Interesting the piece by Michaela Schorer about the IPD Italy Property Index who highlights for 2013 a stable and robust income return, even thought still in a slightly negative capital growth territory.
Of course these data are very general, they represent the whole market that not necessarily match regional property markets, which – especially in the second home field – can diverge substantially from the general trend.
It is good to see that there are several indications that the Italian real estate market as a whole in 2013 offered signs of improvement, showing a lower rate of decline in market values and stable income returns.
Another important news is that – in accordance with data shown – direct property recorded an average total returns in the medium/longer terms higher than equities and bonds.
In other words: a property in Italy remains a lifestyle choice but also an intelligent investment, especially with the Realitalia business model that combines convenience with solid letting returns, if you wish so.
Contact me at anytime to discuss this in more details.
