    Usually unless you are buying a large piece, building lots are called solares and typical building lot is between 200 to 500 sq meters. Usually the farther from a town...etc the cheaper. If in a fenced development with paved streets the price jumps considerably. It is better to have local enquire about prices as if they were buying or looking for a relative.

    Appreciate any advice/comments
    It all depends on the amount of Meters or lot size. I know of someone selling for a very good price on that area. send me a PM if you are interested on more information. I live close by.

    SUpply and demand !
    You want it, they got it.... value is what the owner thinks it is worth.
    Yes get a Dominican to do the work for you.
    That Gringo appearance causes the cash bell to ring high.

    More importantly can they produce a Dislinde Title?
    Any other title is useless to foreigners.

    I had a guy swear on ''a stack of bibles''(metaphorically speaking) that the D-Title was is process.... my Lawyer found out differently. And he was a Canadian! Oh my goodness!
    But on the bright side; from reading all the posts on this site I truly do learn a lot more than I would otherwise.

    Anybody with wits - even a half-wit - who owns property should be getting the 'D'

    No Go , Joe --- without it

    I agree, but it's very aggravating and takes forever "sometimes". We own two connected parcels, that we bought separately. They were both part of a huge parcel that one family originally owned, now it's owned by about 5-6 of the children, some of whom have died and the others are ancient. Next door neighbor is 100. We bought it all in the late 70s, early 80s.

    The first parcel has the house, well, etc., on it. We started the deslinde process in Feb 2015 on that parcel. As of today, we still don't have it. We don't anticipate problems, in fact we've been told it was approved, but it drags on and on.

    The second parcel will be the problem, it's supposed to have 9 tareas, but when it was surveyed it's actually 8. We told them to title it as 8, and they said 'no, we have to find the other tarea'. The property is fenced, can you just SEE us trying to convince a Dominican neighbor that they have one of our tareas???

    Long story short... 1. Do NOT buy a property without a deslinde. And, 2. If you think you're going to sell your property within the next 5 years, start your deslinde NOW.

    Good advice

    My most recent purchase looked like all one neat parcel.... Nope

    4-5 smaller ones , all needing D.
    Done one by one and finished.

    I slowed my payments to match the legal process.... kept the seller involved
