"The rise in housing prices is not going to break, but at least it will look more dignified. Building manager and analysts say housing prices in major capitals of the country has reached a level compatible with the new standards Brazilian economy.
The estimate for 2012 is that, instead of using 27% as in 2011, the average price of homes rise at a rate slightly above inflation, around 10% per year in cities like Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Porto Alegre. In others, like Rio de Janeiro, Recife and Vitória, the increase is stronger then."
"The building boom in Brazil is now the biggest news in the real estate world and the country in 2012 will become the second most attractive place for foreign investors, surpassing China and throughout Europe. A survey published yesterday by the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (Afire, acronym in English), St. Paul also pointed out as the fourth most attractive city for investments in real estate among the major international metropolises in the year.
The growth of the economy, sporting events and legal safeguards are the factors that transformed the country and the city in one of the priorities of investors.
Brazil is now considered a much safer place to invest and a place to get a good capital appreciation," said the CEO of the organization, James Fetgatter. To conduct the survey, the association consulted investors with a portfolio totaling $ 874 billion worldwide.
The most sought after real estate to live in Sao Paulo are the two bedroom apartments. Buy them, however, is increasingly hard on the pocket: the past two years prices have gone up by 175%, according to a survey done by the property manager Lello.
The research took into account two bedroom apartments, between 50 and 100 square feet in buildings with more than five years of existence and recreation area, located in the regions of Partridges, Gardens, Santana, Bristol and Birmingham. The properties were sold in 2009, returned to the inventory manager and was resold in 2011.
I could tell in real estate investing is always a choice and that Brazil is becoming an increasingly safer time to make these investments. If you plan to invest but do not want to pay that much, a good solution is to invest in property in the ABC, the metropolitan area of São Paulo, which has a value per square meter lower than the capital, and has easy access to both capital and the coast, and a good infrastructure, good schools, shops, shopping malls and supermarkets.
The regions most valued when buying property in the ABC are close to the centers, neighborhoods finest, as the Jardim São Caetano, near the new Park Shopping Sao Caetano, and also the Jardim Santo Andre, near the center and filled with leisure facilities, restaurants, shopping, etc..
