Buyer's Representation & The Purchase Process

With Commitment, Conviction and Focus on our clients, we guarantee you honest professional representation. Our team here at Go Slow Realty will search for you utilizing your buying parameters, to locate, recommend and expedite the negotiation process to ensure you purchase at the optimal price. Our consultants are familiar with many experts in the industry, such as lawyers, lenders, surveyors, architects if necessary, and even local contractors. We strive to find you your own slice of paradise here in Belize and ensure the purchase process is as smooth as possible.

The Purchasing Process here in Belize is not that different to the USA or UK. In Belize, once an offer has been formally accepted, a deposit is to be paid into escrow account which will include a binding Sales Agreement outlining the details of the accepted offer, payment schedule, and any other relevant terms and conditions of the transaction. A period of 30 to 90 days is permitted for each party to conduct any additional searches, due diligence, preparation of legal transfer documentation and fund allocations, etc. before finalizing the sale. Once the final payment has been made, the transfer of ownership documents will be executed for legal processing and thereafter the escrow account will be released for the seller’s access.

Important information

Monetary Rates:

Belize has a fixed exchange rate with the $USD because a stable currency is considered necessary for sustainable growth and development. The Exchange Control Regulations are essential for protecting the fixed exchange rate regime. Compliance with the Exchange Control Regulations ensures that foreign currency inflows are pooled and made available to meet the needs of the general public. Each resident contributes to safeguarding the fixed exchange rate through obedience to the law.

Payment For Purchase Of Land By Non-Resident From A Resident:

All non-residents are expected to pay for land purchased from residents with foreign currency sourced outside Belize and brought into the domestic banking system through an authorized dealer. Failure by the seller to surrender the foreign currency sales proceeds to the authorized dealer is a contravention of Exchange Control Regulation 2, unless approved by the Central Bank.
