Brazil and São Paulo, emerging global leaders for real estate investment

In recent weeks there's been a lot of alarmist local press about the Brazilian economy stagnating. From my limited perspective it seems to be more a case of temporarily slower growth rather than a shrinking economy and certainly a much more manageable problem than the ones in left behind in Europe.

The 2012 AFIRE Annual Foreign Investment Survey has just been released and gives us a view from outside. In essence it is what real estate holders regard as the best places to invest in. In its own words:

"Although the U.S. is still regarded as providing the best opportunity for capital appreciation , its first-place score shrank from 64.7% in last year’s survey to 42.2% this year, with Brazil closing the gap in second place with 18.6% of the votes.   Survey respondents hold more than $874 billion of real estate globally, including $338 billion in the U.S"

"Brazil and its largest city, Sao Paulo, have emerged among the global leaders in this year’s survey. Brazil jumps 14.2 percentage points, from fourth place in last year’s survey, to be named the second best country for capital appreciation, pushing China into third position. With the U.S., these countries received approximately 70% of the vote on this question; the remaining 30% was spread across 13 countries on five continents. Sao Paulo rose from 26th place to be named investors’ fourth global city for real estate investment dollars in 2012.  "

Here are some of the graphics from this year's survey:

Brazil is second only to the US for capital appreciation opportunities:

Brazil, number one ranked emerging country for real estate acquisitions:

São Paulo is ranked 4th best city for real estate investment:

In many ways 2006 was the non-year for real estate. Many markets waited for spring market which was disappointing. Markets then believed buyers would re-group in summer,and buyers were a no-show. Fall and last market hopes were dashed when fall came and went, with plenty of traffic at open houses, but few contracts.Read more at-real estate forecasts

Hello....What a great news. Thanks for sharing this awesome news. Actually I am finding this types of article, So thanks once again for this awesome content. Really it is helpful. One way to sell a house that has been in the market for a long time is to motivate the real estate agents. I have learned that reducing the price of the house in order to make it more attractive to buyers doesn't work much. Instead, increasing the commission of the agents is a better way of getting fast action in selling a property. Inform all agents about your new commission scheme and you'll see that they would be scrambling to get your house sold quickly for higher commissions.Take a look at here-house sold prices
