Property purchase specifically as an investment vehicle is a popular option amongst those aiming to capitalise on the strong growth potential of property in the Dominican Republic. The favoured form of real estate investment consists of an off-plan purchase for sale prior to project completion. Alternatively, a buy-to-let situation in tourist resorts of the Dominican Republic can provide reliable rental income from the property, along with substantial capital appreciation.

Independent worldwide investment experts are unanimous in their claims that real estate in the Dominican Republic is a potentially lucrative market. With capital growth coming in at 20-30% p.a. in prime locations, investors are encouraged by the island’s economic climate. The tourist infrastructure is currently undergoing major upheaval to bring it into line with other Caribbean hotspots, while the country’s economic strategy promises significant growth for the foreseeable future. While The Dominican is experiencing unprecedented growth, investors are urged to catch this steady and promising market now, while prices remain lower than on other Caribbean islands and high returns on investment are inevitable.
