Fano (Pesaro and Urbino), 20 November 2020 – “After years of growth there is a discount of the percentage of purchases per investment, which in 2018 and 2019 had reached peaks of 17.9%, while now it has dropped to 16.8%. The slight braking is linked to the uncertainty generated by the emergency Covid which slowed down both the sales of types to be rented and the purchases of solutions to create B & Bs and guest houses “.
This is what emerges from an analysis by the Tecnocasa Group’s Research Department which analyzed the trading carried out through affiliated agencies in Italy in the first half of 2020. The picture is completed by 77.6% of first home sales and 5.6% of holiday homes. A photograph of the real estate market in which Fano is perfectly reflected.
“Released from the lockdown – he explains Emanuele Echino Fano’s referent for Tecnorete – there was a great resumption of the purchase and sale of the first house, because many understood that the one they lived in was not the right one. The investment, on the other hand, was slowing down, but in recent times, with eco-bonuses and the fear of capital, this sector has also moved: there is a great demand for single houses to be renovated, in order not to keep the money in the bank “.
For these reasons they still hold i prices of the new (from over 3 thousand euros per square meter in the historic center to 2 thousand in Rosciano and 1700 in Cuccurano and Carrara) while those of second-hand vehicles that travel between 1200 and 2100 euros per square meter are lowering. But what worries real estate agents most are the bureaucratic difficulties increased to the nth degree by the Coronavirus.
“The long wave of the post lockdown that had led to a greater turmoil in the real estate market is diminishing – reveals Claudio Abbondanzieri of Re / Max – and in the last ten days there has been fear of the new lockdown that has blocked the request for sales. The biggest concerns are related to timing, because there are biblical times to get documents from the Municipality, they give you appointments every two or three weeks to access the urban planning documents. Same thing goes for mortgages. All times have lengthened “.
The buyer medium it is those looking for their first home, especially young couples even if in recent times there have also been investors from the hinterland looking for a house by the sea.
“This year there was a more concrete interest in the first house than in the past – he says Paola Sanchioni by Marinella Casa – when they were looking for a house without having clear ideas. It undoubtedly influenced the lockdown. Now they are looking for more comfortable houses, with an open or terrace. As regards investments, however, they have been facilitated by bonuses and the request is for single houses to be restored “.
“Since last week everything has slowed down – he adds Paola Cantoro of Attika – and these days no one comes anymore for fear of Covid. After the lockdown there was a great demand, but in the end there was little or nothing, because people are under the illusion of obtaining financing from banks but without permanent work, they won’t give you the mortgage. And so I work a lot with rents. “The music is the same, in all agencies, mainly concerned with commercials.” It is the biggest problem we have – everyone says -. You can understand that there is a great death in activity by taking a walk in the center. On Corso Matteotti there are more than 20 vacant properties. “Rental prices range from 20 to 40 euros per square meter and for Abbondanzieri they are too high.” I think the owners need to meet the market by lowering the prices otherwise it doesn’t come out “.
