Three private islands in Belize are currently on the market for less than $530,000 each. It's a price point that's cheaper than the median home value in some of America's major markets, including New York City, Los Angeles, and Honolulu.The three islands vary in prices ranging from $350,000 to $525,000, according to the listing website, 7th Heaven Properties.
They are located off the Caribbean coast of Southern Belize and are either undeveloped or contain a few structures that need repairs, according to Robert Cooper, the director of 7th Heaven Properties.
Cooper also told Business Insider that the attractive price points are due to three main factors: the islands are small in comparison to other private islands and have minimal to no developments on them; there are around 200 private islands or cayes off the Carribean coast of Belize, so there are quite a few private islands for sale; and Belize's real-estate market is less developed, especially in comparison to other countries that also have large pools of tropical islands, like the Bahamas.
