4 Amenities Luxury Home Buyers Want Most

4 Amenities Luxury Home Buyers Want MostA realtor.com® survey in 2014 found that 17 percent of luxury home buyers say they entered the market because they’re newly retired.

The survey shows that 19 percent of luxury home shoppers say a recent success in their career has prompted their home search.

If you belong to the first group of luxury home buyers, there is a good chance you have found out that Costa Rica is a fantastic option to purchase a luxury vacation home or 2nd home. Especially if you live in a city with direct flights to San Jose or Liberia.

If you belong to the second group, you might be looking for a different location. This is more likely within the Central Valley (you might be the exception of course). In that case, you will be more interested in a luxury retirement home located close to the International Airport in San Jose.

The best part is that our MLS offers you both options and more.

The chef’s kitchen

When you have more time on your hands, you have time to cook. If you love to cook, you need to show off to your friends and invite them to your feast. A focal point for gathering family, friends and food, a chef’s kitchen offers much more than just a stove and a fridge. The best chefs’ kitchens are open kitchens and offer top of the line appliances, great workspaces and of course and nice sitting area for all want to be close to the chef while doing miracles in the kitchen.

The home’s views

Since Costa Rica has 633 miles of Pacific coastline and 132 miles of Caribbean coastline, it is pretty easy to find luxury homes with ocean views or even beach views. The Central Valley is surrounded by mountains. So finding a luxury home with mountain views, valley views or city views is an easy task if you are in the right location.

The home’s square footage

The square footage desired is a very personal opinion. Many retirees want to downsize and the square footage of the home has to be small. Even if the luxury home needs to have a chef’s kitchen and an outstanding view. Others want to have a man’s cave, a home theatre, a music room or even a bowling alley. What is most important is to let us know your exact requirements of how you would like to use up the square footage of the luxury home. Then we’ll do what we can.

The home’s expansive master bedroom

When purchasing a luxury vacation home in Costa Rica, of course, you would like your master bedroom to have all the luxuries of a 5-star hotel, apart from that balcony with a panoramic ocean view. You also would like your guests to be as comfortable as you are.  For luxury home buyers, bedrooms and bathrooms are as important in a luxury vacation home as a chef’s kitchen.

The home’s expansive master bedroom

A retirement home usually has less space set apart for the bedrooms. But the master bedroom, of course, has to be special. If your luxury retirement home is a ranch home, you would want to walk into the garden or directly into your endless pool. And if you’re on a different floor, you would want expansive panoramic views from your master bedroom.
