Examiner recently reported that according to an evaluation of AAA travel bookings between June 1 and August 15, Rome is the single most popular summer vacation destination for Americans traveling abroad. Naturally, the perennial desire to travel to such a location also encourages the ongoing growth in desire for buying property in Rome. You may have witnessed that transition, yourself. It may be why you’re visiting Connection Italia and presumably trying to develop your own personal guide to buying property in Italy. But there’s something more significant in the nationwide statistics that a mere reminder that you’re not alone in your love for Italian travel destinations.

In May, the New York Times real estate section ran a feature on one couple’s successful venture into buying property in Tuscany and restoring it from ancient dilapidation to a modern, luxury home. The house, built on the skeleton of a former mill estimated to date back to the 13th century, is now on the market for 6.5 million dollars. If that is around your price tag for buying property in Tuscany, you should certainly read through the vivid description, look over the photographs, and consider this property as an option for your Italian real estate purchase. But if you yourself are a developer like Ruth Infarinato and Chris Daniels, you might instead look upon their story is an object lesson in what you can do with property that might otherwise seem lost to time. There are many more such pieces of real estate for sale in Italy. We have featured some of them in the past, including the numerous limestone houses of Matera. As the Times acknowledges, buying real estate in Tuscany with bringing it out of the ancient world can be costly and extremely challenging. But as Infarinato and Daniels, as well as many others have demonstrated, there Read more…

The media has been replete with coverage of the Venice Architecture Biennale over the past couple of days. We can’t possibly hope to provide a comprehensive summary of that in this small space, but we certainly can offer some general commentary and encourage you to check for favorite news sources for information about what has been on display there. Of course, if you’re currently living in or visiting the city – and especially if you’re there looking into buying property in Venice – then we would certainly also urge you to go see it for yourself. The exhibition opened on Saturday and its panel of judges has awarded prizes to standout international designers. But the biennale will remain on view to the public until November. Not only does an event like this provide a showcase major design trends, the media coverage indicates that it also highlights what some people are doing or aspire to do with real estate for sale in Venice. That is, the event has focused not just on design but use, and might serve as an inspiration for spectators who are interested in buying property in Italy and would like to know what demand might exist among Read more…

A recent press release from the International Real Estate Federation pointed out that the organization had recently taken a handful of New York business students on real estate-focused tours of Spain and Italy, to teach them about current business conditions, opportunities for buying property in Italy, and so on. The brief article is an interesting snapshot of some of the learning opportunities that might be available to you if you are currently a student or if you are the parent of one and you want to give him or her a leg up in the world of real estate. Naturally, such business-oriented tours can be an excellent starting point for developing your own personal guide to buying property in Italy, if you have access to them. If you’re not a student, however, there may still be such learning opportunities available for both beginning investors and experienced individuals who already know a thing or two about purchasing real estate in Italy. But if you can’t find them, don’t despair and don’t commit to putting of your investment ambitions. After all, we at Connection Italia can certainly teach you what you need to know about current market conditions and your prospects for Read more…
