I need some clarification

Recommended Posts

Could you please explain how all of this will work?  How will you divide produce from the community garden and everything? What are the fees? Livestock farm price control? And so on? Clubhouse fees?

Hello DK916, those are all very good questions!

We will have an aquaponics that will produce more greens and herbs than a community of this size can consume. The size of the aquaponics system is calculated that it will provide all the personal consumption needs of the community and have much more for sale. All the products that are not consumed by the community will be sold, and the proceeds from the sales will be used to offset the cost of maintenance of the food production and common grounds like the Clubhouse.

Our goal is to have no association fees. Everyone hates those.
As to the distribution of the food that is produced in the subdivision. This is the rule. When you purchase a lot, you are entitled to a certain set percentage of the produce of the subdivision. You can take as much as needed for you and your family for personal consumption but not to exceed that percentage. You can not take more than is needed and sell it outside or share it with somebody.

You have to understand. We are not promising to fulfill all of the food consumption needs of the residents. We would have something that people might appreciate having for free. Livestock would be limited to milk production, but we would not be able to supply everyone with meat. Same with chickens and eggs. Things that are in abundance (produce from aquaponics, fruits from trees), you can just go ahead and take it. For things that are in limited quantities, we will have a manager who will be in charge of distribution for those that will request it.

At first, we will have a conscious approach. If we see that this will not work, we will have to put stricter regulations in place.

Regarding Clubhouse fees, there would be none. We have ideas on how to provide that service at no cost to residents.

If we reserve a lot, who is building the house? Your builder or we can do it ourselves? What is the price you charge for the construction? I am really interested, just have so many questions.

First, we have to complete the sale of the land and then start to build, no reservation of lots will be allowed. That way, money would be saved on taxes. Otherwise, 19% VAT would be charged to the total amount, land plus the building.

You can hire us to build for you, build it yourself, or employ another builder, whatever you prefer,  assuming that the house complies with the CC&R's. To give you a quote, we must know more about what you are looking to build and on what property.

That is good that you have many questions, will try to answer all of them.

    • No, I have not had any problems from the Chilean side of the import. The delay is because of the lock downs in the countries we order from. Many can not come out to work, and many are understaffed..... The whole chain is broken, and everyone needs more time to finish a task.
    • Is the reason for the delay because Chile is now strict with import?
    • You are right. Personally, it did not affect us much. We do miss going out for dinner or go to Santiago to watch a movie, but oh well, that is not a huge loss. Did it affect the project? Definitely! Many containers that we were supposed to get from China and Europe have been delayed a lot. Some have already arrived, but some are still not here.
    • So it seems that the coronavirus did not affect you guys much. Did it change or affect the project?
    • No, most restaurants are closed. There are some open, but no sit-in dining is available. You can order and take it with you. Some restaurants offer deliveries as well.
