Hello my name is Bob Ritchie

    I am an American that has been living in Brazil for almost five years now.
I have permanent residence here in Brazil and will be glade to help those people that would like to contact me and get information that i have obtained for over five years in both living here as well as before moving into Brazil.
     Brief Accomplishments, in less than five years. From the start I moved into the north of Brazil in the state of Rio Grande do Norte 
    The (First property that I bought) in Rio Grande do Norte which is the north east corner of Brazil about 5 1/2 to 6 degrees south of the Equator was a Ocean Side Motel, or as they call it here in Brazil a Posada. The property had 11 chales and a Restaurant on the ocean side with Tartarugas or sea turtles that feed on the ocean bottom just out front in the waters off of my beach property. Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThus the name Tartaruga Chale e Restaurante came to name of my first business in Brazil. I needed a place to live so I (bought my (1) First house) just down the road from my business, but it was not on the ocean. It was just about 4 months later that I (bought my (2)Second house) that was on the ocean and just a short walk up the beach from my restaurant and chales. This location with my two houses and business is  called Tabatinga and being about 45 km just south of the city of Natal.  http://www.natal-brazil.com/entertainment/beaches.html 
In Natal at a place called Ponta Negra  I (bought my (3) Third house) a Pent House Apartment over looking Ponta Negra beach.  http://www.natal-brazil.com/entertainment/ponta-negra.html 
To finish my buying in Rio Grande do Norte I then (bought my (4) Fourth house) about a four hour drive by dune buggy just up the beach as they say, located north of Natal city on the beach sand fishing village called Galinos, not showing as I could not find on the map but from this sky shot
    All Four houses and locations where very beautiful and brought me profit to then move to the South of Brazil and to a location that I wish I knew of before stepping foot in Brazil.
     Today, and with no regrets of living in Brazil with what I have learned, being that of both good and bad experiences, I now have made my home on the Island of Florianopolis in the state of (Santa Catarina.)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Catarina_(state)  Here on the Island of Florianopolis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florianopolis  after (One Year and Four Months) I know have (bought my (5) Fifth, (6) Sixth, and (7) Seventh house)
      Brief Accomplishments,  Are not finished as I can give you much knowledge  as someone who lives here and wants to help others to find their Paradise, or Dream House or Vacation Spot, located in the best State of all the Stats of Brazil. 
      I am setting up a web site with much in depth information about how you can live here in Brazil,
and what it takes to buy a house or property as well as selling property or a house and what you need to do and watch out for.

Bob,  I bought a place in Salvador 7 years ago and I have to say I am leaving in 6 days to go there, its been two years!  Can't believe its been so long, we had it rented out for part of the time, I'm dying for the beach and warmth.  Now that the dollar is weaker, I suppose the value of my vilage is up, I'm too much out of touch with everything in Brazil right now but I'm thinking this place must have appreciate beyond the weaker currency.  What is your general opinion on values over the last several years?
