Why Invest In Brazil Property?

March 23, 2009Article by Ray Withers

Brazil is one of the powerhouses of the world and supports a broad and diverse economy that gives property investors lots of options.

The two drivers behind Brazil’s success are industry and tourism. Even in the global downturn, Brazil is reckoned to still end the year with a growing economy, even though growth may not be as startling as in previous years. Tourists are flooding to Brazil. All the factors that make tourism succeed are in place – stunning natural beauty, year-round sunshine and a low, low cost of living.

Brazil investment property ticks all the boxes with buy-to-let landlords, second homers, resort investors and people looking to retire.

If you are looking for Brazil buy-to-let property , Sao Paulo is one of the largest and fastest growing cities in the world with a constant demand for accommodation from young professionals moving to the ‘bright lights’ for work.

Second homers and resort investors should look to the city of Natal, as the government ploughs billions of dollars of investment in to the area to lay down infrastructure for tourism – including a huge new airport, new roads and bridges. Natal is the same flying time from London as Miami and the nearest part of Brazil to Europe.

For typical examples of Brazilian property, look at two deals consultants Property Frontiers are offering.
