Buying property in Italy is often associated with living la dolce vita, the sweet life. Those who take the step to become Italian property investors can’t be blamed for doing so as Italy really is a great country that not only is affordable, but has friendly locals, great food, amazing vistas and decent enough weather.
Foreign nationals have similar rights to Italian citizens when it comes to property buying except for one thing.
- Italians pay 4% property purchase registration tax and
- foreign nationals pay 11% property purchase registration tax
