Brazil is bursting with millionaires...and billionaires seem to be created by the month, as are thousands of new or expanded businesses. No surprise to you. We've been discussing Brazil's new middle-class status for a long time in RETA. Today I'm going to share a way we can profit from this trend...and it's probably not something you're expecting.

I strongly urge you to read this alert carefully. The Tao project near Tulum is a strong opportunity I have told you about in these alerts. The developer finance offer makes it stronger. You can buy here with $15,000 down and monthly payments of $800. Plus, as a RETA member you get additional benefits (more below). The finance offer will likely close in a matter of weeks. Only 100 units can be sold with this developer finance package...and 81 have been sold—with signed contracts. There are additional reservations which are closing by the day. You need to act now to avail of this this offer. In the future some finance may be available...or it might not be. BUT—a finance offer this good will never be made again.

Big $28,710 Lots in Uruguay’s Best Beach Town

On June 17th I told you about the opportunity at La Serena Golf in the province of Rocha, Uruguay. This is a great deal from a strong developer. Not far away (but closer to Punta del Este) lot prices range from $40-$135 per square meter. That's $162,000 to over $500,000 for an acre lot. And, these prices include projects without golf or tennis. Projects with hardly any amenities, in fact. At La Serena Golf you have both. Half-acre lot prices start at $31,900. As a RETA member you can avail of our member-only pricing and get a 10% discount. That gives you an entry point of $28,710.

Barriers to Entry: Where to Find Them, How to Profit From Them

Barriers to Entry: Where to Find Them, How to Profit From Them

Warren Buffett is the world’s richest and most successful investor. He looks for businesses with what he describes as “barriers to entry”. That’s something special or unique that insulates them (and their margins) from the ravages of competition. On my beat of scouting for undervalued international real estate, I look for property opportunities with similar protections. Nothing undermines real estate appreciation potential like a flood of supply. This reports explains where to find barriers to entry on the global real estate market and how to profit from them.

This place is unlike anywhere I’ve been: This is Arenal. Costa Rica’s Lake district. The peace and tranquility is broken only by the lion-deep roar of the howler monkeys. This is a place for hiking, horseback-riding, bird-watching, swimming, fishing (mainly for rainbow bass) and boating. With temperatures in the high 70s almost year-round the weather is perfect for an active lifestyle…and perfectly suited to keep the rich pasture land and forest a bright and dark green all year. Arenal is wonderful place where rich green pastoral hills roll down to the lakeshore and is conveniently located between Costa Rica’s international airports of San Jose and Liberia. This report details the latest real estate investment opportunities in the area.

The city of Fortaleza in Brazil is surrounded by hundreds of miles of dazzling, white-sand beaches. Its clear, tropical ocean waters maintain a year-round temperature of 80˚ F. Serving as the glimmering centerpiece for the state of Ceará, this capital city of 3 million people is the number-one domestic tourist destination in Brazil. Fortaleza boasts its own beautiful in-city beaches, buzzing nightlife, and great restaurants. Today, there is a pocket of opportunity right in the heart of downtown, Fortaleza. I’m talking about an area that has been neglected…but whose fortunes are about to change due to a very ambitious plan.

I'm watching developments in Ireland closely. In 2008 Ireland's banks and real estate industry spectacularly imploded. Since then we have been waiting. Not much happened until a couple of months ago. The real estate market never found a floor. There were almost no transactions. The nationalized banking system and the bad bank (NAMA: National Assets Management Agency, established to wind down failed developers and get land speculation loans off the banks' books) stayed silent. They have been sitting on all the Irish inventory on their books. That's set to change. Get ready.

Summer...180 attendees...and 23 of my trusted contacts...have all arrived in Toronto for the International Real Estate Investment Forum. The exhibit hall is buzzing. It’s great to see so many of those green badges that are reserved for members of our little group. It’s been energizing and informative to share ideas and experiences with those of you who have been able to make it. It has also been exciting to see so many RETA members connecting. At member-only events in the past, friendships have been made that turned into business relationships. That’s what happens when you pack a room with smart people chasing the same thing: Undervalued real estate opportunities.

All-in Trip to Tulum This July

As you know, I’m bullish on Tulum. Not just because of the coast and white sands but also because improved infrastructure and a government program plans to grow tourist number. When I was last there, I was impressed with progress at Tao. I stayed in the Sian Ka’an condo Hotel where some RETA members bought last year. This project is also being developed by Benjamin Beja. The build quality and the finishes are first class. The staff are friendly, the food is great...everything is tastefully done. It bodes well for the quality at Tao. Today, I would like to extend an invitation from developer Benjamin Beja to visit and see what I saw; to get the Tao experience. This is an offer you should give serious consideration to.
