Real estate development in Brazil is based on metric analysis of population behaviors and trends. This is not unlike markets in other developing countries, but it is especially influential in Brazil. Huge metropolitan areas like São Paolo and Rio have established populations that are dependent upon the gradual year-after-year expansion of real estate districts. Semi-rural populations are becoming more dependent upon metropolitan conveniences, and are choosing to search for real estate located in a closer proximity to urban centers.
It has been determined that a normal tolerance for travel for Brazilian residents to take advantage of urban conveniences is approximately 20 miles. This statistic is influencing the decisions of Brazil-based real estate developers. These entities are exploring options for housing and neighborhood construction that go beyond normal urban sensibilities and standard urban design.
Construcap, founded in 1944, is partnering with international venture companies to expand urban employment opportunities through suburban community construction. In places like São Paolo, this company has ventured mostly into infrastructure improvement and providing access by rural residents to urban job opportunities. Along with infrastructure, multiple housing and residential developments have been planned.
Though profit margins for Construcap have declined in the past few years, it has remained one of the most profitable real estate and development companies in Brazil. With a concentration on needed infrastructure and real estate design and implementation, the company posted a 27 percent revenue increase in the last year.
The Brazilian economic climate is subject to fluctuations like every other developing and industrialized nation. The need for non-urban expansion requires the availability of housing and industrial development companies to fill the gap. A company like Construcap is well-positioned to continue its trend of profitability by helping a new sector of blue collar Brazilian residents to find housing and employment.
