Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
I've written in the past about my general concerns related to the Brazil real estate investment market. Not because I don't think there's money to be made here, but because it's a difficult market to navigate. You've got language issues, currency issues, and issues to do with moving money in and out. Bottom line, this market is more complicated than the typical small investor is prepared for. The costs of investing here, in terms of both time and money, can easily eat up any profits you might otherwise realize.
