One Man’s Loss Is Another Man’s Gain

Nica Investments LogoNica investments does not maintain “listings” of the same Nicaragua real estate offered for sale by every realty company or individual in the country. Nor does Nica Investments tack a sign on the wall of a house that already has one, two, three or even four other signs stating the obvious… this property is for sale and I want to be the person who sells it.

What Nica Investments does is locate well priced properties in ideal locations that our clients would do well purchasing. One such purchase opportunity is about to become available.

There are five adjoining lots in the initial phase of a subdivision that were previously considered sold. The term of the existing agreement to purchase is about to expire, and the seller has already moved on to phase two. They will be offered for sale at the end of this week.

The lots are on a paved road, are fully serviced, flat and ready to build on. The lots are about 58 meters deep and the approximate frontage of each is 30 meters.

The seller is asking US$34,900 per lot. However, he would be open to negotiating with a purchaser interested in buying all five lots. It is possible the seller would even consider a joint venture partnership with a developer willing and able to construct five homes. Assistance with marketing would be provided, and construction would have to begin within 60 days of an agreement being reached.

My personal recommendation to clients is to purchase all five lots at as good a price as can be negotiated, then resell them… with houses constructed on each. Why do I suggest this? Because this subdivision is not one of the pie in the sky developments that dot the Nicaragua landscape. All of the seller’s available lots in phase one are sold except for these five. Within the first phase there are already homes built and occupied, and others are under construction. These lots front a quality paved road, with water, electricity, and streetlights already in place… not promised and unfulfilled, as is so often the case in Nicaragua.

Soon the infrastructure for phase two will begin, and soon after the marketing of phase two lots will commence. It’s a sure bet that when prospective phase two purchasers start to drive past these few remaining phase one lots they’ll not last long.
