The Booming State Of Brazil’s Real Estate Market| 15 February, 2019
Since the election of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, the Brazilian economy has begun to rise steadily. As it approaches stable for the first time in a good while, aided immensely by the booming culture of music and film, the value of property and real estate has begun to rise as well. With so much improvement across the nation, let’s look at a few of the factors that have begun to increase.
Supply Versus Demand
In the past, one of the many factors contributing to the poor condition of the real estate economy of Brazil was the remarkably higher supply than demand. With more homes and properties than there are buyers, the prices drop steadily to draw in what few buyers there may be. This caused home prices to fall as much as 5.38%, effectively causing the market to limp along.
With the improvement to the market, supply and demand has begun to reach an equilibrium, balancing each other out. Doing so has aided in the rising of prices once more to help undo that 5.38% price fall that was experienced so recently. While supply still modestly exceeds demand, the closing of the gap has helped to counteract the difference.
Value Of A Home
One of the most important things to consider is, of course, the value of a home in the Brazilian real estate economy. There’s a variety of factors that go into the value, such as many taking local arts and museums into consideration when debating such a massive purchase. Just in the last few months, the dipping prices seen through much of 2018 have begun to rise again. This has also helped the general economy, as the rising prices helps with mortgages and other payment plans, as well as having effects on the release of equity and investment choices home owners make. Through the healthier nature of both of these, a snowball effect occurs in the rise of employment, the counteracting of inflation, and a myriad of other effects that aids in the continuing boom of the economy.
Though the outlook is bright, the future of the Brazilian economy is still unsure. Economic experts of Latin American countries expect to see a tumultuous bit of change throughout the coming years. Current predictions have the real estate market, and the Brazilian economy as a whole, continuing to rise for quite some time. Still, it’s difficult not to feel hopeful as a homeowner or real estate agent in Brazil: we should be prepared for the worst, but enjoy the rising of the market for as long as it lasts.
