More Luxury for Less Money

More Luxury for Less Money

It’s no secret that Costa Rica houses built a few decades ago are very much different from the beautiful Costa Rica houses being built today in locales like Dominical, Uvita and Manuel Antonio. Construction costs are definitely higher, but the demand for amenities and better materials have driven the market to produce a better quality home. That said, luxury homes in Costa Rica cost far less than luxury homes in locales stateside such as Miami and Boca Raton, and you get quite a bit more natural beauty for you bucks. This is what makes Costa Rica such an amazing place to invest in. You can get gorgeous quality homes, with pools, spas and rain showers for far less than you will find in most other tropical beach locales that are known for tourism, surfing and beaches.

costa rica homes for sale Homes built just a few decades ago were likely concrete block type constructions. Now we are seeing homes being custom built with drywall. Kitchens are much improved with hot water, granite countertops and marble. Bathrooms are vastly improved with gorgeous custom tiling that is installed floor to ceiling and many include frameless showers and specialized doors that include lookouts to make the most of the property’s surroundings. Some showers are even double occupancy and Rain shower stalls are hugely popular as well. Ceilings have gone up just as prices have gone up and where past homes were built with 8 feet high ceilings, today’s Costa Rica new homes for sale are designed with higher ceilings that go up to even 12 feet! Many homes now come with top of the line appliances including stainless steel and special sinks, faucets and garbage disposal. Homes with luxury amenities here are still far less costly than luxury homes you will find in the United States or Canada, and the cost of living is much lower here making Costa Rica the ideal paradise to retire to or invest in beach property.

Real Estate for Sale in Costa Rica: Attractive Options for Retirees

Every person has his or her idea of what makes the ideal retirement location. Many pre-retirees are drawn to places where the climate is mild and senior-friendly amenities are plenty, while some favor neighborhoods close to urban centers with top-notch healthcare and entertainment facilities as well as opportunities for employment. Still others are content to stay put in their current communities and enjoy the retirement lifestyle choices and benefits in store for them.

real estate for sale in costa rica For those who decide to retire in another state or even country, comfort, security, and the availability of healthcare and other essential services are paramount. Incidentally, Costa Rica scores high on all these aspects as well as those pertaining to cost of living, retirement infrastructure, ease of integration, and real estate. A recent Tico Times article sums up the findings of an International Living report as regards the top retirement destinations in the world.
“This year’s ranking states that Costa Rica’s “legacy of year-round warm weather, as well as longtime political stability and public safety” earn the country a ranking in the top 10.
The publication also highlights the country’s health care system and states that Costa Rica “is still going strong because the country continues to tick the boxes of those looking for their place in the sun. Plus, because of its long history as an expat haven, it’s easier than ever to start a new chapter in your life.””
International Living also cites the affordable yet high standard of living in Costa Rica as a key factor why as many as 20,000 U.S. expatriates and retirees choose to take up residence in this Central American nation. It also helps that the country is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty, biodiversity, and pleasant temperatures throughout the year. Such factors make it quite clear why prime real estate for sale in Costa Rica, whether along the coast or further inland, has enjoyed stable demand from international buyers.
Whether you’re looking for an investment property or somewhere you could comfortably retire, you’ll want to work with a trusted real estate firm—such as Dominical Real Estate—that knows the local property market quite well. When considering the best options in relation to real estate for sale in Costa Rica, it certainly pays to have a reliable expert by your side.
