Buyer/Owner Services

The most important thing we do.

It’s all about you.

We are here to help with service, knowledge, experience & friendship.  We know that considering buying foreign property can be an intimidating, even frightening experience.  Most people have no idea where to even start the process or who to trust.  How does it all work? What are the legal ins and outs? Will my title be owned by me and secure? How stable is the government? How much are taxes?  What happens after I buy?

 We know these questions and fears well.  We were once first time DR buyers too – with all the same questions.  We work with potential buyers everyday.  We take time to ensure buyers understand the buying process; they make the right choices for both short and long term goals; and become part of our great community, full or part time.

 At DR Properties, we are all Canadians (well, there is one German), and we understand and speak the language of the Canadian and American buyer. We know how to explain and relate Dominican real estate structure and information in ways that make sense.

Who Are Our Buyers?

Our company caters specifically to North American buyers. Most of our clients fit into the following criteria and personal situation:

 

  1. Are looking toward retirement and still working:
    • Wanting to purchase in the DR to get into the marketplace, but likely won’t live here, full or part time, until retirement
    • Want to use the property they buy for 2-weeks to 6-months per year
    • Would like to have the property generate income, or at least pay for itself, in the periods when they are not in residence (rental)
  2. Are retiring in the next few years or already retired. 
    • May want to make the DR their permanent residence or go back and forth to their home country.
    • Would like the property cared for in their absence (bill payment, cleaning, maintenance, gardening, etc.)
  3. Entrepreneurs who will work in the DR remotely and live here full time

The Property Matters

DR Properties does not sell every property, or take on every listing. We are very specific about what we sell, it must meet the critera that 90% of our buyers are looking for:

  • Be in a gated community with true 24-hour security.
  • Be lock-up-and-leave. When the owner locks the door and goes to the airport, they must know that their property is in good hands.  This can be a onsite service or be handled through reputable management companies.
  • Developers must have sound financial situation and reputation.
  • Have proper titles in place

If the property does not meet this criteria, then we don’t sell it.
