I am a U.S./Italian dual citizen. I have read through many of the posts on this forum about buying an apartment, but a lot of them seem be about people who have ridiculous amounts of money. My wife and I are moving to Italy in August, and we will presumably have jobs before we go. We have a bit of savings, I think plenty for a down payment on a small apartment, which would make our monthly payments cheaper than rent. I understand the process can be complicated, but what are the laws about how much you can borrow? How much you have to put down in order to borrow? Will banks give loans apartments that are around 50,000 to 70,000 Euros?
Thank you all for your help.
