house with balcony San ignacio – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingIf you are buying a home in Belize, I really suggest for you to check everything and do your homework. Find out as much information as you can possibly get. If all that still doesn’t suffice, I suggest that you come down here to Belize and live here for several months before you actually buy.
 
I have seen people who maybe thought that they have the property that they wanted and then they find out after a year or two that it is not what they really thought. It is not like they do not like Belize as a whole, but it is just that they bought at the wrong spot. Some people move to Corozal and later on find out that that is not where they are happy. Then they come to San Ignacio and like the place and decide to sell the place they bought in Corozal.
 
I tell people to rent before you buy but also move around the country. Try different places and experience more than one location in Belize.

I would recommend renting in Belize first if you are looking at moving here. I would recommend that to anybody who is moving to a foreign country but not everybody does that. Some people come to Belize, buy a house, then later on they realize that they do not like the location, so they sell and buy a different house in another location.

YES!! You should rent a home or apartment before buying to see if you like Belize.  This is advice that I frequently give to folks who are asking what Belize is like, and if it would fit their lifestyle.  You don’t know until you test the waters for yourself.
 
Some folks know they are in the right place the instant they step foot off the plane, and others need a bit more time to scope out the area, meet the locals, and get involved in the community.  Plan to stay a month, two, three, or maybe even six in a location you think you may want to live and see how you feel at the end of your that timeframe.
