As most of Europe struggles with falling property values, Italian property has maintained its prices.
The Bank of Italy looked at housing prices in 13 major cities and concluded that the values had remained steady in 2010, and even increased in some cities.
Experts cite Italy’s favorable property laws as a reason for stability during uncertain economic times. Agents are optimistic about the prospects for Italian properties. The Bank of Italy reports that 61% of the agents they surveyed expect the housing market to get even better in the next two years.
