Why do more and more people want to buy a second home?

If the last 2 years have taught us something it’s that having a plan B is certainly favourable. For many, this plan B is the purchase of a second home by the seaside or mountain location where it is possible to work from home (smartworking) or study, but also can be turned into a source of income.

The data from the national real estate observatory 2022, released by Fimaa-Confcommercio, showed an increase in the purchasing of a second home in 2021 by 41% compared to the previous year. In particular, there was an increase of 43.4% in seaside towns, 35.0% for mountain homes and 29.6% for lakeside housing.

A second home as an investment

Investing in real estate is an ever-growing trend in Italy. According to research presented by Sole24Ore, for 14% of Italians, the main source of income comes from renting a second house; for 35% it is the second highest income.

Offering a substantial quality of life, a seaside town like ours is not difficult to find a tenant who is interested in short or long-term rentals. Gaeta e le città limitrofe che affacciano sul golfo sono, sempre di più, meta di turisti che decidono di vivere in queste zone anche oltre la stagione estiva, come dei veri local! In addition, thanks to the presence of several training center’s, winter rentals in Gaeta have experienced a strong increase.

Second home to change your lifestyle

Many people opt to purchase a second home to change their lifestyle by completely detaching themselves from city living and surrounding themselves with nature, even if only for a few months of the year. After the pandemic, awareness emerged of how important it is to have a home with a green space which acts as an extension of the house. There are also those who decided to completely upend their lives by living in the countryside and cultivate (literally) new passions and hobbies by living away from the chaos of city living.

The Superbonus 110% for second homes

Those who plan to buy a second home can also take advantage of the 110% Superbonus . If the house is in need of renovations concerning anti-seismic measures and energy efficiency, as long as it falls within the required parameters, you can take advantage of tax concessions in question.
