Offices for Sale In Italy


Investing in Italian Office Space

According to The Institute for Economic Research, prices for office space will rise in the coming years. Rental rates will probably also be affected by this increase.

Since the first half of 2018, property prices in Milan increased by 1.4 percent on average. In prime locations, the price per square metre ranges between 500 and 600 euros, in upscale locations the square metre costs between 375 and 500 euros. The average gross rental return remains stable throughout Italy and amounts to approx. 5.1 percent.

Retail space is an attractive investment in Italy as Italians are avid consumers with a high level of disposable income. This development is again spearheaded by the city of Milan, Florence and Rome where global companies have opened flagship stores.

Italian Rates of Return

Rental rates also exhibited positive growth for investors in leading locations. Since 2018 three major Italian cities achieved rent increases: Milan (+0.8 percent), Venice (+0.2 percent) and Florence (+0.1 percent). The best gross returns were achieved in Venice.

In prime locations, the city yielded returns of 8 percent, in secondary locations near the city centre a yield of 7 percent was attained. This is followed by the cities of Rome and Florence. The Italian capital achieved returns of 7.1 percent in prime locations and 7.5 percent in locations near the city centre. Florence achieved 6.6 percent in locations near the city centre and 7 percent for locations in the city centre.

Rome is certainly one of the focal cities of Italian shopping tourism. Travelers love taking advantage of its innumerable shops and boutiques in between discoveries of magnificent monuments and cultural experiences. One of the Eternal City's most sought after areas is the 'Trident', formed by Via dei Condotti, Via Borgognona, Via Frattina and by the adjacent Spanish Steps: the Trident is perhaps the most high-end destination for Roman shopping, with a concentration of renowned jewellers and important Italian and international flagships and ateliers.

Milan is the nerve center for the Italian economy, where winning ideas are combined with fashion, trendy products and the mastery of ancient trades. The combination of exhibitions - accompanied by the opportunity to tour places of culture and shopping, in addition to enjoying the restaurants for which Milan is famous - makes the Lombard Capital a must for investors.

Good gross rental returns were also achieved in the area of logistics: In this sector, the average value was a stable 7 percent in the first half of 2018.

It is presumed that the logistics segment will become increasingly important in the coming years. The main reason for this is e-commerce: With a growth rate of 10 percent, Italy is one of the European countries with the highest values in this market.

The increasing importance of online trade is also having a positive effect on growth in the logistics property market. In this way, logistics locations will probably also emerge in areas not yet classified as prime locations.

Student Accommodation for Sale in Italy

Student-accommodation-for-sale-ItalyStudent accommodation has evolved from an alternative asset class into a mainstream investment which now attracts a variety of global institutional investors. High income returns attracted the first investors to the sector, but as the sector has matured and yields have come in, investors are now drawn to student housing’s counter-cyclical income stream. In economic downturns, demand for student housing tends to increase as students prolong their studies while they wait for the job market to improve, while those out of work return to university to upskill.

University towns such as Bologna, Milan, Florence and Rome do not have enough student accommodation to meet the demand of mobile, international students, unfamiliar with local housing markets and often with higher budgets.

Between 2007 and 2017 the number of internationally mobile students grew by 64% to over 5 million, according to UNESCO. International students numbers in mainland Europe are rising rapidly too, attracted by English Taught Programmes and lower cost tuition.

Future growth in outbound student numbers is expected to continue to be driven by major source markets China and India, but despite a rise in student numbers, and in turn investment, student accommodation remains largely under-supplied at the national level.
