure, I’ve purchased a lot in this community.
Recently Dianne, who bought the lot right next to mine, jumped on the phone to share her thoughts about buying into this project.
In the middle of all the current chaos, when most folks are worried sick about what the future holds, it was refreshing to hear Dianne bursting with excitement, stress-free, and practically giddy at the thought of what lies ahead when she retires to Belize next year.
She’s actually choosing to speed up her payments so she can move in sooner rather than later.
No, Dianne is not wealthy. She doesn’t have a fancy salary or portfolio of investments to fall back on. She’s a nurse from Texas with a plan in place.
As Dianne said during the call:
“A few years ago, I realized that if I wanted any quality of life that I would have to retire out of the United States… which was fine with me and exciting at the same time.
“I was looking for somewhere close enough to be able to visit my family in the States regularly.
“A place where I would be involved with people who are like-minded, open-minded, and who value community…
“Somewhere that had options for adventure, peacefulness, friendliness, and acceptance.”
She Found That In Belize—Plus A Piece Of Property For US$35K
As Dianne puts it, “I remember thinking ‘this is my kind of place, how much better could it get?’”
Less than a two-hour drive from Belize City and the international airport…
And only a short walk from San Ignacio, a charming, bustling town with a hospital, grocery stores, hotels,cafés, restaurants, and the largest Farmer’s Market in the country…
Lies a peaceful riverside community, with self-sufficiency and independence at the core of its ethos.
Gardens and orchards are interwoven with the housing lots… providing fresh, organic food for all.
Each home here is self-sufficient, too. Houses here have solar panels for electricity, rainwater harvesting, filtration systems, and gardens.
And this isn’t your parents’ idea of off-grid living… self-sufficiency technology has improved so that you can enjoy all the comforts of back home, including a big-screen TV, washer and dryer, sub-zero refrigerator if you’d like one, and of course high-speed internet.
Want a skype call with the family back home or need to take a zoom call for business? That’s no problem.
New Friendships, Good Neighbors, And Shared Values
The vision for life here is a return to what life was like in the United States in the 1950s, when people sat out every evening chatting and sharing news, enjoying each other’s company, and being part of each other’s lives…
Diane hasn’t even moved here yet, and she’s already made friends with the other residents…
On our call she told me:
“I came [in October 2019], stayed for six nights, and was able to experience what life is like living there thanks to the residents offering to take me under their wings and show me what a typical day was like.
“I’m looking forward to starting a life I’ve always wanted to live with like-minded people who come from many different backgrounds, simple, down-to-earth lifestyle, clean food, off-grid living, interacting with the community. Peacefulness.
“And the best is yet to come!”
You know me. I’m a numbers guy, but it’s not always about the path of progress, ROI, and appreciation. My home here is a legacy for my family’s future.
And while I have always valued my independence and freedom… when I bought here back in 2018, I certainly didn’t foresee just how important this project would be in 2020.
For many people, reclaiming an independent lifestyle may well become a much bigger story than any path of progress…
Again, lot prices here start at only US$35,000.
You can secure your lot with just US$7,000 down, and pay the rest interest-free, in four annual payments. If you’re not up for building your own home, you’ll also find affordable turn-key options, but there’s no pressure to build straightaway if you don’t want to.
