@  Murri55 : (13 January 2015 - 08:26 AM) sorry, bad editing: worked w. Tecnocasa a big chain, but bought w. a small local guy. For sale of my Umbrian house I changed a clause regarding the first payment to the realtor: normally they ask that part of the downpayment goes directly to the realtor: I opted out of this, for payment to realtor in full at time of closing. I did this to insure that the sale would be followed through w. the agents help. I also did not sign an exclusive.
@  Murri55 : (13 January 2015 - 01:06 AM) claredon: when I purchased in Puglia I  with Tecnocasa, (very on the ball and American style) but purchased from a local guy who was fine. The sale was straight forward, but I had had experience in Umbria so I knew what to expect.  I will say that when I signed my sales contract I dictated some of my terms and they were OK with it...You can find this info on the web. However they are many unscrupulous realtors and the laws in Italy are not as strong in Italy for the protection of the client. Sales contracts in general though are simple, one page affairs. The notary by the way is very important in the sales process but the buyer chooses them. They can however screw up your sale. I had to fire one when I bought in Nardó, then the next one worked really well to push the sales through.
@  Admin - Colleen : (09 January 2015 - 10:40 AM) But also uses publicity forums such as Prime Location
@  Admin - Colleen : (09 January 2015 - 10:39 AM) He also has other partners in Puglia who have scruples
@  Admin - Colleen : (09 January 2015 - 10:37 AM) Not positive of course but we all have differing experiences. I shy away once burnt.
@  ChrisC : (08 January 2015 - 10:45 PM) Don't know what problems Colleen has had with Ligorio Immobiliare but we used them and they were absolutely fine. Still use them for building work.
@  clareden : (07 January 2015 - 03:51 PM) hi Colleen, thanks for the info does your partner advertise all over Europe? Where in Cisternino is his office? Is there anyway of sending an e mail to you to find out more on Ligorio? many thanks
@  alfonzo76 : (07 January 2015 - 03:34 PM) villa for sale in martina
@  Billy : (06 January 2015 - 02:06 PM) What are the current tax rates Colleen?
@  Admin - Colleen : (06 January 2015 - 11:42 AM) If you want a good agent, not based in Martina, but Cisternino, try my partner Francesco Lanzilotta at info@realestatecisternino.com. He covers areas outside Cisternino too. He speaks English if that helps. I have my own thoughts on Ligorio but perhaps best said in private
@  Admin - Colleen : (06 January 2015 - 11:40 AM) Agent fee is 3% plus VAT
@  clareden : (06 January 2015 - 09:15 AM) hi there, just wondered if anyone had any experience of contracts and selling a house in puglia? what is the normal agent fee percentage? anybody know a good agent around martina franca? finally anybody used ligorio immobiliare in san michele? many grazie
@  clareden : (05 January 2015 - 08:13 AM) Auguri tutti
