Real Estate in Bahia Investors Guide

Investor's Guide

Introduction

Brasil is Hot.

After decades of being brushed off as the eternal country of the future never able to live up to its promise, Brasil´s time has finally seem come.

Inflation and interest rates –although still high- are relatively stable, and economic growth continues to be fueled by the large internal market. The re-election of the socialist government, generally considered ‘market unfriendly’, has had at least two positive side effects with regards to the real estate market. First, a lack of confidence has weakened the Real, Brazil’s local currency, making it cheaper than ever for foreign investors to buy Brazilian properties. And secondly, Real estate is standing out, more than ever, as a secure investment in an unsecure environment.

Add to this Brasil´s perfect climate, it´s rich culture, it´s vast resources, the warmth and hospitality of it´s people and a marvellous, diverse country with thousands of kilometers of paradise beaches, and you have the perfect recipe for a lasting Real Estate Boom. And that is exactly what is happening.

So if ever there was a time to invest in Brasil, it is now.
