Housing Costs in the Dominican Republic
"The monthly cost of rent is $550.00 which includes water, gas for cooking, internet and cable tv, with a 30 year old tv supplied by the landlord. I must pay for electric $30.00 a month unless I use the air conditioner which is also very old and will raise my electric bill to over $100.00 a month. There are ceiling fans in every room. i use them in lieu of the air conditioner. I have a land line home phone from Claro for $30.00 a month for 400 minutes. I just signed up for a bundle package of Phone/cable/internet with Claro for $75.00 a month,"
remarked another expat in Santo Domingo.
"Lower. To rent a standard 3 bedroom house in an expat area is around 600-1500 US$ a month. If you live in a gated community it is more. A similar property in a purely Dominican town or village is around 200 US$ a month,"
explained one expat living in Santo Domingo.
"Much lower. My two bedroom apartment with balconies and maid's room is $600 a month. To buy apartments here cost around $150k,"
said another expat in Santo Domingo.
