Belize Homes for Sale

There is a wide variety available to choose from when looking for homes for sale in Belize. You can find great options on your own by simply choose where you’d want your future address and start your hunt. You can usually go about house-hunting in the local newspapers or through your own hands-on research by driving around the area to spot empty homes and asking locals for recommendations. However, the easier route is almost always to consult a real estate broker to find the best opportunities. You can easily do research beforehand on brokers by searching online. A reliable agency with a wide variety of property options all across the country is CPC Real Estate Solutions (feel free to take a look at their extensive Belize real estate listings).

Belize Islands for Sale

Often times when we think of the Caribbean, the main image that comes to mind is one of a beautiful island surrounded by the warm, glistening sea. Belize is the perfect place to bring that image to life. Presently, there is a considerable amount of islands for sale in Belize that, like any other property option for sale, also ranges in price depending on the amount of development already on the island.

Belize has islands for sale that are blank canvases ready for you to develop to your liking or you can find islands that are already developed and have homes or resorts on them, giving you a ready-made business opportunity. All the islands line Belize’s coast and are adjacent to the second largest barrier reef in the world, which makes them very near to fun water attractions like snorkeling, diving and fishing.

Before considering the purchase of any island in Belize, you should hire a lawyer because you will need one to ensure the island is indeed up for sale and that it has a deed of title. You would also need approval from the Ministry of Natural Resources before you can make any property purchase and having a lawyer and broker on-hand to deal with these matters would make the process a lot easier.

Farm & River Property for Sale in Belize

Although it’s often times downplayed by the popularity of Belize’s coastline properties, inland Belize is equally as tranquil and scenic. Belize offers buyers many options scattered within its boundaries to choose from whether you prefer acres of raw land, farms complete with livestock and vegetation, or river-front homes.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Mayan Mountains and enjoy the sounds of the birds and other wildlife nearby. The peaceful environment delivered by properties laying inland Belize is a nature lover’s paradise.

The inland properties are a lot cheaper than those along the coast. You are free to let your creativity take over with a purchase of raw land to create your dream home on or you can purchase a turn-key property that is ready to welcome you.

Belize Condos for Sale

Although not very common to find, condos are available for sale across Belize mainly in Consejo Shores, Ambergris Caye and Placencia. Condos are a great alternative to stand-a-lone homes for use as a vacation home, which lends benefits of an income property when you’re not in Belize, or for small families or couples who wish to have more amenities and the added safety of neighbors nearby in a (sometimes) gated community.

Playa del Consejo offers newly built Belize condos for sale in the popular expatriate community of Consejo Shores, Corozal located in Northern Belize. If you’re looking for a condo in southern Belize, Roberts Grove or Villas Los Porticos in Placencia are great options.

Don't be afraid to shop around!

Remember, it’s always best to shop around before making your final decision. So spend some time in Belize and get a feel for the entire country before you make your choice of where to live and start your business. There are many nice options around if you need Belize long term rentals or a guest house in Belize to accommodate your stay.

3 Ways to Purchase Belize Real Estate

  1. Deed of Conveyance - The absolute right to ownership of property. Through an application for a first registration, the Deed of Conveyance may be converted to a Certificate of Title. Any subsequent owner of the property will then be issued a Transfer Certificate of Title.
  2. Transfer Certificate of Title - A physical title to a specific portion of land. This option is sometimes more costly and time consuming that a Deed of Conveyance.
  3. Land Certificate - An absolute title applying to properties in new developments.
