Getting a mortgage in Dominican Republic
Although the majority of our clients are usually cash buyers, or choose to finance the purchase of their Punta Cana home through or equity release of their property back home, currently around 15% prefer to opt for a Dominican mortgage instead.

Mortgages in Dominican Republic are considerably easier to obtain nowadays, with some banks offering Second Home Loans programs to residents of Canada, United Kingdom and United States- including Puerto Rico.

Even so, lending criteria are still tighter than it once was. So you need to have your own finances in order – transparent, accurate, up-to-date and solvent obviously – it is also vital to seek expert, independent advice. And while the majority of loans granted these days are a fixed rate for one year, Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate can help you to locate a financial advisor who will work with your interests at heart, in order to help track down a mortgage or financing option that best suits your financial situation.
