A Guide To The Range Of Houses And House Prices In Bahia Brazil

There are many reasons why the houses in Bahia have always been very attractive. Not only is it an excellent place to live in, it is also a smart place to make an investment. Houses in Bahia are likely to figure high in the minds of people looking for quality real estate for own use, for commercial use or for capital appreciation.

The villages of the Bahia coast and its cities present some very irresistible tourist destinations. The proximity to nature, the atmosphere of celebration and the rich culture shaped by a long and interesting history makes these places worthy of repeat visits.

However that is just part of the story. One of the unique features of Bahia is that it offers something for everybody irrespective of their areas of interest, be it nature, adventure, water sports, revelry, sightseeing, shopping, eating, you name it and Bahia has something great to offer.

This combination of a fantastic relaxing atmosphere, great tourism potential, an economy on cruise control, domestic demand, stable political system and investor friendly laws makes Bahia a very wise investment destination for every type of real estate seeker and investing in the houses an even wiser option. Let us take a look at what the houses in Bahia have on offer.

The Range Of Houses In Bahia
Colonial Houses

Bahia has much to offer when it comes to houses. The houses here range from lovely traditional cottages standing in between nice little gardens to high end buildings with the most modern design and architecture in luxury condos at priced locations.

While most houses will offer you the basic facilities such as a swimming pool and a garden, you can expect some great beach views and sea views in most of the houses in the coastal areas.

Some houses are made with commercial investment in mind and offer a guesthouse, restaurant and bar or have the space for expansion. You will very often come across plots with multiple houses being sold and bought as one piece of real estate.

Most houses on offer have some specialty and many have more than one strong point. A few examples would be proximity to the beach, a fantastic sea view, river, lake or lagoon view, commercial suitability, a large plot of land, gardens with landscaping, multiple houses and premium construction or location.

Prices of houses have a lot to do with their location, the plot area, the house area, the quality of construction, the age of the property and many other variables.As a consequence the prices vary widely from one house to the next and price alone does not tell the whole story.

To give you an idea about the prices, you may find some houses in Porto Seguro for as low as $46,000 while just a ferry ride across at Arraial d'Ajuda a beachside mansion could cost you over $2,700,000. We will take the average prices in the towns to gauge relative costs of owning a house there.
