Invest in Belize Real Estate on Ambergris Caye

Posted by Valeria Espinoza on Feb 19, 2013 11:30:06 AM

Those that want to invest in Belize real estate may find it hard to choose where the location is going to be. Baymen Garden is easily one of the premier places for buying Belize real estate. Grand Baymen is a great choice in the area and it has become a magnet for anyone that wants to live in paradise. The cool and blue waters flowing between the mainland of Belize and the island of Ambergris Caye calls to that part of everyone.

Tax Structure

The first and foremost consideration for anyone that is thinking about investing outside of the United States is the tax structure. This is very easy to deal with between Belize and the United States. There are even ways that income from outside the country can be either not taxed or taxed at a rate that is lower than it would be under normal circumstance.

This is the type of incentive that makes investing that much easier and can also help find buyers or renters for Ambergris Caye rental and investment properties. It is not a tax free environment, but it is close to not having multiple taxes set upon the same income. This is most important for attracting attention and buyers to the properties that you are acquiring. A person within a certain income level can move to Ambergris Caye without paying any additional taxes and can even avoid many of the fees that apply to bringing their current property to Belize.

Constant Revenue

It is important when looking at real estate potential to gauge whether it is going to be a one-time profit or a source of continued revenue. When you invest in Belize real estate, you are actually filling both functions with the same investment. There is obviously a chance to buy and resell the same property within a two years period and make a good profit. At the same time, the loan market is liquid enough that investors can almost double their initial monthly expense through rental income.

The fact that the local banking market wants a fifty percent down payment for most condo loans makes it hard for some people to secure the property and for this reason your investment has become the only way for some people to live in Baymen Garden. While the supply is there, the demand has become even higher for those that have difficulty putting together the loan down payment.

An investor can also become a supplier for other investors. With the steeper down payment requirements, working within certain legal requirements, an investor can provide a “loan” to other investors that do not have the down payment for condo in Grand Baymen. This is difficult to do within the legal, but with the help of an attorney and accountant, it can be done and with a large continuing profit.

The reason to invest in the real estate market overseas is never clearer than in the Belizean markets. These are building more and more excitement in the real estate community every day and there are many ways to generate revenue and create profit. With the increased popularity that Ambergris Caye has seen recently, due to its increased technological infrastructure, there is never a better time to invest in Belize.

This is a change that will not last forever. Like any good investment opportunities, the longer it waits and the higher the number of investments that are made in the area will affect how well the investment performs. It is for this reason that everyone should take the opportunity and invest now in Baymen Garden.
