There is nothing quite like realising a lifelong dream - and, even better, timing it perfectly.
That’s the very real prospect now if you’ve ever coveted a gorgeous hilltop property in Tuscany, a house in Florence or indeed a noble castello evocative of grander days.
Touch down in Pisa for a house hunting trip and you’ll find an invigorated property market awaits you. The choice is extensive, the quality excellent - yet the Tuscan property market is still some 30% below its former peak.
And it gets better: the weak Euro continues to propel buyers into action, giving them 15% more spending power than it did just two years ago. This collision of positive factors means that we’re now seeing serious interest from buyers from the UK, and indeed from South Africa, India, the Far East and Australia.
The buying process is straightforward, and we can introduce you to recommended lawyers and generally help to steer the purchase over the line. Local property tax is also relatively benign, calculated using land registry values that are usually some way below actual market prices.
As our Italy specialist, I can take a detailed brief on what you’re looking for and, drawing on my local knowledge, take you on a tour of wonderful properties to inspire you.
Simply email me and we can get things started.
As the peak summer season comes to a close, it’s a perfect time to explore - and to focus on moving in to your own piece of Tuscany next spring.
