Video Interview with Scott Oliver, Noted Author and Owner of WeLoveCostaRica.comJanuary 31, 2007
Scott Oliver is an UK expat living and consulting in Costa Rica. He is not only a noted author and real estate consultant but also the owner of a very popular website about Costa Rica (http://welovecostarica.com). We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had the opportunity to do a real estate video interview with Scott in San Jose. This interview will likely be really helpful for the people who want advice to invest in real estate in Costa Rica. Scott has written a book ‘How to Buy Costa Rica Real Estate Without Losing Your Camisa’ where you can find advice of all kinds about Costa Rica. Between the book and the website, you can find answers for likely any questions that you may have about purchasing properties in Costa Rica. Scott also has a wealth of tips about how to protect yourself when you invest in real estate in Costa Rica and when choosing a real estate agent. In this interview he talked a bit of his website, his book and why he likes to live in Costa Rica.
Scott’s background is in international investment and he has been living in Costa Rica for the last 7 years advising people to invest in real estate. He clearly is more than willing to share his experiences in investing and about Costa Rica in general. The fact that he is a straight shooter only adds to his reputation as an excellent advisor in these matters. I was reading a bit of his book and I learn valuable information that is not generally available in the internet. It appears to be especially useful for foreign people who don’t get all the information that might only be in Spanish. I found excellent advice about what to do when when you want to buy, rent of finance real estate in Costa Rica and how to look for the best offers of real estate. The book also gives you advice about the legal and the financing side of the real estate investment in this country.
What Scott loves about Costa Rica is the weather, the diversity of the nature and its people. However, he said that the rules in North America are different than Costa Rican regarding mainly the law and language. So he recommends, when you try to acquire property in Costa Rica, to work with experienced professionals that work on your behalf. And regarding investing in real estate in Costa Rica, he thinks is an excellent time and place to invest.
