Depending on how much house hunting you’ve already done, you may have a specific image that comes to mind when you think of houses in Costa Rica. Those who aren’t truly familiar with the country and its diversity tend to visualize either one of two types: a local’s home with open windows and bright, contrasting colors, or an affluent foreigner’s vacation home with columns, custom architecture, and a pool. Sure, you’ll find both of these “stereotypical” properties throughout the listings, but neither defines Costa Rica real estate. The market features the aforementioned in addition to so much more. If you had it in your head that you weren’t going to find what you were looking for here, do us a favor and let us prove you wrong.
What sounds like the investment you’re after? Is it a fixer-upper where you can bring your own skill and artistry to the land and turn a house into a home? Maybe it’s a turn-key property that’s furnished from the décor to the utensils. A beachfront condo is a great option for those who want to have a simple retreat every so many months. Let us discuss what you value in a home, and equally important, what you dislike. Whether you’d love to be just close enough to hear the ocean roar at night or be near a major city, we will help you put your eyes on every property that meets your criteria. This way, you can be confident in your decision.
Of course, you’ll come across listings that you’ll be able to immediately rule out based on one glance alone, be it because of the asking price, location, look, or what have you. At the same time, if we can offer you one piece of advice, it’s that some properties are worth a second look. House hunting can be a lot of things, but one thing it’s typically not is quick.
