Latest statistics for 2014 point to a stabilisation in the Brazilian property market. Growth in both house prices and launches are expected to be moderate this year in keeping with a mature market. Experts do, however, predict pockets of higher growth in 2015, particularly in the northeast of the country in areas such as Fortaleza.
Fortaleza, the capital of Ceará in Northeast Brazil, continues to hold a privileged position in the Brazilian property market. Not only is the city one of the few where prices are rising above inflation, Fortaleza also stands out in sales figures.
