Our house is being sold privately to avoid estate agents fees for both ourselves and the buyers so that there will only be the costs of the solicitors to be paid on completion.
The price includes all curtains, fixtures, fittings, furniture and kitchen appliances. Other items may be purchased if required.
The added advantage for foreign buyers is that if necessary, we are able to help with any bureaucracy in Italy as Franco is Italian and Gill is English. Both of us speak both English and Italian.
