Your Perfect Villa
is waiting for you at casa linda
It’s normal for buyers to feel overwhelmed when purchasing a private villa from a real estate company in a country they’re unfamiliar with. Many hidden costs might arise during the buying process, which could make buyers feel confused and stressed. With that said, reputable real estate companies should provide you with a breakdown of all the costs that could come up during your buying process.
At Casa Linda Quality Communities, we are always eager to provide all our homeowners with a list of costs they might come across during their buying process. We understand how difficult it might be to make a costly decision in a foreign country, which is why we have compiled a list of everything you need to know about the additional costs you could face when buying and constructing properties with Casa Linda.
1. Monthly Fees for Casa Linda Quality Communities
Every property manager will have a monthly fee that covers the maintenance and security of the property. Property owners at Casa Linda usually pay a monthly fee of $260 – $340 USD, depending on the size of their lot. This fee includes many services such as:
- Maintenance of Common areas
- Maintenance of Outdoor Lighting
- Office Services
- Garbage Collection
- Shuttle Bus Services
- Owner Liaison Staff Member
The monthly fees are put in place to maintain the security and the cleanliness of the common areas in Casa Linda and offer property owners the opportunity to lock up and leave their property without worrying about any safety issues.
2. Cost of Furnishing
When moving to the Dominican Republic, buyers want to bring parts of their home to their new luxury villa, whether that might be adding similar furniture or purchasing nostalgic memorabilia. Depending on your personal taste and style, the cost of decorating and furnishing your villa will probably fluctuate drastically. Some homeowners aren’t necessarily sure how they would like to furnish their villa or where to find the pieces they have in mind, but don’t worry! Casa Linda is happy to recommend professional decorators for buyers who are unsure of how to furnish their new homes. We always advise our clients to be prepared to pay around 10-15% of the villa cost towards fully furnishing their home, including:
- Pool Equipment
- Window Coverings
- Electronics, etc.
3. Maintenance Fees
Homeowners can request housekeeping, gardening and pool maintenance throughout the year for a monthly fee. Depending on the size of your villa, yard and pool, the prices will vary accordingly. At Casa Linda Quality Communities, we are happy to provide all our homeowners with a complete outline of the costs for any services, including housekeeping, gardening and pool maintenance. We work closely with our homeowners to ensure transparency with all our maintenance fees.
