it is illegal to block or prevent free transit on a public road... which all lotamentos have... public roads. meaning anyone can travel through, into, or onto this site.
Two pointers - the estimated housing deficit in Brazil is estimated at 8 million with the potential to grow to 20 million taking into account population growth and family traditions changing (people moving out to their own homes at a younger age). Not 200.000.000 - that's the whole population of Brazil and of course many of them already have homes. But yes - the demand from Brazilians is still staggering when compared to overseas second home owners.i believe the answer is that there are no amenities, however if some people build them, such as a hotel, then there will be amenities... perhaps.
Thank you stuart for clarification.
JMBroad, in your defense regarding previous statement regarding "knowing your clients", I think that the best investment in Brazil accounts for an entire spectrum of potential future buyers. Compared with the expected 100, 000 britains and 200,000 Europeans to own a house in Brazil, there are close to 200,000,000 brazilians that also need homes. To me, this seems a far more suitable resale market.
Also - is everyone aware that buying plots in a site such as many discussed here, (sorry stuart but as your site is the reference i will use it),such as caponga - AND ALL THE OTHER LAND PROJECTS - means that roads are public and this prevents the site ever becoming a closed community... unless the roads are bought from the government - unlikely.
This basically means that security is a problem when people are not builfing on their land. Also, by law SEMACE can revoke your building rights annually... and other environmental bodies such as SMAC in Rio RJ. So even with build consent you may actually still lose your license to build.... this is a genuine problem in 1 in 10 plots.
Good luck whatever you do, but for me I just dont get the good feeling for that project, it seems a bit vague - then again, they are offering it for what it is... land.
Hi SimonJM Broad.
The scope for home owners is 200 000 000. The housing deficit is between 8 and 9 million. Reuters recently estimated over 27 million new homes will be required. This does not take into account the home sales and purchases, including foreign buyers, investment funds, etc etc.
SEMACE is purely the local environmental body covering local concerns in Ceara.
I would say that you are lacking information on Lotamentos, as the plots are co ordinated alongside public roads.
All roads in lotamentos are PUBLIC, not PRIVATE.
this means that you have to build along side the roads, or you can not access the plot.
If you build private roads you need to change the lotamento into a condominium. A condominium allows you to buy the public roads from the government, if they allow you. A condominium is not individual plots, it is individual units, such as an apartment building.
Hope that helps clarify the actual legality.
When the construction starts within the next 9 months (and the formal management company is set up),we will move down to the Caponga site from Fortaleza, and will have our site office there. We'll put the amenities in at the front end of the site straight away. I'm not sure if you've seen a site plan, but at the moment we are only marketing the front 16 blocks (1 to 8 and 22 to 29) of which over 70% are sold. So within 1 year the front of the site will have client houses built (probably blocks 1,2,3,5, 8, and 29 as these were the first ones bought last year),and a site office, management services, and a communal pool.
We have also had several proposals now for constructing a boutique hotel (40 rooms)- this hasnt been confirmed yet, however this is likely to be concluded (one way or another) this year, and would obviously bring additional amenities. I think even if this specific hotel project doesnt proceed, there will almost certainly be others in the future. Blocks 5, 25, and 26 have all been purchased as complete blocks.
I hope this answers your question, but please get back to me if you need anything else.
