HomeLuxuryLuxury real estate market curitibano is highlighted in the national panorama Terapia do Luxo 22 July, 2019 Luxury, PressThe trend of democratization of the luxury market, which can be perceived in most countries of the world, is also clearly visible within the reality of the Brazilian market. And one of the most obvious ways to understand this moment is through the good performance of the high-end segment in markets that go far beyond the Rio-São Paulo axis. The city of Curitiba is a good example of the decentralization of the luxury sector in the country. To prove this moment, the luxury real estate market of the capital of Paraná, which includes properties sold with values above two million reais, registered a growth of 70% in 2018.This is what identified a survey commissioned by the Association of Real Estate Market Leaders of Paraná and executed by the consulting firm Brain Intelligence Corporate. In an interview published in the Portal Bem Paraná, Leonardo Pissetti, director of Ademi-PR, explained the reasons for the reality of Curitiba. “I say it is the market that least felt the crisis, it is less sensitive due to the selling class, which is not so affected by the recession as a whole. This person does not depend so much on bank financing and, if it depends, it is a smaller volume. Banks also have less refusal to grant credit, because they are people who have been in employment for more years, have their own business.”In the photos that illustrate the story a luxury apartment in Curitiba that had the decoration signed by the architect Jayme BernardoIt is worth noting that despite the excellent growth of the luxury real estate market, it can not be said that it did not feel the impacts of the recent Brazilian economic scenario. “The crisis impacts (the segment), but not as happens in the middle standard, loss of income, a depression in the ability to buy. But it impacts on the mood of this buyer, who is more afraid of making an investment. What happens, then, is that our time to sell (how long it takes to sell a property) has grown a lot. If it had taken 3 or 4 months before, it now takes 6 to 8 months, “said Erick Takada, manager of one of the city’s leading builders.
