Italy Real Estate

The Attraction of Italy Property Market

Investing in Italy real estate is for many people a dream come true. Italy is an alluring place so often filled with happy and carefree vacation memories, but make no mistake, it can be deceptive when it comes to making investment decisions.


Even though buying a property in Italy does no longer have to be a complete bureaucratic nightmare and a plunge into the deep dark financial waters of the unknown, it still carries the same cautions, risks and considerations that apply to property purchase anywhere.

In addition, there are special factors to be considered when buying property abroad, and even more specialised considerations when focusing on the undoubted attractions of Italy.

In order to take maximum advantage of the investment opportunities the Italian market offers, you need to keep in mind some key points about the state and the structure of the market.

The Italian property market is marked by two key related facts:

  • Poor quality housing stock, with around 25% of housing needing
    significant modernisation.
  • Investment emphasis on maintenance and renovation of existing
    stock rather than lots of new buildings.

Renovation is the driving force behind the Italian market, rather than new builds and offers a great investment opportunity.
