How Does KSI Realty Work a Successful International Property Show?

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

 

Kijner & Sons International Realty is pleased to share with you in-depth details about one of our recent Overseas Property & Investment Shows that took place in Shanghai, China.

Learn more about how KSI Realty manages the various aspects of an international real estate event, from setting up a colorful and attractive booth to greeting the many visitors and assiting families and investors looking to purchase income-producing properties and/or relocate to Florida (USA), France, Thailand and Costa Rica.

Located in Shanghai, China, the KSI Realty team proudly represented themselves at the Shanghai Investment and Property Exhibition Show. The exhibition center is situated in the heart of Shanghai, and the building offers large-scale conferences and exhibition services for important political, economic, science, technology and cultural activities. The center has a total floor space of 80,000 square meters, large enough for massive exhibition shows.

Over the four-day exhibition, from March 15-March 18, the KSI Realty team, representing information on Thailand, Costa Rica, France and the USA, met and discussed many investment and immigration opportunities with various Chinese investors. We were located at booth 2009 situated at the entrance of the show, where the KSI Realty team was pumped, organized and ready.

The booth looked beautiful and was decorated with banners displaying the activities that KSI performs, including banners depicting some of the exclusive properties that KSI Realty was selling in France, Costa Rica, Thailand and the U.S.A. In one corner of the booth, KSI Realty had their representative lawyers from Florida, discussing mainly EB-5 immigration to the United States with potential clients. EB-5 immigration has been very attractive to foreigners looking to settle in the U.S.A and quickly become eligible to be a Green Card holder. Throughout the show, at the front of the booth, the KSI Realty team displayed and handed out various flyers and brochures for people to take at their leisure, depicting the investments to be made in Costa Rica and the U.S.A, as well as immigration to the United States, and even brochures depicting real estate owned properties in Miami Florida

On Saturday March 17, from 11am - 12pm, the entire KSI Realty team, held a free lecture in front of hundreds of people. Each member of the team discussed their activities by giving a brief presentation, and the KSI Realty team was lucky enough to have Charle Yin and Elise Hei as our interpreters. 

For four days straight, non-stop, the entire KSI Realty team was up on their feet, greeting, answering, and assisting potential clients with questions and interests in our portfolio activities. There was constantly a great deal of hype and energy. A great deal of Chinese people throughout the show decided to meet with Marc Kijner, Ivette Loaiza, or Anthony Olson, to receive a more detailed explanation and an in-depth analysis of an investment or immigration endeavor that they wished to take on. Our team was more than happy to sit with visitors for up to an hour, because we understand that our clients have concerns and we are there to assist them. 

Local visitors from Shanghai, as well as from other provinces in China, like Wong Zu and Changzhou, came and attended the exhibition show. Many of the people that came to our booth varied in age, as well as social status. At times, families of four or five came together to inquire about immigration or investment purposes. Most of our visitors were friendly, and were very well informed about the obstacles concerning legal and financial issues when it comes to purchasing properties. The people we were dealing with were mainly business-oriented people, with the occasional elderly couple looking for a retirement home.

Investing in Costa Rica

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

The second most frequent question asked by investors looking to acquire a property in Costa Rica is often "How can I obtain legal immigration status?". As pointed out by Costa Rican Attorney Alberto Pinto Monturiol and further explained in KSI Realty's "Investing in Costa Rica" section, there are 3 ways to obtain residency for foreign businessmen - other than family ties with a native Costa Rican:

1. The investor status

Investors have to demonstrate that they have invested in the country and that they have a Costa Rican corporation that owns and runs a business. The best businesses and companies should be in one of the following categories/industries:
> Tourism: Hotels, Resorts & Casinos, Bed & Breakfast, Lodges, Site Seeing Activities and Extreme Outdoors Sports Activities (aerial tram, river rafting, eco-tourism...)
> Tree plantation with an initial investment of $100,000 in the first 3 years
> Productive projects in which Costa Rican labor is hired (industrial production of goods or free trade zone activities)
> Banking Investments
> Real Estate Investments
> "National Interest" type projects defined by the Costa Rican Government (as of today for example, ecological protection programs)

A complete list of requirements for each specific activity will be provided by the attorney in Costa Rica in order to apply for residency when the type of investment is decided by the client.

2. Retiree Status

A retiree has to demonstrate receiving a life pension from a government or a retirement fund of no less than $1,000 per month. A complete list of requirements for this status will be provided by the attorney in Costa Rica in order to apply for residency, but the one mentionned above is the most important.

3. Rentista Status

This status applies to a person who receives a monthly allowance of no less than $2,500 per month. The person has further to demonstrate and guarantee that he/she will perceive this monthly income for at least 2 years with a letter from a first order bank or financial institution. A complete list of other requirements for this status will be provided by the attorney in Costa Rica in order to apply for residency, but the one mentionned above is the most important.

 


The third most frequent question asked by businessmen looking to invest in Costa Rica is "How much will it cost me to close a deal (expenses and legal fees) and obtain legal immigration status?". Costa Rican Attorney Alberto Pinto Monturiol covers some of the most important costs associated with the acquisition of a Costa Rican property and the application for a legal residency status:

1. Closing cost for a Real Estate deal is 4.5% of the value of the sales price. This includes a 1.5% tax for land transfer, 1% registration stamps' fee to the National Registry and a 2% notary fee (to be paid at closing)

2. Fees for the incorporation of a Company in Costa Rica are about $750. This amont includes legal fees (legal agent fee for the first year), registration stamps, publication in the official newspaper, and obtention of legal and accounting books. All expenses and fees need to be paid at signing. This could be an option if you wish to operate a business without getting the immigration status.  

3. Attorney's fees per hour in other retained activities are about $100 per billable hour

4. To apply for a residency status, costs are broken down as follow:

> For the first and second group of nationalities mentioned in our previous post, you should account for about $3,750. This amont includes a $3,250 fee per person, plus additional expenses of about $500 per client when all required documents are provided, legalized and translated (included is an incorporation of a company in Costa Rica to start the investment process). All expenses and 50% of the fee need to be paid at the start of the process, 25% when all documents are submitted to the Immigration Office and the remaining 25% to be paid when immigration status is granted.

> For the third group of nationalities mentioned in our previous post, you should account for about $4,750. This amont includes a $4,250 fee per person, plus additional expenses of about $500 per client when all required documents are provided, legalized and translated (included is an incorporation of a company in Costa Rica to start the investment process). All expenses and 50% of the fee need to be paid at the start of the process, 25% when all documents are submitted to the Immigration Office and the remaining 25% to be paid when immigration status is granted.

> For the fourth group of nationalities mentioned in our previous post, you should account for about $7,250. This amont includes a $6,250 fee per person, plus additional expenses of about $1,000 per client when all required documents are provided, legalized and translated (included is an incorporation of a company in Costa Rica to start the investment process). All expenses and 50% of the fee need to be paid at the start of the process, 25% when all documents are submitted to the Immigration Office and the remaining 25% to be paid when immigration status is granted.
