This is the most easterly state of Brazil where the sun rises first every morning. João Pessoa, the state capital was founded in 1585 and is Brazil’s third oldest city. It is also renowned as the second greenest city in the world after Paris, with more than 7 square kilometres of forested land within its boundaries. The climate is tropical with an average temperature year round of 25°c and with most of the rain falling in the months of March to May. The airport offers connections to all of the country’s major cities and is currently being developed to accept international flights. At the moment international access is via Natal or Recife where visitors then take a short flight to João Pessoa, or you can drive which takes two hours.
João Pessoa is a thriving city of some 650,000 people offering all modern amenities whilst retaining the gentle and relaxed atmosphere of a provincial township. Crime rates are very low and foreign visitors receive a friendly welcome from the local populace. As along most of Brazil’s north-east coast, Paraiba’s beaches are a major attraction and in particular, those south of the capital in the region around Jacumã. This old fishing community has already attracted a good number of overseas buyers and thanks to the rapidly developing local infra-structure, the village already boasts supermarkets, restaurants and even internet cafes. Not only is Jacumã the perfect location for a second home but it also offers enormous potential for investors, as the fledgling property and tourist markets gather momentum.
Thanks to the relative under-development of the local market, most of the current real estate activity in the area is focused on the purchase of land on which the new owners build the residential or commercial projects to which they aspire. In this respect our local associate is well qualified to assist would-be purchasers all the way from the initial land purchase, through registration, planning authority, construction and right up to the eventual finished product.
