There are a lot of foreign property buyers who are buying homes for more than 30 years already. They started by buying old stone houses and farmhouses that had been left by farmers who had transferred to big cities in order to find job and a better life. These foreign property buyers will restore the homes in order for it to get more value. Today, foreign property investors will buy homes across the whole country so you might be asking if there are some good bargains left or is there still some properties that are waiting to be restored completely by other property buyers.
There are indeed some properties that you can still buy. You will not only find this property on certain regions but there are a lot of towns and villages in the country where you can find a lot of properties. They are called the ghost towns.
In a lot of cases the ghost towns are called that way because of plagues, earthquakes, or some other reasons that is why the people moved away from these towns and leave their old homes because they want to rebuild their lives and homes in a better place. So the ghost towns can offer to the potential buyers is a medieval, stunning, and a lot of charm and history empty town that is closer to a modern and comfortable living town.
There are a lot of good examples when it comes to ghost towns that were restored or still in the process of being restored. One of the most famous ghost towns is the one found in Sicily. The mayor of the town announced that the homes that were damaged by an earthquake in 1968 were offered for the price of EUR1. The deal includes the property buyers to restore the property based on the original features and to look for a local restoration company that will do the restoration.
There is another town that was restored located in the same country. The town stayed abandoned for many decades until the new restoration project lead to the great town today that provides homes to a lot of property buyers and visitors from all across the world.
The ghost towns in the country are estimated to be about 400 abandoned villages that are spread all over the country. Even if most of the time the ghost towns are known to be more of a problem rather than an opportunity by the local administrations, there might be some changes about to happen. But because of the good example given by the famous ghost towns in the country, there is now a new way to consider accommodations no more as vertical hotels but as horizontal hotels are spreading through the village.
You just have to expect that the authorities in the country will consider the restoration of the ghost towns since they still belong to the roots of their culture. There are also a lot of business opportunities in the ghost towns. That is the reason why the contribution of the foreign property buyers is important to give new meaning to these ghost towns.
