The Casa.it observatory has recently released data on the Italian real estate market, referring to the first half of 2016, which sees the demand for housing increased by 2.6%, despite the stabilization of residential property prices (-0, 1%).

Florence is the second capital for growth in real estate demand, after Bologna : with a positive + 0.8%, the city is also the fourth Italian city in the ranking of the average cost per square meter (€ 3,350 / sqm).

The climate of general uncertainty weighs therefore still not a little on the purchase decisions, but a first important signal arrives just from the capital cities that until last year had recorded significant drops in price (-1.6% compared to 2015, -15, 3% compared to 2006). Furthermore, the growth in demand for real estate consolidates the positive reading and serves as a valuable indicator for assessing the health of the market.
