A Buyer's Agent to Represent Your Interests!

Isla Vida Real Estate is proud to call itself a Buyers Agency.  Our goal is to help clients find the right home, condo, land or commercial property.  We know our area and get the important information to best represent our buyer's interests.  Our fees are paid by the seller, so using a buyer's agent makes fiscal sense and will save time.  If you do not have a lot of time while in Puerto Rico, we can schedule viewings at multiple realtor's listings, often the most difficult part of buying property in Puerto Rico is arranging to see the property!



Best Property Bargains in Rincon

Rincon is one of the most popular towns on the West Coast of Puerto Rico, and for good reason!  The surf, beautiful beaches, hills and rural atmosphere provide a beautiful natural setting, add in a vibrant art community and some of the best restaurant not in San Juan and you will find Rincon to be a truly special place.

 

So if you want to get your piece of paradise, the time is now, while properties are still affordable and there are some fantastic ocean view lots still available for under $100k.  

 

I've compiled a list of a few properties that I feel are great opportunities for investment in or relocation to Rincon.  

 

Condos:

The condos near the Balneario (Public Beach) are some of my favorite properties in RIncon.  Offering close beach proximity without the threat of beach erosion, they are also close to the downtown plaza with its Sunday Farmer's market and great restaurants.  At Chalet del Mar, there is a 2 bedroom condo listed for $140k.  This property allows short term rentals and has low HOA fees,a great investment opportunity!

 

Land:

There are 3 pieces of land just up the road from Pools Beach that have recently been offered for sale, lots that vary from 850 sq meters to 995 sq meters for asking price of $135k.  I like these lots because they are walking distance to great surf and can offer views of the Aguadilla Bay.  For a more unique and private lot with a beautiful Bay view, there is an unlisted 1/4 acre lot for $300k, located just a short walk to Sandy Beach.  This is the type of lot to build your Caribbean dream home; private, breezy, beach close and with fantastic views!

 

Homes and Multiple Units:

Puntas is a very good place to invest if you want to have rental property.  There will always be surf and along with that surfers who need a place to say.  There is a 3 bedroom home, completely remodeled with a studio apartment that is listed for $350k.  It has a nice valley view and a short walk to great surfing.  Also available is a 2 unit home with apartments on each level, needs some work, listed at $230k.  Located in puntas just up the hill from great surf beaches.
