BUYING AND SELLING PROPERTIES

Who can buy a property in Italy? Most people can, although there are some country's citizens for whom it is not possible due to reasons of reciprocity. Please make further enquires before considering your next move. For every aspect of purchasing and selling of property in Italy, Pitcher & Flaccomio offers assistance with contracts, notary officials, English-speaking International lawyers and translators.

We focus on options located in Florence, as well as the rest of Tuscany. If you are thinking of buying or selling a property, Pitcher & Flaccomio is legally qualified to act as your agent through all negotiations and legal procedures.

Shortcuts






OUR GOAL :


Our goal is to find the right property for you to buy whether it be a castle, farm house or a flat in the centre of Firenze. When putting your property on the market, Pitcher and Flaccomio will hold your hand through the whole process.
UP


OUR METHOD :


We negotiate prices and arrange the mandatory technical certification on the condition of the property. On your behalf, we also follow through on the legal procedures entailed in dealing in property in Italy. Pitcher & Flaccomio acts in all respects in your best interests to assist you in buying or selling to your advantage.
UP


WHEN BUYING :


To retain Pitcher and Flaccomio as your agent, please let us know your general requirements, preferred price range, needs and desires. We firmly advise all our clients serious about buying a property in Italy, to come over for at least one visit to inspect what is on the market at that time. Florence is a small and sought after area. Properties come and go very rapidly. We can show you numerous available options in your chosen price range, and inspect and further report on those that most interest you.

BUYING AN INVESTMENT:
With the introduction of the common European currency (the Euro) at the beginning of 2002, it is our opinion that properties in general have increased in price. One positive aspect is that the introduction of the Euro has opened up the market not only for Europeans but for foreign investors who want to diversify their money. There are no longer borders and currency restrictions, and money can travel freely. A property in Firenze (Florence) can be a good investment as a rental proposition. For example, at present there are 47 foreign schools which brings a lot of students and faculty to accommodate.

WHEN SELLING :


Consultation for sales: we organise the best ways to advertise your property, and schedule all appointments. We also advise you (the owner) on what can be done to improve and accentuate the positive aspects of your property. We prefer to have exclusivity for a short period of time, as from our experience, it benefits the owner. Pitcher and Flaccomio are place in a position of responsibility for promoting the property through other agents (locally or abroad) and for the advertising campaign. The agency only represents properties that have complete documentation in order.
UP


FEES AND PRICING :


In Italy real-estate agents receive a commission from both the buyer and the seller. Generally, agents collect 3% from each side for a total of 6% commission. This percentage can be negotiated. When billing the buyer or the seller, Pitcher and Flaccomio must include an additional tax of 22% (added value tax) to the commission.
Consultation service: Pitcher & Flaccomio also consult for clients wanting an introduction to the area. This may include viewing of properties on their and other agent's lists, with the pros and cons discussed from a living or potential rental point of view. This is a service for clients who wish to assess the general suitability of purchasing property in Italy. The charge for this service is EUR 80.00 per hour, an amount that would subsequently be deducted from the commission should a property be purchased through our agency. Again when billing, Pitcher and Flaccomio must include an additional tax to this fee.
