Ever since Brazil was 'discovered' by the Portuguese on 22 April 1500 it has remained a land of opportunity. With a land area totalling some eight and a half million square kilometres, Brazil has a population of approximately 190 million. This equates to approximately 20 people per square kilometre so it is certainly not over overcrowded!
Brazil boasts some of the most picturesque beaches in the world, amazing climates, and of course the stunning Amazon rainforest, which is the worlds largest, covering 2.3 million square miles
With the oncoming football 'World Cup' in 2014 - Natal is one of the selected cities to host this event - the demand for property will rise sharply. Brazil is also one of four contenders to host the Olympic Games in 2016 as well! All of which make it a very attractive country to invest in.
There are no restrictions on foreign ownership and all of the property in Brazil is freehold. As property prices in Brazil are still very low, this is the ideal time to invest in a flourishing market to gain maximum returns. Add this to the fact that the cost of living in Brazil is approximately 20% of that in the UK and this makes the country even more appealing.
More and more investors are now looking to purchase in Brazil in order to achieve high investment returns on their properties and you can expect to see a typical growth in your investment of around 15-20% each year. Once the infrastructure improvements have been completed, one can expect prices to rise significantly. Indeed, a 20-25% increase in appreciation would be conservative - one is of course taking into consideration that over the last two to three years properties have seen a 40% growth on their value.
Despite current global trends in the economy. Brazil continues to offer a safe climate for investors. Brazil is listed as one of the BRIC nations (along with Russia, India and China) and according to Goldman Sachs, is set to leap from its current position of 10th to being the fith largest economy in the world by 2050.

Due to President Lula's successful economic reforms, Brazil is becoming a very safe environment for foreign investors.
