Things To Consider Before Buying Property In The Dominican Republic – Part 2

Things To Consider Before Buying Property In The Dominican Republic – Part 2

Your Perfect Villa

is waiting for you at casa linda

Buying a property is one of the most popular investments that many soon-to-be retirees consider. Some look for investments in their home countries, while others prefer investing in property in warmer countries. The Dominican Republic, for instance, has been home to many ex-pats over the years. Retirees and snowbirds flee the cold to find warmth on the tropical island of the Dominican Republic. If you’re looking to invest in the Dominican Republic, read part two of “Things to Consider Before Buying Property in the Dominican Republic” to help you find the most suitable property for you.

4. Does The Area Have a Strong Ex-Pat Community?

While moving to a new country is exciting, you might start to feel a little homesick. We recommend finding people that share your hobbies and interests to help you build a community familiar to you. For more than 40 years, Casa Linda has been home to many Europeans, Canadians and Americans. We facilitate events for all our owners to create opportunities for them to get to know each other such as live music, wine tasting, Super Bowl watch parties, 3-4 days trips around the Dominican Republic, Zuma classes, Yoga classes and more! We understand how difficult it can be to move away from family and friends, which is why we aim to facilitate many events throughout the year to create a cozy and familiar atmosphere.

5. How’s The Location?

Location is crucial when investing in the Dominican Republic. You must consider where the close markets and nearest hospitals are. If you’re moving there with your kids, are there schools nearby? How’s the transportation? Are there any facilities near your property?

Before signing any papers, you should familiarize yourself with the location and take the time to discover the amenities nearby. When partnering with Casa Linda, you have the opportunity to live the Dominican lifestyle before investing in a property! Our team is more than happy to show you around and help you discover the beauty of the DR! You can stay for a few days in one of our villas and experience the Dominican lifestyle for yourself!

6. What’s The Buying Process?

In any investment, transparency is key. Many investors avoid buying property in the Dominican Republic because they’re worried about the buying process since most of the legal paperwork is in Spanish. When investing in a property in the Dominican Republic with Casa Linda, we strongly believe in full transparency. Our buying process is straightforward and clear to ensure that you are not surprised by any hidden costs. Our team will help you every step of the way and provide you with guidance and assistance whenever you need it.

Invest in the Dominican Republic!

From finding the right lot to furnishing your home, Casa Linda Quality Communities is there to help you every step of the way. Contact our team today to start investing in the Dominican Republic, or read part 1 of our blog to learn more!

Things To Consider Before Buying Property In The Dominican Republic – Part 1

Your Perfect Villa

is waiting for you at casa linda

There’s nothing better than basking in the sun, enjoying a drink as you slowly doze off to the sound of the waves crashing into the sand, so why not do it every day?!

Rather than purchasing a property back home where you can only enjoy the outdoors three months a year, invest in a private villa in the Dominican Republic where you can enjoy fabulous weather all year long! Why limit yourself to 3 months of adventure when you can enjoy white-sand beaches, rainforests, mountains and savanna deserts throughout the year? Read on to learn more about Dominican Republic private villas

Where To Start?

Investing in property can sometimes be a complicated process, especially when you’re investing in a foreign country. At Casa Linda Quality Communities, we understand the obstacles that foreign buyers face, as we were once foreign buyers too! Our team is equipped to provide you with the right information you need to choose the right lot, understand the buying process and custom-build your villa! From navigating your foreign investment to furnishing your new villa – Casa Linda is with you every step of the way!

Live Like an Owner! 

Before investing in a private villa in the Dominican Republic, why not visit us and experience life in the DR in one of our rental villas? We are more than happy to take you on a tour around Sosua and Cabarete areas, where you can hit the beach, go out for groceries, or just walk around and discover the island! With Casa Linda, you can live like an owner! 

What is The Buying Process?

Casa Linda’s buying process is as follows: 

  1. Pick your villa plan.
  2. Choose the right lot for you.
  3. Receive the final approval for the villa plan
  4. Sign the contract of sale
  5. Casa Linda starts building! 
  6. If you’re interested, Casa Linda can introduce you to a decorator to start furnishing your private villa two months prior to completion.
  7. Move-in! 

Yes, the buying process is that simple! At Casa Linda, our aim is to ensure that the buying process is smooth and seamless from start to finish! 

How to Pay For Your Villa

Similar to many builders, we construct villas in stages, with payments allocated at different construction phases. At the beginning of the construction, 35% of the purchase price is paid to reserve the lot. After 3-4 weeks after the start of the construction (and depending upon the construction schedule), 30% of the purchase price is to be paid. The remaining amount is to be paid according to the construction schedule, and the final 10% is paid upon taking possession of the villa. You can also read more about our buying process here

Reasons Why Investing in Dominican Republic Real Estate is a Smart Move

Reasons Why Investing in Dominican Republic Real Estate is a Smart Move

Your Perfect Villa

is waiting for you at casa linda

Are you interested in investing in real estate? Below are the top 3 reasons why many homeowners have chosen to invest in the Dominican Republic!

1. Living in the Dominican Republic is More Affordable Than you Think! 

Potential homeowners looking to relocate to the Dominican Republic often worry about the finances of building a home and the expenses of living in the DR. When homeowners picture building a custom villa, they usually expect a high-priced property that is way over their initial budget.

Well, what if we told you that you could build a custom villa in the Dominican Republic with a private pool under 250,000 USD?

With Casa Linda Quality Communities, you can purchase Villa Sunset for under 240,00 USD, which includes the construction of the villa, the lot, landscaping, swimming pool and service building for pool storage and equipment! You can finally build and design a private luxury villa without breaking the bank!

Dominican Republic real estate is not the only affordable aspect; the cost of living is also much more affordable in comparison to North America. What you might feel like is a luxury back home is actually the norm in the Dominican Republic. You can go out for a meal any time of day for only 5 USD and enjoy an appetizer, a main course and a drink! Homeowners in the DR are living on a stable budget-friendly island and rarely worry about financial issues. If you’re looking to build an affordable luxury villa and live on a low-cost island with terrific weather all year round, the Dominican Republic is the perfect place for you!

2. Don’t Worry About Leaving Your Property Behind

While some homeowners enjoy staying in the Dominican Republic all year round, others prefer to stay during the winter months and leave in the summertime. If you’re a traveller at heart with an adventurous soul looking to spend your days travelling across the world, you can leave your home in good hands. Casa Linda’s lock up and leave service offers homeowners premier 24-hour gated security all year round. Whether you’re leaving your property for a few weeks or a few months, our well-trained guards patrol the property 24 hours a day to ensure that your property is monitored and secure.

3. Rent Out Your Property Whenever You’re Not Around

When purchasing a property with Casa Linda, you have the unique opportunity to rent out your villa whenever you’re not around! For owners looking to travel for a few months or even years, Casa Linda offers the option of working with a Rental Host to manage your property’s rental. The Rental Host will not only find a trustworthy rental for your property, but they also offer personalized services to the renters, pay immediate attention to any problems on the property and direct supervision of staff responsible for your property. The Rental Host markets your villa on the majority of travel sites like Expedia, Booking.com, Airbnb, etc., and their own websites. Assisted by a Casa Linda employee liaison, Rental Hosts work closely with the accounting and administration department to ensure that the finances and administration of your property are on track. With Casa Linda’s rental service, you can leave your property in safe hands and rest assured that your villa expenses are covered when you travel!
