But for investors who can see past the gloomy headlines and want to make an investment in Italian real estate, Scalea is by far and away a fantastic opportunity. The town boasts all the usual features one would find at seaside retreats that are more popular with overseas tourists – a glorious sandy beach, clear azure waters and a temperature averaging a warm 50.5 degrees in January, rising to 78.5 in the hottest months of the year. Even October has typical... Read More

Throughout my years of inspecting, I have learned that all new homes will have their defects of one kind or another, regardless of the quality of construction or the integrity of the builder. This is because human imperfection prevents anything as large and as complex as a home from being constructed flawlessly.

I hear a number of theories expressed as to why we are experiencing this new way of beginning relationships. The beginning may be a bit detached as though we are, client and agent, circling one another to see if this might be a mutually beneficial, stress free (a delusion regardless of the basis for the relationship-we are after all...

If you own a home, there is an odd phenomenon, totally unscientific in nature but completely true from my personal experience. As an agent I find that neighborhoods go through selling cycles every 5 to 7 years, which works in terms of average appreciation rates in a normal healthy market. This selling cycle is a bit inconvenient in our current market. Here has been my experience as a homeowner.
