Real estate is consistently a sensible investment for a simple reason — it places your money in a human necessity that’s always in demand. It’s also both adaptable and tangible. In addition to offering long-term investment growth, properties can also bring in rent, provide you with income when used for commercial ventures, or even serve as a permanent or seasonal home for you. Real estate can scale and adjust to the demands of practically any investor, but some investments are better than others. The Central American state of Belize is experiencing a moment right now, and it’s an incredible opportunity for current investors. Here’s why.
The Belize Barrier Reef draws tourists from all around the world, and the consistently subtropical weather ensures brisk tourism business through all four seasons — but the country’s biggest industry is agriculture. That means that there are a lot of options available contingent on what you’re looking for. Residential investments can range from high-end island condos to remote jungle cabanas — and both offer leverage to earn rental income, watch your investment grow, and even have an accessible vacation home. Both the tourism and agricultural sectors bring a ton of opportunities for entrepreneurs, while low property tax rates make undeveloped Belizean land a huge opportunity for anyone who wants a more passive investment for their portfolio.
Raw land is an especially sensible choice given the relatively undeveloped infrastructure of Belize. While there are quite a few major social hubs throughout the inland and islands of Belize — and a decent amount of airstrips connecting them — the space between can be a bit primitive sometimes. Thanks to a low population density, infrastructure is still developing. Fortunately, it’s doing so at a decent rate. Belize is one of the smallest Central American countries in terms of overall landmass as well as population density — and you can smartly leverage either developed or undeveloped properties by just waiting for infrastructure to come to you.
The government is eager to bring outside investors into Belize, and they’re willing to offer plenty of financial incentives to do so. Belize is widely recognized as a tax shelter with a number of major advantages to foreign investors. Real estate taxes are dirt cheap, and there are a number of programs that can allow you to leave your money untouched by local taxes and even have customs waived. The QRP program is a particularly appealing option for Americans looking to invest in Belizean real estate.
Belize’s real estate market is a great place for investment, but not every property out there is going to be a sure shot. Finding a reliable real estate agent with the knowledge, credibility, and catalog to help you navigate the market in Belize is critical. Hesed Realty LTD can help you financially position yourself for a windfall regardless of the scope or purpose of your investments.
