Reasons For Buying In Italy
There has never been a better
time to buy your dream home in Italy. This wonderful country, famous for
art & culture, golden beaches, skiing, lakes, delicious food and
hospitality is now offering the best property deals around.
The number of properties for
sale has never been higher and as in any market, when supply outstrips
demand, prices fall. There is more flexibility too, vendors are ready to
negotiate, so a property that on first glance may seem above budget can
often be purchased for much lower, we have negotiated discounts of up to
30% for clients in the last 12 mounts.
Additionally, from the start
of 2014, property purchase tax is reduced, down from 3% to 2% for first
time home buyers and from 10% to 9% for second home owners and remember,
tax is payable on the property's cadastral value which is usually around
50% of the market value.
To make things even more
attractive for foreign buyers from 2014 the owners of non luxury primary
residences will not pay IMU (local council tax).
