Expats Investing In Rental Properties In Cabrera Dominican Republic

Cabrera Construction Techniques

Cabrera Construction Techniques

Many expats need or want a way to supplement their monthly income.  One popular way to do that is to own rental homes or perhaps a small bed and breakfast.  In this video interview we tour several small construction projects where expats have either built new or rehabbed in-town properties for rentals and part time vacation properties.

With new construction costs coming in around $68 per square foot for concrete, low maintenance homes, rental is still a viable option to supplement monthly income.  There is a demand for quality smaller properties and the return on investment can be attractive.  In this little video we will tour a few simple completed homes and visit an active duplex construction project.

Each of these homes were built by Acosta Construction, a local contractor with extensive connections in the community and high construction standards.  Acosta has built everything from these smaller rental homes to some of the larger mini-mansions in the area.

Watch closely as we visit the new duplex construction project in the town of Cabrera.  Acosta completely rehabbed an existing shell of a home and ended up with a very attractive two story reminiscent of New Orleans or the Florida Keys.


Come down and take a look at some of the rental home investment opportunities.

For now, it’s Barry in DR.
