You know you're in the right job when you enjoy what you're doing... and what's not to enjoy about this new listing: a 4 bedroom country house with large swimming pool in the Maremma area of Tuscany, minutes from the seaside... and many local wineries to send the guests to!

The Catasto in brief
The Italian land registry system explained in brief for those interested in knowing how a property title search works in Italy. Many will be surprised to know there are actually two separate records systems, one containing title (proof of ownership) information and the other property information for tax purposes. Add to the complexity a bit of naming confusion, all for a bit of good summer fun! (In English too)

At the end of 2014 the Italian Parliament codified the Rent to Buy (affitto con riscatto) home financing scheme into law, aiming to provide an addition stimulus to the housing market. The program, aka rent to own, allows a potential buyer to rent a home for a number of years with an option to purchase it at a set price at the end of the term. Rental payments are part rental fee and part installments toward the purchase price.

At the end of the period, 10 years max, the potential buyer pays the outstanding balance... or walks away. There are some edge cases where this type of financing may be an attractive solution to buyers and sellers alike, but they are probably few and far between, e.g. when a buyer expects an inheritance a few years from now and the seller cannot otherwise find a buyer. My take on "Rent to Buy", also available in English. Buona lettura!

Work as a Real Estate Broker is much like that as a soda jerk in an ice cream shop: there's a strong temptation to keep the goods for oneself! Sound a bit far-fetched? Consider this new listing: a renovated apartment partially carved out of the tufo stone of Pitigliano, an old Etruscan town in the Maremma area of Tuscany. The thermal baths of Saturnia are nearby, not to mention the sea and other jewels of the Maremma. As if that weren't enough, it is priced to sell at just €100,000. Interested? Don't dilly-dally, I just might keep it for myself!

I understand the life of a real estate agent seems easy, perhaps even glamorous. After all, what's not to like about appraising property, meeting people and sharing your passion for properties you've seen? Like most occupations, there are also many less glamorous tasks. One is working with a seller to insure they've got all of a property's documentation in order so a sale won't be delayed, and a buyer frustrated, due to missing documentation. If you're selling property in Italy, this check list is for you – disponibile anche in Italiano! (If you're buying, this is what you should expect to see before you sign a contract… and why). Questions? Don't hesitate to reach out!
