A second home or a holiday home is a great idea if you have the financial capacity. It is always helpful to have a place of your own where you can be away from the hectic routine, the pressures of work and the noise and pollution of the cities.

A peaceful and rural setting is ideal and if it is in a location that has great recreation options and good rental potential, you can generate an income from it. A holiday home in a place where housing and accommodation is in good demand will also be a good investment for the future. If you are looking for such a place, then Bahia, Brazil is one of your best options.

The Advantages Of Buying A Home In Bahia

Bahia Coast
Bahia is an attractive place to buy a home for both Brazilians and foreigners. It has a combination of advantages that you will not easily find in other places.

1. It is well connected and is just a few hours flying distance from the US and most European capitals.

2. The region has a warm, tropical climate and the temperature is moderate throughout the year.

3. It is a popular tourist destination due to its splendid natural beauty, wonderful beaches, flora, fauna and places of historical importance. This ensures adequate demand for accommodation throughout the year.

4. The population is a mix of many cultures, the people are friendly and the cuisine is attractive.

5. The region is generally free from natural calamities.

6. Although the country does have its ups and downs like most developing countries, the political system is stable.

7. The government stresses on planned development, infrastructure and protection of the environment.

8. The cost of living here is only a fraction of what it is in developed countries.

The Real Estate Market In Bahia

Praia do Forte House
Currently, the real estate market in Brazil is in a consolidation phase after years of rapid growth. The economy is slowing down, but the real estate prices were going up even in 2014, although at a slower pace. In 2015, the prices appear to be flattening as speculators are slowly exiting the market. This consolidation is good news for genuine buyers.

In a developing country where the real estate prices are driven by strong domestic demand and where there is hardly any leverage, the home prices are not likely to crash even in adverse situations because there is a large group of buyers waiting on the sidelines for the prices to come within their reach. This waiting demand supports real estate prices as long as finance is available and people have the necessary income to pay their mortgages.

Although the Brazilian economy has slowed down, unemployment is at its lowest and income is high. There is no scarcity of genuine buyers, but speculators will stay out for now because there is hardly any scope for making windfall gains. The slight reduction in demand has forced builders to rationalize their margins in order to move inventory and unlock their cash flows. As a result, good homes, especially in the apartment market, are available at attractive prices.

If you are looking for a second home in Bahia, the time is ripe to start your search. With the same budget, many more homes will be within your reach and the current market conditions favor the buyers, which will give you the room to negotiate a good deal.
