Before I post this, I want to say I'm not associated with Emory King in any way (except that I know him slightly and admire him greatly).
Anyway, Emory is selling out his Tropical Park development at around mile 15 of the Western Highway, where he's lived for most of his life in Belize (he was shipwrecked in Belize in the mid-1950s and stayed on.)
You can buy a lot for US$3,000 (or as little as US$1,500 if you buy several). Put a little Mennonite house on it, and you've got a pretty nice place to live for around US$15K or so.
Emory's also putting his house - really nice! -- on the market for I think US$375,000 asking price.
Here's Emory's info -- more info on the free real estate listings section of my web site, www.belizefirst.com
LOTS IN TROPICAL PARK OFF THE WESTERN HIGHWAY: US$1,500 TO $3,000:
Some years ago I established a subdivision at Tropical Park, 15 miles west of Belize City. It is a place where I have lived for 45 years. The subdivision contained 802 residential lots, land set aside for commercial property, parks and playgrounds. There are now 330 residential lots still unsold, most of them on the best land in the area. Each lot is 60 feet wide and 130 feet long. The dirt road are in, the lots are surveyed and permits have been issued by the Government. Residential lots have been sold for US$7,500 ($15,000 Belize). At this time I want to sell out everything. I am soon 75 years ago. My wife will soon be 70 and has lung cancer.
In order to accelerate the sales of these lots I am offering them at the following prices.
One lot to ten lots $3,000 US ($6,000 Bz) each
Eleven lots to 100 lots $2,500 US ($5,000 Belize) each
101 lots to 330 lots $1,500 US ($3,000) each
If you want to buy the entire 330 lots at one time I will include the commercial property free. Terms are cash for each lot and the buyer must pay the legal and transfer fees. You may reach me at email@example.com or call me at 501-610-1798 to arrange an inspection.
