Do I need to have residency status in order to own a home?

No. Anyone can buy and own and home in the Dominican Republic. This is a site which will explain what is required for a residency. Dominican law permits you to apply for provisional residency immediately after arriving to the country. After 2 years, you can apply for permanent residency. The DR allows citizens from most countries to enter the country on a tourist visa. Applying for residency is a relatively easy and inexpensive process.
