Buying Jaco Beach Real Estate

Buying Jaco Beach real estate can be very intimidating primarily due to the buyers’ lack of knowledge in the countries real estate regulations and laws, and as well the language barrier. We spoke with Jeff Fisher from CR Beach Real Estate who, with over 15 years selling real estate, has helped 100’s people acquire their tropical dream property. Based on direct experience, Jeff has found that having peace of mind during real estate transactions comes down to a couple key points:

Work with an Experienced Reputable Real Estate Agency

Securing an experienced Costa Rica real estate agency with a proven track record will help the buyer find a property that suits their needs, budget and lifestyle. A professional, experienced real estate agency will also ensure the buyer avoids common and not-so-common transaction mistakes when purchasing property. For example his/her in-depth knowledge will steer you away from unscrupulous developers, or properties with questionable title or tainted history or even other location and ecological factors unbeknown to outsiders.

Work with Reputable Legal Advisors

This is another critical aspect when buying Costa Rica real estate, secure a reputable, established attorney that has a proven track record and that understands real estate law as well as English, to facilitate the entire purchasing process from deposit to registered title. Those that think they can do it on their own dealing directly with sellers and/or developers will have a much greater chance of running into legal and potential property issues.

While Costa Rica has an excellent public registries system and the laws governing real estate purchase and ownership affords foreigners the same rights and privileges as local Costa Ricans, it cannot be overstated – get proper legal representation!
These two points; inside local intelligence and experience as well as impeccable legal representation, are the keys to a successful and hassle free real estate transaction in any foreign country.
