Many Americans after visiting Costa Rica a few times decide that buying their own property in their favourite area. In recent years this has become easier and easier. Whether its a large villa, a house or even an apartment you will probably find its easier than you think.
When and if you buy a property for sale in Costa Rica you will be using a different system to the US. It is a Spanish based system using a publicly appointed Notary. This is an idependantly hired official whose job it is to check that transactions are carried in a fair manner. He or she will check over all the paper work and monies changing hands and make sure there is no underhandedness going on.
