Did you know that our MLS is a unique option for your search for a rural hideaway property? Rural Costa Rica is much safer than rural North America is.
During the Covid 19 pandemic, many realize that they are ready to make a change in their lives. They are looking for a safe lifestyle. Costa Rica offers a perfect solution if you want to live in the countryside so you can stay away from everyone else at a very reasonable cost.
Of course, we also offer beachfront property, downtown San Jose penthouses, and building lots in gated communities. But if you want to be safe, and stay away from everyone else, you’re at the right address.
Our MLS network has 28 affiliate agencies, from coast to coast. These agencies have lots of rural hideaway property for sale, of all sizes and prices.
Now, if you really want to go off the grid, we have that too. Each agent has the local knowledge to get you settled and going, safely!
I remember Y2K very well. You do too? We got flooded by thousands of people freaking out with the idea of getting stuck in the wrong place. If you don’t remember, this article will give you an idea of what Y2K was all about.
Most who moved here 6 months before Y2K, rented. Because they knew, that if the bug wouldn’t take over all the computers in the world, they would go back to their normal life, back home. And that’s what they did. Now we’re in a similar situation. And for sure there will be an after Covid-19.
I’m definitely not an expert on the matter of bugs. Or viruses. I’m a real estate expert. I’ve been doing this since the 1980s, right here in Costa Rica. So, if you are interested in buying a property in Costa Rica, so you can safely stay away from any bugs (except mosquitos, flies, and cockroaches), nobody can assist you better than the members of our network of realtors.
Costa Rica has lots of rural property, away from the city. You really want to grow your own food, you are in the right place. You stick it on the ground and it grows. That’s because our volcanic soil is as fertile as the soil can be.
BUT, many of those rural properties don’t have American style homes on them. Now, if you think you can live in a Tico house, great. This blog explains more, so you understand the difference between a Tico home and an American style home.
No worries, all our agents have connections with builders in their area. They will assist wherever they can. You do need to understand that building a home, no matter which country you live in can be a pain in the butt.
You don’t want to bother with building your custom home? You’d hate to put up with controlling a builder and his employees every day? And knowing when to make the payments to your builder or not? Then you can always go prefab or even container home.
Check here for container homes. There is a large amount of prefab and modular home builders in Costa Rica, check on Google now.
