In the historical centre of Rome, apartments now cost between €6,000 and €6,153 per square metre (sq. m.), significantly down on last year, and even more down on the year before. The property slump was caused by a number of factors, including the euro zone crisis and austerity measures like higher property taxes such as the Imposta Municipale Unica (IMU) - in English, the Local Property Tax.
Prices of apartments. Apartments in the wealthy suburbs of Rome cost on average between €3,900 to €4,900 per sq. m.. A 120 sq. m. apartment in the suburbs would cost around €3,900 per sq. m.
A 120 sq. m. apartment in Milan would cost on average €5,600 per sq. m. Milan apartment prices range from €4,900 per sq. m. to €6,200 per sq. m.
Rents of apartments. In the historical centre of Rome, monthly rents range from €18 to €21 per sq. m., so you can rent a 120 sq. m. apartment here for around €2,400 per month.
In Milan, monthly rents range from €13 to €17 per sq. m., so you can rent a 120 sq. m. apartment here for around €1,600 per month.
In the suburbs of Rome, rents range from €13 to €17 per sq. m. per month. So again, a 120 sq. m. apartment can be rented for around €1,600 per month.
Rental returns. Gross rental yields on apartments in Rome and Milan are poor. Larger apartments return poorer rental yields then smaller apartments. This is true in either of Italy’s two most important cities.
Gross rental yields on apartments in Rome’s historical centre range from 3.54% (200 sq. m.) to 4.22% (50 sq. m.).
In the suburbs, rental yields range from 3.25% (200 sq. m.) to 4.56% (50 sq. m.).
Apartments in Milan return rental yields of between 2.90% (200 sq. m.) to 4.10% (50 sq. m.).
Conclusion: Property prices are beginning to look attractive. But gross rental yields are very poor, and Italy’s predatory taxation system doesn’t help.
