News on Buying Property in Brazil

Aug 12, 2008
Brazil is seeing a number of new off-plan developments and infrastructure plans that are driving international investment. Turtle Bay Beach and Golf Resort is one of the many new developments that is set to draw plenty of international and Brazilian property buyers to this area of northeast Brazil.

This particular development offers a choice of 3 villa types, each of which will consist of 3 varying options dependent on the size of the plot and the orientation.

The plots are situated throughout the property with differing views and back-ground settings. There are the beachfront properties and plots which include a golf course and views which overlook lagoons and the equestrian centre. Each home is due to be fully equipped with tantalising terraces and lush gardens for 24-hour enjoyment of this awe-inspiring area.

The Discovery Coast, yet another popular environment is situated along 90km of seafront in Bahia. Beginning to the north of Porto Seguro and running up toward the north of Belmonte, you will find this little 'utopian' development.

The town of Belmonte has a population of 22,000 inhabitants and is about 45 km north of Porto Seguro. Not unfamiliar to eco travelers, this destination (and it's government) seeks to retain the natural surroundings and preserve the area, limiting developments to specifically designated areas - thus keeping damage to the environment to a minimum. Porto Seguro currently has a small international airport and is developing plans for a major new airport.

In light of all of the above, it is transparent as to why the North-East region of Brazil continues to capture the imagination of international property investors.

Supporting this viewpoint is the claim made by many property analysts stating: "It is no surprise this is happening as returns on land are generally equal to - or higher than - returns on bricks and mortar and come with a much lower entry level price. Indeed, land prices in Natal are forecast to go up by 15%-25% per annum based on current market trends."

Another interesting fact about Brazil, and its property sector, is the fact that according to many sources that "There is plenty of cheap land available in Brazil, some in the middle of nowhere that is being marketed as a good investment. Several of these plots are classed as rustic land (not buildable at present) and consequently do not have utilities (power and water) and infrastructure (roads)."

Important to bear in mind here is that "Purchases in such land should be considered as high risk and purely speculative on the basis that one day they might get urbanised and the promoter might actually implement the infrastructure required."

As one researches more about Brazil, is becomes clear that the actual cost of such land is actually quite inexpensive, "which is why the land is marketed cheaply by European standards, even with the very healthy margins build into the sales price."

As is apparent in all property sectors, and perhaps should be common knowledge, location, location, location! Perfectly worded by a popular property portal, "The location of plots and property is critical to maximising the investment potential. All regions and locations in North East Brazil are clearly not the same and nor is their investment potential. Just because something is cheap doesn't mean it is a good investment or good value for money. It can a big risk to buy cheap land site unseen based on price alone, as the likelihood is it will always remain just that - cheap land. "

Needless to say, intelligent investors know that you get what you pay for and that a prime location is critical and imperative to an investment's potential.

According to another popular news hub, "Infrastructure services such as power and water have already been installed and the roads will be complete within the next three-six months."

Clearly a positive turn of events, when one considers the ripple effects this will have on all fronts - a positive determinant indeed when trying to determine which destination would be best to invest in.
