THE Top Reasons why these are the Top Reasons to Buy in Costa Ballena, NOW

We Have Been Discovered

Confused?  I was too when I was trying to find a title to this article.  The position I am now taking is so clear that it would benefit you by getting inside these ideas as well.

I am courting, let’s say recruiting, someone to come work with us.  I had the pleasure of spending a day with him last week, showing him a variety of properties and developments.  He is a seasoned broker from somewhere else – a top producer.  He got it. So do I.  It only took a day.

Now is the time, to be investing in Costa Ballena.  Let me repeat.  Now is the time to buy.  Why?  We’ve been discovered!

  1. Smart money is here and growing
  2. Abundant supply
  3. Demand is growing
  4. The market is getting less, bad

In the last four months, Costa Ballena (Dominical, Uvita, Ojochal) has been featured on media outlets such as CNN, Marketwatch, Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times.  Dominical beach was listed as a top surf break.  More and more chatter about our high quality infrastructure is hitting the news.  As I type they are adding four more new inches of pavement on our main highway (a stretch of 40+ miles).

Of course I cannot disclose the developments that are being planned, however, trust me.  They are exciting.  The great news is that a hefty amount of capital is here and about to create some game-changing product and it is happening now.

So while supply is still abundant, now is the time to come and get you some, before the good stuff is absorbed.  I am having more conversations with my customer base saying, “that sold….”.  They are starting to kick themselves for not pulling the trigger sooner.  We have not seen that happen in over seven years (actually nine).

Our lead activity (yes we are in the lead generating business) is growing at impressive rates.  Demand is up. Interestingly, May is normally an “off” month.  Not this year.  We were slammed.  Does that tell you something?

We are forecasting and projecting for our business, which has not been done since 2007.  Times have changed and buyers are back.  We have been discovered.

The market is also getting less, bad.  Sellers are holding their ground more and more due to demand.  It’s not that they are bullish, but that the market is acting more reasonable now.  It is no longer 2009-2012 when nothing was happening. Back then there was no market.  Today, it is (much) less, bad, which is the best time to get in, before it takes off and prices rise.

This might happen in the blink of an eye.  One by one, customers are seeing the pace and buying.  The tire-kicking phase of this recovery is ending as we enter this new buying phase.

I get it.  My new recruit gets it.  It is clear to see what is happening before our eyes.  “I Told You” will soon become a common phrase.  It is refreshing to call a prospect and say, “The one you wanted sold this week.”

Pack your bags.  Jump aboard.  The train is leaving the station.
