San Jose, Costa Rica -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/17/2013 -- Costa Rica is a thriving and incredibly diverse country near North America that delivers astonishing natural beauty and wildlife together with a peaceful and relaxed way of life that many Americans understandably find very attractive. It is popular among the successful to buy second homes, retirement homes or even to move to Costa Rica to raise a family. For those people, real estate sites like KarenRealEstate.com are invaluable, as they market properties both to Costa Ricans and to international bidders.
The website has now introduced a special section for fire sale properties, those properties whose prices have been slashed in order to achieve a quick sale. The properties available in the fire sale section are from all across Costa Rica and vary in scale from small plots of land to penthouse apartments to huge farms. The unifying feature in this wide range of properties is the prices- all rock bottom.
The site also offers general information on life and style in Costa Rica, including guides as to what to expect from the TV, how to secure a bank account, what taxes to expect, as well as a guide to schooling, casinos, honeymoons and cars. For its efforts in attracting international business, the site has been featured both on Costa Rican TV and in the New York Times.
A spokesperson for Karen Real Estate explained, “The Costa Rica real estate market is thriving, but the prices are still hugely affordable to North Americans, many of whom are entranced by the intense beauty of the country as an idyllic setting in which to retire or raise a family. The Costa Rican economy is also doing very well, ensuring people who want a major lifestyle change can still find work. We aim to make the transition as easy, as well as cheap, as possible for our clients.”
