Exclusive Buyer's Agents works exclusively for you and we do not collect listing commissions. We require a relatively small retainer, which is fully refundable, when you buy because we collect our commission from the seller. The retainer allows us to cover our expenses as well as maintain our focus as we work to satisfy your objective.
NOW is a great time to buy in Costa Rica. As in all markets, there are fluctuations between buyers and sellers markets. Currently, the atmosphere in Costa Rica is that of buyers market. It won't last forever.
Several factors are very important when purchasing property in a foreign country. First, the laws are different. While foreigners in Costa Rica, unlike many countries, have the same absolute right to own property as citizens, the laws and procedures differ substantially from the U.S. and other countries. A buyer needs qualified and reliable expert advice throughout the transaction. Unfortunately, enough unscrupulous operators including dishonest lawyers and sellers exist here to necessitate caution. Often things are not as well regulated in other countries as they are in the good old U.S.A. Thus justice for wrongdoers is not as swift or as decisive, leaving victims out in the cold. The obvious remedy is not to get caught in a bad situation in the first place. This is one reason to engage a Buyer's Broker. In short we will make sure you get exactly what you think you are getting, with GOOD TITLE. We protect your interests.
A second factor to consider when purchasing property here is finding exactly what you want. Often, perhaps most often, the first home, property or business that catches your eye is not the best opportunity for you. All buyers should take the time to look around, analyze the market, and have knowledge of the range of possibilities prior to investing. By having knowledge of factors ranging from what properties are available to relative property values in various areas of the country to geography and climate we can match buyers up with what they are looking for.
Another factor to consider is language. Most foreigners to Costa Rica from outside Latin America do not speak sufficient Spanish to understand what they are buying if not dealing with an English speaking person. Often the most favorable deals can be obtained by dealing directly with the seller who, if Costa Rican, most likely speaks limited English at best. We deal directly with the seller on your behalf, with your consent, and share all information with you.
After an investor locates a desirable home, property or business the next aspect is negotiation of price. Of course language is a prime factor here but it is not the only consideration. We as a third party are in a naturally better position to negotiate on your behalf. Having knowledge of the local market also helps us help you. We not only can advise you not to overpay; we will negotiate the best price for you or advise you to move on to the next possibility.
In summary, as an Exclusive Buyers Agent we serve only our client's interests as buyer's brokers do everywhere. We also serve an extra function in Costa Rica by utilizing our extensive knowledge of Costa Rica for our client's benefit and protection. ALL AT NO COST TO OUR BUYERS.
