When I was growing up, the world seemed so large. As a child lying in the bed of my fathers pickup truck, watching the clouds drift by, I would often day dream about distant lands and places like London, Hong Kong and Paris. How would it be to visit and live in such exotic destinations?
The purchase of my first home in Costa Rica, a life long dream, almost ended as quickly as it began, as a nightmare not a dream. I had been referred to and then hired one of the best attorneys in Costa Rica. He had years of experience, was from a well known family and had an impeccable reputation.
When investing in Costa Rica’s real estate market, one can profit in virtually all areas of this vibrant market, but it is always better to create a value added strategy than to rely solely on appreciation to grow your capital. Building a quality spec home on a desirable, premium building lot is great, secure way to begin investing in Costa Rica with a value added strategy.
