The Costa Rica central Pacific is the perfect place for your luxury vacation home investment
Like many, you probably dream of life in a balmy tropical paradise where you can enjoy the creature comforts of a luxury vacation home that looks out over the ocean. Costa Rica is brimming with choice properties to fulfill that dream, particularly on its increasingly popular west coast.
Foreign property owners in Costa Rica have the same rights as their Tico counterparts and many North Americans have made their move down south. However, your family ties and business relationships can make competing claims on your time and money, making it difficult to balance your dreams and responsibilities. In those cases, a sometimes-vacant second home may seem a drain on your resources, as well as an invitation for troublesome maintenance issues.
If you want to buy a home in Costa Rica but can’t justify the expense of absentee ownership, consider turning the property into an investment in the very lucrative vacation home rental business. With the right property management and marketing, your dream house can pay the mortgage and provide you with the place to get away from it all at your convenience. The important points to remember are that you need expert management and marketing, no easy task for do-it-yourselfers.
While Costa Rica’s tropical climate is attractive, it can wreak havoc. Buildings and their systems require upkeep and the property needs landscape maintenance; can you perform those tasks? If you plan to manage the rental business yourself, are you willing to handle the enquiries, bookings, cancellations and complaints? If you plan to be an absentee owner, you will need a property manager to handle on-site details such as check-in, cleaning and repairs.
Visitors to Costa Rica come in search of its fabled Pura Vida—a sense of well-being and prosperity in life. Los Sueños Resort and Marina caters to those expectations, making one of its master-planned properties a great investment. Near the black sand beaches of Herradura, Los Sueños offers fine dining, shopping and leisure activities for the family or a romantic retreat—everything you could ask for in an investment property. With impeccable standards to maintain, HRG Properties and Rentals offer peace of mind to ensure your investment pays off—quickly.
Investing for your future not only includes planning your financial resources, but also achieving the quality of life you have planned for. A vacation rental investment is a great way to achieve both goals.
