Brazil started 2011 with massive foreign capital investments inflows
The inflow of us dollars to Brazil so far this year (Jan-March 5) marks a surplus of usd 24.3 billion over outflows, which helped to further appreciate the Brazilian Real, according to the latest figures released by the Central Bank.
This is the result of financial operations mainly by Brazilian corporations’ overseas issues and long term foreign investors. In fact, property investors from around the world are flocking to Brazilian shores with a view to snapping up real estate, in anticipation of future capital growth.
The Brazilian property market has got a lot going for it. The country is attracting a lot of inward investment, has one of the world’s fastest growing economies, a rapidly emerging mortgage market, a general shortage of quality homes, and has been selected to host the 2014 football World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games. This will lead to the construction of new and improved infrastructures and homes across Brazil.
Compared to many other destinations, Brazil is still relatively under explored in terms of its real estate potential – which creates excellent opportunities for higher returns on real estate investments.
The country has recently experienced a big boost in its popularity abroad, helped by its robust economic performance and a more active role in the international arena. Its image is frequently associated with a casual and healthy lifestyle, friendly people, and a beautiful combination of rainforest, mountains and sea.
As a consequence, tourism inflows have increased dramatically over the past few years and international property investors are quickly realizing the huge gains that can be made in this fast growing emerging market.
At the centre of the new Brazilian tourism push, the coastline of the north-east boasts a host of established resorts that already attract Brazilians in holiday mood, alongside greenfield sites that will soon be new-build homes. This region, made up of nine states, is currently leading the charge for international property growth, with a spurt of new developments and some heavy marketing drawing a new generation of property investors.
