  4. 4. Overview & Background This property has been in the German owner s family for many years. The current, local owner inherited the property from his father a few years ago. To take a unique marketing approach in a challenging economy, the owner contacted a group of German business executives that have numerous international connections and asked them to use their contacts to market the property on his behalf. Our group has members in the Dominican Republic, Germany, and the US and can communicate in English, German, and Spanish. We have taken extensive measures to protect all parties from any potential fraud. The transaction will be handled by a Denver, Colorado law firm, which is listed by Martindale-Hubbell as one of the preeminent law firms specializing in real estate. The same law firm will be handling the money transfer and distribution. All payments, including down payments, will be put into an escrow account at the Denver law firm. The law firm will only disburse the funds when the buyer confirms that the property is in the buyer s name. The seller is the sole owner of the property and the property has a clear title and is free of debts and liens. An official 2008 “Tasacion” (appraisal) confirms that the property is zoned for tourism and, based on its location and the quality of the beachfront, out of four possible tiers, it is rated “excellent” -- the highest rating. In the Dominican Republic to make property purchases more transparent and to prevent “surprises” for the buyer, as of April 4, 2009, a “deslinde” is required for any property sale. The “deslinde” procedure converts a provisional title that guarantees the property right of ownership for a portion of land within a bigger parcel into a definite title that guarantees the ownership of an individual parcel. A “deslinde”, as well as an official GPS survey, is available for this property. We named the property The Manatee Peninsula and a website with more information is available (provided upon request). Our website features documents for download, links to more pictures, and a movie about the property. The property has the perfect shape for a luxury resort with villas, a private community, or even a mixed development that would allow every individual villa not only extreme privacy, but also an extraordinary water view. The property can be sub-divided and individual waterfront lots can be sold for a tremendous profit. The property might also be turned into a private retreat for a well-appointed individual or as a rehab center. With the high-end yacht market growing, this enormous beachfront property offers the buyer the possibility to dock one or more yachts. Theoretically, there is even enough acreage length and depth to put in an 8,000-foot runway for commercial planes. The Manatee Peninsula
  5. 5. Overview & Background (cont.) Christopher Columbus stayed on this historical property during his second trip to the New World and anchored his “yachts” in the property's lagoon while he built the settlement La Isabella. From the property you can see the “Templo de las Americas,” a church built to celebrate the 500th anniversary of La Isabella. The seller has requested that the property be priced far below market value at only US $ 20,888,000 (US $14.50 per square meter). This is unheard of for a property with nearly 4.5 miles of beachfront. The property is priced US $720,000 lower than the official bank estimate (made in May 2008) that values the property at $15 per square meter! Although the owner inherited the property he is preparing for retirement and this is your chance to purchase the property far below market value, develop it, and then collect an incredible return on your investment. This makes it the seller s loss and the buyer's gain! Our group respects the seller's request to quickly find a buyer that recognizes this exceptional opportunity and to accept the first offer at this low price. The buyer will be in good hands -- members of our group have been involved in real estate construction of similar types of projects in the Dominican Republic for many years and are prepared to answer any questions related to building on the property. We would also be glad to share the contact information of local resources. We are well connected on the island and would also be happy to assist with any permit related questions and procedures. The Dominican Republic Government is extremely eager to increase tourism in Luperon and La Isabella and is very supportive of any investments in that area. The Manatee Peninsula
