Investing in Tuscan's brick

Choosing the righ house with the right people:

The first step towards purchasing a Tuscan house, probably the most important, is the determination of your budget, thinking also at the possibility of asking for a mortgage in Italy (why not?). Once you have decided what sum you are ready to spend, you have to calculate that this sum will be burden by the taxes to be paid at the time of the final contract, the notary and geometra fees, the commission rates of the agency without of course including the restoration works: so we can say that the purchase price will be increased of a 10-12%.

The second step will be the focusing on the features you want in an ideal homebearing in mind that the perfect one does not exist and that everything is always a compromise!

The easiest way to find the right property is to find a reliable Real Estate Agent that you think you'll be comfortable working closely with. To ascertain the expertise and competence of the agent then following list is a good starting point:

  • Are they a member of the Italian Registry of Italia Real Estate Agents (Albo degli Agenti Immobiliari)? Keep clear of unregistered agents, if they are NOT on the list, they are probably trading illegally!!!

  • Are they insured against professional risk?

  • Are they part of one of the two main organizations of real Estate Agencies: the FIMAA, (Federazione Italiana dei Mediatori e Agenti in Affari) and the FIAIP (Federazione Italiana degli Agenti Immobiliari Professionali)?
    Last but not least, in Italy the agent has a loyalty to both the buyer and seller and acts for both, that is why he charges a commission from both parties.
