But don’t just take my word for it! If you’ve done your research you’ll already know that several highly esteemed international property investment experts have plucked this beautiful region of Costa Rica out of relative obscurity and firmly positioned it on the list of the best locations to acquire real estate in the world.
Ronan McMahon, a foreign real estate investment professional publishes his research on emerging real estate investment locations in International Living online. In a recent article titled the, “McMahon Global Real Estate Index,” McMahon explains,
“Costa Rica has done a great job selling itself. That’s why, in places, a half-acre lot could set you back up to $600,000. Costa Rica’s Southern Zone stayed off the radar, though. And it’s nicer than up north, the area most folks know. The entry price for a lot at the gold-standard project in this area is a modest $40,000. It’s very good value for money. Because of the new road, I expect prices will rise. And that makes the appreciation potential strong.”
Taking into account that the area is undergoing significant infrastructural improvements, now has never been a better time to find out about Costa Rica real estate listings in the South Pacific. In McMahon’s Global Real Estate Index, the Southern Zone was given 100 for ease of buying, a clear indication that foreign property investment in Costa Rica can be a straightforward procedure, providing you hire a qualified regional realtor.
