The aspects to take into account when buying a house at the lake

The charme of Lago Maggiore is evergreen and last summer the trend has confirmed the value of this lucky land, nestled among lakes and mountains. Many Italians, as well as people coming from abroad, have spent their holidays here, in some of the most renowned towns.

And what happened to the real estate market? Its value has not changed. Buying a home at the Lake is still a good deal, but there are different aspects to be taken into account, especially if you aim at purchasing your dream home. Let's analyse them.


Expectations and needs are important elements, when it comes to buying a house. So, in the process of choosing the property, it is essential to define the reasons behind this choice. 

Choosing among the houses for sale Lago Maggiore offered by Engel & Völkers means realising a dream, made of villas with pool and lakeview and houses with wonderful gardens.

If you are looking for a holiday home, then we suggest you to go for a house with a relaxing outdoor space, perfect to spend time with friends, and to choose a location both near the Lake and  not far from the liveliest towns in the area. This will add delight to your holidays. But if you are looking for a solution to rent out, then your focus should be on the location and you could also choose among smaller apartments and homes.
