Jeffrey Epstein’s New Mexico ranch has taken another steep price cut.
The Post has learned that after about a year and a half on the market, the ranch is now down a total of $9.5 million.
The property first went up for sale in July 2021 for $27.5 million, before slashing the price by $6 million in July to $21.5 million.
Last month, the home’s price was slashed by another $3 million, and the ill-fated ranch now sits at $18 million.
It was a different story for their New York City townhouse, which previously sold for around $50 million in March 2021, and his Palm Beach Mansionwhich sold for $18 million and was later demolished in April of the same year.
During this, in March, his two former private Caribbean islands, collectively dubbed the “Pedophile Islands” for the atrocities committed there, were listed for sale for $125 million, and did not stay on the market long. However, in June price fell 12% to $110 million.
Thus far, all money from the sale of his properties is expected to go toward resolving outstanding lawsuits and the costs of operating the property, Daniel Weiner, an attorney for Epstein’s estate, previously told the Post.
“Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used for the routine administration of the estate, including the required payment of taxes, creditors and claimants,” Weiner said.
“Now that COVID-19 travel restrictions are beginning to ease, this unique property should be more easily accessible to a greater number of potential buyers,” Weiner said.
But it doesn’t look like anyone with his corrupt past wants to invest in New Mexico property.
Over the years, women came forward accusing the New York-based financier of sexual assault at his New Mexico ranch. Although he was never charged with a crime in the state, the compound has been portrayed as integral to his alleged sex trafficking operation by several women who claim they were trafficked and raped at the farm .
Computer scientist and author Jaron Lanier told the New York Times that he once spoke to a scientist who described how Epstein’s goal was to impregnate 20 women at a time at a 33,000-square-foot property called the Zorro Ranch. And it’s located outside of Santa Fe.
Spanning a whopping 7,600 acres, the ranch is home to a grand, three-story, four-bedroom main house as well as a nearby caretaker’s residence. Additional structures including a grass airstrip and hangar are also part of the ranch. Other facilities include a stables, a firehouse and a yurt.
