It is observed in the contemporaneity great institutional changes, legal and regulatory issues that have a direct connection with the real estate sector and consequently with the production of urban space in Brazil. It is undeniable that we are witnessing a growing relationship between real estate and the financial sector in Brazil, which has led many authors to understand such a moment as the financialization process of the national real estate sector (SHIMBO, 2010; FIX, 2011; MELAZZO, 2013; SANFELICI, 2013; ROLNIK, 2015) and in this context the profits and gains of this sector would be increasingly of financial origin. Given this conjuncture we can observe a wide and expressive scientific production being carried out recently that seeks to understand this process and its results in the production of the urban space in metropolitan realities. However, it is increasingly emerging the need to understand the financialization process of the real estate sector also highlighting its effects on non-metropolitan realities. This research project seeks to focus its hypothesis and objectives on the concerns and needs that arise in this thematic perspective. Thus, the proposed doctoral research project will seek to identify and analyze the effects and results of the real estate financing process in medium-sized cities, without losing sight of the specificities of the real estate dynamics conferred on these cities (MELAZZO, 2012; ABREU, 2014; AMORIM, 2015; BARCELLA, 2015; 2017; 2018). We hypothesize that such specificities contributed to a manifestation of the financialization process of the real estate sector differently from what It is manifested and documented in metropolitan realities.
