Costa Rica has a very diverse real estate market, so there’s a Costa Rica property for sale to satisfy everyone’s wildest dreams. From fully furnished homes and condos to bare lots and visions, beautiful properties at the right price are spread out across the entire country. And to anyone who’s looking to invest in a promising project, discover a home away from home, or relocate permanently to a shaded, poolside hammock behind a lovely ocean-view estate, we have one thing to say to you: it’s here, and CostaRicaRealEstate.com can get it for you.
Though building costs are relatively the same throughout the country, land value has significant variation based on location. Northwest Costa Rica is considered the country’s Gold Coast, and the price of a 5000 square meter ocean view lot ranges between $100,000 and $600,000 – (it’s worth mentioning that the small selection of half-million dollar lots are among the most spectacular in the world and worth every penny to those who can afford them). In less developed coastal areas on the Pacific, lots can be up to 75% cheaper than in the Gold Coast.
Building generally costs around $100 per square foot, so even in the Gold Coast, $300,000 can get you an ocean view lot boasting a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. A 4500-7500 square foot Costa Rica property for sale would be priced between $750,000 and $1,500,000. Varying materials, contractors, and countless other factors manipulate price when building.
Many people desire to play a role in customizing their own home from the ground up, but the market is also ripe with fabulous turn-key homes and condos that have been given plenty of affection. Such properties most often come with high quality furniture, appliances, utensils, and décor. The Costa Rica real estate market is on the rise, yet prices will remain low for the time being. It’s certainly feasible to buy perfect house with top-notch appliances and furniture at lower cost than constructing an empty house. There are benefits to either choice, it all depends on the buyer’s needs!
Beachfront Costa Rica property for sale is more expensive than ocean view property, due to the limited selection and high desirability. The ocean serves as a pretty nice backyard, but just be ready to pay the price! In more desired areas of Costa Rica, beach development opportunities are few and far between, since most of the land is accounted for. However, there are beach homes on the market!
