Options for buying a house listed as a corporation

Hi, I am new to this forum. I am trying to get information on how to purchase property in CR. I have found a property I am extremely interested in--A small little home listed for $43k. I have contacted the agent, it is still available, and I would like to travel down there next week to see it and most likely close the deal. The issue is financing. Believe me, I know 43k is not a lot of money. The issue is having to come up with the full amount to buy it outright. Being a dumb american I had assumed the real estate there would work as it does here--10-20% downpayment and finance the rest. Having to come out of pocket with 43k on short notice is a different story. Do I have any other options? The house is listed as a corporation. If I can't find another way to do this I'm going to have to pass it up. I really don't want to.

While this could be 'real steal', do you know there area? Have you been to Costa Rica before? Really consider renting to see if you like it first! Many chose a house without any idea of the climate in the immediate area, and you may be in for a shock if you think that the weather is always hot and sunny here. Lots of very varied conditions.

Please, don't rush into something, as it is very easy to buy here....and extremely difficult to sell if you decide this particular part of Costa Rica is not for you.

I've been to most every part of CR and this is definately where I'd like to buy. The seller wanted a cash buyer though, so we had to pass on the house.
