Residential real estate in Italy

After struggling and reaching an all-time low in the years 2012 and 2013, the residential real estate market in Italy appears to have recovered in the following years, when it registered a positive trend. In 2018, all regions in the country, except for Basilicata in the South and Liguria in the North-West, recorded an increase in terms of transactions value in the sector. When looking at absolute numbers, Lombardy performed the best: the transactions’ value in the residential real estate sector in the region amounted to approximately 23 billion euros.

Lazio, Liguria, and Tuscany: the most expensive regions

Lombardy might be leading in terms of total transactions value, but it is not the region with the most valuable residential properties. In fact, calculations about the average price of transactions in the sector reveal that Lazio, Liguria and Tuscany have the most expensive properties in Italy. In 2018, all three regions registered an average transaction value of 210 thousand euros.
