While most of the world is seeing a recession in nearly every aspect of their economies, the Dominican Republic is thriving and has not seen the GDP decrease in any quarter presenting a remarkably stable economy. This is clearly visible at Balcones Del AtlÃ¡ntico, since 90% of their first phase units are sold. Though the second phase has not yet been launched, 15% of the units have already been sold. Regarding the overwhelming response theyâve seen, Bisono stated âWe have seen a great diversity of interested investors, drawing attention on an international scale. What is so great about Balcones Del AtlÃ¡ntico is that we offer something for everyone. Whether youâre a family looking for a peaceful retreat with lots of excursions for all ages or a newlywed couple looking for a romantic escape, we have it allâ concluded Bisono.
