Is Now A Good Time To Buy Belize Real Estate?
Ambergris Caye—Is there a direct relationship between the amount of tourism a nation enjoys and the health of its real estate market? The proof is in the numbers. There has been a healthy uptick in the number of tourists choosing Belize as their ports of call and vacation destinations and that increase is reflected in the nation’s real estate boom, too.
“Even the New York Times reported global interest in Belize,” said Scott Fuson, Sales Director at Ambergris Caye’s newest community, Salt life Belize. “Editors estimated a 30-percent increase in coastal area property sales and a 15-percent increase in inland property acquisitions a few years ago, and those numbers appear to be climbing.”
Why is Salt Life Belize is getting so much attention? According to Fuson, “This brand new community is located on the coast of Ambergris Caye, the nation’s most well-known destination. Ambergris Caye is considered the trendiest island in Belize, and with tourism numbers in Belize spiking in 2019, that translates to property sales.”
“I’m continually asked what there is about Salt Life Belize that is driving sales, and once I start listing perks, it’s hard to get me to stop,” adds Fuson with a laugh. “Our former American developer succeeded in acquiring 50 acres along the shoreline to create a one-of-a-kind, affordable community. Even skeptics touring our beautiful development are impressed. Once phase 1 was completed and condos became available, some of those skeptics became our most enthusiastic Salt Life Belize homeowners!”
Located in South San Pedro, the Salt Life Belize planned community features everything retirees, ex-pats and investors seek: Solid infrastructure, gorgeous views, expansive floor plan options plus a long-range community plan to add a full service resort and fly fishing lodge, beach club, restaurants, bars and tour outlets. Some sites are reserved for the building of high-end estate homes.
“It’s hard to describe the excitement we see when we tell potential buyers they won’t have to pay capital gains taxes and that unlike other nations in the area, foreign nationals can own their properties outright. Add year-round sunshine, no translation issues (Belize’s first language is English) and proximity to the U.S. for return visits via U.S. airlines and these posh units sell themselves,” adds Fuson.
A glimpse at the development’s website offers browsers opportunities to see how many benefits each condo offers–from roomy floor plans to fully-appointed kitchens and bathrooms–these units showcase the very best Salt Life Belize has to offer at surprisingly affordable prices. Website visitors can call the development’s toll-free number to ask questions about availability at 1-800-669-6970.
“We hear the excitement in people’s voices once we fill them in on the details of the community’s progress and share with them the number of natural wonders they gain access to as a result of moving to this wonderland,” Fuson enthuses. “And, we stay busy giving tours of our growing community because so many people calling us can’t wait to see the development for themselves. You wouldn’t believe how many of them say that we don’t lie when we call Salt Life Belize paradise!”
Salt Life Belize’s development is founded upon the concept of creating an extensive, affordable Caribbean paradise using American ingenuity to deliver the designs and features that appeal to retirees and investors. Salt Life Belize’s multiple components and unit options are available for purchase and the entire community is slated to be completed in 2022. For more information about availability and the community’s progress, call 1-800-669-6970, ask for Scott Fuson or any member of the Salt Life Belize sales team.
