Costa Rica property market. Will it embrace a Costa Rica MLS system?

Well this appears to be the hopes and dreams of one man. Mitch Chandler has created the first Costa RIca MLS the country has ever seen. But will it be accepted by the thousands of brokers country-wide?

April 26, 2010 - PRLog -- Last week, we attended a training course for what was billed as the first Costa Rica MLS. Skeptical at first, however after we heard the roadmap for this revolutionary system we climbed on board.

It's important to note that Costa Rica has never had any kind of MLS (multiple listing service) despite what many sites would have you believe. Nor has there been any kind of regulating body to govern how the industry was run. This obviously made way for what many called, "the wild west years" in the Costa Rica real estate ( industry.

What this company hopes to do is, not only bring some sort of organisation to the business but also to provide a tool that unites and bonds the realtors as a group. Straight across the board, from lawyers, engineers, architects, brokers, agents and ultimately the buyer, all will benefit from a proper Costa Rica MLS system.

Costa Rica Property Site ( is proud to say that we are now certified members of the Costa Rica MLS system and will be incorporating the system in to our site very soon. This will open up many more options for buyers looking to invest in Costa Rica property.

Now you will be able to search country-wide instead of just locally to the agency for which you are working with.

Potential buyers looking to invest in Costa Rica property will have to consider that if they do not work with a certified Costa Rica MLS broker, they will be severely limiting themselves in regards to the variety of property along with how valid the information is they are receiving. All information contained within the Costa Rica MLS system has been verified and if anything is not up to date or accurate, penalties can be levied against the listing broker. This ensures accurate information within the Costa Rica MLS system.

So next time you are considering purchasing Costa Rica property, we hope that you may consider Costa Rica Property Site ( and if not, please be sure you only deal with TierraMax (official name) authorized brokers or agents to ensure you're being presented with the most options available in order to make your educated buying decision. Pura Vida!
