5 Reasons why the Costa Ballena Luxury Home Market is Alive

5 Reasons why the Costa Ballena Luxury Home Market is AliveLearn all about the 5 Reasons why the Costa Ballena Luxury Home Market is Alive before you purchase a luxury home. Summer “high-season” just came to an end and that was the busiest I have ever been since I sell real estate in the Costa Rican South Pacific.

People came from all over: Canada, London, United States, etc. Do you want to know what the majority was looking for? A Costa Ballena luxury home, see what’s happening on our inventory.

Have you paid attention to the Costa Ballena Luxury Home Market over the last year? Perhaps you have picked up a Luxury Real Estate magazine and noticed how thick it is?

The Costa Ballena luxury home market is now ready to break out. Below are the five reasons why:

 1. The flow of funds is here

We witnessed a high volume of “smart” money entering the area this past year. This deployment of capital to purchase real estate, will change the Costa Ballena in an elegant way. I am not simply saying that buyers are arriving, moreover, that funds are discovering this area for future investment. Some of the best properties are now being acquired and positioning for the next wave is now in motion.

Currently, there are over a dozen luxury homes under construction and many exciting developments coming soon. Next year we will witness exciting projects coming out of the ground and ready for sales.

In the last year, I have entertained seven architectural firms with intentions to enter our market. We have not seen this kind of activity since 2007. There is a new trend in architectural design as well, but I will save that for another article.

5. Conde Nast featured a Costa Ballena luxury home

Costa Ballena was featured in Conde Nast last year and consumers are taking notice – I save this one for last, as it is most prominent. Only four years ago the road connecting us to Manuel Antonio was paved and now we have luxury hotels attentively watching this market. Add this to travel magazines promoting the areas natural beauty, which is attracting tourists and buyers at a rapid rate. People are recognizing our coastline as perhaps the most spectacular in all of Costa Rica. Many consider this the “Big Sur” coast reminiscent of California – at a fraction of the cost.
