Real Estate Investments in Ipanema
The Zona Sul (Ipanema, Leblon, Gavea, as well as more popular Copacabana) is the most exclusive area of the city, where the upper middle class, luxury shops and a good part of the nightlife converges.
As space in this area is limited, and the area is close to 100% built, prices in these areas are high and keep rising as demand keeps growing and there are few alternatives.
North of this zone, Copacabana is a bit more risky; as it's well known nightlife also attracts lots of prostitution, street hustlers and petty crime. It's still the most popular destination; but one never knows when the growing feeling of unsafety in the area may trigger a decrease in value.
South of Ipanema, Barra and Recreio are increasingly attracting locals and investors - with their beautiful beaches and Miami-style backdrop.
