FH2 Lot 10
General Sale Info
This lot includes a 5% share of the property ownership (with your name on the title) and a 0.75 hectare / 1.85 acre personal homestead lot.
Lot 10 is located a 5 minute drive (motorcycle/quad) or 20 minute walk from the Fruit Haven 2 community area, and is only a 20 minute walk from the FH3 waterfall.
The lot is half secondary forest, including native hardwood trees and palms. The other half has been cleared and partially planted with fruit trees. There is a gentle slope down towards the west side of the lot, and a small spring water stream on the southwest corner is flowing year round and could be used to get clean water. A gravity-powered water system is already installed to lot 10, with enough pressure for a sink, shower, etc.
This lot is close to the FH2/FH3 access road, which is a private road maintained by Fruit Haven owners. You can arrive via motorcycle or quad directly to this lot, and by other vehicle once the road is connected to the other side of the river.
Broadband internet can be hooked up via installing an antenna. This could be on the side of the house depending on house height and position, or you could mount it on a pole. Installation cost is usually $150. Internet service costs about $30/month for 6 MBPS up/down (higher speeds are available). In the future, we plan to install fiberoptic internet at Fruit Haven.
For electricity, the most viable option here is a solar system, which can be installed on your house from $2-$4k for a basic system.
There is cell phone signal on this lot, but no or very weak 3G.

Fruit Haven 2 Community Area
The FH2 community area is accessible via crossing the bridge across Rio Zamora from the parking lot. The government has plans to widen the bridge in the future to make it possible for cars to pass. This community area has a basic kitchenette, bathroom, shower, and some cabins for people to rent and generate income to help with upkeep of the Fruit Haven 2 property.
We encourage you to come visit the land, or you can arrange a Skype or Facebook call with us to ask detailed questions about the land. 0.75 hectares is more than enough land to raise food for a family.
Lot 10 has a black water hose running through it, that is part of a private water system used by various FH2 owners. It is mostly underground. If you purchase this lot, you may not interfere with this tube or charge the owners of the water system for its placement, nor may you prevent the owners from doing occasional maintenance on it, though you can reasonably specify times and access route
FH2 Property Development Fund
Your purchase of Lot 10 incurs no immediate obligation to the FH2 Property Development Fund.
After the current budget period is up at the end of 2023, you should expect to pay about $300-$500 per year towards the fund in order to cover general property maintenance expenses including marking property boundaries, upkeep of the FH2 community area, et cetera. The budget for this fund is proposed by any trustee or the project administrator, and approved by all FH2 owners, at the end of each year for the following year.
The closing costs will be $1300.
