Italian House Purchase

Our New Front Door

It’s a little over a week since we returned from our house purchase trip. It seems longer somehow, but this whole year has been completely wacky. So much has happened, but that’s another story.

The realtor has our passports now and is applying for our Italian Tax Codes. I think that’s going okay! We’re having a glitch with the seller, nothing serious, but these things are sent to try us. The stairs in the house aren’t yet finished, they’re concrete. The seller said he’d finish them to our taste and include it in the purchase price. The seller is 74 and not in good heath. We didn’t have the agreement for the stairs in writing and he’s decided as we bartered with him on the sale price, and got the house for 10,000 Euro’s less than the asking price, we’ll need to have someone finish the stairs at our expense. It’s not the end of the world. If this is the only thing that goes wrong, I’m okay with it.

My daughter has business in Verona in November, which will coincide with the closing on November 6th. She can get a fast train to Vasto (sounds like a song doesn’t it) and then rent a car and drive to Colledimezzo for the closing. Bumps and glitches happen, but if it’s meant to be, it will be!
