Cayo District Puts Belize Property on the Investment Shortlist for 2010

December 13, 2009Article by Ray Withers

The Cayo District Nature Reserve in Belize has been shortlisted as one of the best investments available on the international market, Property Frontiers has announced.

The international property investment consultancy is currently conducting analysis for its forecasts of the best destinations for property investment in 2010, and Belize property is obviously attracting their attention.

en Jeffries, a sourcing manager with the firm said:

“We love Belize, because of the unique benefits it offers, like English being the first language, and the world class health facilities. Maybe it did get a bit overpriced at the end of the recent boom, but that has been a good thing for consumers now.

As a result tourism is a massive growth sector in the Belizean economy, and property investors know that this rising tourism comes against the back-drop of a shortage of commercially available accommodation. This means that privately rented properties in Belize are in increasing demand. This is increased further still by the fact that tourists seeking out their own flights and accommodation using the internet is becoming more commonplace.
