What is a 1 euro house and where do you find these 1 euro properties in Italy?

A 1 euro house is a property with significant renovation needs, which can usually be purchased from a municipality in southern Italy. In this way, you can buy a house in Italy quite cheaply, regardless of whether you intend to use it as a vacation home or a retirement home. The municipalities offering 1 euro houses are located throughout Italy. There are indeed 1 euro properties on Elba, on Sardinia, in Tuscany and on Lake Garda.A 1 euro house in southern Italy, e.g. in Sicily, Sardinia or Puglia, often has more financial or even non-financial advantages, which we describe here.

What additional costs are incurred for the purchase of a €1 property?

The process of purchasing a 1 euro house is very similar to the process of a normal property purchase in Italy. Only the submission of a binding offer and the conclusion of a preliminary contract are not required. The purchase takes place at the notary’s office. The costs of the notary and the taxes associated with the purchase are borne by the purchaser. These usually amount to 2,000 – 5,000 euros. In addition, usually an insurance policy is concluded and a deposit is paid to the municipality. The purchaser also undertakes to renovate the property within a period of a few years. If this is not accomplished, the property reverts to the municipality and you lose your deposit.

Buying a 1 euro house from a private individual

It can be quite attractive to buy a 1 euro property from a private individual. In this case, there are no restrictions as you are not buying the property in the context of a municipal program.

What will a 1 euro house in Italy cost me in the end?

A 1 euro house will of course end up costing more than just one euro. Nevertheless, the total cost at the end of the real estate project for a house is usually 50,000 to 150,000 euros. Considering real estate prices in other countries, this is a competitive price. This is also true if you consider the cost of a property in popular locations on Lake Garda or in Tuscany. You can’t go on vacation so often in your life that a so-called “1-euro property” becomes more expensive than an ordinary vacation property on Lake Garda, where seven-figure purchase prices are often called for.

What other benefits do I have when buying a 1 euro house?

It is possible to apply for grants for the renovation work, which can reduce the purchase costs even further. Additional income can be generated by renting out the property as a vacation home to tourists. Italy offers private individuals the option of paying a flat-rate tax on rental income. People in the south of Italy reach a very old age. There is a reason for this. The food, the landscape, the culture and the climate are unique.

How can we support you in buying a 1-euro property in Italy?

We accompany the purchase of a 1-euro property from selection to moving in. In some municipalities, we can also provide support after completion of the property thanks to personal contacts. We can connect you with Italian architects, civil engineers, construction companies, notaries, rental agencies and tax consultants, some of whom also speak German or English. We support you to ensure that your real estate project is a complete success until the property is transferred to your children. Such a project is more than just buying a property abroad. Never forget inheritance law.
