The procedure for buying real estate in Costa Rica

posted in: Costa Rica News 0

Buying real estate in Costa Rica is quite simple. You just need to present an identity document and the contract will be concluded. Realtor services are 5% and are paid by the selling party.

There are no other benefits for the purchase of housing between foreign citizens and the local population. In addition, the transaction is completed quickly, within one day, and no one builds additional obstacles. Real estate can be purchased either by an organization with any administrative and legal form or by a private individual.

The value of the real estate, which is indicated in the municipal books and registers, is far from the actual value since it is a legal or fiscal price. In fact, real estate is sold at a market price that is ten times higher than the fiscal one. However, there is also a pleasant moment in this – you will have to pay annual taxes on real estate precisely at the legal cost, which will significantly reduce the fixed costs of maintaining and owning the object.

There are no special restrictions and prohibitions for foreigners to buy real estate in Costa Rica.

The only exceptions are some areas:

  • The first 200 m of the sea coast are not for sale, since they belong to the state and are intended for public use;
  • Any construction is prohibited on the first 50 m from the sea beaches, and they cannot be owned by private owners;
  • The next 150 m can only be rented.

Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
