Popular properties

Italy is a remarkable country, which has a long history, rich culture, traditions, and originality. This is a country of beauty, love, and everlasting sun.

Italy’s abundant cultural heritage presents a valuable opportunity for businesses in industries like fashion, food, and design. Leveraging Italy’s cultural allure can enhance the appeal of new offerings, giving an ambitious advantage in international markets.

These are some of the few reasons why people tend to buy Italian real estate.

Reasons to invest in Italy

There are some reasons why Italy is a good country to invest in:

Promising real estate opportunities

Italy presents a wide range of appealing real estate investment prospects, from purchasing a picturesque villa in Puglia for vacation rentals to investing in commercial properties in Milan. The variety and potential of the Italian real estate market are frequently underestimated by international investors.

The Italian authority actively promotes foreign investments in the real estate sector by providing incentives and tax advantages. With less stringent regulations for non-resident purchasers, investing in Italian real estate is now more accessible, allowing international investors to take advantage of the market’s opportunities.

Also, Italy has seen a consistent increase in property values, particularly in desirable areas and urban centers. Whether you choose to invest in residential or commercial real estate, there is a strong potential for your property to appreciate in value, offering the chance to accumulate significant equity over the years.

Can foreigner buy property in Italy?

Non-citizens are generally allowed to buy real estate in Italy, but there may be exceptions for citizens of certain countries or those that do not offer reciprocal rights to Italian citizens. These cases will be reviewed individually.

How much is the average house in Italy?

The average price of real estate in Italy for sale is approximately 915800 euros with prices varying from 450770 euros in Emilia Romagna to 59728509 euros in Milan. The average cost per m2 is around 3052 euros. It is not very difficult to find cheap real estate for sale in Italy.

Where is the best place to buy property in Italy?

Northern Italy is known for having higher property prices, with costs decreasing as you move further south. However, property in southern Italy for sale has exceptions.

If you prefer the sophistication of the north, consider exploring real estate options in Veneto or southern Piedmont.

Central Italy is typically more expensive, but there are affordable areas in regions like Tuscany and Umbria. Look into the northern and southern parts of Tuscany, as well as the northern, southern, and eastern areas of Umbria. Abruzzo and Molise are regions where you can find great deals on properties, making them worth considering.

Eventually, the cheapest real estate region in Italy is Calabria (southwest). So, you really have to take into account real estate in southern Italy for sale.

How to buy real estate in Italy

Purchasing real estate in Italy is fairly simple. Enlisting the help of expert legal and technical consultants to conduct essential property assessments can greatly facilitate a smooth and trouble-free investment.

The purchasing includes different stages, such as submitting a formal letter, preparing a preliminary contract, providing the deposit, financing part, and signing the final contract.

First steps to buy property in Italy

In certain situations, buyers may need to submit a formal written offer and place a deposit in escrow to secure the purchase of a property. Seeking legal advice is highly recommended as the offer, if accepted, could become a legally binding agreement.

When that stage is accomplished, the buyer’s legal representative conducts necessary searches to prepare the preliminary contract, known as the Compromesso. This document outlines the sale details and allows the seller time to gather documents and vacate the property before the deadline.

Typically, the buyer provides a deposit of 20-30% at the Compromesso stage, which is managed by a notary who registers the transaction. The buyer must obtain an Italian tax code for this process.

Financing your property purchase in Italy

Having an Agreement in Principle is beneficial when purchasing a property in Italy for sale as it outlines the amount you can borrow from a lender, which can impact the acceptance of your offer.

Some sellers may not agree to a mortgage clause in the purchase contract, so consulting with a mortgage broker like Traverse International Finance early on can help include this clause in the Agreement in Principle.

In certain cases, it may be possible to borrow up to the full property purchase price by combining a mortgage with a Lombard loan.

Completion of an Italian property

After the Compromesso stage, an impartial notary conducts a title search and drafts the definitive contract. In the event that the seller fails to meet their mortgage obligations, buyers have the right to reclaim double the initial deposit, but they would forfeit the deposit if they withdraw from the transaction without valid cause.

The final contract is signed in the presence of the notary. The buyer settles the remaining balance and any additional costs and taxes, with the notary handling the payment of stamp duty and other purchase taxes to the government on behalf of the buyer.

Taxes and charges on property in Italy

Prospective international buyers should budget for approximately 10 – 12% of the property’s purchase price when acquiring real estate in Italy for sale. This sum includes expenses such as agent commissions, property taxes, sales taxes (akin to valuable-added tax), notary fees, and potential additional costs like document translation.

Property owners in Italy are required to pay income tax on the hypothetical rental income of their property, although non-residents are only liable if their income surpasses a certain threshold.

The Imposta Municipale Unica, akin to council tax in the UK, is collected biannually by the local government. Capital gains taxes are not applicable when selling a property if the transaction occurs more than five years after the initial purchase. Foreign property owners are encouraged to create an Italian will for their assets.
