How to Buy a Villa in Tuscany

So you just finished reading Frances Mayes's Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy, and now you want your own romantic villa in this charming region of Italy. Well, it's not that simple. Buying any home is a complicated process, but buying one in a foreign country is a recipe for disaster unless you do your homework. Here's the assignment.

1. Decide exactly where in Tuscany you want to buy your villa based on careful research over the course of many trips to the region. The most common complaint among foreign homeowners about buying a website with all the villas in Tuscany is that they didn't do enough research and regret the location they chose. Where are the local airports and train stations? Is the area accessible in harsh winters? What are the locals like? Make sure that you love the locale and your neighbors just as much as the house.

2. Figure out the exact type of villa you want and how much property you're willing to take on. Consider how much land you want to maintain, who will maintain it while you're away, and how much living space you need to be comfortable.

3. If your real estate agent asks, once you've found your dream villa and you're ready to make an offer. Although this means irrevocable proposal of purchase, it's not a binding document and doesn't mean you've reserved the villa even though there's been an offer price and a written acceptance by the seller. This piece of paper is only enforceable between the seller and the real estate agent.

4. The first of two binding contracts you enter with the seller once you've agreed on a price. The compromise is basically a proof of intention to buy the villa and is binding in a court of law. It includes information such as the seller and the buyer, description of the property to be sold, the price, and the date of the final contract, or rogito. Once you and the seller have signed the compromise, you are committed by law to the transfer of the property. You may still withdraw, but at the risk of losing your deposit.
