For Rent Costa Rica FAQ
- Does For Rent Costa Rica close bookings, charge commissions or get involved in the negotiation of a deal?
No, FRCR charges a flat, monthly or yearly fee depending on the type of property for generating tenant inquiries sent instantaneously by email to the inbox of the owner/manager. Managers of 5 or more units should contact support to discuss their needs.
- Is FRCR like the big box, American vacation rental companies?
No. Those services work for generating US-based, English speaking tenants. FRCR has found that you can use all of those and still have significant vacancies. FRCR intentionally targets different market segments that DO NOT overlap with those services. You will not typically get the same tenants as those provide. FRCR is also cheaper and has a massive resources section about Costa Rica.

For long term and commercial listings, user's can also change the available or "move-in" date.
- Can I run specials?
Yes, you are free to edit your prices as you see fit. If you would like extra help highlighting your price in FRCR's social media, please send us an email. Last minute specials are a great option!
- My monthly property is now leased...will I lose my listing?
No. Your listing will remain dormant until you need it again. You will not be charged while it is dormant. We suggest that you reactivate your listing 3 months prior to your tenant's move out date to reduce the risk of vacancy.
