When considering property in Costa Rica, or any country for that matter, ensure that you’re dealing with a clean property title and that essential utilities, like water and electricity, are readily available.

At Guanavista, we’ve got you covered on these fronts. We have had water and electricity on the property for over 20 years, and  Sfera legal is our suggested partner to make sure all land and property titles are legitimate and due diligence is being handled with a fine tooth comb prior to your closing.

2. Corporation or Personal Purchase?

Especially as a second home, or second home with rental income.
