The Property Market
Generally speaking prices for property in Puglia are more favourable than elsewhere in southern Italy and with the advent of low cost airlines demand for property is soaring. However, unlike the popular regions of Tuscany and Umbria for example, Puglia has never been a 'fashionable' region of Italy and this is why property prices are affordable and the abundance of real estate available for sale in Italy's Puglia is impressive.
Accessibility is not a problem with two airports, Bari and Brindisi receiving regular direct flights from across the UK and nowhere in Puglia is more than an hour or so drive away from an airport.
A trullo in need of renovation is considered one of the better buys in Puglia and such a property starts from around 40,000 to 50,000 Euros. These trulli are exceptionally in demand by investors because they know that the amount spent on renovation will immediately be added to the property in value terms when complete, and the property will become easy to let out to the tourist market or to resell on to those looking for a unique property in the sun.
Alternatively there are many town houses and villas for sale in Puglia along the coast and in Puglia's pretty medieval villages and towns, and now some new developments are beginning to take shape offering properties for sale to the second home hunter or retiree in search of that perfect getaway. Quality off plan apartments start from around Euro 90,000 and a villa for sale in Puglia with pool and close to the sea will cost from around Euro 200,000.
