What is the first step in purchasing property?
Please go to our Purchasing Instructions page on our website and follow the simple steps. Just fill out the Parcel Purchase Request Form and we will slowly walk you through the process.
 
 
 
How often is the website updated with current pricing and sales information?
The prices and properties on our website are all up to date. Our website is updated as parcels are reserved and sold. For specific parcel availability, please email us at contactus@progressoheights.com or call us toll free in the U.S. at 1-888-BELIZE 4 U (1-888-235-4934).
From outside the U.S., we may be reached at 561-859-1433.
 

 

 

 
How are deposits and down payments held?
Deposits and down payments are held in escrow pending closing by the escrow agent. The escrow agent is authorized to disburse to you all money you have paid prior to closing in the event of our failure to convey title.
 

 

 

 
What is the difference between a deposit and total down payment?
The deposit that you are referring to is a 10% deposit to reserve a parcel for purchase to be applied towards your down payment should you wish to finance your purchase. The down payment is the total amount required as a down payment for the parcel of your choice. Should you wish to proceed, you first send a 10% deposit and then at closing you will be instructed to send the remaining difference, if you choose to finance your purchase. If you do not choose to finance, you would first send a 10% deposit and then at closing, you would send the balance of the purchase price, equaling the remaining 90%.
 
 

 

 

Can foreigners purchase property?

Yes, foreigners (non-Belizeans) can purchase property in Belize.
 

 

 

 

What is the size of each parcel?

Please visit the Master Development Plan section and click on the parts of the map you wish to view. Each rendering will show parcel size in square foot and dimensions.
 

 

 

 
When do I receive title?
After closing you will receive the original Transfer Certificate of Title or registered Land Certificate. If your purchase is financed, we will send you documentary evidence of your ownership of your parcel(s). After the mortgage is satisfied, a Transfer Certificate of Title or registered Land Certificate will be sent to you.
 

 

 

 
 
Can I have confidence and peace of mind when purchasing property in Belize?

Yes, you can have confidence and peace of mind when purchasing property in Belize. We want our purchasers to feel completely comfortable. Please contact the Belize attorney processing the closing documents, Mr. Wilfred P. Elrington of Pitts and Elrington, Attorneys-At-Law located at 50 North Front Street, Belize City, Belize. Mr. Elrington will answer your questions regarding the procedure for transferring title in Belize. He may be reached by phone at 011-501-203-2577 or by fax at 011-501-223-2579.


If you are looking for a relevant Government office in Belize, please contact the Belize Government Ministry of Lands, located in Belmopan (the Capital of Belize) at 011-501-822-2331. All records are public information and are easily accessible. In addition, you may get further feedback from the Department of the Environment in Belmopan at 011-501-822-2816 and the Land Utilization Authority in Belmopan at 011-501-822-3419. Both offices are very familiar with our project.

When purchasing you receive fee simple title to your parcel. Belize is a British Commonwealth, with similar laws to the U.S. Belize also has a stable government with a growing economy.

 

 

 

 
May I place a deposit to "lock in" the current price until I can visit the property and make a selection?
No, we advise you to visit the property, make your selection and then place a deposit on the parcel you wish to purchase.
 

 

 

 
What are the forms of payment?
We accept Cashier’s Checks, Certified Checks or personal checks as forms of payment for deposits. For closing payments we accept Cashier's Checks or Certified Checks. Unfortunately we do not accept credit cards as a deposit or down payment for a parcel. Monthly mortgage payments, if applicable, may be made with a personal check.
 

 

 

 
 How can I find out which parcels are available?
Please visit the Master Development Plan and Parcel Price List section of our website for parcel availability.
 

 

 

 
Can I visit the property before purchasing?
Yes, you are more than welcome to visit the property at any time before purchasing. Please email us or phone us to coordinate your trip so we may help you make arrangements to have someone show you around.
 

 

 

 

How many parcels may I purchase?
You may purchase as many parcels as you would like. There is no regulation limiting the number of parcels purchased. If you are purchasing contiguous parcels, you may combine the allowable building square footage to build a larger dwelling. See our Building Guidelines for more details.
 

 

 

 

 
May I take title to a parcel in a corporate name?
Yes, you may take title to a parcel in a corporate name. Please be advised that you must stamp the closing documents with your corporate seal.
 

 

 

 

 
Is it easy to purchase property abroad?
Yes, it is very easy to purchase property abroad. The Government of Belize allows foreigners outside their country to own property in Belize. All titles are fee simple and title transfer is registered with the Government of Belize. We can also finance your purchase. Purchasers qualify for financing as long as the minimum down payment requirements are met. For a step by step guide through the purchasing process, please visit the Purchasing Instructions section and then fill out the Parcel Purchase Request Form noting the parcel(s) of your choice, we will then confirm your parcel selection(s) and walk you through the process.
