Placencia Peninsula, BelizeInvest in Vacation Rental Property

What if You Were Able to Buy Property in Hawaii in 1950?

AREI’s main geographical focus is the international real estate market of southern Belize. In the wake of World War II, a population surge in Hawaii created a situation that saw much of the habitable real estate scooped up by individuals and developers. The property, neighborhoods, and houses bought when the islands were underdeveloped are now high-value investments and cash flow eruptions.

The Ground Floor in Placencia, Belize

The coastal village of Placencia in Belize mirrors the opportunity of 1950s Hawaii with Belize having some practical advantages when considering it relative to the U.S.

The emerald peninsula in southern Belize has 16 miles of real estate on the beach, and numerous small low-lying islands (cayes) just off the coast, protected by a barrier reef for prime development. For the majority of the U.S., this real estate is far closer than Hawaii, and the current price-point in Belize is like buying in 1950s Hawaii!

For U.S. investors or expats, the official language of Belize is English making it a significant benefit as the many Caribbean, and Central American countries do not claim English as their primary language. The tax benefits for investment in Placencia Village are enabled by recent legislation by the Belizean government encouraging international investors and retirees. The government is even more supportive of retiree investors going as far as to offer extensive economic benefits like tax-free pensions, capital gains, and the import of goods for relocation. Additionally, the exchange rate is 2:1 in favor of the dollar to drive down the cost of living while in Belize.
