The Top Reasons You Should Purchase a Home in Belize

Does Belize make your top 10 of the places you would most want to live? If you answered ‘no,’ it’s probably because you don’t know enough about this Central American country.  It can offer a lot to you and your family. But fear not, because you’re about to learn some of the top reasons to purchase a home in Belize.

The Beauty and Splendor of Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is a popular destination for foreigners. Many have left the hustle and bustle of big cities throughout the world to enjoy the blue sea and beach. Just to enjoy the tranquility of riding around on bikes or golf carts all day long.

San Pedro is the largest town in Ambergris Caye. It offers first-class restaurants, coffee shops, and live musicians. Enjoy fresh food, and take in the culture of Belize on Ambergris Caye.

One last tip: the word ‘caye’ means ‘island,’ so you can use that tidbit to impress your friends back home.

The Isolation and Peace of Caye Caulker

‘Island’ Caulker is for those of you out there who want to live on a sparsely populated quiet island. The island invites contemplation, meditation, and interaction with nature.

Caye Caulker is about a half-hour boat ride from Caye Ambergris. But it is smaller and has less amenities than the bigger island. But the advantage of living here is that you still have the gorgeous views and the beautiful water, and you pay less for the privilege.

Cost of Living

The cost of living in Belize is reasonable, which means your money will go further when you live here, plus you don’t lose any of the natural wonders that places such as Bermuda offer you.

And the cost of health care, building a home, auto insurance, property taxes, house labor, and transportation is far less than you would pay in a big city in the U.S. or around the world.

You can also ride a bike or walk to many destinations, which means you can ditch your gas-guzzling car.

Less Taxes To Pay

U.S. residents are used to paying taxes on just about everything, including food and income, but that isn’t the case if you move to Belize.

You will not have to pay taxes on income acquired from a foreign country, and you won’t have to worry about paying capital gains taxes, or inheritance taxes, which could be highly beneficial for your children if they choose to stay in Belize.

A Climate Made In Paradise

If you’re used to fluctuations in the weather, from cold to hot to humid, and all the damage those changes can do to your house and your car, not to mention your health, get ready to declare freedom.

That’s because the annual mean temperature in Belize is 79 degrees Fahrenheit, and the cool breeze from the Caribbean Sea tempers the humidity level.
