    Since there is no hotel yet, that at least is not very accurate. Maybe it is rented for the 2008 season?

    There have certaibly not been enough people visiting Sal to buy anything out. This can be a trick by the agent – who suddenly finds the last one just for you – or may simple represent small deposits from people who have not even bothered to look. Every major development worth its salt always claims to be sold out – even the Golf resort without a golf course. But usually a Phase 2 is announced at a higher price. A lot come back on the market when people actually take a look at what they are buying and realise that they are paying far over the odds for something that may still be years off. Some of the asking prices bear no relationships to costs.

    Well that is confidence for you. Have you seen all the junk littering the islands? Empty containers and scrapped cars are all over the shop. Haven`t seen too many move so far but maybe the Camara will get tough when it gets all the money from the 6% sales taxes in.

    It comes across that the freelance journo had not bothered to go there but had perhaps been to a roadshow and copied down the advert. The photos are not of Sao Nicolau but Murdeira which was built four years ago. Hope the Irish lass from Cork knows where she has bought!

    Most Irish used not to travel so far and are just now getting into the buying abroad game and being more adventurous than the Brits. It can`t be just the weather as scores are piling into foggy Newfoundland. Its a small country where news travels fast and Cape Verdes has hit the jackpot. Of course,all those direct flights from Knock will help too.

    The latest information is that they filled in the wrong paper work and that this has held things up for six months. Maybe they wanted bangers.

    Perhaps somebody could start another one for owners and prospective owners?

    The one thing that the water park will draw -if it is ever completed – is mosquitos. These are presently delightfully absent from most of Sal. You should really take a look before buying one of the more costly properties, which fronts onto a junk yard and backs onto the sewage plant.

    The organised flight would have been for IRISH JOURNALISTS. But Tom is making a lot of noise and it is coming across the Irish sea loud but not always clear.

    Try the uk info sites on cape verde for flight information.

    Why do you not go out there and look. There are dozens of investments that are better value than these two or the one that Dee is flogging. Go and look and perhaps save thousands of euros by not buying into the mobster complexes built on propaganda.

    Apparently that has already been withdrawn. You are not dealing with tyros here. This is a professional mob.

    Those of us that have been here for a while have all discussed the libel laws which are very fierce in the UK. I do not know what they are like in other countries. Sambala chased the Cape Verde Portal over a defamatory statement for months with lawyers. You are not going to see that happen here. But there is clear evidence of massive mark ups om some properties. Work out the price per square metre and you can see for yourself.

    We have dealt with all the solicitors in Sal and they either failed to turn up to meeting, failed to answer phone calls or charged a lot for doing nothing. Jorge is a Portuguese accountant and can help you through the Escritura,which is quite straightforward. More importantly he can tell you which developer to trust and which has not got the money to complete the building. We are not allowed to put his address and he does not advertise. So go to Santa maria and ask.
