Costa Rica welcomes foreign individuals and companies to own land and property throughout the country, limited only by a 50 meter perimeter on oceanfront. The procedure for buying property is straightforward: you must check title with the National Registry and then visit the Ministry of the Environment and Energy to see about any environmental concerns. Finally, you will make contact with local municipality officials to nail down building permits and verify zoning laws.
As with everything else in life, there is always a little paperwork, which is best left to your lawyer. You can facilitate this process by working with local real estate agents. In return for your efforts, you will have access to an attractive location that encourages vacationing, investment and retirement. Tourists flock to Costa Rica to enjoy the pristine beaches, fine weather and breathtaking mountains. The native people are very warm and friendly, and are eager to share their simple yet rich culture.
The government encourages real estate investment with low taxes and economic incentives. You can start your property quest in the capital city of San Jose, where real estate agents abound. Investment and residential property is easy to locate when you use a real estate agent. An agent can lay out the different neighborhoods and the price history of each locale. The popularity of Costa Rica makes it especially important to research the demand for any given property, which will be reflected in the asking price. Agents often save their best properties for serious investors who understand the unique popularity of this Latin American hot spot.
Within San Jose, many investors have been attracted to quality areas such as Sabana, Sabanilla and Montes de Oca. Every year, more neighborhoods become desirable as the economy of the country improves. While San Jose is a good starting point for your property search, you should feel free to explore the many other desirable areas of the country. The Central Valley provinces of Alajuela and Heredia are especially attractive to foreign investment.
