For sure you can live like a rock star in Costa Rica on $4,000 per month. Most expats, though, report that they are living quite happily and without sacrifices on a monthly budget of $1,500 to $2,500. That’s for two people living in a mid-range, two-bedroom home, and includes rent, utilities, transportation and Internet. If you avoid tourist in places and restaurants, the Low cost of living in Costa Rica is a positive fact. You’ll save, too, on the little things that matter the most, but can add up. Like: • Ticket to see a movie in a modern theater — $5 • Tickets to see a cultural event at the National Theater start at $2 • Ticket to see a National Soccer Team Match in the brand-new stadium — $20 • Fresh Red Snapper — approximately $2.50 per pound • A pound of beans — $0.90 per pound • A pound of rice — $0.50 per pound • Four avocadoes — $2 • Pineapples — $1 each • A bottle of Imperial beer — $1.25 • A pack of local cigarettes — $2.20 • Bus ride from downtown San Jose to Escazu — $0.55 • Bus ride from San Jose to Jaco Beach (60 miles) — $4.11 But it’s not just the potential cost savings that you should consider… it’s the overall improvement in your quality of life. Better weather. Beautiful scenery. Healthcare that’s not only high quality, but affordable. Less stress. And one more thing…
Do you have your own Dream Home? Send us a picture and in case you do not have the construction plans no problem we will make them. First of all, we just need the square meters or square feet the House has and the construction type to make you an offer. While this is the first offer so you know approximately where we are, we will work together all de details to get finally the end amount.
I am very honest with you. The smaller houses we offer are in an upper price range due to the fact that we are trying to find the balance doing such an Eco Project and combine all possible efforts protecting Nature. So considering you get a big lot of 5.000 square meters (1.24 acre +) the land price affects the end price a little. At the same time, you get 100% Privacy. This is what we love to protect in this Real Estate Eco Project in Costa Rica.
There is also another option you might have a look at. Did you ever consider for instance Investing with Friends? This gives you the great option to build 2 Houses in one lot so you can charge the land costs. In addition, you can buy also one Villa together with one, two or three friends. In other words, imagine owning the amazing Villa Bellevue Marbella with 3 other friends for only US$ 155.000.
As a result of the very good Relation Ship we have with our Customers, you are more than welcome to talk to them. So you get very personal information on what kind of top level services you can expect in this Real Estate in Costa Rica.
However while in Latin America and different other places in the world it is very common to pay 20-30% more. Yes, talk to your friends and you will get this confirmed. So talk to our Customers and they will tell you the opposite. When it comes buying Real Estate in Costa Rica or where else during the construction process prices for this and that went up. We want to give you the peace of mind and the amount we agreed in the contract is the amount you will pay.
Finally, I have been asked this from our Swiss Clients who are building right now. As a result of such a very unhappily case we will learn it in a hard way. Yes, in such a case we will pay it from our margin and for sure not you from your pocket. This is how we do business in this Eco Real Estate Project in Costa Rica. Therefore combined with the low cost of living in Costa Rica you have a piece in mind which is the priority.
