That depends on the house, it would be wise to go to the local municipality where the taxes will be paid to inquire about the value of the land itself so you can back that out of the equation to see exactly what you are paying for the house as land out in the mountains of Veracruz where we live is very cheap, all they grow here is Coffee and cane, you will see a little corn but not much.We are considering this 2-story house on a 40 acre pine forest in the mountains of Veracruz. The price is about 120,000 dollars. Is it a good deal?
We are very nearby, let me know if you want to meet for dinner sometime, we found a great restaurant for mole in Fortin de los Flores.Zorro, We live in Cordoba, Ver. and have an avocado farm in Coscomatepec....have lived here 30 years. Just wanted to see if any foresters were around.....frank
I'm from Texas and my wife is from Mexico City, I retired early and came here to enjoy life.Sure, my name is Frank, from New Orleans, and my wife is Ania from Poland. We were teachers at UDLA and then here at the TEC de monterrey. What is your story, Zorro? [delete]
The same thing happens here even though I am not close at all to the fields. It travels a long way.When they burn the cane the ashes fall from the sky in large flakes and a fine black dust, it creeps into the house and covers the. porch. We kept the plastic covers for our patio furniture.
I love the smell of burning cane in the afternoon.That is interesting. I didn't realize they burn the cane before harvesting, I just assumed it was after.
There is a large protected area, Bosque La Primavera, just west of Guadalajara that is covered with pine and oak forests. The farmers surrounding it also burn their fields. However, here the forests are very dry for half of the year and it is common for the fires to spread into the Bosque.
