Buy a Home in Costa Rica

Many dream of buying a home in Costa Rica. Purchasing a home in another country is an exciting quest, but the journey is loaded with risks. Many attempt a purchase, only to encounter problems along the way…with the agent, the seller, the attorney or the property itself. And some even run into fraud, assuming that property buying is as safe as it is back home.

About half of MyPlace Members who move to Costa Rica decide to purchase instead of rent. Why? Right now, Costa Rica is hot…many people want to move, and many people want to buy. As a result, we’re seeing prices go up. So, many people want to buy when they first move to avoid paying higher prices in the future. Other Members who move buy right away because long-term rentals are in short supply. And, some Members choose to buy at the time of the move for other reasons: they don’t want to move twice. They want the peace and security of owning the property they live in.

Now, there is a safer, easier way. MyPlace takes the guess-work out of buying property in Costa Rica. MyPlace has created a Preferred Provider network of the best realtors, attorneys, builders and other providers in Costa Rica – vetted, screened, proven, reliable, trustworthy. MyPlace affords its members these benefits:
