About 60% of real estate buyers in the Dominican Republic want to profit from it. The most common way to make money in real estate is to rent it while you are away / on holiday or sell it in a few years. There are also people who want to set up business in a country called “tax heaven.”
Buyers of rental business are now interested not only in residential, but also in commercial properties: stores, hotels, gas stations, restaurants in the tourist area.
The reason for the growing demand (even in the pandemic) is the balance of cost, quality, year-round tourist flow and investment attractiveness, regular flights, a loyal policy on the part of the state to do business and a simplified process of obtaining a residence permit for property owners.
