Investing in Rental Properties in Costa Rica

Everyday we receive inquiries from clients looking to rent homes in Atenas be it for long term or vacation rentals.  Over the past two years our demand for quality rental properties has increased 10 fold, creating a shortage of inventory in our small town. 

 

A few years back if you were looking for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, pool home in the $1200- $1500 price range, we could have shown you 6-8 quality options.  If you came into our office today, we could show you 1or 2 properties, at best.  Why you may ask?  The popularity of Atenas has continued to increase not only with expats from around the globe, but with locals as well.  Many expats continue to make Costa Rica home, but with the world wide economic difficulties, many have been forced to rent instead of purchasing their dream property.  As for locals, the opening of the San Jose/Caldera Highway just over two years ago, has allowed professionals who lived in the big city of San Jose to have a different, stress free life by living in a small town, surrounded by  peace and tranquility, commuting to San Jose in less than a half hour. 

 

Our recent article INVESTING IN RENTAL PROPERTIES IN ATENAS, COSTA RICA was well received and has generated an abundance of interest with clients asking for more.  To that end we wanted to take the time to give you, our valued clients a few more investment options with what is currently on the market.  Below are 4 properties that have recently been featured on We Love Costa Rica with their potential ROI’s.  These properties are active listings, giving you data for using the property as a long term or vacation rental.  Typically speaking, if you are using your investment as a long term rental property you can expect an annual return of 5% to 7%.  Vacation rental properties yield a slightly higher annual return at 8% to 12%.  Last October, clients or ours, Steve and Dianne from Texas, purchased a retirement home that they could use as a vacation rental while waiting to make the move to Costa Rica full time. They have been so impressed with the success of their vacation rental home that they have just closed on a second property that they will use as a long term rental.
