Costa Rican dream homes come with built-in happiness
It’s not too often you find a country where happiness is a selling feature. But that’s Costa Rica, which is why Costa Rican-based and Canadian-owned Monterra Developers has found success over the last 12 years helping Canadians build their dream homes in the Playa Tambor region.
“Costa Rica is the safest country in Central America, and it’s known as the Switzerland of Central America,” says Amanda Turner, office manager for Monterra’s marketing division, OwnCostarica.com. “It’s a very happy nation (with) high quality of life and very low cost of living.”
These ingredients add up to a recreation and retirement escape like no other.
Monterra’s construction team “will build custom homes ready for people to pick up and move to,” says Turner. “We have about a dozen home designs clients can choose from that can be customized to suit their needs.”
This is a great time to invest in Costa Rican real estate, as values are expected to rise as more tourists and developers discover the country, she says, adding Monterra is able to build homes for $300,000-$500,000 — lot included — in a neighbourhood surrounded by milliondollar homes.
“These are gorgeous four-bedroom, custom-built bungalows, with a swimming pool — all furnished,” says Turner. “And we have finishes like granite counter tops and custom hardwood kitchen cabinets … we walk our clients through the process step by step.”
Buyers also have access to a rental management team that takes the stress out of owning international property, she says.
