Continuing the surge in real estate sales to foreigners, 2014 looks like being a good year. This is as well as 2013 which saw a 38% increase. We see people who love Italy and usually visit as a tourist and then decide to buy a second home so they can return for their holidays. There are various types of buyers, from those who love the cultural cities of art, those who love small villages surrounded by countryside, to those who love the sea, hills or mountains. Many are seeking the peace and tranquillity of farmhouses in the countryside but with easy access to major road networks, not far from motorways, airports or train stations, where you can enjoy seclusion but at the same time serves as a good starting point to visit towns and cities of art and culture. There are also many investors who see Italy as a good area to invest in with its reference points of art and culture,
especially in the tourism and hospitality industry. Take, for example, the many Hollywood stars who have bought resorts, B & B’s or restaurants here in Italy. There are many American and Russian buyers, as well as buyers from other European countries, and new markets such as China. The Great Estate & Chesterton real estate group is a point of reference for the international real estate market in Italy, which is already present in Europe. We have a consolidated market in Russia and are rapidly expanding in China, ready to seize each new challenge thanks to our Agency Network project which is a creation of a network with the best real estate agents in Italy, to offer a service to the increasing number of clients from all over the world.
