Investments in real estate in Italy


Italy continues to lead in the rating of countries where investments in luxury properties are still attractive. This result was published in the World Bank report for 2013. This is due to two factors: prices continue to decline, but noticeably slower than before. At the same time the quality of the real estate has improved markedly. Elite residential market has the following trend: the price level of Italian property corresponds to the cost of housing (adjusted for inflation) of the end of the 1990s, but the quality of construction has increased significantly – it is a fundamentally new class of property.



Advantages of investments in Italian real estate



Italian real estate is attractive to investors due to the following advantages:

  • Economic stability

    Italy is still the sixth country in the EU's by economic stability. While Greece, Spain, Portugal became an "anchor on the neck" of the EU, Italy has continued to lead successfully in attracting investment into real estate. The country has an excellent indicator of GDP, which is about 25,000 EUR per capita. Along with European capitals and megalopolises in the UK, France and Germany, many places in Italy are the most important financial and economic centres. Investments in Italian property are justified by the stable economic situation and many experts believe that such investments are a step towards successful future.

  • Regional diversity

    Stable demand of all Italian real estate is for luxury housing, which is located near lakes, for example, Lazio region, as well as property on the Ligurian coast, in Rome and Milan. More attractive is the north of Italy, while the south has more affordable prices for housing of the elite class. The lowest index value is on the Calabrian coast, here it is recommended to buy luxury housing for personal use – prices are available, and the nature is amazing. Another attractive region for investment in real estate is Sicily, followed by Palermo. The Government has adopted a number of anti-crisis measures, which should ensure the cost-effectiveness of the region and determine appreciation of real estate.

  • Attractive conditions for life

    Climatic conditions are the second most attractive, since Italy offers to anyone interested a luxury beach rest, as well as skiing in the high mountains. When buying a house to stay on the beach for personal use you should pay attention to Liguria, Sardinia, Sicily and southern Italy. Luxury housing in the region of Lazio, or northern Lombardy will suit for those, who appreciate to live in a temperate climate and those who like to conquer the snow-capped peaks should consider offers near ski resorts.

    Many foreigners buy property in Italy because of the attractive living conditions. For example, there are large colonies of foreigners living in Tuscany, Umbria, lake areas of northern Italy, etc. Italy is a comfortable country with developed infrastructure, excellent food, wine and culture that is attractive to tourists. On the peninsula you can find interesting regional centers for investment property in Rome, Naples, Bologna, Amalfi or Sicily, which have less investment risks than in the "new markets" of Eastern Europe.

  • Quality of house building

    Italy is a country with a high standard of living, comfort and safety. To date, construction standards have increased significantly, so it is not surprising that the quality of house building improved markedly due to attraction of new technologies of construction and use of more qualitative material. It attracts potential investors that focus on the acquisition of property for personal use.

 

  • Different types of real estate

    The brand "Made in Italy" is still successful and has universal recognition. Investment opportunities in Italy are different, ranging from luxury housing and finishing by farms with offers in "agro-tourism" area, which has recently become one of the most successful areas of business for foreign investors.

    Benefits that a potential investor gets when buying real estate for himself / herself are obvious. Range of offers is replenished not only by elite housing and apartments in major cities, but also by luxurious country houses, stately mansions, mansions, luxurious villas and ancient castles. Large variety of real estate options is shown not only by choice of type of property, but also by the opportunity to choose a regional location. Acquisition of real estate is possible near lakes, in mountainous regions, in seaside resorts in megapolises or islands of Italy.

 

  • Transport accessibility

    Another advantage of Italy is ability to move freely throughout Europe. Network of railways, motorways and highways, as well as excellent air service provides freedom of movement. International exhibitions held in Italy allow you to improve relations with business partners without any restrictions, so the investment in real estate is warranted.

    Investing in real estate provides many benefits for private investors. In addition to bonds, stocks and cash, real estate is the 4th most important form of asset. Many financial advisors believe that 30% of the total investment portfolio should be invested in real estate, and Italy is consistent with these objectives.
