Real Estate in Belize

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Oct 23, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Belize should start by researching the different areas of the country and deciding which one best suits their needs. They should then contact a local real estate agent to help them find a suitable property. Homes in Belize typically include amenities such as air conditioning, swimming pools, and outdoor patios. Many homes also come with fully equipped kitchens and modern appliances. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Belize, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own land within 50 miles of the coast or within 10 miles of the border. Additionally, foreigners must obtain permission from the government before purchasing any property.

How do I find a place to live in Belize?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Originally San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, but after 4 years it got over populated and prices went way up. Moved to the mainland Northern Belize were there is less rain and humidity and 15 minutes from Chetumal where you can get low cost everything," explained one person living in Corozal, Belize.
