How a Pool and Garden Help Sell Properties in Brazil

How a Pool and Garden Help Sell Properties in Brazil

Brazil is a booming property market with plenty of buyers looking to grab their own piece of paradise, but it’s not always easy selling off property if you don’t have the right features that buyers are looking for. Most buyers care about things like the size of the property and the interior features, but many are paying extra attention to the pool and the garden of the property as well.

If you don’t have a pool on your property you may want to hire a contractor to put one in before you sell off your property. Doing so could net you a bigger resale value and make it easier to sell off the property quickly. You can locate a pool or landscaping quality contractor easily by contacting a referral company like contractorstoday.com. Dressing up the garden can help move a property as well, and could also help you raise prices a bit. Both investments can pay off with help from the right contractor and a good solid building plan that makes the most of your outdoor space.

Improved Resale Value

IF there’s one thing that any property owner is thinking about when enhancing an existing building, it’s how the enhancement is going to affect home resale value. Making the right changes to a property can make it infinitely more valuable, and pool and garden enhancements are two areas where enhancements come with large value increases. Adding a classy pool to your property is going to make it easier to sell and make it easier for buyers to spend a bit more to have the luxury of a pool. A nice garden is another area that will make the entire home seem more valuable and increase the resale value of the home as well.

Enhanced Perceived Value

One of the biggest benefits to a well-maintained garden and pool in Brazil is that it makes the homes seem more valuable overall. There’s something luxurious about these items, and even a low-cost home can be made to look much more valuable and desirable with the right pool and garden combination. You could add a surprising amount of value to your property just by adding in a pool, so talk with a realtor in the area about how pools add value, and consider adding one to your home to really maximize that resale value before you finally sell it off.

Improved Entertaining Options

Brazilians love entertaining guests at their homes for meals and other special occasions. In Brazil’s mild climate it’s common to entertain guests outdoors, and a nice pool and garden makes this easier to do. Many buyers look for qualities in these homes just for those specific reasons, and a lack of these features can make it much more difficult to sell a home to a prospective buyer. That’s why it’s often in your best interests to hire a contractor and a landscaper to put in a pool and create a memorable garden that buyers are going to want to have.

Spend the added money to get a great pool and a beautiful garden, and you’ll have no trouble selling of your property in Brazil. Not only will the properties be easier to sell, but they will be worth more as well, making it even easier to sell them off for a profit.

Brazil; Powerful Indicators For Economic Success in 2017 and Beyond

a bright new dawn for the brazilian economy?

 

While it is difficult not to be caught up in the short termism surrounding the economic and political situation of the country, Brazil remains a global powerhouse and one of the critical growth markets in the decades to come.

It is true that we have seen 3 years of deep recession and ongoing political turmoil but the following facts put Brazil´s position in a more balanced perspective when looking to the future;

-)No country in the western hemisphere grew as much as Brazil in the past 20 years

-)Brazil´s recent 10 year GDP growth is second among the top 10 world economies despite this current recession. 2017 is seeing the resumption of this growth trajectory

-) Brazil is still in the top 10 most powerful global economies and *PWC* predicts it will become the 5th largest economy(currently 9th)by 2050 with a growth rate of 2.6% pa.

 

So what makes Brazil stand out amongst emerging economies?

-)large well established agriculture,manufacturing,mining and service sectors with broad industrial base creating a highly diversified economy

-)richness in natural resources,young workforce,unexploited domestic market

-)well settled democracy (free press,independent judicial system etc)

-)economic climate less volatile

-)increasing international trade favouring exports

-)business friendly on the whole ,no major cultural differences with U.S, Europe

-)highly urbanized compared to other emerging economies, 84% of the population live in cities.

-)whole country speaks one language

-)creative,flexible workforce and young population ( 24% under 14 - Only 7% above 65)

-)no major natural disasters

-)peaceful relations with neighbouring countries

-)tariff free access to neighbouring economies

-)immense reserves of energy,minerals,raw materials

-)close to self sufficient in oil and world leader in low emission fuels..

-)still significant market for 200 million consumers(worlds 5th largest population) fast growing consumer market,high growth potential. Many companies are undervalued and in need of restructuring,capital,technology.

What gives foreign investors in Brazil cause for optimism ?

Brazil is in a transition period to a freer more efficiently run economy

Income per capita has risen for 18 years running until 2014 and will resume in 2017

It´s the 4th primary destination for FDI (predicted at 60 billion USD + for this year)

Inflation coming down in 2017 (45%target) Now at 8% and falling.

Structural pro-business reforms in place

Budget controls approved to ensure long term fiscal balance

New more liberal approach to international trade

In summary there are plenty of positive precursors for economic success in the Brazilian economy if you are inclined to look for them. I for one err on the side of optimism and look forward to a realignment of forces towards growth and renewed prosperity..

Buying Real Estate in Brazil? WARNING !!! Do Your Due Diligence !!! 3 Key Tips

How to avoid a nightmare when buying real estate in Brazil - The basics

Are you on the look out for a beautiful piece of real estate in Brazil,whether to while away the hours on paradise beach,retire in the sun or capitalize on an investment opportunity?

If so....please read on..it could save you a fortune!

I have been buying and selling property as an investor and broker in Brazil for the past 12 years and have seen it all. The good the bad and the ugly.

I am very happy to say that my experience has been good on the whole and at times very lucrative. However I regret to inform you that I have been on the ugly side on one or two occasions over the years and this boiled down to not following the guidelines that I am about to give you..

So what are the key documents I need to have from the property seller when buying real estate in Brazil?

-) Certidao de Registro e Onus... Certificate of Registration. This is THE definitive and updated document to the property which provides name and details of the actual owner,the properties characteristics,who the current owner bought from and any details of the construction.You can obtain this certificate at the notary office in which the property is registered.It costs R$117($30 USD)and gives you absolute assurance that who you are buying from is in fact the actual seller.

The public deed (escritura publica) is normally the fundamental document that covers all the details of the property that you need.The only thing it doesn´t show you is the current status of property ownership(ie who is the owner today,not when the deed was issued!)

-)Buying real estate from a Brazilian company?   ORANGE ALERT !!

I came a cropper here!! Lost money but learned a valuable lesson! If the seller is a Brazilian company please verify that the person signing has the legal powers to transfer the property.For this you need to ask for a copy of the company charter and the last additive/amendment made.Then check the administrative clause to see who has powers to sign. To be absolutely sure,ask for a ¨simplified certificate¨(certidao simplificada )at the chamber of commerce (Junto commercial) 

-)Buying from someone who has a power of attorney to represent the seller?  RED ALERT

I came unstuck here also and it cost me dear!   If the seller gives a legal proxy for someone to represent them in the transaction it must be public,first off(registered at a notary office)it must specifically include,in writing, the power to sell the property and it must be valid. You need to go to the notary office that issued the proxy to verify it´s validity(ask for a ¨certidao do procuracao¨at a cost of 40 reals)

I hope that this information can help you avoid the pitfalls i fell into.I sincerely wished I had followed my own advice at the time but it was an eye opener and I learnt a big lesson from my mistakes.
