Property Investors Go Nuts About Brazil

January 28, 2009Article by Ray Withers

Brazil is a real estate investment hotspot with simmering deals just waiting for property professionals. Everything about Brazil comes in superlatives – the world’s fifth largest country, with Sao Paulo, the world’s fourth largest city, the Amazon, the world’s longest river and the world’s best footballers who have won the World Cup more than any other country.

The real attraction for Brazil real estate investors is 7,000 kilometres of sandy, palm-fringed beaches, an average daily temperature of 28 Centigrade in the northeast and little if any development along most of the coast. Brazil is a new frontier for tourism – as the nearest landing site from Europe, flying time from Europe is about the same as to Florida. The cost of living is cheaper than the US and the people welcoming and friendly. By cheaper, the cost of living is about a fifth of that in Britain.

Brazil property investors looking for a second homer or holiday letting should look around the city of Natal. is a project designed by world-renowned architect, David Bastos. The superb condos and villas offer bright and spacious living. The resort is set in 20 acres of tropical d gardens with ocean. The resort has lots of sporting and spa facilities. The beachfront resort is 25 minutes drive north of Natal and the city’s international airport – destined to be the fourth largest in the world on completion. From the resort, another 10 minute drive north ends at Maracajau – an internationally acclaimed diving centre. Commanding a leading position in Natal’s rapidly expanding tourism market and with the appointment of an Internationally recognised, super luxury resort operator Natal Ocean Club is set to generate gross yields of 15%.

All of the luxurious properties at Natal Ocean Club are delivered with the highest standard designer fittings and furnishings, providing some of the most luxurious investment property in Brazil.
