By becoming Ara Macao Charter Members, these special few will receive the following special incentives

- Priority choice of unit location In Phase 1
- Round trip air fare for two persons and 5 nights accommodations, including food & beverage, in a luxury resort on the beach in Placencia, Belize

NOTE: To become a Charter Member, a purchaser must purchase one of the 100 units being offered in Phase I of the Ara Macao Resort and Marina. The Charter Member may choose from two purchase options:
- Place a 150,000 deposit and receive 20% off pre-construction price
- Place a 75,000 deposit and receive 10% off pre-construction price
Priced from the low 400's
The two year guaranteed rent program means that for 2 years from delivery of your unit you will be guaranteed rental income if you choose to place your unit into our rental program. This program assures you that you will receive the guaranteed rent as promised or we will pay you the difference monthly. The rental income you'll receive monthly can be used to pay mortgage payments, HOA dues, insurance, rounds of golf, or anything else you choose to use it for. There will be ongoing incentives to come in the years to come.The Opportunity
What is the value of this discount and what is the economic benefit to the Charter Member? The median pre-construction price of a condominium or villa in the Ara Macao Resort and Marina is approximately $500,000. Under Option 1, the discount would work out to a $100,000 deduction from the purchase price. That discount would translate to $100,000 of pure equity on the day of closing and delivery. Moreover, for qualified Charter Members, the Developer will arrange commitments from local Belizean mortgage lenders, some with international affiliations, to fully finance the purchase balance of $250,000 including closing costs. This means that the Charter Member would not be required to make any further cash payments.
In like fashion, the selection of option 2 with a 10% discount would translate to a $50,000 deduction from the purchase price. However, it is likely that the purchaser in this case would need to provide an additional cash payment at closing and delivery. Assuming that financing was available at a Loan to value ratio of 70%, the purchaser would need to come up with an additional $75,000 at closing.
These prices and terms may only be the beginning of a steady upward trajectory in value for the Charter Member regardless of which option is chosen. This statement is based on the results of a recent Comparative Market Analysis commissioned by the Developer of Ara Macao, in which pricing and features of residential offerings in 12 resort and retirement communities located in more mature destinations throughout the Caribbean and Central America were reviewed. The analysis showed that the published pre-construction price of condos and villas at Ara Macao may be on average about 50% lower than comparable units in neighboring destinations. Stated another way, Ara Macao Charter Members may be looking at a 50% upward price adjustment in the near to intermediate term as Belize becomes more recognized as a preferred resort and retirement destination.
Here are the numbers. The standard for comparing condominium and villa prices is typically the price per saleable interior square foot (PSF) since it is the most widely available data. As depicted in the analysis, the current weighted average PSF at Ara Macao is $425. Within the 12 comparable communities reviewed, prices ranged from $374 PSF to $1,051 PSF with a mean average of $678. This means that at a current weighted average price of $425 PSF Ara Macao Charter Members may look forward to a potential future price rise of 59% by just achieving the Caribbean mean of $678.
This remarkable opportunity may seem hard to believe. Believe it. The Developer of Ara Macao has an advantage that many developers elsewhere in the Caribbean do not. Ara Macao land was acquired several years ago at a very low $1,184 per linear foot of beach front just as the boom market in the Caribbean was getting underway. To put that price in perspective, our above referenced Comparative Market Analysis looked at 20 comparable destinations around the Caribbean and the cost of raw beachfront land in each. The analysis shows that our competitors around the Caribbean are paying on average over $15,000 per linear foot of beach front with some prices ranging as high as $40,000 for just one linear foot of Caribbean beachfront land.
In recent years, the value of the Ara Macao property has risen to well over $3,000 per linear foot of beachfront putting the development in a secure equity position. Naturally, you would expect that the increase in land value would be reflected in the current published pricing of Ara Macao condos and villas to enhance the Developer’s profitability. Not so. Ara Macao has only recently received clearance from the Belize Government to begin the marketing and development of the project. So to get Phase I of Ara Macao launched as quickly as possible, the Developer is willing to pass on its pricing advantage to the next 100 purchasers. We encourage you to move quickly on this offer because as these units sell out and the project gains sales momentum, it will no longer be necessary to price condo and villa residences at such low prices.
