If you've been
thinking about buying a property in Costa Rica,
then congratulations, because you've found the perfect partner to help
you through the process. I've been working or investing in real estate
here for almost five years, and have personally purchased nine
in addition to working with hundreds of clients from all over the
world. As an owner and agent for Tropisphere Real Estate, I assure you
that we have the most listings of any real estate company in the area,
and I will work very hard not only to find your dream property in the
Montezuma area, but to help you through all the steps of buying and
then enjoying your purchase. For more info about Costa Rica, see Costaricajourneys.com
First, let's make sure that
you understand what you're buying and why investing in this part of
Costa Rica is a great idea. Click here: investing in Costa Rica
to read my views on this. Despite the financial crisis in the U.S. and
worldwide, the prices in Montezuma have remained stable, and there's
still a lot of interest. Find out why.
finding your property. There is no MLS system for Costa
Rica real estate, so each company must find their own
listings. We have the most listings of any company in Montezuma, as
well as hundreds of listings in the neighboring areas of Santa Teresa,
Malpais, Playa Hermosa,
Tambor, Manzanillo, and Cabuya. After I learn more about you, I might
recommend one of these areas instead, depending on what I think will
make you happiest. Montezuma is a very special place, so click here: Montezuma

seems like the place for you. I work in all these areas, so I'll be
able to help you no matter where you end up choosing. Check Tropisphere.com

Third, going through the
buying process. In most cases, foreigners have the same property rights
as Costa Ricans, and unlike a
place like Mexico, you can buy titled land which is in your name. You
can even get title insurance through Stewart Title if you like. There
are many poor lawyers in Costa Rica, but we will recommend a few great
ones who speak English and will make sure everything goes smoothly for
you. Generally, the buying process is easier in Costa Rica than in the
U.S., Canada, or Europe, but there are many pitfalls. I have written
an article here: Costa Rica Real Estate Investing Advice
that describes many of the common problems to watch out for, many of
which your lawyer may not find.
Fourth, enjoying your
purchase. We can recommend excellent builders and architects. Then,
when you are ready to move or rent your place out, we will help you
with rentals, property management, or moving to Costa
Rica permanently. I'm especially knowledgable about Costa Rica green building,

Montezuma Eco Village
Dreams - 5-6 Ha lots
Lots from $4.50/m2 up
Beautiful new listing, just a short drive
to the beach in Cabuya. The property has been subdivided into ten
mini-farms from 5-6 Hectares.
From half of the farm, there are ocean views, and from most of the
rest, gorgeous mountain views. There are huge old trees, a spring, and
a river with water flowing throughout the year.
||Eco Vista Paradise - 13.2 Ha
Amazing property with two waterfalls and stellar ocean views. Great for
investment as the property can be made into a dozen or so ocean view
lots, plus more down below.
|| Super Views -
One of the best properties in Montezuma is now for sale. This property
stretches horizontally along the cliff, with over 160 meters of
panoramic ocean views. This borders a public road, and is also within
walking distance of beautiful Playa Los Cedros and its epic surf spot.
|| Ocean front hotel lot with
concession - 7421m2
Wow, this is a phenomenal fire-sale bargain! Ocean-front property with
a new concession for 20 years. This is located only 2 km south of
Montezuma, on Playa Las Manchas, one of the most beautiful beaches in
the area, and rated one of the ten cleanest beaches in Costa Rica. The
property is very flat with some giant Pochote and Mango trees. Perfect
for anyone wanting to do a business in the Montezuma area. I think this
is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Finca - 2.5 Ha
This is easily one of the best properties for sale on the peninsula. It
has three hills on it, two of which have ocean views. It borders a
river with abeautiful and private
waterfall and swimming hole very near it. It also has one
of the most massive trees on the peninsula, with at least six different
species of orchids living on its ancient branches! This is ideal for a
bed and breakfast or cabina business, or could be split up into three
beautiful lots and resold individually. Opportunities like this don't
come around often.
|| The Rainbow
House - 4000m2
Located on a hilltop in Montezuma, this property features a unique
combination of panoramic ocean & mountain views, a very
charming house with 130 m2 (1300sqft) of living area, a second building
platform and buildable hillside (both with ocean views) only five min
from Montezuma town and its beaches. It's also located very close to
the best school in the peninsula - Escuela Futuro Verde. It has a huge
potential also for a cabina or rental business and is definitely one of
the best deals in the entire Montezuma area. Titled land.
Cucurucho B14 - 8947 m2
Delicias lot with a small steep "cucurucho" (hill). It has several
large trees, including a massive pochote, and some ocean views. Nice
breezes, etc. This is a good area to build a house at what is still an
affordable price, yet just a few minutes to Montezuma and the beach.
It's amazing that this one hasn't sold yet since everyone who sees it
loves it. Titled.
