I rent in a lovely neighborhood full of adorable houses and cute little restaurants. I love it there but it is not cheap. The average house price is around $620K. You know what you can buy for $680K? This island. Yup.

Now, it’s only about half an acre, but that’s bigger than most lots in my neighborhood and ITS AN ISLAND. For the price of a slightly above-average home in my current neighborhood I could have my own private Caribbean island.

Obviously there would be some draw-backs to living on a tiny island. I’m sure getting any kind of house construction done there is a nightmare. But come on. Did you hear me say island?

Also interesting, you can retire under a government-sponsored program in Belize at 45. #lifegoals
