Yes, we have 2 financing options.

The first one (and probably the best option) is with Scotiabank here in DR. As a broker, I am in direct contact with the financing department. They work fast and are experienced in providing mortgages/financing.

Scotiabank is offering loans in us dollars with absolutely the best conditions. To buy a property here in the DR or build a property.

The loans are perfect for US and Canadian citizens. European citizens is not possible.

Of course, you need to provide proof of income documentation, give the authorization to do a credit check, and some more documents and appraisals from the property that you want to buy.

How long does this take:

  • in general your pre aproval goes fast, 1 till 2 weeks
  • final aproval takes 4 weeks more. So in fact in 6 weeks or less it is done.
