Dear house buyers,
Before buying in Salento, I had already covered a great deal of territory. I had scoured Tuscany, Umbria, Naples and its surrounds, Sicily and Sardinia. I had seen houses that pleased me. Sometimes the prices had been pretty attractive but there was always something that stopped me from making the fatal, final plunge pen in hand!
Coming to Salento, I understood it was here that I was meant to buy! The charm and friendliness of the people struck me immediately. The beauty of the sea, at least the equivalent of anywhere else in Italy. The original and diverse gastronomy. The olive grove landscapes. The rocky cliffs plunging down to deep blue sea. The stone buildings. The wonderful Baroque town centres. The extraodinary climate from very hot in the Summer to mild in the Winter, everlasting southern sun.
It is not an easy step to take as a foreigner buying in southern Italy. One often has the impression there are no written rules. Much is done in the blink of an eye, with a handshake and a smile.
RealSalento.com has been created by Gabriella Alfieri and myself to cater for people who want to buy in Salento but are worried about confronting the complications of buying in southern Italy, problems of language but also cultural and practical or legal issues. We are estate agents with a difference. We have contacts in all spheres: notaries, surveyors, architects, builders etc… We will advise as best as we can and as honestly as we can.
We propose a range of property but, as you know, properties come and go. As much as is possible we would like to understand your wishes and then try and find the right property. Tailor-made searches are always the best. For our services we will ask of you between 2% and 5% of the vendor's price.
We strongly feel Salento is now one of the best regions in which to invest in Italy. A region with high tourist potential and resale value. Now is the time before it's too late!
Gabriella can also act as translator/interpreter at an hourly or daily rate. This could be money well spent!
Please do not hesitate to and come and discover this wonderful land!
All the best and hoping to see you soon…
