As the famous saying states it:"All roads lead to Rome" and this exceptional city has a lot to offer thanks to its 28 centuries of history. Rome, the capital of Italy, is situated in the Latium region, in the center of the country and next to the Tiber river. Nicknamed the "Eternal City", Rome is also the capital of Catholicism as it includes the enclave Vatican (the headquarters of the papacy), which has been an independent state since 1929.Rome is truly an open sky museum by itself as it has preserved a true architectural cohesion. Antique temples and amphitheaters are parts of the town planning. The countless churches are testament to the early stages of Christianity, along with the sumptuous Renaissance Palaces, the fountains and squares as well as the medieval little streets: Rome is a city where all styles stand alongside. There is no disruption due to industrialization or modernism as the city succeeded in retaining all its former beauty. Thanks to its extraordinary heritage, its sunny and tempered weather, the capital of Italy attracts millions of travelers every year. However, Rome is also a lively and vibrant city, where the Dolce Vita way of life prevails.
The Rome real-estate market represents, with the one of Milan, almost 70% of the Italian housing sales. In 2006, the residential market reached its peak regarding the annual sales but due to the 2007 crisis, this market was considerably impacted. Since 2014, the sector has started to rise and this increase may stabilize over the years. This growth is favoured thanks to low interest rates on mortgage loans. Besides, since 2008, prices have been lower, which is a major advantage for investors. Despite the previous elements, the Rome real-estate market is particularly attractive for foreign investors. It is the perfect time to invest and realize a nice capital gain in the next few years.
