Pages For Salvador Bahia Brasil Resources for Travel in Brazil



 North-Eastern Brazil is currently the focus of most international property investment and tourist development. It is where Brazilians head on holidays and boasts a yearly average temperature of 27 degrees and annual long sunshine, it enjoys the best climate in Brazil and its major cities offer a very stable investment environment.. Hotspots include Fortaleza, Natal, Recife, Salvador and Porto Seguro in Bahia.

For the next three days, we're going to run a special series of essays from property investment guru Ronan McMahon.
In these essays, Ronan (who comes to us courtesy of Pathfinder, the preferred real estate advertiser of IL) will discuss killer real estate deals in one of his favorite markets: Brazil’s northeast coast.

Usually, the fine detail of these property deals is reserved for members of Real Estate Trend Alert. And that’s still the case. But until Friday, you’ll get some extremely valuable analysis right here.
Even if you’re not interested right now in Brazil or property investing, these essays are recommended reading as an excellent case study in how the Path of Progress can affect what you do overseas.
It all starts today, below…

P.S. If you're new to IL, you'll want to get to know Ronan before you dive into his essays. He's put together a brief video that explains everything you need to know about him, the real estate markets he favors, and what he's working on right now. Watch it here.

The One Place to Buy in Brazil
By Ronan McMahon
I’m facing the ocean. Moon and city light bounces off the breaking waves and the white sand. To my right, three miles of beach opens up. The street market in the middle of the bustling boardwalk is open and it’s buzzing with commerce. Shiny and winking high rises shoot vertically up from the ground. These are the buildings that wealthy Brazilians want to live in.

This time-tested formula put 38 billionaires on the "Richest Americans" list last year...
But you don't have to be rich to profit from it.
I used it to put a modest $736 down and about two-and-a-half years later, cleared $43,500 in profit. This was a hassle-free, straightforward gain. And now I'm poised to do it again...
I explain how -- and how you can do it, too -- in this brief video presentation.
I’m standing at the edge of the boardwalk outside a trendy new bar. There was nothing here the last time I was in town. Tonight traffic is at a standstill as $80,000 SUVs unload their well-dressed cargo. This is where everyone wants to be—not just for partying...but also to live, do a business deal, have a quiet meal or exercise with friends. Jogging at 5.30 a.m. here is networking time.
This boardwalk of three miles has changed dramatically since the 1980s:

Today it’s fully built out. Prices have almost doubled since I first came here three years ago. I expect they will go up further. Demand is surging. Because there is no more developable land all the buyers are competing for the existing inventory. Members of Real Estate Trend Alert who followed my recommendation to buy here have done very well.
To my left I see the wide empty space of Praia Iracema. I’m standing where the boardwalk ends.
Iracema is the widest of the city beaches. In places it must be half a mile from the start of beach (where the temporary beach bars and huts are) to where the waves break. World class volleyball tournaments come here. For New Year’s and Carnival this beach packs in more than a million revelers. But, there has been little development here. People come to use the beach, for festivals and concerts. Then leave.
The Path of Progress is rolling into Iracema just like it did the boardwalk. This time it won’t take 30 years. The Fortaleza of 2011 is the #1 tourist destination for Brazil’s swelling middle class. And, development here is being supercharged as part of a $6 billion investment in tourism and infrastructure.
The boardwalk is being extended along Iracema to create Fortaleza’s next chic promenade. Trendy bars and restaurants are already eyeing up plots. They want to be open for business in time for soccer’s Confederations Cup that comes in 2013 and the city’s biggest party yet: the 2014 Soccer World Cup.
Bulldozers have cleared drab temporary beachfront structures to create space for a wide boardwalk. The site is being prepared for the new $135 million aquarium. It’s set to be the largest in South America and one of the continents biggest tourist attractions.
This is the place to buy. This area was rezoned last January bringing the maximum height down to 48 meters from 72 meters. Buildings approved under old zoning laws will always have unobstructed views in the higher floors. I know one such building. Prices start at $115,000, finance is available and the developer has agreed to offer a special deal to members of Real Estate Trend Alert on 30+ units.
As for the surging boardwalk which is set to seamlessly join Iracema: You’ll pay double…or more. And prices there are still rising…
