By cutting promised property taxes on primary residences first signs of recovery not before 2016
A support is the Fiaip that in his memo on the economy semi-annual snapshot of the ups and downs of the housing market that Italian city, once again struggling to recover, despite the good signs of an overall increase in demand + 5%, and a record increase in ‘ last quarter of the same mortgage demand that drives the purchase.
For the Study Centre Fiaip in Italy, we can not yet talk about recovery of a market that, although supported by a series of positive economic factors (devaluation of the euro, oil at record lows, reset the cost of money) recorded positive quarters alternating to negative quarters: prices continue unlike other European countries to fall by 0.8% on a quarterly basis, and approximately 5% year on year, registering a decline of the value of the dwelling more consistent across all EU countries, made except for Greece. Back in the positive area the number of sales + 3% compared to a slow stabilization of prices.
With further strong growth in June for mortgages is strengthened the recovery to pre-crisis levels so that the change in total recorded in the first half of 2015 showed a significant increase compared to the same period in 2014.
