A new world-class port is being built in the city of Pecém in northeast Brazil, and is set to become a major integrated-manufacturing hub, reports InternationalLiving.com. This project is already in the works and billions of dollars are being invested.
The first opportunity is a perfect bolthole if you’re looking for Caribbean living with a European flavor close to home. Direct and affordable morning flights from the U.S. will get you here in time to soak up early afternoon sunshine on the beach or bathe in the turquoise waters
- Crisis Replay… Soon Argentina Will Be on Sale Again
Posted on August 24, 2012 by Ronan McMahon
Just over a decade ago Argentina spectacularly unraveled with the biggest default in history—$100 billion. Dollar deposits were converted to pesos. Then, overnight, the peg of one-to-one with the dollar was broken. The unpegged currency immediately devalued. Savings were wiped out. Banks were set alight and locals took to the streets in protest.
It’s a rare thing these days to be able to say that you own real estate on or close to “Grade A” beach. By that, I mean truly stunning beach, either Caribbean white sands or the bluest stretches of the Pacific Coast. We’ll discuss the following three beach areas in detail at our upcoming International Real Estate Investment Forum…and for those in the room, $91,500 in savings will be on offer.

If you couldn’t join us in June at the International Real Estate Investment Forum in Toronto, Canada, don’t despair. We’ve found a way to share this information with you at home…
Half my time is spent on the road—scouting for undervalued real estate opportunities. The top places on my radar right now are in fast-emerging beach destinations. In each place I visit, I study how much income you could make if you made your beach home available for rental when you aren’t using it. These are my top three picks for this strategy.
The best way to see this stretch of Pacific Coast is from a real estate project I recently visited. Perched at the highest point in the project, yet only a gentle four-minute stroll down a cobblestone lane, through landscaped gardens to the beach, views open up to the blue ocean and along the coast and rich green forested hills.
In this Global Real Estate Index, you’ll ﬁnd listed the 27 places in the world today that boast the most attractive, and potentially lucrative, real estate opportunities. Each of these places has something special to recommend it…some attribute you won’t ﬁnd elsewhere. Those that top the list hold the most proﬁt potential right now. Those at mid-table and below are ones to watch.
- Irish Property Secrets They Don’t Want You to Know…
Posted on February 26, 2012 by Ronan McMahon
On March 1, real estate prices in Ireland will reach an all-time low. You could pick up an Irish country cottage for $9,750…a Dublin pied-a-terre for $46,500 or a beachfront hotel for $15,365 per room. You could buy at discounts of up to 90% off peak prices. You could buy with cash on cash yields of 22%.
I’ve been telling you this week about how you could buy a five-acre home lot in pristine jungle, minutes from some of the Caribbean’s finest white-sand and turquoise waters…with a manageable down payment and monthly payments of $500.
If there’s a finer stretch of white Caribbean powder sand and turquoise water…I haven’t seen it. Perched just above the tree line of gently swaying palms, this roof terrace gives the best vantage point for sunset. The only sound is warm turquoise waters lapping on the crescent of white, warm coral-sand beach.
Today I’m going to show you how to rate the value of any real estate you may be interested in buying. I’ll use a current property for sale as a case study. In fact, this is a killer deal near the Pacific Coast. In the place pictured here…bright, thick green jungle canopy rolls down to a coast of sandy beaches and rocky points. It’s truly stunning. While prices in other parts of the country soared, prices here stayed low because it was difficult to get to. Now a new smoothly paved coastal highway has changed that.
The photo above is typical of a view on a certain stretch of Pacific Coast. It’s in this approximate region, just back from a sandy beach of volley ball and neighbors’ sun loungers, made private by rocky coves, that you could buy a lot for $417 per month. On the 1st of November 2014 you could make your last payment.
Attendees at this week’s International Real Estate Investment Forum in Toronto heard about a new deal in Brazil. Brazil is now a middle class country. And it’s bursting with millionaires. More and more Brazilians can afford to retire to chic beach cities like Joao Pessoa.

“I’m kicking myself for not getting in on that deal you told us about three years ago,” he confided. “At the time, I thought ‘Is he crazy?…’” If the guy had followed Ronan’s advice back in 2008, you see, he could have made more than $38,000 on an investment of $2,234.
I couldn’t help doing a stealthy Google search as International Living revealed his favorite up-and-coming oceanfront destination in Uruguay. He had just shown a four-bedroom home smack dab on the beach, with two terraces overlooking the ocean. The asking price is $92,000, but we think the owner will take less.

Arenal is a secret corner of Costa Rica. It’s gorgeously scenic. Rolling green hills slope down to the lake shore…the calm surface of the lake mirrors the wide blue sky and soft clouds overhead…and the sharp flared cone of a volcano steals the show.

Sometimes, a real estate developer charges a different price to different groups for the same condo, lot or home. Obviously, you want to be part of the group that pays less and gets more favorable terms.
