Costa Rica Condo New Homes for Under US$100K
But when people looking for new homes in Costa Rica meet with a real estate agent who insists on showing them expensive homes and apartments in the most expensive areas, the visitor goes 'back home' thinking that new condo homes in Costa Rica are expensive... Wrong!
I know many people that have bought Costa Rica condos (or built their own) very comfortable homes for around US$100K and they're delighted. Their real estate may not be located in the most exclusive areas of the country but is your own home now located in 'the' most exclusive area? Or do you perhaps live in a typical middle class area like most of us?
We must remember that an average middle class 'Tico' family will consider a US$100-150K home in the same way that you might think of a $500K home so there's obviously a huge selection of condos in this country being built specifically to cater to those home buyers with that budget in mind...
If I was to come to your home town and meet with the real estate agents who had all the fancy advertising in your area... I'd probably end up buying a more expensive piece of property than I would have done if I had sat down with you as my 'friend' and asked for your help in finding a great property, right?
The same applies to property in this country...
Why? Because you're not trying to sell me anything, yet you have the intimate, real life 'insider' knowledge about your area that I need.
You know the best, most affordable condo developments, the most romantic restaurant that you and your spouse always go to on your anniversary and you know all about the schools and ... You are helping me as a friend and not expecting a commission!
That's my job! I'm your 'amigo' in this country. I'm here to Help-U-Search and help educate and protect you so that you make an informed decision about property in this country but ...
You've heard me say it before - As far as real estate in Costa Rica is concerned - I would strongly recommend that you REALLY take a good look around before you buy real estate. This one simple piece of advice has saved people millions of dollars ...
I am not a real estate agent, I have no burning desire to sell you anything and already make a great living so I don't mind if you never buy anything from me ... However, I do mind if you end up making a poor decision because of bad advice and then end up unhappy in this country.
'La Nacion' is by far the biggest Spanish language newspaper in Costa Rica and I always buy La Nacion especially on Saturdays to see the real estate supplement and take a look at some of the real estate advertisements.
Now I must point out that I have not visited most of these projects and some of them may be no more than a simple, concrete box but you have to start somewhere.
I have only seen a few of these in person and most of them in the newspaper so I can NOT personally recommend any of these developments but, they are all brand new homes and some of them have been built by very reputable Costa Rica construction companies...
There are tens of thousands of properties for sale and you'll be able to see many more listed on the www.nacion.com website but here's a handful of them for you...
As you can see though, not all of these Costa Rica condo developers have websites.
