Since the financial crisis hit Italy, property market values have dropped significantly: the volume of the transactions decreased as well as the prices while the time to complete a sale increased. On the other hand, European financial recover (2015-2017) has also involved the Italian economy, so the real estate market.
House prices have shown important signals of stability and the volume of the transactions have raised up to 60% (2019).
Foreigners investing in the Italian property market have doubled in the last 3 years (2017-2019) contributing to make the Demand more heterogeneous and the market more dynamic.
COVID19 pandemic (2020) has affected the world ecomony significantly, leading all real estate markets both to a general reduction of the prices and transactions; banks have also taken on a more conservative attitude by granting a lower number of mortgages even if they still remain by far the most competitive in all Europe.
These market conditions represent the ideal scenario for cash-buyers looking for a stable investment in Italy.

1) Affordable market conditions (when buying)
