The real estate market is … immobile? Quite the contrary.
To reveal the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth about the real estate sector has been thought by Istat: in 2016 real estate transfers exceeded those of 2015 by 17.9%. And, according to what was reported by a report by the Centro Studi Einaudi, the real estate investment in Italy by foreign citizens would seem to be back in fashion.
Good news for our country, isn’t it?
And now let’s see which properties are the most sought after and who requires a loan for the purchase of a house in Italy.
Luxury homes in Italy: which properties are privileged?
According to a survey conducted by the Tecnocasa Group Studies Office, those who turned to this real estate group for the purchase of a house chose:
- apartments (63% of people)
- individual villas (15.6%)
- attic (10%)
Another interesting information: 81% of people bought the main house and, of this percentage, 49.5% did not take out a mortgage.
In Milan, the demand for prestigious properties is quite high. As are the prices per square meter. To give an example, the new buildings on Via Garibaldi reach peaks of 13 thousand euros per square meter. In general, however, in Milan it is unlikely to fall below 4.5 thousand euros per square meter.
Those looking for luxury homes, rely heavily on large properties
In Rome, those looking for luxury homes, rely heavily on large properties (on 200 square meters), with a panoramic view and placed in elegant condominiums. A real luxury real estate in Rome? An attic in the Piazza di Spagna area: it is possible to spend even more than 15 thousand euros per square meter. In general, those who want to buy a luxury property in Rome are looking for penthouses and super penthouses. How can you blame this choice?
In Naples, luxury property rhymes with large terrace (possibly Gulf view) and garden. Also favor homes in small private parks or in condominium contexts.
Florence is one of those cities where the demand for luxury homes has never really suffered a negative trend. Here people look for very large buildings (on 200/300 square meters).
Obviously many others are the places that preserve real estate treasures: Turin, Como, Trento and then also the regions of Umbria, Sardinia and Sicily.
Some of the most coveted properties
In addition to the penthouses and villas, are the castles, the spearhead of the luxury sector for foreigners.
So, to recap:
- the real estate market in Italy is not stopped;
- the luxury real estate market in Italy is not stopped;
- villas, attics and attics, castles, large spaces in elegant contexts are the most sought-after types of luxury properties.
