What Do We Really Want in a House?

Mar 05, 2021 — 2Costa Rica Real Estate

One of the most important things that a real estate agent must have is the ability to really pay attention and listen. Oftentimes clients are not sure exactly what they want until they see it.  An experienced real estate agent will pick up on cues and understand what the person wants to communicate, not just what they say.  The pandemic has made evident a lot of things, and one of the things that have stirred the real estate industry is the appreciation for open space. Moreover, another tendency is that many people want to stray from typical condominiums because of strict regulations, lack of privacy, as well as oftentimes, expensive homeowners association fees. When a client asks for green areas and a home outside of a condominium, it is important for their real estate agent to be able to know who their clients are, what their motivation is, and what their true drive may be.  While on the surface, a request for more green space outside of a condominium is just that, they are also describing the lifestyle they envision in Costa Rica.
