A selection of the most viewed properties for sale on idealista in Italy the first trimester of 2021 that are still for sale.
The coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep across Europe, Italy included, and lockdowns and travel restrictions continue to affect daily life. One of the consequences of the pandemic has been a change in property trends and needs in Italy, with people realising during the period of confinement what their current home is lacking, including more outdoor and indoor space, a home office due to the rise in teleworking, a balcony or terrace and even a swimming pool.
Moving to the Italian countryside is also becoming a more popular option. This is also the case for international buyers who are more willing to move abroad than ever for a lifestyle improvement, especially if working remotely is an option. This is equally reflected in the properties that are most viewed on the idealista website, including searches from potential buyers searching in Italy and international buyers. Lets have a look at some of the most viewed properties in Italy at the start of 2021 (that are still for sale).
