  1. CR Property Prices

    Prices on the Caribbean side are actually going up.
  2. Contact member Kahuna, he runs http://www.ecopreservationsociety.org
  3. "i have not applied for a loan w/anyone yet in c r " Well I suggest that you do before you try to tell others what it takes to get a loan in Costa Rica.
  4. CR Property Prices

    One of my partners is a constructor and another friend a lawyer in Santa Teresa. Will be more than happy to give you their contact info. I'm not familiar with Carmona (yet), but can see what I find out.
  5. CR Property Prices

    I do believe that investing in real estate is a smart move down here. Right now I would suggest the Caribbean side. The Nicoya Peninsula has been bought by people with money to build. There are few Tico deals left. Right now it's time to build on the pacific and time to buy on the Caribbean. Mike
  6. Buying land or property

    Thanks, Kevin. I know a few realtors all over Costa Rica who are honest. The most important thing is that the buyer has a good attorney who works for him/her and not the seller. I know horror stories like some of you would not believe. I have a great attorney friend who has his office on the Nicoya Peninsula, and his dad's office is in the San Jose area. So if anybody ever needs an attorney for a transaction or to fix an issue, I'll be more than happy to give you the information.
  7. I have been shopping around and found a mortgage company which I have heard nothing but good about, and they have sent me a form for anyone to fill out who wants a mortgage. You guys can go ahead and download it at http://www.firetown.com/Loan and email it to mike@firetown.com Hope to be able to connect the dots here and will let you guys know more once I have more information on what qualifies and what disqualifies an applicant. Mike
  8. I will pass those questions on to a mortgage company.
  9. I have asked a few people and will hopefully be able to get you guys some info by tonight. Mike
  10. all size loans. Will build a database for out construction site and if you know people who give small and large loans for construction projects, please post them in this thread or message me in private. thanks
  11. Justin, do your research and fill a demand. There are many ways, but if you don't take your time choosing what to do and do what has been done a million times, it can be frustrating competing with those who have been in the business a lot longer and know what works and what doesn't. Mike
  12. I have seen people buy land for $120.00 a square meter while the lot right next to it sold for $20 a square meter. It really does also depend on how well connected you are in the community. Good deals come and you never know when.
  13. From what I have seen, the trends shift by area. Some of the locations where land sold like hotcakes a couple of years ago, it's now the people with capital to build who own the land and the construction begins, while other areas are still cheap and people now look into those to start buying it up.
  14. First give us an idea on what area you would like to move to. Busy, quiet? By the beach, inland? Many of us have great connections all over Costa Rica and there are many great places where you can live cheap.
  15. Name Change
