Tour Belize in March 2013

I wanted to reach out to you personally and let you know about one of my goals for 2013!  That is to introduce you (or someone you are close with) to one of the coolest, and most exciting places to have a second home or retirement home!   Cocoplum, Maya Beach, Belize!   Since we’ve known each other a long time, you know I’ve been an adventurer and traveler since I was old enough to drive.   I’ve been on some really great trips and to many exotic destinations.  As a Realtor for over 20 years, I see not only a great investment opportunity here, but also a chance to help build a community of like-minded families that live life to the fullest.  As you probably already know, we invested in Cocoplum last year.

It’s not Miami and it’s not Cancun, it’s more like what they used to be 20 years ago, and that’s what we love about it!   Cocoplum, is an innovative master planned resort community, on Belize’s Placencia Peninsula with large beach and lagoon front home sites, luxurious finished homes for sale and forest reserve areas covering over two thirds of the 224 acre property.   One of the reasons we chose Cocoplum, aside from wanting to be right on the Caribbean, is that it is Eco-Friendly.  In fact, Cocoplum was honored by the World Wildlife Fund for its innovative use of mangrove hedges as an alternative to concrete seawalls. Thousands of red mangrove and buttonwood seedlings were planted along all the internal waterways and today are thriving. They provide erosion protection, a nurturing habitat for marine life, and make it a downright gorgeous community.

Well, the world didn’t end, and in my opinion, an investment in Belize is only going to get better!  You’ve probably planned for your retirement, but maybe you’re not there yet.  Why not buy a Second Home, make money, and enjoy it while you wait?   Ready to retire? Well, what are you waiting for?   I wanted to give you some info about the investment possibilities. As I mentioned, it’s not Miami or Cancun, but besides no high-rises, or Cabo-esque commercialism, the prices are much lower, there is local culture, and there is plenty to do in Belize, whether you are there full time or just a few months out of the year.

Ready to buy?  I would love to help you do that if you wanted to, Still a ways off from retirement?   Why not consider the option of buying now, using your villa when you want and renting it out when you are not there, that’s what we do!   Please read this blog post on Cocoplum’s website about the Rental Possibilities

In fact, have you heard about the SELF DIRECTED IRA CHECKBOOK PROGRAM?   Why not diversify your retirement account portfolio with real estate and actually be able to do something with your investments rather than just see how much it’s gone up or down on your computer screen?  I can get you more info on this program as well, just let me know.

IMG_0546I am putting together a tour of the community and a seminar about buying in Belize between March 16th through the 19th.   I would be able to provide discounted accommodation in the one of the Beach Villas, and an itinerary to get to know the area over those four days. After the seminar, I encourage you to continue on with your vacation at some of the other fine resorts on the Peninsula.  If you are interested in attending, please contact us through the website.  And, if you can’t make it, please feel free to forward this on to someone else you may know who might be interested.  I look forward to catching up with you soon!  In the meantime feel free to check out my website Cullen Properties Belize for more info and an interactive lot map or for even more reasons, go straight to the Cocoplum website.
