Is Real Estate In Bahia A Worthwhile Investment?


Is Real Estate In Bahia A Worthwhile Investment?

If the test of economic resilience was the recent slowdown, the entire Northeast region of Brazil, especially Bahia, has reasserted its strength. Prices of properties in fast growing economies like Brazil with a strong local demand for housing usually go up in the long run. This is very different from the situation in more developed countries where speculation plays a larger role in the market and makes prices of real estate unpredictable.

Conditions for real estate investment in Bahia were always good, but with more people seeing the benefits of investing in the region, the demand is going up.

What Makes Bahia An Attractive Real Estate Investment Destination?

Bahia has everything that makes it a great place to settle down and has plenty of natural and historical attractions to bring in the tourists. It is also one of the largest states in the country and makes a significant contribution to the GDP.

With its long coastline (about 1200 km) dotted with beaches and covered with tropical vegetation and its comfortable temperatures, which average close to 27degrees, Bahia is the right destination for both domestic and international tourists as far as natural beauty and climate are concerned. Add to that the rich and diverse culture, historical attractions and good infrastructure and you have all the ingredients for a booming tourism industry.

Salvador, the capital of the state, is well connected by air with major hubs in Europe and America. Air travel is possible even to remote places thanks to a number of domestic airports within Bahia. These airports give the required connectivity to other major cities of Brazil. The airports at Rio and Sao Paulo in the south are also popular transit points for international tourists visiting the region.

Cities and towns of Bahia, especially Salvador, Porto Seguro and nearby areas, figure prominently on the tourist map for both domestic as well as international tourists. In fact, the state attracts more tourists than other neighboring states combined. Although climate and tourism are Bahia's strong points, there are other factors, which are also driving the demand for real estate.

Demand for real estate in Bahia comes from the local people, buyers from other parts of the country and foreigners. This ensures equal and strong growth in all segments of the real estate market. This demand is maintained thanks to the strong economic growth of the region and the country as a whole. With Salvador playing host to two major world sporting events, the Football World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, investment and infrastructure development has got a further boost.

The major tourist areas of Salvador, Praia do Forte, Porto Seguro, Arraial d'Ajuda and Trancoso are ideal places for investors who want to capitalize on the tourism potential. They have the option of either buying residential or commercial real estate and offering it for rent or buying a commercial space and starting their own business.

In addition to demand for residential and commercial property, there are investors who are looking for land, which they can develop and resell. Most villages and towns of Bahia offer an attractive array of real estate options, thus giving a wide choice to all types of investors.

Some Of The Real Estate Hot Spots of Bahia

The capital city of Salvador and its metropolitan area are centers of tourism as well as economic activity. Salvador being a UNESCO world heritage site and with its large number of historical attractions is a draw for all types of tourists. Salvador offers a wide choice of real estate options which include apartments, houses, land and commercial properties.
Praia do Forte in the north and Trancoso in the south attract the bulk of up-market real estate investors. Praia do Forte offers apartments and houses, many of which are part of luxury condos. You can also find commercial real estate here.
