If you Google ‘Dominican Republic property’ you’ll find that the list of selling sites is practically unending.
These are some of the ones worth looking at:
- www.juanperdomo.com - has a good selection of mid-range properties on offer.
- www.indominicana.com - has a searchable database of properties for a range of budgets
Make sure you’re prepared to tackle the market before you begin your house hunt - do some research on what you can get for your cash, give yourself a budget, and look out for any renovation work that needs doing.
After you’ve done this, it’s worth contacting estate agents in the Dominican Republic and setting up a few viewings. It’s essential you see the property before buying, as scams can and do occur. If the estate agent recommends a lawyer, make sure they are charging a reasonable amount for their services. The more Spanish you can speak, the easier this process will be as non-Spanish speakers can sometimes be charged higher rates. If you do speak some Spanish, show it off as much as possible.
