The Dominican Republic was in the vice-like grip of political dictators throughout the better part of the 1900's. Emerging from this twilight world in the final decades of the last century was, however, far from plain sailing. Political mismanagement and corruption drove the country to the brink of bankruptcy, and created a scenario in which, for the majority of ordinary Dominicans, life was a constant toil against the rigours of poverty. Sadly, this is still the case for many, but there are sure signs that things are changing for the better.

With the dawning of the 21st century the Dominican Republic has begun to experience the beginning of a renaissance. A more socially responsible political regime is shepherding the country towards a brighter and more stable future. Although this has not immediately resolved the issues of poverty – and adjustments in the value of the local currency have had inevitably painful impacts on some parts of Dominican society – it is now clear that the path being steered by current 'political managers' is starting to reap the rewards that come with gaining the confidence of global investors.

The last few years have see the so-called 'best-kept-secret' of the Caribbean beginning to shrug off its Cinderella-image. The Dominican Republic is emerging as one of the strongest real estate markets in the region. This is in no little part due to the fact that, as the second largest Caribbean country, with a plethora of natural bounties including huge areas of natural and undeveloped landscapes, blessed with archetypal Caribbean vistas, investors are racing to stake their claim whilst land and real estate prices are still much lower than the DR's smaller and more developed Caribbean cousins.

Even in th current economy 2009 promises to be the Dominican Republic another good year, as far as real estate goes. For those seeking genuinely excellent value with respect to purchasing their own place in the sun – a holiday apartment, a retirement villa or simply a shrewd investment – the Dominican Republic real estate market offers something for everyone and there is never a beter time to buy then when others are reticent.
