Abruzzo Casa Italy with a base in Pescara Italy, is specialized in helping international clients with finding their dream house in Abruzzo Italy. Originally from the Netherlands, we understand the specific needs of foreign house-buyers. We have high standard services, and we understand your needs. Our people speak (native) English, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, French and/or Russian. So you can easily communicate in your own language! We know the way in Italy, we know the rules and procedures, and we can get things done.

Why buying a house in Italy is different....

The buying process in Italy is slightly different then in "other" countries. The main differences are:

  • a bid is an offer to buy, when the bid is accepted, you are obliged to buy the house. Mostly there is a "caparra", about 20% of the price, you have to pay directly as an insurance for the buyer. If you do not buy later on, you will lose your caparra.
  • there are different standards for construction, depending of the age of the house. International people are mostly used to a check according to the most recent standards, instead of a check to the "older" standards. Allways do a check if your dream house is appropriate for your desired use, regarding permissions in catastre, city hall, and with quality of construction and installations.
  • There is a difference in permissions and categories between cadastre and city hall. In catastre a house could have a "living" categorie, but it could be without "living" permission or destination according to municipio rules. 
  • The houses are usually divided in different parts in the cadastre, with different destinations and categories. Allways check the right ownership.
  • Check for ground lease and right of use, to be sure you really become the owner of the ground and house you buy!
  • Allways do a legal check, when there is an other owner (in legacies untill the 6th grade), and the owner does not sign the contract, they remain the right to the full property of the house. Also after you made your payment and think you bought the house...
  • The real estate agents in Italy work as independent agents, meaning officially they are neutral in selling. Therefore they ask commission from the seller AND of the buyer. When you go to Italy and want to visit a house, the moment you have contact with an agency they are entitled to charge you buying commission. 
  • Because the agents have an interest in selling a house to you, we recommend you to work with a specialized buying consultancy agent who is there to serve your needs. 
  • Abruzzo Casa has an Italian licenze for being an official estate agent, therefore we know what to look for and what to check for you, and therefore we can be dedicated to serve your needs. Because we have the official real estate licenze in Italy, we can be your official buying agent in Italy. Meaning you only pay the buying fee (consulting fee) to Abruzzo Casa and not to the selling agent.

Our services and prices

We understand that buying a house is not a daily routine. For that you want to look around, compare houses, and do a proper investigation of the house you are interested in. In Italy, when you do a bid that is accepted, YOU JUST BOUGHT THE HOUSE!! So it is very very important, that you are very well prepared and that you are absolutely certain you want to buy a specific house, BEFORE you do a BID!!

Therefore, we have split our services into pieces, so you can start low profile with your investigation, and go on and on step by step checking if everything is ok, what are the additional costs, thinking it over and over until you are certain you want to do an offer.. When you finally buy the house you are interested in, all the investigation costs we made specific for the house you are buying (*) are included in the buying commission fee. If you do not buy the house, you only pay for the work, services and activities we did for you in your house orientation proces.
