The year 2020 will certainly remain in history also due to its complementary effects to the health crisis, marking a sharp and sudden break with the past. A radical change that will have repercussions in the years to come, in the economy, in society, and also in the real estate market.
The lockdown period marked a turning point in our vision of “home”, giving greater prominence to outdoor spaces, larger surfaces, appliances, and even the location of the house. We are already witnessing the realization of what were the forecasts hypothesized by sector experts based substantially on two basic aspects:
1 shifting buyers’ attention and priorities to the characteristics of the home;
2 the prompt resumption of trading after the inevitable sharp drop in the lockdown.
Other very interesting phenomena are, on the one hand, the escape from the city, especially for those who have the opportunity to work from home, and on the other, the response of cities with interventions and projects aimed at making cities more liveable and less polluted. These unprecedented evolutionary scenarios will inevitably lead to an increase in the vitality of the real estate market in the coming years, where some areas and some types of real estate will be increasingly in demand, to the detriment of others.
Our territory of Mount Amiata and Val d’Orcia, with its infinite landscape, naturalistic, cultural, gastronomic riches, for the quality of life in general, has all the credentials to attract not only the tourists of the week or weekends, but also (and above all) to attract new residents: people who make a choice of life, leaving the city, to come and experience the serenity of an area of incredible beauty.
