|Property Description: The property is a farm of 466 hectares (1,165 acres) located off the main highway from Muelle to Los Chiles, 55 kilometers to the northeast of Muelle. There are 40 kilometers of gravel road passing the town of Coopevega to the rural location of Moravia de Cutris. The area generally is devoted to forestry and cattle.
There are two farms that are joined and owned by a corporation (Sociedad Anónima) Hacienda Hohuma. Both farms are adjacent and are fronted by a public road that is graveled, but not paved. There is an internal road of dirt construction. This requires a Four Wheel Drive vehicle in the rainy season and would have to be substantially improved to accommodate truck farming. When the farm is sold the buyer can purchase the stock of the Sociedad Anónima that holds title to the property and this can permit avoidance of transfer taxes at the Registro Nacional.
One sector of the farm has an area of 185 hectáreas. This area has 89 hectáreas with 8000 square meters in the payment program for forest conservation.
The adjacent sector has an area of 280 hectáreas. The two farms are proximate to each other. This location has 203 hectáreas with 4000 square meters in the payment program for forest conservation.
The farms have ample water supply for the cattle operation in the form of creeks and three small lakes. The pasture is convertable to annual crops. For crops like pineapple that require frequent shipping the road there would have to be improved.
There is home construction of two stories, 154 square meters, and there are two roofed corrals for the cattle. Both the home and corrals are served by a well with a pump.
There is a forest conservation contract for environmental services issued by FONOFIFO an office of the Ministry of the Environment. This is a five year contract paying $64usd per hectare per year for 293.2 hectares, or in this case $18,765. This represents a 6.4% annual return on the investment if the purchase price is $1,000 per hectare. (The land in forest has been appraised at $1,000/hectare, the pasture and land suitable for crops at $3,000). The conservation contracts are for five years and this contract is in its second year payable in 2018. Contracts are transferable to new ownership and are almost always renewed for another five year term. A copy of the contract will be provided with the sale and the transfer made by either buyer’s or seller’s attorney.
The topography of the land is rolling terrain, but not steep. Most of the land can be traversed in vehicle and there are horses on the farm. The cattle operation is to raise calves. While cattle for calving has a higher return than meat cattle, it is only modestly profitable, so paying a high price for the land does not make economic sense. There is capacity for 300 or more head of cattle and a document on the cattle operation is available, as well as soil test results.
