The countries where buy-to-let properties grant the highest returns in Latin America

The main objective of property investors who want to buy a property abroad is to make a profitable buy-to-let investment. Before choosing the most suitable country, wise property buyers need to investigate and check the conditions of the worldwide real estate market.

Latin America is becoming more and more competitive on an international scale and will grant excellent and rewarding investment options in the future. Some analysts have asserted that Brazil will be one of the world economic leaders together with Russia, India and China.

Far-sighted purchasers are increasingly interested in finding advantageous investment opportunities in Brazil, as the cost of living in the country is lower than in other European countries and buy-to-let investments guarantee excellent returns.

Brazil offers both a city-based residential market and an emerging holiday let market on the coast. Brazil is an established tourist destination that attracts visitors from all over the world. Tourism is contributing largely to the economic growth the country is experiencing despite the crisis.

Many multinational companies working in the tourist and industrial field are planning to invest in Bahia. Several Spanish and Portuguese developers are supporting the building of tourist complexes and luxury hotels.

Sao Paulo offers one of the strongest markets is South America. Many foreign investors choose Sao Paulo for its ideal location and for its growing economy. The value of properties is increasing. Overseas investors are attracted above all by the housing market.

Property rental income is very high in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil’s most famous city – that bustles with energy and attracts visitors from around the world who want to enjoy the colouful and thriving carnival celebrations and the wonderful beaches of Copacabana.

Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Uruguay also offer high Gross Rental Yields per annum.

The housing market in Chile is successful. The country offers a wide range of mortgage products and has the highest rate of homeownership among Latin American countries; furthermore, renting represents a great income producer. The Chilean property market is expected to confirm the positive trends it is experiencing and to be successful in the future.

Colombia is also considered one of the best places to make real estate investments. Cartagena is one of the most attractive cities in the country to buy a real estate property. The property market of the city offers newly-built houses, renovated Colonial buildings, high-rise condominiums… and international investors are not subject to any restriction. They just have to register their investment with the government to be able to take their capital and their profits upon sale.

Ecuador is also becoming increasingly popular among international investors. Quito – the capital city – is a popular retirement destination for expats coming from North America, thanks to its warm climate, to the spectacular mountain views offered by Andean mountains and to its exciting nightlife. Furthermore, a real estate investment in the city offers excellent returns.

Uruguay saw the invasion of Spanish investors who were interested in purchasing luxury properties and commercial premises. Rental returns in the area surrounding Montevideo – the capital city – have increased a lot.

The real estate market of Costa Rica offers interesting investment opportunities. The country is committed in developing the tourist sector while limiting the impact on the environment; therefore, the country has become an internationally known and appreciated ecotourism destination. The development of the ecotourist sector is contributing in making the demand for residential properties for sale and for rent increase.

When making a real estate investment, property buyers aim at finding the most suitable destination and the best property to make the most out of their purchase. Of course, Latin America offers a wide range of investment options, but the best way property buyers should follow to make a profitable and safe investment is always to rely on professional and honest real estate agents who can suggest them the purchase opportunity that meets their criteria fully.
