Just because a plot in Brazil might be extremely beautiful, it does not mean it offers good investment or development potential for
professional investors. We can assist with initial assessment studies for qualified investors that will look at factors such as estimated occupation allowed, estimated land cost/unit, estimated land cost per m2 construction, development cost forecast, exit prices and sales income forecast.
We can do a simulation of a property development on the plot that you like, where we create the product pyramid and look at the expected gross cost structure of the project. This will give a picture of the ROI potential on the Brazilian plot in question.
Most of the land in Brazil can be built on and the different regions usually have a regional plan that states the build density and the
number of floors allowed on land in the region. We can assist you in the licensing procedure by putting you in contact with leading licensing consultants who work closely with the planning authorities.
Very few plots for sale in Brazil are sold with building license in place, and if the land comes with a building license, expect to pay a high premium. For Brazilian land banking investors or real estate developers, there can be significant planning gain achieved by going through the licensing procedure for a plot.
It is advisable to do an environmental study on any plot prior to investing as if the plot has lakes, rivers, protected vegetation, sand dunes or any other environmentally limiting factors on it, it will limit what can be built on the plot.
Our Brazilian land sales department can also put you in touch with reputable environmental consultants, topographers, architects, lawyers, construction companies and project management companies.

Which are the best areas for land investment in Brazil?
Land for touristic projects
On the approximately 7500 km long Brazilian coastline, the northeastern part has due to the climate most potential and is getting most of the interest from international and Brazilian land investors. Several big Brazilian and international companies in the real estate and tourism industry have purchased land in northeastern Brazil in recent years, and a growing number have plans to make Brazilian land investments in the coming years. The northeastern region of Brazil has some of the best beaches in the world and the price of land in northeast of Brazil is still extremely attractive compared to most other promising tropical destinations.
The northeastern coastline of Brazil is approx. 3000 km long. The areas of biggest interest are areas where an international airport exists, and for most professional land investors the plot should not be farther than max 2 hours from an international airport. Considering that not every stretch of the coastline in northeastern Brazil is suitable for property development, one can quickly considerably narrow down the stretch of coastline in Brazil with good land investment potential for touristic purposes.
Land for Brazilian residential projects
The majority of the cities in Brazil are seeing very strong demand for residential properties targeted at the Brazilian population. Brazil has a massive shortage of housing and many Brazilian real estate developers are benefiting from the extremely strong domestic demand. To no surprise, many foreign real estate developers have started to invest in Brazilian land suitable for Brazilian residential projects. Besides Brazilian land investment opportunities for residential projects, Brazilian Homes can offer interesting Joint Venture opportunities for experienced property developers and property funds alike who are interested in benefiting from the strong domestic demand in Brazil for residential properties.
It's not only about price
Historically Brazils economy was a question mark and was plagued by an unstable currency, high inflation and high level of uncertainty. Today the stable and ever growing Brazilian economy combined with falling interest rates and the opening up of the mortgage market for ordinary Brazilians, has led to a growing domestic demand for housing in Brazil. Together with the growing international attention and demand for properties in Brazil, it is to no surprise that cost of land in Brazil has increased significantly over the last 5 years.
Cost of land in Brazil as a % of gross development costs is still very attractive compared to many other destinations. With a solid and growing economy increasing end user demand for real estate in Brazil, the risk of making Brazilian land investments is lower than ever before and Brazil today offers excellent land investment opportunities for investors looking to buy land in Brazil.
The golden rule of real estate “location, location, location” applies as well for land in Brazil. Land investing in Brazil can be very profitable, but the rule of thumb “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” is still as valid as ever before. Whether your intention is land banking or adding value to your piece of Brazilian land by building on it, the location still needs to be attractive if you are to realize your profit in the future. Like anywhere else in the world, you get what you pay for. Brazil has through time seen a few land schemes from foreign groups targeting foreign clients with little know how of Brazil. Most of these land schemes are in areas that are not attractive or are too far away from an area people either want to live or holiday in. While some of them might sounds cheap on a piece of paper, in reality they are expensive as very few future clients will want to buy the lot from the first investor as the area is just not attractive for any end user.
Construction costs in northeastern Brazil are more or less the same regardless of the area, and it just makes no sense to build on a plot if no one wants to buy the property from you in the future. It makes far more sense to invest in Brazilian land in a desired location, and then add value to the land by building on it. By buying land in Brazil in the right location, youll make sure you have an exit strategy for your land investment in Brazil.Use the search feature at the top of this page to browse our portfolio of lots for sale in Brazil!
