Thanks for the replies. Ya, I agree, i don't wan to rent it out.

Here in Haiti, it's common to buy a property - house and land, and let someone live there for free to watch over the place and maintain it. They basically keep the place running. The folks I know who do this are Haitian/American. They don't have any problems because for a local to have a free place to live, is a gift of gold. Especially, a nice house and not the shack they are used to living in. Do you think a deal could be struck in DomRep the same?

Thinking outside the box.
