You couldn't have picked a better time to check real estate. Weather-wise, September is just about the wettest month of the year, and if you want to check out real estate, that's when you will see it at its worst. If it's not under water then, it should be okay for the rest of the year, notwithstanding a storm of course.
Most real estate people would advise you to come at that time of the year so you will not buy a "pig-in-a-poke" and be unhappy.
You might want to check out Jesse as he is very knowledgable and honest. His web site is: http://www.investinbelize.com/
and you can e-mail him for ideas.
Also, there are some pretty good people at Sunrise Realty. One is Amanda. Sunrise can be found at: http://www.ambergriscaye.com/sunrise
If I were going to purchase any real estate anywhere in the Caribbean or Central America, I'd insist on seeing it during the rainy season and preferably in September.
Having said all that, I want to reassure you that Ambergris Caye has a special magic about it, and in my opinion, it's a great place to invest in real estate. You'll begin to feel that magic the minute you step off the plane in San Pedro, and then it will grow on you.
Enjoy your trip and don't forget to slow down and take in everything.
