“Building a home in the Dominican Republic?” I can still hear the dubious questions ringing in my ears. “From Toronto?” Even close friends looked at me a little quizzically.  I’d heard many nightmare stories from friends who’d tried to build a home in Canada, let alone build one in the Dominican Republic from thousands of miles away?  It can turn out to be one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences of your life when you can rely on a trusted local partner.

Most frequent question we receive; “what does it cost to build a home in the Caribbean.”  When buying a car, one can spend $20.000 on a VW Golf or one can buy a Mercedes Benz way over $100.000. Still both are cars. The same is with building your home.

True cost of constructing a home is determined by a multitude of factors. Before you are able to consider the actual cost of the house that you want to build it is best to know the approximate price of the sort of home that you have in mind. This enables you to know the size of house you can afford.

The basic cost per sq foot for home construction is aproximately $60 ($650/m2), providing that the structure have simple foundations and it’s not a complex design.

The average  construction cost in the Dominican Republic are between $70 and $80 per sq/ft.  ($750 – $850 USD per M2).

High quality construction cost start at about $86 per sq/ft ($925 USD per m2). Pool, landscaping, or extras like a designer kitchen, wood windows, exclusive tiling and bathroom fixtures not included.  Costs can quickly rise to $100 per sq/ft ($1100 per m2) or more for a top notch villa.

The costs of similarly sized buildings can also vary considerably due to the shape of the building, the number of corners or offsets in the design plans, the type of foundation and required local footing depth, the pitch of the roof, and many other design characteristics that are not directly related to the size of the building.

Most expensive in a house are the kitchen and bathrooms, the number of windows, the size and quality of fixtures and fittings also affects price. The cost per square foot is often higher for a smaller house than that of a larger one.  

Site preparation can have an big impact on the construction cost. Building on a flat plot of land will usually cost less than on a hill or slope, where you have to excavate and dispose more soil or rocks.
