Costa Rica Real Estate $150K & Under

Click here to see all of our real estate listings, or click on an individual listing below.

Though we recommend you rent, rent, rent when you move to Costa Rica, we realize that some folks will still choose to buy, either early on or after they’ve been here for a while.

Though we are not realtors, we recommend purchasing properties under $150,000 because they are both easier to buy and easier to sell.

At, we often run across real estate opportunities that fall within our “Retire for Less Philosophy” — in other words, properties that offer more value for less. So, we will bring you homes for sale that are $150,000 or less, and lots that would allow a modest house to be built on it for about the same price. Of course, upgrades will always cost more and are at the buyer’s discretion.

The homes we feature below are just a sample of the properties the realtors we work with have, both above and below $150,000.

The properties we show you will be at elevations where neither heat nor air-conditioning are needed — part of our “retire for less philosophy” — so most likely no beach properties. We’ve started with a few properties but there will be more to come!

We will feature properties regardless of the realtor or builder involved.  Our disclaimer is that we cannot personally vouch for the individual properties; we are merely passing on what we see as good values under $150,000. If you are interested in more information about any of the properties, you can contact the realtor, owner, or developer directly by filling out the contact form below each property listing.
