Default thanks and would welcome help

Might be easier to communicate using pms which I'll now be able to do - I think. I'll try pm-ing you now. Thanks.

We bought our old house last year and have done a roof and stonework. We've also had interesting experiences with builders and agencies etc. Happy to share if you wish to pm me.

Hi,
I came upon this forum after a search on buying property in Italy. We too are thinking of moving to Abruzzo and are visiting next week (hubbie works in a school, so we can only do school holidays).

We're not sure whether to go for a holiday home, perhaps something to renovate, but structurally sound. Our other option is to wait a few years and move permanantly, buying something bigger and needing no work. Really not sure.

Are there any sites you can point me to where I can find out more on the perils and pitfalls? We used to live in Rome, many years ago now, so I am very wary. I am also wary of using an agency, but am guessing this is a bit unfounded as things must have moved on and Abruzzo isn't Rome. Advice appreciated!

We are also thinking of training in TEFL. Does anyone know if this is worth doing? I wouldn't expect this to pay the bills, just to keep us busy and bring in a few extra Euro's.

Sorry there's so many questions, but it's all been buzzing around looking for an outlet! Thanks

Hi there can you share your experience with me as well, as I will be in Italy in September, looking for a place to buy, and would live to hear about your experiences with the agencies. Thanks Bonnie1.

Hi,TEFL is worth doing,but as you may know already, the courses vary,and some are of little value.Go for a CELTA course,it takes months rather than days but it is highly regarded and well worth the outlay in time and money. Best wishes.

Default Visit to Abruzzo - More Detail

My wife and I are planning a trip to Abruzzo to visit and look at property in Dec/Jan. We are searching the web for homes to get an idea of what's out there now. So far, VERY impressed! I would appreciate any insight around the relo experience to Abruzzo from the US. As mentioned, we are planning a trip in late December to look around. My wife is a teacher in the states so we are restricted to travel time slots (Christmas and Summer).

Many thanks ... Randy

Should we get the services of HousearoudItaly etc. or can anybody give me feedback in the process they have followed and how they found their own Notary, Geometra?
Thanks ( A VERY EXCITED)

We are just about to finalize the deed for a house in Ofena, Abruzzo, beginning September...so we have all the contacts...but also the frustrations !
Will be happy to stay in touch. Joseph and Vee DeMeyer
