Costa Rican Real Estate Auction

Costa Rican Real Estate Auction

Ever considered moving to Costa Rica?  Well, if you answered, ‘Yes’, then here is the perfect opportunity.

Selling Regardless of Price!

Albert Burney is scheduled to auction Casa Metta, a 2.7± acre mountain top estate on March 23rd.  This gated estate has a two-story main house and guest house with views of the Pacific Ocean yet only 25 minutes from San Jose.

Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with a modern capital city, reliable utility service, clean water, lush rain forests, long stretches of deserted tropical beaches, fun beach towns, quaint rural villages, bustling cities, cool mountain getaways, and pristine lake regions.

Another big bonus is the high-quality, low-cost healthcare. There are two systems: private, for which you can pay cash or use insurance, and the government-run public system which you join when become a legal resident. Overall, expats in Costa Rica pay a fraction of what they did back home for medical care.

Come and experience pura vida, “pure life,” which is the unofficial slogan of Costa Rica.  This laid-back attitude is one of the main characteristics that draws many of the expats to the country.

Casa Metta will be sold at auction to the highest bidder, regardless of price, on auction day.

Outdoor enthusiasts flock to Madison River Valley

A River Runs Through It

Based on a true story, Brad Pitt and Robert Redford brought this fishing tale to life on the big screen back in 1992. America was treated to beautiful Montana scenery, so lovely in fact that the film was awarded an Academy Award for Best Cinematography.

Not far from where this was filmed rests the Madison River Valley Lodge property selling at auction October 15th. Anglers enjoy some of the most diverse and consistent fly fishing here, making it one of the best trout streams in the Western US and Canada. Sentiments like “trophy sized” and “blue ribbon” are often shared in these parts.

But you don’t have to fish to experience Madison River! The whole family can partake in a meandering float trip downstream through the wondrous outdoors. There’s also plenty of opportunity for  boating and water sports on one of the many lakes in the valley.

Hikers, bikers, and campers love the surrounding Madison Mountain Range (the second highest range in Montana) where they enjoy national forests, high mountain lakes, a view of the famous Palisades, and plentiful wildlife.

Because of the rich diversity of Montana’s wildlife and its sprawling landscape, hunters consider it to be a premier destination. Montana is blessed with more than 30 million acres of public hunting land, populated by elk, bighorn sheep, mountain lion, bear, bison, antelope, moose, and waterfowl.

“Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening. Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the river and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.”  — Norman Maclean, author

What sellers are saying about Albert Burney

Dear Warren and James:
Over the past thirty-five years, I have been involved in the purchase and sale of many properties.
In the sale of any property, the marketing is always of key importance. To be successful in the handling of properties ——— especially in today’s rugged economy ——— a far reaching marketing approach is absolutely necessary. One can no longer wait patiently for local real estate agents to generate sufficient interest.

Lakeview, OR Land Auction

106 years later, auctions are still in vogue.

Auctions go waaay back in Lakeview, OR!

Long ago in 1909, the Oregon Valley Land Company conducted a weeklong auction to dispose of land grants acquired from the construction of the Oregon Central Military Wagon Road. The auction was advertised nationwide. The rural parcels also included a separate town lot in Lakeview. Thousands of people came to Lakeview for the auction and many others purchased property sight-unseen. During the auction, a total of 340,000 acres were sold in approximately 14,000 parcels. Lake County used part of its income from the sale to finance a new county courthouse. The new brick courthouse was built in the center of town, replacing the wooden building that had served as the county court since 1876.

So there you have it! Auctions work. Always have. Always will.
