What is Included in Our Packages?
Standard Property Search and Viewing Package:
(Offering search and viewing assistance.) If the properties you wish to view are in more than a 15km radius of one another we charge a nominal sum of €30.00 towards costs of driving you from one property to another (unfortunately travel costs for Estate Agents are not tax deductable in Italy), or if the itinerary you choose covers more than 150 kms in travel in one day we charge €50.00. If you are happy to drive the consultant in your car from and to our office there is no charge.
