Should I buy or rent a home in San Jose?

Answer this Question

If you have not spent a lot of time in San Jose, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in San Jose can be a great investment as the city is expected to have an economic boom in the coming years. However, renting might be preferable for someone who isn't sure how long they will be in San Jose or who is looking to save up for a longer-term purchase. Renting can give you more flexibility to relocate if needed and to explore various areas of the city before committing to buying," said a member in San Jose, Costa Rica, Costa Rica.

"I rent because I do not want to be tied down to a piece of property. Also property is expensive. My rental agreement was easy to understand, only about 4 pages (2 of them inventory of furnishings). I negotiated the terms from 12 months to 6 and the rent amount. It was not difficult at all," remarked another expat who made the move to San Jose, Costa Rica.
