On my international real estate beat I look for two things: Capital appreciation and strong rental income. Some locations will offer appreciation potential, others the income. Only in a rare place at a unique moment does an opportunity tick both boxes.
I recently caught up with my contacts from Northeast Brazil, Daniel and Hanna Neves. We talked over how some of the opportunities members of our group have bought are working out—like getting a year’s worth of rent in just one month in the landscape and beach class condos we bought in 2009 and 2010 on top of strong appreciation. And, the rise in values in my recent recommendation of Fazenda Imperial.
Tao is a project with competitive advantages and a decade head start in an area where a government plan calls for the increase of tourism numbers from 3 million to 11 million by 2025.
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.
Mexico's Caribbean coast ticks all the boxes when it comes to real estate opportunity. It's on an upward trajectory. Prices have risen strongly in recent years. But for now, there's still opportunity to buy well and watch the value of your real estate rise.
Mexico is set to become a developed country in the coming decades. We can benefit most from this economic transformation in the beach city of Playa del Carmen. Playa del Carmen, a veritable boom town today, is already a well-recognized name among tourists. But today it’s becoming something more than just a hot spot for travelers.
Long, unspoiled beaches...a new infrastructure project that will open up access to an undeveloped but seriously attractive region...and the chance to watch a real estate investment grow rapidly in value: just some of the reasons you need to be looking at Uruguay's Rocha region. Little Uruguay is a small, open economy—and one of the best places to consider buying real estate in the world right now.
Prepare to buy in Panama. I first scouted real estate opportunities here nine years ago and since then there has been a lot of changes. The canal is being expanded with a $5.25 billion investment and an investment of $1.9 billion investment in a new city-wide metro. Balboa and Colón were two of Latin America’s busiest ports last year.
