Furnishings, Lawnmower, Washer & Dryer, ATV, SUV and more will be negotiated, I suggest make a separate contract therefore reducing sale price so not to pay Property tax on goods not affix.

I kept a complete record of all expenses on building and upgrading ... my asking price of $179500.(usd) is a genuine Fair price, much below replacement, appraised and market value.
NOTE: The new home was built by experienced licensed Local contractors with generations of experience, plus tradesman educated in Canada/States/Europe. Most of the materials used are imported, not commonly used by Belizean contractors, making this home 'unique' in more ways than its beauty.

When comparing properties keep in mind, not all 1 acres of land on the river are equal in desire. e.g. This property has excellent cellphone reception, cablevision & internet. The land is so full of nutrients naturally, making it a gardeners dream (*its known some properties have more of a clay type dirt, or even sandy where nearly nothing will grow) and have bothersome sand-flies, also this is a non flooding location (many may say this but in fact the yard at least in part floods & the house is built on stilts). I spent 2yrs researching before I purchased this land, having lived in 4 areas prior and knowing all too well that not all properties are equal.
