Obelisk - Select Investments in Brazil

The combination of a rising population and chronic housing shortage means the Brazilian real estate sector has a lot to build. 23.1 million homes are needed by 2022, an investment in Brazil that runs to R$3.2 trillion.

A recent study carried out by the Fundaçao Gertulio Vargas for the Sao Paulo Federation of Industry (Fespi) calculates there’s a shortage of around 7.2 million properties in Brazil at the moment. Of the total 60.2 million homes, the authorities class 56.7 million as ‘adequate’, 3.5 million as substandard and the remaining 3.7 million are shared (several families living in the same home).

Demographics and Brazilian Property

While this is a huge shortfall, the 7.2 million shortage does not take the rise in population into account. This factor will exert extra pressure on the market for real estate in Brazil. The study finds that the current number of households (63.6 million) will rise to 79.5 million over the next 12 years. This 25% increase will, in turn, generate its own shortfall in supply of property.

Brazil therefore needs 23.1 million more homes by 2022. The study reaches this figure by adding the current deficit (7.2 million) to the rise in number of households (15.9 million). A report by Ernst & Young in 2010 found that 37 million properties are needed in Brazil by 2030.

Massive Investment in Real Estate

To get rid of substandard housing and shared housing, investment in Brazil will reach enormous proportions. Some of it is already underway via the massive government social housing investment in the Minha Casa Minha Vida programme. This involves R$105.7 million of investment in Brazil over the next five years to build 3 million homes for low-income families.

However, the bulk of investment in Brazilian real estate will come from the private sector as developers build hundreds of thousands of homes to reduce the shortage. In total, R$3.2 trillion will have to be invested to keep up with demand, a figure that translates into massive opportunities for real estate investment all over Brazil.

For Obelisk International, this latest study confirms the huge potential for investment in Brazil. With steady pressure on the property market in Brazil from ever-increasing demand – likely to last the next two decades – Obelisk International expects investment opportunities to also increase. This means that Brazilian property represents one of the best investment scenarios around.
