Investing in Real Estate? Challenge Accepted!

A person maps his own route to success.

It's a really simple philosophy: if you want money, don't wait for it to come knocking on your door. Make your own fortune by going out, working hard, paying your dues, and striving hard to maximise your income.


One practical and logical option is to invest your earnings in Italian properties for sale. Currently, it's the trend amongst professionals to buy properties to secure their financial stability now and in the future.

Granted, it's not the easiest of jobs. First, you have to determine which property to buy and invest more time and money in developing it. Then, you have to choose whether to keep it stagnant, put it up on the market, or mark it as property for rent.

That's just the beginning. To help you with this journey, here's a blow by blow about what you need to do:


There's certain anxiety among first-time buyers when it comes to choosing a property for sale in Liguria, Italy. Should you go for the pretty but expensive one or the cheaper one that's in dire need of renovation? It's a dilemma that cannot be answered by a simple yes or no.

But then again, it doesn't have to be like a calculus homework. Here's a criteria to help you spot the perfect place:

Location – Other than considering the view, take note of the 'progress' of the community. Are skyrise buildings soon to be erected? Is there a sales boom in business? Is there a fresh horde of employees each year? Are there established hotels and country homes in the area? Refer to public records if you're not sure and figure out if the 'locale' is really worth an investment.

Features – Italian properties for sale have lots of things in common: terrific architecture and design, durable materials, an eye for detail and space, etc. With these impressive array of options, you only have to choose which ones suit your taste or the needs of your family.

Market value – How much is the appraisal value of the property? Are the houses/villas in the neighbourhood priced the same or less? Consult an appraiser or even a real estate attorney to know the legalities and necessary licenses needed before you can have your very own property in Tuscany.

After considering the criteria above, look for favourable finance options that fit your lifestyle and income capacity. Even if you've saved a huge portion of your income from years of working, it may still not be enough to complete the purchase. At best, you can use your savings for down payment and renovation expenses (should you find it necessary to make a few changes to the house).


Congratulations on your purchase!

After buying your very own property in Umbria, you're now on the right path towards financial salvation. But the fun doesn't stop there.

You still have obligations that need to be fulfilled to truly maximise your investment.

1. Decide whether you'll use it for personal needs or you'll rent it out to interested tenants. At this stage in your ownership, it's better to turn your property into a house for rent rather than for sale. There's still so much you have to know about real estate matters and being a landlord/landlady will teach you a lot.

2. Research. Do this over and over again until you have, at the very least, basic knowledge on real estate transactions. Read about contracts, licenses and permits, landlord obligations, etc. to become an effective property owner, if not sooner than later.

3. Practice. Put the property up online and advertise it on social media. Place ads on yellow pages and newspapers to really maximise your audience. Remember, there are bound to be mistakes along the way, so be prepared. Don't be discouraged if you commit one or two, because those experiences will teach you what the real estate world is truly like.

Lastly, be open minded about purchasing more properties in Lake Garda. If you succeeded in your first try, then there's no reason why you shouldn't go for more, right?

Final Words

You should never fear the concept of investing. Although it seems complicated and tough to conquer, you simply need the right mindset and the dedication to make your endeavour a success.

Like what Yoda said, “Do or do not, there is no try.”
