Real Estate Investment In Coastal Bahia


Real Estate Investment In Coastal Bahia

Real estate investments in tourist-intensive coastal regions usually pay rich dividends as long as you give them sufficient time. If you are lucky to get in at a low price, the gains will be even more attractive. With an area larger than France, over 650 miles of scenic coastline, tropical vegetation, warm climate and plenty of ecological and cultural diversity, Bahia is one of the best coastal areas for real estate investment.

The Football World Cup of 2014 and the upcoming Olympics in 2016 has resulted in large-scale investments into infrastructure and a surge in tourism. With the economy slowing down and the real estate market in a consolidation, real estate prices and availability have never been better in Bahia. For anyone who wants to invest in a high-potential coastal region, Bahia currently presents a rare opportunity. Let's quickly go through some of the best places to buy real estate in the region.

Bahia Coast

If you are looking for a home or commercial investment in a metro region, then the capital city of Salvador and the nearby areas like Lauro de Freitas provide many options. Alphaville, Pituba, Costa Azul, Stella Marris, Horto Florestal, Graca, Barra, Ondina and Itaigara are some popular localities within the city. You will get many types of apartments and houses in a wide price range in these places. Like most developing countries, there is a constant migration of the younger population into the cities. You can easily generate income by renting your home or apartment.

The real estate market in Bahia is huge and provides a variety of options that will match the needs of all types of investors. Although healthy corrections are possible, due to the absence of leverage and a strong local demand, the real estate market in Brazil is unlikely to crash. It is a more predictable real estate scenario where buyers and sellers are always available at the right price. Currently, speculators are exiting the market and that is good news for genuine homebuyers and investors because the pricing will be more realistic.
