All GoDutch real estate agents are well trained and WILL do due diligence, unlike most real estate offices in Costa Rica do, before we even list a home, land or condo in Costa Rica, to make sure you will be buying property in Costa Rica with a clear title. We make sure we get to know the Costa Rica property as well as we can, so we can give you, the buyer, all the necessary expertise.

Also, we always recommend the use of a home inspector before you purchase. We prefer you know about the problems a property might have so you’ll have an easy move into your new home, condo or villa. Properties in Costa Rica are sold “as is” so a home inspection will give you a list of what needs to be fixed, so you can get that done before moving into your townhome or condo in Costa Rica. A Godutch realtor will protect YOUR interests, so when you move to Costa Rica and want to live the Ultimate Costa Rica real estate experience, make sure you contact us. All GoDutch real estate agents have good ethics and rules to live by even though real estate licensing in Costa Rica is not mandatory but eventually the Costa Rica MLS will straighten that out as they will start soon the Continued Education for Realtors. It is easy to find out who we are, just check the testimonials on our website and see what our clients have to say about us.
