Costa Rica Home InspectionsCosta Rica home inspections are important for homes like this

Yes, Costa Rica home inspections are available.  Moreover, we always recommend for our buyers to have a professional inspection done during the due diligence period, to see if there are any issues that need to be addressed. Many homes are older, and it is obvious to the buyer that some renovation or TLC is needed. This is usually reflected in the asking price, and also taken into consideration by the buyer and his agent when they write the offer. But if there is something more serious, it will be found with a good inspection. Then the buyer usually goes back to the seller and his agent and either requests it to be repaired, or gets a credit at closing in the form of a price reduction. Then they can repair the issues themselves after closing.

There are two fantastic Costa Rica home inspections professionals that we use on a regular basis. They give full detailed, North American inspections with photos and comments. The price is anywhere from $300 to $1000 depending on the size of the house or condo. Make sure to get a quote for the inspection before giving the OK. Both are also general contractors and they can give you a fair estimate to repair any issues that might come up. Then the buyer and his agent can decide the best way to proceed.
