While real estate prices have increased rapidly in Costa Rica in the last ten years, there are still few deals to be had. If you are interested in buying the only land, a piece of land can be purchased in the mountain areas of Costa Rica from $1,000 to $5,000 per acre, or if you prefer the ocean, land goes for $10,000 to $30,000 per acre. If you acquire 40-50 acres or more, the prices could decrease by half. The prices in Costa Rica have increased rapidly in the last years, thereby making the real deals in some areas more and more unreachable.
A good alternative for the investors is to look for land parcels ready for development and not a house. Far from the cities, a piece of land can be bought in the mountains and highlands from $1,000 to $5,000 per acre. The lots with ocean views go for $10,000 to $30,000 per acre and the beachfront begin from $50,000 per acre. If the investor chooses to buy in bulk, some 40-50 acre parcels or a bigger plot, the prices could even reduce by half.
As much as homes go, there are still real estates in Costa Rica that are being offered under their market prices. The reasons for this differ but the major reason these properties are being sold for such a low price is that maybe their owners need to sell them faster. The majority of properties that you can find at a cheap price are usually located fairly far away from the main cities of Costa Rica. It is difficult to see properties near the main cities at a cheap price. But it is not impossible to find an unusual property near the city that is being sold for cheaper. Carrying out your research, asking for help from real estate, and looking at listings will pay off for. You might get lucky and find the property of your dream at a good location for a price below market price.
