A Property Deal in Costa Rica For $475 a Month

I don’t often see a $19,000 lot in a gated community with lake and jungle views.

I’ve seen nowhere like this: Pastureland mixed with jungle that’s a rich verdant green rolls down to dark and light blue water. Today it’s mirror flat. Most days the west side of the lake is where you find the windsurfers and sailboats. They buzz around the lake under the watchful eye of a ridge of giant wind mills.

That $19,000 could be financed over three years…interest-free. That means you could lock down this lot with $1,900 down and $475 per month for three years.

(This deal…these prices and terms…will be publicly announced at a very special event in Toronto this June 9-11.)

With pricing like this you won’t have to choose between that boat and your dream vacation home. You can have both. Directly in front is the yacht club. This is part of a neighboring community, but as an owner of this $19,000 lot you can dock your boat for free. Or, you can rent a boat, or take guided lake, fishing and volcano tours.

When you do take a boat on the lake you’ll find you have it to yourself. It’s stunning. Yet, it’s only been discovered (and kept secret) by a small group of expats and second home owners.

The Lake Arenal region in Costa Rica is a place for hiking, horseback-riding, bird-watching, swimming, fishing (mainly for rainbow bass) and boating. With temperatures in the high seventies almost year-round the weather is perfect for an active lifestyle.

For now this area is a hidden gem. I doubt it will stay this way for long. As soon as the world catches on, these values will be a thing of the past. When you join me in Toronto for the International Real Estate Investment Forum 2011, you’ll learn more about these lots with $1,900 down and $475 per month.
