The Rental Market in Zona Norte of Rio

The Rental Market in Zona Norte of Rio.

As many of you know, my plan is to retire in Rio in a few years.  But real estate prices are constantly rising as the city becomes a more popular destination in preparation for the World Cup and Olympic Games.  What many do not realize, or acknowledge, is that Rio is a very large city with many barrios still “undiscovered” by foreigners (gringos).  Given the extreme poverty of most residents in Rio, I cannot believe that in our lifetimes a gringo will be unable to find decent, affordable housing in the  city.

Take a look at the recent Rio Times article on suburbs in Rio that validates my opinion.  So go ahead, dream of that move to Rio!
