March 2013 Update
Well the first quarter of 2013 has been really good for our clients. We are still building “Casa Populars” in Brazil.
The government in Brazil has a program called, “Mia Casa, Mia Vida” (My house, my life) whereby they fund almost 100% of a first time Brazilian home buyer.
This is fantastic for us as builders because the demand for this social housing is HUGE, and we don't have to worry about getting paid. The Caixa (Brazilian national bank) deposits the funds directly into our account.
The returns on our invested capital is really good. Our clients our making anywhere from 20% to 25% per year, and the best part is that the investment is guaranteed by the land.
I think that investors have to be much more conscience of what they do with their money and what projects they are putting their money into. There are so many investment firms that promise good returns to investors, but seldom deliver on their promises. The reason for this is that their operating expenses are to high. (as I have talked about in a precious article, “When it comes to real estate investing, it's a question of simple math.”
We have been doing business in Brazil for the past 10 years and have been building “Casa Populars” for the past 3 years. We do it for ourselves and we are also working with a handful of clients, helping them realize their investment dreams. We can help you with everything from A to Z. Purchasing the land, the building process and the sales of the homes to Brazilian buyers.
