Seniors are getting squeezed in a lot of ways these days.  Higher costs, lower savings rates, and uncertain markets are creating concern and even panic in some cases.  While I am an advocate of taking a look overseas as a way to achieve a higher quality of life on a limited budget, there are some alternate solutions as well.

My friend Sarah Lancaster has written an article listing the 5 best books on the market today for seniors with concerns about financing their retirement.  Ben Stein is one of the authors with his typical no nonsense approach to reality. Take a look at the link and check out some of the books.

In 1996, Michael K. Cobb and his business partner formed a company, Exotic Caye International, to provide loans to North Americans purchasing properties in Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, and throughout the region. With a strong focus on consumer need, Mr. Cobb accurately predicted the growing demand for high quality, residential product for North American "baby boomer" retirees in the region. He led the group into real estate development and created a holding company called ECI Development for several properties, including a resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Michael speaks at dozens of international conferences annually about offshore real estate finance, development, and ownership. He was a consultant to The Oxford Club, hosted a weekly radio program, contributes regularly to overseas publications, sits on the board of several international companies, gives counsel to various real estate projects throughout Central America, and serves on the Board of Directors and the President’s Advisory Group for the National Association of Realtors, NAR.
