Work From Home: Dominican Republic Edition

Work From Home: Dominican Republic Edition

Your Perfect Villa

is waiting for you at casa linda

Life during the lockdown opened many opportunities for employees to work from home. Individuals have gotten accustomed to having more flexibility in their schedules as their day-to-day life became easier to manage when working from home. In fact, many have chosen to continue working from home over working in the office post-lockdown as they found that their stress levels have decreased. While some found comfort in working at home in their city, others sought out more adventurous places to keep their days stimulated and fun! Read on to learn more about upgrading your work-from-home office to an exciting work-from-home environment! 

Explore The World

Why work in a small home office when you can enjoy your morning on a luxurious balcony, basking in the sun with a fresh cup of coffee as your office overlooks a beautiful view? Working from home does not have to be constraining; you have the opportunity to explore the world while you’re still at work! You have the option of going for a quick swim in the ocean right after work or even heading over to the mountains during the weekend! If you’re tired of a tight office space and looking for an expansion, the Dominican Republic is the place for you and here’s why:

1. Suitable Time Difference

Before deciding on working from home in another country, you must first consider the time difference. While there are many countries that offer fantastic weather, beautiful scenery and many adventures, they might be on the other side of the world! Granted, you can work from anywhere in the world, but if you’re in a completely opposite time zone, you might end up working all night and sleeping all day. You won’t get to enjoy your days and might even suffer from extreme sleep deprivation throughout your stay.

With that said, not all tropical countries are far from North America. You can work from home in the Dominican Republic and only experience a 3-4 hour time difference! You can easily integrate your working hours throughout the day in the Dominican Republic without experiencing a reversed sleep schedule.

2. Simple Visa/Permit Process

Unlike other countries, the visa and permit process is quite simple in the Dominican Republic. There are currently three types of visas you can apply to if you’re planning to work from home in the Dominican Republic: entry for 60 days, multiple entries for one year (max. two consecutive months at a time) or a full business visa that is issued for up to one year.

The process of getting a visa is straightforward, regardless of how long you plan to work from home in the Dominican Republic. If you’re looking to work from home in the Dominican Republic for more than two months, you will need to apply for a temporary residency permit for work purposes. Similar to the visa process, residency permits are also relatively easy to obtain and allow you to have the same rights as a legal Dominican Republic citizen under the Labor Code. 

3. Beautiful Tropical Weather All Year Round

If you’re working in North America, you probably understand how unforgiving cold winter months can be. Whether you’re working from home or going into the office, you won’t be able to avoid the chilly mornings or the frosty nights. Wouldn’t you rather wake up to the sun rays illuminating your window and enjoy the cool tropical breeze as you grab your morning coffee on the terrace?

With beautiful sunny weather all year round in the Dominican Republic, you can enjoy more than 12 hours of sunlight every day! With the DR’s stunning topography, beautiful beaches and large mountains, you’ll enjoy working there no matter where you are! Whether you’re staying at a hotel, Airbnb or in your personal luxury villa, you will be living in paradise!

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!

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
