Our Story

Spadafora Realty, formerly known as Invest in Italy, was founded in 2020 with the mission of streamlining the buying process for foreign buyers and investors in Italy. The combination of language barriers, property misrepresentation, and Italian bureaucracy that endures today impedes the smooth transition of real estate for many foreign buyers.

After living in eight different countries working in asset management and real estate development, Matteo Spadafora wanted his home country and those eager to claim a piece of la dolce vita to benefit from the expertise he gained abroad. He understood the significance for investors of capitalizing on the country’s infinite potential for real estate investment and development.

Joined by his wife, Heather whose southern American charm adds unique perspective and insight for foreign buyers, the duo have formed an incredible team to serve buyers and sellers throughout Italy’s 20 regions.

8 Tips Everyone Should Know when buying a property in Italy.

By Matteo Berloffa Spadafora

Italy offers a rich cultural heritage and boasts diverse climates, cuisine, and geographic landscapes across its 20 regions. Investing in Italian real estate is advantageous beyond just its lifestyle factors, and extends to tax benefits, market appreciation, and the incredible deals on historic estates that cannot be found anywhere else.

Buying a property in Italy as a foreigner is a straightforward process with the right guidance. Spadafora Realty offers expertise in navigating the complex real estate market and legal system, from the initial search to the final purchase and beyond.

Obtaining a mortgage in Italy as a foreign buyer is indeed possible. There are only a few banks in the country who grant mortgages to non-residents and Spadafora Realty will help you facilitate this process.

A real estate agency works with both buyers and sellers to list and sell properties, while a property finder will as its name implies assist buyers in locating properties listed with agencies.  

The main difference between the two is that real estate agencies are licensed professionals who perform all the fiduciary responsibilities for the transaction in accordance with the Italian Civil Code, and in turn charge a commission. By law, property finders are not permitted to claim a commission and therefore charge a separate, additional fee for their services.

A buyer’s agreement ensures that both parties, the buyer and Spadafora Realty, are committed to the buyer’s goals and interests in securing real estate in Italy. It clarifies the terms of service, fees, and the scope of work.

The buyer’s agreement is needed for the Real Estate Agency to work freely knowing that the client has serious intentions to proceed.

Each buyer’s unique lifestyle factors and goals for their investment play a role in determining the best Italian region. Popular choices include well-known regions like Tuscany, Lombardy, Puglia, and Sicily due to their unique blend of culture, beauty, and investment opportunities.

Some municipalities offer properties for 1 euro to revitalize rural areas, but these come with hefty renovation conditions and set timelines, according to the municipality where the property is located. In most cases, Spadafora Realty encourages buyers to purchase profitable investment opportunities that do not require structural renovations.

Italy offers various tax incentives for high-net worth individuals, retirees, self-employed professionals, and exemptions on capital gain taxes and property taxes. To learn more about these benefits, contact us today!
