Every continent, every country, every culture has its own sets of habits and different ways of doing things. The same accounts for doing business, such as Real Estate.
As Costa Rica is part of the American Continent, its Real Estate customs show more similarities with those in North America, than in overseas countries.
With the current and ongoing influx of Europeans, seeking for a new place to settle or to enjoy the tropical beach life for mid or long term in Costa Rica, it appears appropriate to give a brief overview of the way the Real Estate world operates in the Tamarindo area and Costa Rica in general. Having some knowledge of local Real Estate habits, will certainly improve any buyer’s experience.
