16 Reasons why International Living promotes Costa Rica so much

16 Reasons why International Living promotes Costa Rica so muchInternational Living® and their commercial division Pathfinder recently approved one of our affiliate partners, as their representative for the Central Valley of Costa Rica.

The next International Living® convention will be in Cancun, Mexico 21-25th February 2012 and we needed to decide on a good sample of properties for sale to promote there.

We are a Costa Rica MLS that covers the whole country, and not a free tour company.  International Living gave us the choice to only cover the Central Valley. So we organized a large bus, filled it with International Living convention participants.

About half the 1,700 properties we have for sale on our Costa Rica real estate website are located in the Central Valley. So we decided on 40 properties in different price ranges. These included building lots as well as homes for sale and a couple of commercial properties. This gave us a good choice to present to the International Living clients who registered for the convention.

Of course, all these properties would have to be priced very well and be attractive and well maintained. Why even bother to travel to the convention in Cancun with an inventory of overpriced properties? This is when I realized that there are still quite a few owners of Costa Rica real estate are in no hurry to sell.

  2. Very low property taxes compared to most other countries
  3. No heating nor A/C needed anywhere within the Central Valley

Sounds great?

The above shows that really most people don’t want to sell their property in Costa Rica and go back to their home country, why would they? Now you all know the reason why prices are not coming down in Costa Rica, why motivated sellers are scarce and why so many people move here. So if you want to live in Costa Rica and enjoy all these advantages that Costa Rica has to offer, make sure you contact one of our affiliate agents soon.
