Buy and Restore your house in Le Marche. . .
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
The ideal Marche property that ticks all your boxes is not always easy to find, but understanding the Italian way of restoration will help to remove some of those boxes from your list.
It‘s easy to find a house with stunning views. Often the advice is to tear it down and start from scratch which is not as extreme as you might think! This will result in a much better built house that meets modern requirements for foundations, damp proofing and insulation.
You can make your new home either bigger or smaller. You can incorporate new and innovative ideas and add many more traditional features, perhaps more than the property may have had to start with. It will almost certainly prove to be the most effective way to own a beautiful property in Le Marche. Find the perfect location and what remnants there are of the house will provide a good resource of traditional materials. . . stones, bricks, terracotta, beams and tiles.
To help bring your ideas to life we have a wealth of experienced and talented people to call on . . . designers, architects, project managers, landscapers, pool and interior designers.
We understand that your budget is crucial and set out to help you understand clearly what can be achieved within it by arranging detailed estimates for the building programme, introductions to reputable local builders, craftsmen and artisans with excellent credentials.
We also offer a help-line so that you can talk (in English) about your ideas and make sure that you are setting out on the right track.
HOW DO I START A PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT IN LE MARCHE?
Your budget – the first essential thing is to know how much your project will cost.
Often you will find that people will give an off-the-cuff square meter price for developments. These are rarely precise and do not factor in all the costs that are generally involved.
Property in Le Marche will, at an appropriate stage in your purchase, give you a complete overview of restructuring costs drafted by a professional using regional prices for building work. We would also include a guide to all the other expenses like taxes, professional fees, planning consents etc. We will arrange for you to talk to a project manager who can describe in detail the nature of the work to be undertaken. As a result your decisions will be much more informed and accurate.
WHY DO YOU NEED A PROJECT MANAGER?
If you cannot manage your Le Marche property development either due to lack of time, expertise or language then it is essential to have someone who can. “Time is money” and good project management will ensure that you stay ‘on budget’ and ‘on time’ throughout your project delivering the house you want with reassurance whilst saving you money.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD PROJECT MANAGER?
Speaking good Italian – the ability to successfully communicate the needs of their clients to everyone involved at every level and stage of the project is essential.
Awareness of Italian traditional building techniques, modern technologies and the latest trends in eco-building.
