A Lost Goal!!
ISSUE #612: June 5-12, 2016
MANAGER / DEVELOPER: Brian C. Timmons
When I started Residencias Los Jardines, I started writing a weekly newsletter -determined to tell all the good, bad, and the ugly. I knew some readers would be interested in the construction process. I expected others might be interested in the lifestyle of two people who had decided to live outside the box. For others, the adventures of Lita, the parrot and the cat took on an entertainment saga all its own.
Residencias Los Jardines is finished. We periodically have re-sales and rental availability. Some readers may be interested in this information.

Paradisus Condos / Rohrmoser
Each of the units consists of two bedrooms / two bathrooms, and a large living/dining/kitchen area. The floor plan of each of these units has eliminated the optional "den / office" divider. The result is a larger area offering more flexible furniture arrangements while still maintaining the option of including an office area. At 105m2 plus two parking spots each and storage locker, they offer a great opportunity for someone seeking views, security, central location, and first class, all round living...

Total Area (Sq Ft): 1250
This is a fully furnished 2-bedroom unit situated in a 2-story building, which has two units on the ground floor and two units on the 2nd. floor. Each unit is the same size (1,250sf) divided into 800 sf of interior space and 450 sf of covered front and back terraces. Units 106A and B are on the ground floor; Units 106 C and D are on the 2nd. Floor. The solid masonry demising wall (common wall) as well as the 5" concrete slab prevent sound transference.
Total Area (Sq Ft): 1716
This 1,716 sf. (plus parking for one car) two story, detached house, with three terraces, two bedrooms (one on each floor) and upstairs master suite is a beautiful home. This home consists of two VERY large bedrooms (one on each floor) with en-suite bathrooms and a powder room, each with large closets with extensive built-ins for personal organization. The vaulted living room and ground floor bedroom ceilings as well as the master bedroom on the 2nd floor, provide a feeling of grandeur while allowing the warmer air to rise and exit through the ceiling ventilating system. There are three TVs (one in each bedroom and one in the living room.) This is a beautiful home. There is a rough-in for a dishwasher in the kitchen area.
Weather: Lots and lots of rain... virtually every day. Traffic, accidents, and flooding due to clogged drains are the norm.
Tres Rios house repairs: One more day of repairs, then floors -I finally solved this issue, I think-; and some replacement windows... the electrical system will not be solved... The house shows well... I've had two calls, and one client viewed it twice... trouble is, he has no money until he sells is current property... this is not promising.
Paradisus: I rented the last unit but had to remove the creation of the third bedroom that the previous tenant wanted... and then moved when it was finished and furnished... I've complained about the quality of tenant applicants before... I think I now have a good one.
Car: Dealing with deferred mtnc. I hate it but have another week of this.
A Lost Goal: My goal for some time has been to simplify my life. The last 6 months have seen a decided hick-up in this... I'm not happy... as long as I am as exposed to so many people and so many "things", it will continue to be an elusive goal.
News Items of the Weeknews
1. Exit Tax: And the government claims there is no inflation... this is BS... but the colon is depreciating slightly... about 1%.
2. Riteve: I repeat myself... and the government claims there is no inflation. Actually, this is probably well deserved and way delayed. They do a good job and have not had an increase in 10+ years because the government dragged it's feet in approving a formula for adjusting prices. Like normal, the government reneged on the original commitment.
1. Government quietly jacks up the exit tax by $2
