RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The real estate market in Rio de Janeiro is rather active and fast. While some apartments stay empty for months, the more popular ones can rent out within minutes after the visitation, so many times one has to act fast to secure a nice place to live in.
The decision in which part of town to live in can be decided by the preference of location, some want to stay close to the beach as in Ipanema or Leblon and others choose to live in the more bohemian or traditional neighborhoods . . .
