We remember when we bought our first piece of land in Costa Rica, we were excited of course but also a bit scared. We did our home work but still everything was very confusing just because of the lack of guidance.
It is not that complicated but there are few rules you must follow in real estate business. One of the most important is to know the local stories.
The next rule is to do a survey study with a good licensed surveyor. Don’t worry we have a very good one !
The third rule is to do a title study, usually done by the lawyer.
And the fourth rule is to sign an option of sale, with an agreed price and a deposit in an escrow account. This secures the sale and gives you time for the study and to move your funds.
