    Default Granada Hacienda - A reflection on the times.

    First - I don't know these people from Adam and they have not been (that I am aware of) active on any forum on life or living in Nicaragua so I have no idea from fact why they built this.

    My SWAG is that they saw an opportunity to make a good return (pre troubles) in an expat hotspot (Granada) and went to town on this build.

    This place is a real nice looker - And it appears they spent on top notch materials.

    From what I can piece together it was originally put up as a rental for $850/month then (beginning July I think, maybe was mid June) listing it "as a steal at $140K firm" - Then a few weeks later $140K negotiable - Today - Faceboof typical Ad day (Firdays) it now shows @ $112 negotiable.

    Too bad for them I guess.

    A gaggle of beach houses went up for list on FB from Friday to today.


    Looks like the collective will of 10 or so beach house business owners broke over the weekend, or like the other Granada house - The official channels have all come up empty and they are now in the got out of dodge stage and flooding ads everywhere.

    Today's price - Prepared fresh - $105K

    Looks like they are trying to leave with 1/2 a shirt.

    I doubt it will sell for more than 60, if at all.

    Picked up some tools for a very good price, cheaper than Don Tightwad could buy at a yard sale in the states and ship down. Problem is, there were never enough real expats here to generate enough quality used stuff to keep us long timers happy!
