Agent Must Have An Office – Don’t work with agents who don’t have an office and work from home. Do not trust agents based on telephonic conversation. If they don’t risk investing on a office, you shouldn’t invest on them.
Opt For Full Time Agents – Many people make the mistake of buying property in Costa Rica through taxi drivers, waiters etc. and suffer later. Opt for a full time real estate agent and never do this mistake of opting for part timers.
Choose Agents Over Franchises – A good franchise somewhere else need not be good in Costa Rica. It is better for you to opt for an agent while investing in Costa Rica real estate than a franchise. While a Franchise in a good place to start you still want to interview the agent.
Check For Referrals – Check for the referrals posted on the agent’s website. Check them out as they will give you a fair idea of the agent’s track record. Ask questions that are relevant to your Costa Rican real estate search to these people.
Work With Someone You Like – If you don’t like the Costa Rica real estate agent don’t work with them. The agent’s work doesn’t end with sale and you will require a lot of after sale services. It is thus important that you work with an agent who offers to assist you with everything.
