Does anyone find it strange that we now have over 30 realtors on the island with half of them selling pie in the sky houses/condos to be built in areas that may never get electricity-go to www.atlasinternational.com for example- when asked a realtor told me it is his job to sell and receive the commissions it is not his job to figure out if the property is going to be built/whether the developers actually own the land/whether planning has given their approval.
we have a few saying they have been here and making govt contacts for the past few years when they have been here for less than 6 months.
I would be very wary from buying anything from anyone unless they have been here a minimum of 5 years.

So what are you selling?
Be careful as you already have 1 foot in your mouth.

AREBB and BNAR are working hard to get some real estate legislation in place so that the "fly by night" crowd will bypass Belize. Unfortunately, as long as the real Estate Bill is still being worked on we are all potential victims of groups of "realtors" purporting to have been here for years, that use unethical tactics, out and out lies, presenting pie-in-sky investment opportunities as if they are factual and basically telling a buyer what they think the buyer wants to hear - fully ignoring the facts and truths.

Absolutely, Buyer beware. Be diligent. Utilize the services of a company that has a long term, solid reputation in Belize.

There are decent investment opportunities in Belize that can be explored, but most certainly there are some risks involved. Some projects and plans are riskier than others.

As the old adage states -Usually "if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is."

We found that there are great properties, great ownership groups, great investment opportunites, and beautiful areas ready to be explored and enjoyed. But like any fast growing area, there are PLENTY of areas and people who you will want to avoid. We found the place of our dreams, just come on down and spend some time here to find your own piece of paradise. Shortcuts in that process can be costly.

belizeonthebeach-do you not like answering questions-you state you are a developer -what are you developing-you say you will be right over(that surely cannot be construed as a threat) -would you like to make an appointment-then I can guarantee I will be here-I have no idea who you are but you seem to be incredibly defensive of your profession-ps I have bought properties from 6 realtors on the island-how many have you bought from?

I too find it a little unusual that someone whose profile is a “design/builder” doesn’t take the opportunity to inform us of their commercial interests as do most other people on the board in business when they have the chance. Kind of like handed a business card when meeting someone in person.

And Pedro, just when I find an isolated reason to compliment you on your language skills, you make a statement on the other topic “everything I do impresses you” when the accurate statement would be “everything I do makes an impression”.
