London, United Kingdom, December 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Italy's lakes region, including the likes of Como and Maggiore, has for centuries drawn visitors, with some of the country’s most sought-after apartments and villas located here.
Now Homes and Villas Abroad
, one of the best-established Italy real estate companies, can announce it is significantly widening its portfolio of apartments and villas that it offers in this area in response to demand from clients who wish to buy here.
To this end the company has entered into partnerships with a number of local estate agents to market their properties to a broader, worldwide client base.
Homes and Villas Abroad is a complete package provider for people investing in Italy and has also engaged new bilingual property specialists in the lakes region to ensure it offers as tailor-made a service as possible to its clients, drawn from across the world.
To date, languages that the company can accommodate are Russian, French, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, German and English.
Marketing director Simon Llewellyn explained: "Demand for purchases in this part of Italy has stayed solid, in particular with Russian clients, with homes offering a lake view naturally being most important on their wishlist.
"This was a part of Italy where we already had covered, but we chose find further partner companies to assist us in meeting increasing demand.
"It is one of the country’s most alluring areas but is not as out of reach financially as most people imagine; our prices begin at about US$130,000 for a one-bedroom condo.
"Despite the likes of George Clooney, Jose Mourinho and Sir Richard Branson having lavish mansions here, it offers something within virtually every budget."
Northern Italy’s main lakes are Como, Garda, Maggiore, Iseo and Endine.
Getting in and out of the area is very convenient, thanks to the half a dozen international airports in close proximity.
The closest is just over 25 minutes away in Lugano, just over the Swiss border. There are three others in Milan, all within a 80-minute radius, while the final two are slightly further out in Brescia and Verona.
Homes and Villas Abroad advertises more than 4,500 Italian homes from nearly 200 real estate firms. It provides clients with a one-stop solution to purchasing, including a bespoke property search service, handling the legal documentation in a purchase and sourcing trusted professionals such as notaries, surveyors and lawyers.
