Buying Property in Costa Rica – Tips for Investment

Costa Rica Real Estate

The Costa Rica real estate market often fluctuates between the oversupply of new construction projects, and demand from the U.S and other foreign buyers. They come to Costa Rica on vacation, fall in love with the country, and want to buy.

Due to the absence of official house price statistics, it’s hard to assess the exact movements of house prices in Costa Rica… but this may be a benefit for those willing to do some extra searching.
In this video, I talk with two successful real estate investors about opportunities in the Costa Rica real estate market.

Topics in this video include: investing in Costa Rica real estate,
the Costa Rica real estate market 2019, best real estate deals in Costa Rica, and buying real estate in Costa Rica 2019.

  1. Great content. We live and operate the #1 rated restaurant in playas del coco, Guanacaste (fyi-for sale or franchise) and can offer this suggestion. If you want to make money from your investment purchase or build ‘commercial’ not residential. If you want rental income on your residential property investment at least hire a property management firm to handle the day to day issues that will arise. If you simply fall in love and want a legacy residential property to gift your grandchildren you will be in good company. Pura Vida

  2. The Americans have destroyed the real estate market in Costa Rica, almost all homes up for sale are grossly over priced. and watch out for scammers.

  3. Costa Rica looks gorgeous! There’s some interesting tips in this video. I certainly think Costa Rica is an up and coming place. It’s super high on my bucket list, anyway. I can see more people choosing to go on vacation there and investment is always about looking for up and coming to get the best ROI.

  4. was not thinking of investing into real estate anywhere, but this video made me consider studying and thinking about it, have not been to Costa Rica, but those waves look awesome!!

  5. Hm, the properties actually cost more than I thought in Costa Rica. It would be nice to own property there but I don’t think I would be able to put in the work to do the research. Sounds like you’d have to live there for a bit to get the feel of the real estate market.

  6. People I live and own property down here. I will give you the straight up on this topic… if you fall in love with it rent! There’s many great deals on rentals all over
    If you find a nice property and want it as a vacation home and it’s something you can pass on to family and such and buying it is not going to put a dent on your pocket well ok, there are amazing deals on properties
    But never buy something down here thinking you will make money on it let alone get you’re money back
    Ain’t going to happen
    Pura Vida

  7. its a paradise for scammers,,..a pairofdice for the wary and those who believe theyre a cut above the average..and a nightmare for anyone who believes the bs ..sells the house and takes the nest egg on down to hand it over wagging their puppy tails and expecting a fair shake …

  8. Really interesting video. I don’t think I would ever consider moving here, but I would certainly love a vacation here.

  9. Decent return is fast for any real estate investment. But what does decent mean? 5% or 30%? Doing research about the market is paramount. Estate agents will tell you what you want to hear – they are mainly paid commission. So you need to be smart and do your own due diligence.

  10. When you see bars on every home that’s not in a gated community, you know the crime is really bad. The U.S. investors destroyed any value to be had down there. Paying cash isn’t an option for 90% of the would be buyers. The locals target Americans with “Gringo” pricing and makes it a horrible risk to buy. We haven’t even gotten to the extreme pricing of anything at the store.

  11. Costa rica looks similar to spain. Does costa rica. Government open for any nationalities who wants to buy a house and lot?

  12. Well I have learned that if you want to buy a home the best and cheapest way is to stay away from real estate investors those guys a fucking bozos and thieves

  13. that’s very informative…. i would buy one if i have money since the area is not that commercial..beautiful place… 😀

  14. Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting to play than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. I found chess to be so repetitive that any clever player could easily master the moves to a point they could even play against opponents blindfolded. It is for this reason I invented a game where every game is always a new challenge and exciting to play.

    Ruvol is played almost somewhat like chess. The kind of people who play chess will be the same kind of people who will play Ruvol. I invented Ruvol primarily to give chess a direct “apple-to-apple” competition. Right now, there is no other board game in the world within the same category of chess “where chess players can switch to.” Chess is entirely a monopoly in its class. And Ruvol will change that!

    In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$5 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale is US$40M.


    For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, I find it “wiser and faster” to simply sell my copyright.

    If you are interested to buy my copyright, email me your BEST PRICE OFFER—[the copyright goes to the highest bidder]. My email address is: rodolfovitangcol@gmail.com. [Or perhaps you can help me find a buyer, and I’ll reward you with a commission.]

    Early bird catches the worm!

    The Ruvol Inventor

  15. This is a very interesting story to tell, I have been a tenant for a very long time because I was working as a foreman for a construction company in New Jersey, My wife was a high school teacher and we have a son, we were happy as a family but not very happy because we need a place to call our home, actually, I will say a very nice house we can buy with a well furnished parlor and a lovely Fair sized house built of red Lyons Sandstone with the most god-awful-looking picket fence I’d ever seen. Well, it was not possible to achieve at first because our income was not high enough to purchase such luxury, I worked 9 to 5pm and also do the extra job to earn money to enable my family to have a comfortable life, it was not as easy as it seems, you should understand what I mean if you are struggling to have a home as a well affordable house it can be a Flat, Single-family (detached, Condominium, Apartment, Co-op, Town home, Bungalow, Ranch-Style, Cottage, Cabin, Chalet, Tiny home, Mansion, Contemporary Mansion, etc. I have to say nothing is impossible if you take the right decision and consult the right company or organization that will give you a lifetime opportunity to become a landlord of your dream home without no loan or unfavorable contract that will be a burden which comes with a mortgage high enough to rip your brain apart, well there is good news for everyone Low-income earners or high earners, Non-citizen or legitimate Citizen can benefit no one is exempted from these wonderful benefits, I was so skeptical about sharing this news because I just don’t know if it was proper to do so, but my conscience keeps hunting me if I do not share this good news to those who urgently need to be a landlord owning a property and be free from paying rent. well my friend told me about this construction company (www.woodpipex.com) they made my life meaningful I just contacted them via their official website, chat room, or there company direct MAIL (sales@woodpipex.com) that decision I took changed my life
