The area is enclosed. Visitors’ information, reason for visit and license plate number are recorded at the security checkpoint at the main gate.
Currently, there are three available apartments. Information about availability can be requested by e-mail or telephone. The same applies to the prices, because each owner is responsible for their price.

Yes, the connections are good. The connections are provided by private companies (companies like TIGO, CLARO, etc.). Prices depend on the bandwidth and the desired performance.
Yes, construction should begin within one year after the signing of the contract.
We usually build and sell the houses or apartments turnkey. However, it is possible to contract only the framework of the building and do the interior design yourself.
Lots No. 62-84 can only be used for buildings designed by Architect Gernot Minke. In the lots No. 01-61 there is a limited freedom of design, that is, buildings must have only one floor and be based on a traditional style. Buildings with rectangular concrete or glass facades are not desired.
Yes, the lots all have space for the construction of a pool. The price depends on the style and size. In Paraguay there are plastic pools, low technology natural pools or tiled pools with physical and chemical treatment of the water.

Take a few days and look for suitable products in the stores in Asuncion. The contractors, who do not have the time to do this, receive the documents by email from which you can compare the samples.
In Paraguay, a lot of work is done manually and noisy machines are rarely used.
Typically, you visit the site, choose your lot and then complete the contract before a notary. The notary checks whether the property legally belongs to the seller and if it is mortgage-free. With a positive result and the receipt of the agreed purchase price in the account of the attorney, the contract is valid. The land will be registered in the name of the buyer at the “National Register”. Thereby you become the owner of the lot under Paraguayan law.
Yes, the annual property tax on a lot of 10,000 m² in 2012 was a little less than $25.

No. You may authorize a third person to give the notarized signature on your behalf.
With the signing of the contract you can still divide the land into two lots A + B, as long as neither of them is less than 400m² (minimum legal size).
You can put the operator of the development in charge of the rental and care of your property. 20% of the rental income pays for maintenance and administration. The revenue is deposited into the account you specify.
So far there is no income tax in Paraguay; income is tax-free. There is a value added tax – VAT – in the order of 10%. This should be presented in the adjustment account and is netted with the VAT paid on expenses.
Your property is rented for the purpose of a vacation or retirement home. We give price recommendations for short, medium and long term rentals. To avoid defaults, the money must be paid in advance or credit card information must be registered. The collection of rent is made simultaneously to reduce the risk of non-payment (default).
That is not the goal; we cater to an international clientele. However, German-speaking inhabitants will not be a minority.
It is possible to buy or rent a property. At this time, however, only a few rental properties are available because, currently, people prefer to build for their own use. The construction of care facilities will be started later.
At present, we cannot make any offers for elderly care. We are at an early stage and have not yet begun to hire professionals. Hired assistants can be found in Paraguay. For example, a part time home assistant costs about $250 per month.
At this point we are not advertising care-giving opportunities.
Yes. We welcome people who are here to create a new home and collaborate with their skills.
“I’m an engineer, not a philosopher,” so I really shouldn’t comment. However, in a nutshell:
The whole project concept is based on democratic principles; see “Rules of co-ownership”. At present, the seller of the lots has the majority of the votes, but that will change. As long as we have the opportunity to steer the project along a specific course, we will. For many, the journey that we start here will end here, that’s the way of a senior residence. And so, since we have traveled this far with dignity and self-determination, we would like to do so in the coming decades. Of course, decent treatment of others is important, as is dealing respectfully with the people who work here. Wherever there are problems, they are solved jointly. When I look for fellowship, I will meet a sympathizer here or there; but if I want to be left in peace I close the door.
