Costa Rica Real Estate by Owner

By: Cerro Fresco

Many people are finding that with the Costa Rica real estate boom, purchasing property in Costa Rica is a great investment. However, there are a variety of different ways that you can purchase property when you purchase in this country. You can choose to purchase property that is listed with a broker, or you can purchase real estate that is for sale by owner. However, you may be wondering if Costa Rica real estate by owner is really the right choice. So, let's take a closer look at Costa Rica real estate by owner, the benefits of purchasing it, and the negative aspects of buying property in Costa Rica this way.

There are definitely some benefits to purchasing Costa Rica real estate by owner. One of the main benefits is that you won't have to go through a broker and you won't have to pay the fees to the broker either, which can definitely save you some money. Also, in some cases, when you purchase from the actual owner, you can get a much better deal. With the laws in Costa Rica, often Costa Rica real estate by owner has better ownership rights as well, depending on the property that you purchase. Of course while there are some benefits, there are some negative aspects to consider as well.

There are several different negative aspects to purchasing Costa Rica real estate by owner. First of all, when you purchase right from an owner, it is much easier to get scammed. The last thing you want to do is to pour money into a property that you never actually end up owning. When you have a broker, this is less likely to happen. Also, it can be more difficult to make these purchases from far away when you don't have a broker as well.

So, as you can see, when it comes to Costa Rica real estate by owner, there are both pros and cons. However, if you can make the transaction in person, it may be a deal that is well worth it.
