Why Costa Rica? from our perspective

The Simms Team has started helping clients purchase properties in Costa Rica.  Why?

Sales of homes and condos here in Tampa Bay have slowed down, often because the prospective purchaser hasn’t been able to sell their existing home. Purchasers of second homes or vacation properties often don’t need to sell a home – they are often taking money from alternative investments – the stock market or an IRA, for example.  We are already representing buyers wanting a vacation home here on the St Petersburg and Clearwater beaches, so – where are people who live here in Tampa Bay buying their second homes? North Carolina mountains, Colorado/Utah/Montana ski resorts, and Costa Rica!

After meeting some Costa Rica developers at an international conference we attended, Tami and I decided to go to Costa Rica and check out the country and the real estate opportunities there. Last August was our first trip, and we saw enough positives to continue our exploration. We just returned from our third trip in a year, expanding our contacts and knowledge with each trip.

How can we help our clients research and buy property in Costa Rica? Lots of ways – but that’s for a future blog on Costa Rica.
