Best Selling Property in Costa Rica, Hacienda Matapalo, Achieves $43 Million in Sales

The best selling property in Costa Rica, Hacienda Matapalo, recently topped $43 million in sales. Costa Rica real estate is extremely appreciative, and buyers will soon have the opportunity to invest in the highly sought-after Hacienda Matapalo, as phase II residences will soon be made available at pre-construction prices. Hacienda Matapalo began releasing several new villages in its phase I condo and home pre-construction a few months ago, following a successful meeting by the Minister of Tourism.
Location, location, location is the key to a successful real estate launch, and this was the initial driving force to choose the locale of Hacienda Matapalo:

The pristine 665 acres of Hacienda Matapalo have been conserved by coupling a low density formula of small building footprints with 125 acres set aside for a dedicated nature preserve. Monkeys, Blue Morpho butterflies, birds and sloths share the waterfalls, lakes and lush rain forest with their transported neighbors from North America.
Horseback tours of the property have driven sales in the pre-construction stage, and the equestrian center will have a full stable of horses available to travel either the trails on the property or a gallop to the beach club to enjoy surf and sun. Working out in the expansive gym or enjoying a relaxing massage at the spa has motivated quite a few purchasers to take the plunge into the infinity pools at Hacienda Matapalo.

Amid North America’s housing and mortgage gloom, investors and second-home buyers are finding that the sun is still shining brightly at Hacienda Matapalo, which has become one of the country’s most sought-after destinations. The rental income of the condos, villas and homes will generate returns that make investing the proverbial no-brainer.

Appreciation in Costa Rica real estate has averaged in excess of 30 percent per year over the last decade, and pre-construction appreciation at Hacienda Matapalo has been substantially higher to date. The current property tax rate of 0.25 percent allows more of the bottom line profit to go where it belongs (in the buyer’s pocket).
IRA and 401ks have become decimated with the collapse of the stock and real estate markets in the U.S. This factor has enticed many people to use their retirement funds to purchase at Hacienda Matapalo. Hacienda Matapalo is considered a tax-deferred/exempt entity investment vehicle and is not subject to penalties. There are more social security checks being sent to Costa Rica than any other location outside the United States.

It is in times like these where fortunes are made and fortunes are lost. Being proactive now is the only way to secure your financial future. Diversifying into real estate in Costa Rica is an excellent hedge against the falling dollar, inflation and taxation. Diversifying into hard assets outside the U.S. is the best way to preserve purchasing power and provide stability to your portfolio.

Costa Rica has not been affected by the current world economic woes we have here in the U.S. Costa Rica’s economy and job base is growing… Its government is running a surplus… its banking base system is stable… and its financial markets remain strong. According to a well known and respected news organization in-depth report, Costa Rica’s real estate market has been experiencing gains in excess of 30% annually. Costa Rica does not impose a capital gains tax or taxes on money earned outside its borders. Costa Rica also has superior asset protection and banking privacy laws.

Please visit our website www.HaciendaMatapalo.com to learn all about our luxury, master planned gated community and see why the Minister of Tourism called Hacienda Matapalo “the most significant project in the region.”

An exclusive community in the heart of nature: Hacienda Matapalo

New Condos Online brings you this stunning new development in Costa Rica: Hacienda Matapalo is located between Quepos and Domincal, which will soon be connected by the southern spur of the Costanera highway, and occupies 665 acres of prime land between the coast and the mountains. Rising to almost 2,000 feet above sea level, it includes a 125-acre nature preserve at its highest elevation to ensure the pristine local environment will forever remain part of this upscale development.

The gated community gives investors a choice of 1.25-acre sites for custom-designed homes, as well as single-family dwellings, villas, and condos, all with state-of-the- art connectivity and 24-hour security. Given the similarities of landscape and climate with the South Pacific, the architecture draws on local materials and renewable resources, inspired by Polynesian and Balinese design well suited to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Currently available are:

‘The Polynesian’ two and threebedroom condos, completely detached from neighboring units and situated in four-story buildings with tropical forest views; ‘Las Floras’ freestanding single-family villas in configurations ranging up to 3,100 feet, three-bedroom homes over two stories; ‘Las Vistas’ low-density town-homes, all of which have incredible ocean views. Private homesites are also on offer for those who wish to build a custom residence in a choice of architectural styles.

The community center and ‘El Corazon’ clubhouse, with panoramic views over the Pacific, houses a variety of swimming pools, a fully equipped fitness center, sporting facilities and spa.

For those who prefer to swim in the ocean, Hacienda Matapalo’s own shuttle transports guests to its private beach club. And the private equestrian center means you can explore the forest trails on horseback, cooling off in waterfalls on the way.

Less than half a mile away from 25 miles of virgin coastline, close to Playa Linda, Playa Matapalo, and Playa Ventanas, and in an area where development will be strictly limited, Hacienda Matapalo has been identified by International Living Magazine as possibly the best investment opportunity in Costa Rica.

To date, almost one third of purchase here have been made via Individual Retirement Accounts (also known as Self-Directed IRAs). US retirees are free to undertake tax-free rollovers from existing retirement accounts to Self- Directed IRAs, whereupon they can invest in any form of real estate they wish. As you’d expect, there are some important rules and regulations to comply with to satisfy the IRS, but Michael Starkey, one of the developers, in an experienced financial planner and is available to counsel interested parties.

Costa Rica develops — Hacienda Matapalo

People who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn’t Throw Stones in the Costa Rica Rain Forest

Hacienda Matapalo, the leading Costa Rica Real Estate development has just released the Crystal House. This innovative masterpiece enables a 360 view of the Rain Forest and an ongoing peek of your nearest neighbors including several types of monkeys, Blue Morpho Butterflies, and numerous species of birds.

Hacienda Matapalo has just released the Crystal House enabling a 360 view of the Rain Forest and an ongoing peek of your nearest neighborly visitors including several types of monkeys, Blue Morpho Butterflies, and numerous species of birds.

The Crystal House was designed by award winning architect Miguel Wong, and provides the best that Costa Rica Real Estate has to offer. Located in the Pre-Construction Resort style community of Hacienda Matapalo, the Crystal House is surrounded by the sanctuary of a private 125 acre nature preserve, waterfalls, and is located near the Beach Club, Clubhouse, Equestrian Center, Retail Center, and of course, the Pacific Ocean.


Hacienda Matapalo is the best selling development in Costa Rica, and has been featured by International Living Magazine, Newsweek, and will be featured in the November issue of Smart Money Magazine as one of the leading Eco friendly projects in the Costa Rica Real Estate environment. Location has been the key to success in determining where to build the best project in Costa Rica, and the choice of "where the mountains meet the sea" has proven to be the best location in the Costa Rica Real Estate marketplace, as evidenced by the $40 million dollars in sales by this Developer in the first year. Having frontage on the Pacific Coast Highway (Castanera), and proximity to a new 80,000 SF hospital, and a soon to be constructed International Airport has added substantial value to the location factor of success of this project.

Living in the Crystal House, one is reminded of being part of the environment and ecofriendly culture that is Costa Rica, and the ambiance of the Crystal House illustrates quite clearly that this may be the best opportunity in Costa Rica Real Estate. The other proverb that alludes to the Crystal House is "Having ones cake…" Imagine being able to use an IRA/401k to purchase a dream of Costa Rica Real Estate? The developers of Hacienda Matapalo have coordinated an investment vehicle that drives you to ownership of the Crystal House in a tax sheltered investment that appreciates from the moment you place your deposit.

Remember, "People who live in Glass Houses…"

Nature has smiled on this small country of 52,100 square kilometers, with the geography, and climate making it
an ideal location for tourism and real estate appreciation approaching 34% annually since 1994.
Historically, the only tourists venturing down south on the Pacific coast were those going to see Manuel Antonio
Park (the most widely visited park in Costa Rica), and the surfing crowd going to Dominical, or to view the area
where "the mountains meet the sea" .


Changes are coming-

1) A new international airport in being built in Palma Sur and is scheduled for completion by the year 2010

3) The Costenera Highway (Pacific Coast Highway) is in final stages of being fully paved (to Panama)


4) The largest marina in Central America is being built in Quepos


This has led to a new construction boom, with most of the developers just now seeking the right property to
purchase and begin planning a development. However, one developer, saw the writing on the wall, and was able to be ahead of the curve in this booming region. The developers of hacienda Matapalo purchased a 665 acre parcel of oceanview land before the changes mentioned above and are offering a luxury gated community with amenities never before seen in the region at Pre-Construction pricing. Hacienda Matapalo is in the final stages of the permitting process, and is offering an opportunity for savvy investors and those seeking a retirement/second home.
