    Frank: My husband Ron Walker and I met you in April on George’s tour during the evening in San Ramon. We are strongly considering moving to CR about a year from now and really liked the San Ramon area and the community of people we met.

    This house listing caught our eye. Can you give us more information on it? What is the elevation? A description of the microclimate? More pictures, or current pictures? I know this has been on the market for quite some time becasue we first saw a listing many, many months ago. Any reason it hasn’t been sold? Anything else that you can tell us about it, like what is the owner finance deal?

    Following everyone’s advice we planned to come down and rent first. That may be difficult because we have dogs and cats and most rentals say No Pets. So we are now looking at what we might buy if it is just what we want.

    I appreciate anything else you can offer to help us get a bigger picture. Thanks. Looking forward to working with you. Ron & Carol

      Hola, Carol! This property has been SOLD as of a couple of weeks ago. In Costa Rica, the amount of time that a property is on the market is not nearly as relevant as it might be in the United States, Canada, etc… Folks who move here are not only purchasing a property, but often times they are making a decision to move to a foreign country, embrace a different culture, and learn a new language… Sometimes, these types of decisions take time. 😉 On a couple of occasions I’ve had properties listed for over two years and then seemingly “out of the blue” we have multiple offers on it. The real estate market is very interesting here, and so is living this kind of life. I look forward to showing you some available properties in San Ramon when you come back to see us again! PURA VIDA

    Is this property still available. What is the elevation? Are there any HOA fees or is this a gated community? Can we have or raise small animals on the property (for example chickens). Is owner financing available?

    • Frank 10 years ago

      Hola, Edgardo-

      This property has been SOLD… Please continue to check our website regularly for new property listings that might suit you. I look forward to helping you in the future. PURA VIDA
