Well, the person that started the thread is buying prime real state by the beach. Regardless of what happens in DR, it is still an island. If you want to move there for to be in the tropics, the beach will always be there and it will always be a prime location. I hear that the lots near the beach are very hard to get and very expensive. So if you have the chance to get into it now, then do it. If push comes to shove, you can always sell.Danny W said:I understand that real estate is the best place to have your money in the DR, and I gather that prices are at their peak. But I wonder whether all the bad publicity is scaring away some potential international buyers. Just as the poster was worried about jumping in, won't this sentiment eventually have an effect on the market? - D
X, just wondering, last I read you had no problem getting gas for the generator, you just needed to talk to the manager at the Texaco to get the cans filled right? Has something changed?XanaduRanch said:There is no propane.There is no gasoline. There is no diesel. No Diesel to run my gnereator, which I need to run because there is no electricity. Everything from building materials to corn flakes are up nearly 300% in the last year.
How do I live? And I actually have money! The government is blocking people who have products, gasoline,propane, etc, from selling them bercause the lambones who rely on government subsidized wholesalers, don't. And they don't just because the 'government' won't pay it's bills for products purchased.
It's not hype. This place is going to go BOOM! very quickly unless the government gets out of the marketplace. Hopefully that will before I can't find any gaoline to go buy milk,pampers, and food for the children.

Well, yes and no. Greg got our tank filled, 230 gallons a few nights ago. But he doesn't have any either. He's got to follow the same quotas as the stations getting fuel from the government refinery. He'll get something in at 8:00AM and it's gone by 8:00PM. So the whole thing is still a big hassle here.ltsnyder said:X, just wondering, last I read you had no problem getting gas for the generator, you just needed to talk to the manager at the Texaco to get the cans filled right?
