If you’re looking to sell your Costa Rica vacation rental property…
Enhance your property’s value by accentuating features of privacy and serenity
Vacationers come to Costa Rica seeking tranquility and tropical paradise, which means that privacy and natural surroundings go a long way! An easy improvement that any seller can do is to create clear boundary demarcation. This can enhance perceived value as well as increase privacy.
Consider landscaping, bamboo and/or other natural fencing to demarcate your property, and/or shades for your patio or terrace privacy.
Capitalize on potential views or outdoor living spaces
Sometimes potential views are obstructed by overgrown trees, fencing styles, or the location of patio furniture. Take advantage of all of your property’s view potential in order to highlight the destination’s natural beauty.
In addition, a huge draw to Costa Rica’s lifestyle is the potential for outdoor living due to the idyllic climate. Even if your property doesn’t have a view, enhancing the outdoor living spaces is valuable. Some property highlights could be covered patios, sliding glass doors, outdoor features and even hammocks. These amenities invite the buyer to experience the “Pura Vida” lifestyle that vacationers are looking for!
Stage your home for showings!
First impressions are everything, and a staged home allows a buyer to see the full potential of the property. Staged homes sell up to 20% more than non-staged homes. Make sure to clean windows, freshen up paint, and lighten and brighten wherever possible. Each presentation detail will set the tone for a relaxing vacationer’s haven!
If you’re able to list your home with furnishings, you can even display some furniture or decorations as available for sale by offer.
