Not All Paradises Are Created Equal
If you’re early into the research phase of buying a home abroad, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the many choices available. While each tropical destination has its own unique perks and magical locations to explore, few offer the multitude of benefits that the Dominican Republic gives to homeowners. In addition to incredible scenery, an unbeatable climate, and more, you’ll also find one of the stablest governments and economies in Latin America, as well as a solid infrastructure that makes it easy to access daily essentials like high-speed internet, phone lines, cable television and more. Local shopping centres also feature many of the most popular brands found across North America and Europe, meaning you’ll never have to go without the creature comforts you’ve come to love.
One of the main deciding factors that helps many couples settle on the Dominican Republic is the exceptional quality of medical care available. With world-class facilities and doctors readily available along with service in English easily accessible, residents can rest easy that their needs will always be met safely and proficiently.
Buying Property DR
Purchasing a home in the Dominican Republic is a relatively easy process for foreign nationals due to the government’s openness to external buyers. Financing is straightforward when working with international banks, and typically a minimum deposit of 30% or more is required to begin moving forward in the process. Mortgage terms in the DR last for 20 years and have higher lending rates (as of 2019, rates fluctuated between 4% to 7%) than the US or Canada, as well as a verification process that can be a little tricky to navigate at first. While you will typically need to be present for the signing of all documents in the DR, with the assistance of a skilled legal team you may be able to assign someone Power of Attorney if necessary.
For over 40 years, Casa Linda has partnered with buyers from all over the world to make the purchasing process easy and stress-free. Our team is happy to work alongside you to navigate every aspect and ensure your move to paradise is as smooth as possible. Our resources are at your disposal and our experts are always here to help!
