The Dominican Republic boasts some of the cheapest Caribbean Real Estate. I seriously doubt that it will remain that way for long though. You see, more and more people are starting to discover that the Dominican Republic is not only a fantastic place to live, but also a fantastic place to invest in property. On this page I want to take a little look at the things that prospective real estate investors in this area may want to think about when choosing to invest.
Perhaps the main choice that you are going to need to make is whether you want to invest in commercial or residential property. Most people generally go for the latter (you will see why soon). However, you should not pass up the opportunity of investing in Commercial Real Estate in the Dominican Republic. If you choose the right property in the right location then you should be able to make a decent amount of money on it. In fact, it is likely that you will be able to make some good rental income over the years as the Dominican Republic becomes more popular as a tourist destination. You will find that there are people itching to get inside of that commercial property.
As mentioned previously though, most people opt for residential property. The main reason behind this is that if they can’t shift it quickly then they are always going to have somewhere to live. In my mind there are three different ways in which you can generate some income from the affordable Caribbean Real Estate that you have purchased:
• The Dominican Republic is huge as a tourist destination at the moment. In fact, you will be surprised at the numbers flocking here from all over the world. This is of course a good way to make money for the property owner. If you purchase one of the many Dominican Republic villas for sale you should be able to make a fairly stable income from it. Of course there will times throughout the year where you will struggle to fill up the property, but the prices that you charge at other times will more than make up for this.
It is worth noting that if you want to purchase a property for investment in this manner then you are going to want to ensure that it is as close to the main tourist areas as it possibly can be. This way you will be able to command a slightly higher amount of money. You will not make as much money as some of the other investment options and it will require a bit of work to market the property correctly. However, at least you have somewhere nice to stay if you want to head to the island!
• The second method is to just rent it out to residents. After all, there are plenty of people within the Dominican Republic looking for somewhere to live. You should be able to make a nice profit via this method….even if you have a mortgage in place. The only trouble with this method is that if you do not live on the island then it can be very difficult to find prospective tenants for your property and it is even harder to deal with any issues that they throw up!
• The final option is to develop the property a little and then sell it on. As the Dominican Republic seems to be getting more popular by the day you should be able to make a nice income quite quickly. However you need to be aware that you will not have a residual income. It is just a quick amount of cash and then that’s it. I tend to favour renting out, but you can choose whichever option you wish.
