Real estate group Homes & Villas Abroad begins marketing cooperation with real estate agencies in the Italian lakes district
[ClickPress, Wed Dec 26 2012] The lakes of northern Italy have for long mesmerised visitors – Lord Shelley and Henry James to name just two – with some of the country's most appealing real estate to be found here.
Now Homes and Villas Abroad, one of the major property in Italy companies, is pleased to announce it is expanding its range of properties that it offers in this area in response to demand from its client base who wish to purchase real estate here.
To this end it has forged partnerships with several realtors in the area to advertise their properties to a wider, international client base.
Homes and Villas Abroad is a complete package provider for clients buying in Italy and has also hired a team of bilingual property specialists in the lakes region to ensure it offers as bespoke a service as possible to its customers, drawn from across the world.
Languages that the company can accommodate are English, Italian, Russian, German, French, Spanish and Norwegian.
Marketing manager Simon Llewellyn explained: "Demand for property in this region has remained solid, in particular with Russian clients, with real estate offering a lake view understandably being a prime requirement on their wishlist.
"The lakes is a location where we were already active, but we decided to find additional partners to assist us in meeting greater demand.
"It is one of the continent’s most in-demand areas but is not as expensive as most people think; our prices begin at around US$125,000 for a one-bedroom condo.
"Despite the likes of George Clooney, airline tycoon Sir Richard Branson and Donatella Versace having pricy villas here, there is something within the reach of practically every budget."
Northern Italy's main lakes are Como, Garda, Maggiore, Iseo and Endine.
Getting in and out of the area is very convenient, thanks to the six airports nearby. The nearest is 30 minutes away in Lugano, just over the Swiss border. There are three others in Milan, all within a 1hr 30min radius, while the final two are slightly further away in Brescia and Verona.
Homes and Villas Abroad advertises 5,000 Italian properties from some 200 real estate firms. It offers clients a one-stop solution to purchasing, including a bespoke property search service, handling the legal documentation involved and sourcing professionals such as builders, surveyors, architects and notaries.
The company offers a wide range of properties across Italy, including in the Tuscan countryside; beach villas and apartments in Calabria; affordable Abruzzo homes; and stunning Amalfi sea view villas.
