Description of Santa Catarina
It takes a lot to attract investors away from the hub of Rio Grande do Norte, and Santa Catarina has it in spades. A genuinely breathtaking state where snowcapped mountains flank crystal white beaches and all the pleasures of summer are an everyday reality, Santa Catarina is stylish, sublime and in constantly high demand among upper-class tourist groups. It's also a mecca for locals with a taste for surfing – the watersports here are truly incredible. Brazil has been promising solid rent yields with quite some consistency over recent years – coastal haunts bringing home anything from 4 per cent up to 8 per cent for the right properties in high-demand areas. As the property market of Brazil continues to grow in both strength and international investor appeal, areas like Santa Catarina are soaking up the spoils.
