Written by Michael Simons on . Posted in Buying and Selling Property in Costa Rica, FAQ's



Real estate transactions are among the most important and valuable events in our lives or business.  The process of buying a home or entering into a real estate investment should and can be fun and exciting, and bring us financial rewards and pleasant experiences for years to come.  However, buying property in Costa Rica requires placing large portions of assets at stake and assuming substantial personal and financial commitments.  Therefore, it is important to proceed with caution and care.  Especially when buying property in a foreign culture with a system, language and values we don’t fully understand.  It can be a frustrating experience and may seem at first fraught with risk. 

It is not necessary to be a resident to own and invest in property in Costa Rica.  The laws and constitution of Costa Rica, with the exception of property located in the Maritime Zone, affords foreign investors the same rights as nationals in the ownership of property; as long as the proper procedures are followed.  The following is designed to provide information to potential investors of all types of real property in Costa Rica about the buying process and what you should know prior to investing.

Heart Break Station

With profound sadness I have to inform you, that the princess Millie Dolores has passed away. I have had a lot of dogs, and loved them all, and have also known and loved many beautiful people, but nothing has ever come close to capturing my adoration like the Milster Bear. She was a true angel, sent here to guide my life, and I am going to miss her with every ounce of my soul. She has touched so many people’s lives, and brought so much joy to them, it is beyond description. She had the biggest heart you could ever imagine, and in the end, it just ran out of ticks.
