When you buy a property in the Dominican, you'll be buying a lot of land, and building a home. These are two separate transactions.
The land is yours free and clear and will be titled in your name, and registered with the local and national authorities.
Land in a gated community will cost around USD $55/square meter, or approximately USD $5.10/square foot.
To put in perspective, you can obtain a lot that is 909 square meters for $50,000. That's 9780 square feet.
