Homeowners keen to sell have rushed to put their property on the market with the latest PropTrack listings report showing the total listings in capital cities has jumped 55.6%.

The flood of listings around the country is the largest in January since 2014 — up 24.2% with Melbourne up 67.5% and Sydney up 101.5% compared to last year.

New listings across other capital cities were also strong with year-on-year increases in Darwin (45.2%), Perth 33.9%, Canberra 20.1% and Brisbane 19.7%.

Regional property has lagged and continues to be in short supply with new listings trending down 6.7% from December to January yet remain 11.9% higher than they did in January 2021.

According to PropTrack economist Angus Moore, pumped up levels of seller confidence is bringing more property to the market.

“The growth in new listings in January comes despite the Omicron wave. This is in stark contrast to mid-2021 when the Delta wave (and associated lockdowns) curtailed seller confidence in affected states,” says Mr Moore.

“Sellers are wasting no time as they look to cash in on last year’s price growth and high buyer demand.”

A 14th-century villa in the hills overlooking Florence, Italy, has hit the market for €12 million (US$13 million).

Surrounded by cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves, the quintessential Tuscan home was built for the Davanzati family—who were powerful bankers, merchants and patrons during the Italian Renaissance who have a museum named after them in the heart of the city. The villa was one of the family’s multiple country retreats, according to Lionard Luxury Real Estate, which brought the home to the market earlier this month.

The four-storey, lemon-hued villa boasts more than 16,000 square feet of living space and historic character and charm by the bucket load.

The ballroom has a giant skylight.

On the ground floor there are ​​a number of reception rooms and open-air living areas, with many of them boasting antique paintings, tapestries and stately fireplaces made of marble or carved stone.

The most “magnificent” room, according to Lionard, is the winter garden hall, a ballroom with stuccos, loggias and towering vaulted ceilings, illuminated by an Art Nouveau skylight.

On the first floor are multiple double bedrooms and an antique library, and the second floor, while in need of renovation, offers the possibility of creating up to 12 en-suite bedrooms. The villa’s tower has a “delightful sitting room and a rooftop terrace offering a breathtaking view of the city of Florence,” the listing said.

The villa has ivy-covered loggias.

The basement, meanwhile, has a cellar with brick vaults that are perfect for wine lovers. An elevator runs between the levels.

Outside, the grounds have well-kept gardens, rolling lawns, a fountain, ancient wells and ivy-covered loggias.

Mansion Global couldn’t determine who is selling the villa, or when they acquired it.

The property is “an oasis of peace,” the listing said, and “one of the most exclusive historical estates on the hills that surround the city of Florence.”
