The dream of living a better life is alive and well, and no more than here in Costa Rica. Selling the dream is an easy one where hundreds each year take the exciting and huge jump at the possibility of improving their lives.
A vision of a better life has been a part of human history. It has caused people to trek thousands of miles, board ships for months with no guarantees of even getting there. Who does not want to improve their lives, be happier and healthier and live stress-free?
While perusing a better life in what seems (and many of us believe) to be paradise, don’t be so in love with the notion and country that you skimp on the Due Diligence.
Red flags are easy to spot once you know what to look for and one of the key elements that should send your “Spidy-sense” in to overdrive is when a development project is presenting renderings as reality. How do you know they will deliver as promised? What if they go bankrupt before putting in the roads, or electricity? A home, be it a vacation, second, or retirement home is one of the biggest investments most of us will make. It is vital that when making that investment you take steps to insulated yourself from as many risks as possible.

There are beautiful communities along the shores of the Gold Coast of Costa Rica, each is unique in many ways.
In those thriving communities you’ll have a K-12 bilingual school,professional-style clay tennis court, bustling social clubs and clubhouses, sweeping panoramic ocean view over Brasilito and stretching to Playa Flamingo and an array of newly constructed homes varying in price from $50,000 up to and exceeding $4 million. Many properties enjoy an incredible ocean view over the Pacific and it’s white sand beaches.
It is a great location in Costa Rica but if you take just one thing away from this reading, it is that you should always find properties that already have all infrastructure in place.
We have a list of communities and ocean view developments that already have all the lots segregate, titled and with roads, water and electricity already in. It is important to note that this is a safety step we feel strongly about and recommend to everyone, but it is not to say that developments without the infrastructure can’t also be good opportunities. So if you fall in love with a property that does not have its infrastructure in yet, then you must take extra steps to ensure the developer’s solvency and make sure to use an escrow company.
One of the newest communities being developed by the oldest real estate development company Samara Beach, Guanacaste is Vista Samara. The infrastructure for this community with fantastic Pacific ocean view is already in place, and with over a decade of great work, its developer enjoys a AAA rating for security and straightforwardness. They are set to open for public sales in late spring of 2017. Their ocean view properties are 1.25 acres and start as low as $59,000 for mountain views and $69,000 for 1.25 acres of beautiful ocean views properties in Costa Rica.
