It’s not “The” paradise, but there are thousands of paradisiacal beaches, which permit exceptional residence conditions and vacations all year round.
The temperatures are extremely pleasant all year round (without the excesses of some tropical climates), the people are extremely friendly, and the real estate prices – for vacation properties or for rental income - are true bargains by North American and European standards…
Bargains of how much?
Well. It depends and varies, of course. There are modest properties between 30.000 USD, or 40.000 USD. And double, up to 100,000 USD, for luxury… Bargains, even so…
And where is this place?
The place is a vast zone of the North eastern coast of Brazil (the longest tropical beach coast of the world). It’s located mainly in the Brazilian state of Bahia, near small towns such as Praia do Forte, Itaparica, Ilha da Comandatuba, Costa do Sauipe, Porto Seguro, and others nearer the city of Salvador.
And the downsides, you may ask? And the safety issue? And are the people as friendly as mentioned before?
Yes. Brazilians are a peaceful and extremely friendly people. Brazil doesn’t have terrorist activities or political violence. Brazil is a very big country, and as a whole offers safe conditions for investing and travelling. Safety problems – namely robbery – are in the big cities… Safety problems are extremely rare in Bahia State. Even robbery and petty crime are largely unknown in most of Bahia.
You will notice some beggars in Salvador da Bahia, but in most of the coastal places – and we are speaking of a coast with many hundreds of miles…- even this problem is not sensitive.
You just need to test. Go to Brazil, go to Bahia. . . See the conditions, see the stock and the prices of local real estate. If you want to benefit from current prices, do not wait too long!
Present prices will not last for long. There is a growing international interest in Brazilian properties. The natural conditions offered by the coast of Bahia will promote tourism and real estate to the tops of international demand. It’s just a question of time.
As mentioned above, think of places such as Porto Seguro, Itaparica, Praia do Forte, Costa do Sauipe… They are small villages with an extremely safe and friendly atmosphere, where you will also find nearby luxury resorts, a large supply of properties, and natural conditions that you will not find elsewhere.
So… book a flight to Brazil. Brazil – and Bahia especially – deserve your visit.
