Are there really homes for free in Sicily?

It's true: there are around 12 homes being offered for free in Cammarata, Sicily. This small mountain town is close to historical sites, hiking trails, beautiful lakes and is just 60 km from Palermo. While there are requirements to renovate the properties within three years, the new owners can choose what to do with the building including using it as a family home, guest accommodation, a shop or restaurant.

It’s one opportunity to secure Sicilian real estate.

How can WGS Real Estate help you?

We offer comprehensive help and advice to support buyers looking to buy real estate in Italy and Sicily.

For buyers who successfully apply for free housing in Cammarata, we can help you in a number of key ways:

  • A legally secure real estate purchase: We can work with you to complete the property purchase in line with Sicilian regulations and requirements using English speaking Italian real estate agents and lawyers.
  • Create a renovation plan: A condition of acquiring these properties for free is that they must be renovated within three years. Our architecture and interior design services are at your disposal. We’ll work together to create a spectacular new property

At the moment there are around 12 properties suitable for the scheme, but it is likely that more will be added in due course. As the town becomes reignited, this could spur a regeneration which makes a real estate investment here worthwhile in the long-term.

Renovating a home in Sicily can be immensely rewarding.

If you would like to have property in the town described as having “1000 balconies to the East” then get in touch with us on +44 (0) 20 3137 5067 and we can work together to ensure that you submit an application which stands a good chance of success.
