Real Estate Opportunities in the World’s Most Romantic City

April 21, 2011 by

Venice in Italy is one of the world’s most enchanting cities thanks to the almost fairytale allure of landmarks such as St Mark’s Basilica and Square, the Palazzo Ducale, the Grand Canal and the Bridge of Sighs.

This is understandably one of the most desirable places in which to own a property in Italy. Yet with prices of apartments in St Mark’s Square, for instance, routinely changing hands for US$9.75million, many investors have shied away from buying real estate in Venice. As have many locals, in truth, and since the 1950s the city’s population has shrunk by two-thirds to its present 60,000.

Yet there are highly affordable and profitable investment opportunities to be snapped up here – if you look in the right parts of the city. One such area is Dorsoduro, one of Venice’s six sestieri (districts) and a short vaporetto boat ride from St Mark’s Square. Here, just US$360,000 can buy a small, well-appointed apartment. Dorsoduro lacks nothing in upmarket chic as it is home to the Accademia art gallery, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and a recently opened Punta della Dogana Museum, a major collection of contemporary art on the site of an old 17th century customs house.

Yet it is also a lively, vibrant area – the Ca’ Foscari University is here – and after dark Dorsoduro’s bars and cafés form the centre of Venice’s nightlife. To get more bang for your investment buck, head for the even more affordable Castello, Venice’s largest district, which lies just to the east of St Mark’s Square but is slightly off the well-trodden tourist trail. Here, expect to pay around US$415,000 for a two-bedroom apartment of around 75-80sq m.

The rental yield of property in Venice remains huge. Some 20 million visitors a year beat a path to the city, for its historic architectural splendour as well as popular events such as the carnival in February/March; the Biennale arts festival in summer and autumn; and the Venice Film Festival in August/September. It means there is demand for rental properties almost all year round. In high season, a one-bedroom apartment can fetch from US$1,700 a week, a two-bedroom property around US$2,600 and the most prestigious properties US$8,000-plus.

Alternatively, look farther afield to the outlying isles among the 118 that make up the Venetian archipelago. In Burano, six miles outside the city centre, US$625,000 can secure a house rather than just an apartment. The nearby islands of Tellestrina Chioggia and Torcello are also worth a look. Bear in mind that rental yield will fall the further away from the centre of Venice in which you are.

Another popular option is to look beyond Venice and to the historic towns and cities within the Veneto region, some 45 minutes away by train. They include Verona, one of Veneto’s principal tourist and cultural destinations; Vicenza, a Unesco World Heritage Site; Padova, a lively, attractive and historic university city; and Treviso, renowned for its wine and cuisine. In Treviso and Vicenza, expect to pay around US$350,000 for a two-bedroom town centre apartment.

Padova is possibly the priciest of these towns and an 80sq m two-bedroom apartment will frequently come with a price tag of around US$550,000. Obviously the price falls considerably if you are prepared to take on a restoration project. Explore the surrounding countryside, where in places such as the spa resort of Abano Terme US$350,000 can stretch to a spacious three-bedroom home.

    Italy has such a romantic draw to it. The history, the culture, the architecture…who wouldn’t want to own a little piece of it.

    Panama is geographically superior to most of its Central American neighbors. Below the hurricane belt, Panama is not affected by the annual hurricane season. Panama is bounded on south by the Pacific Ocean, the north by the Caribbean Sea, the east by Columbia and the west by Costa Rica. The country has 1,600 miles of ocean coastline, a ridge of extinct volcanic mountains that make up its backbone. The weather varies depending on where you are in the country and this diversity only enhances the variety offerings in Panama’s real estate.

    Investing in real estate involves being among the first to spot wholesale properties that are bargains and being able to recognize those bargains. Once you can do this, you can still make money in the residential real estate market

  9. Pakistan Property on July 30th, 2009 1:09 am

    Venice really deserves the title “world’s most romantic city”,i think that investors should focus on the rental yield of property in Venice because Venice attracts round about 20 million visitors every year,a good reason in invest in real estate here.

  10. Rich Johnson on July 31st, 2009 8:26 am

    It sounds absolutely wonderful. I just finshed a book about Marco Polo’s life and in it of course were descriptions of Venice 1n the 1200’s. It sounded interesting then – it wounds interesting now.

    I don’t imagine that my wife and I would ever invest there but we certainly plan to travel there – perhaps a vacation rental?

    Ok. First off. Anytime there’s hype about some great escape that you should be investing – it is already too late for you.

    Just like when you find out about a sale on a dvd players at wal-mart (for you cheap guys). By the time you get there, they are all gone.

    It is nice to hear about great exotic and wonderful places to invest, true. It is also true that these places that are highly desirable to BUY are also HIGHLY desirable to SELL.

    The buyers pay for the great location and all the sweet publicity and news about their lil’ hide-away and the sellers are happy as a lark that there is some sucker that read that article.

  31. SuiteSusan on December 17th, 2009 9:07 am

    I agree, Venice is wonderful and romantic. However there are endless places in Italy that can be described like that. Florence is amazing, not to mention Tuscany and if you love the water what about the Amalfi Coast? I would love to own a place in any of these locations and would use it to swap with others around the world. Brewer Caldwell

    Wow, great article. I never imagined that there was so much opportunity for rental income in Venice. It certainly looks like a place worth doing some research into. I’ve never visited the city but looking on a tourist information site it seems there is so much in the area to atract tourists besides the canals and the main square.

    How is the real estate market in Venice, and Italy in general? After doing a “junior year abroad” many years ago, I’ve always thought it would be wonderful to go back for extended periods. Venice is certainly a jewell! But are home prices there soft or falling, as they have been in the US with our great recession, or has this area been somewhat immune from the economic impact of the housing fallout?

  57. Fleming on June 1st, 2010 3:46 am

    Venice is the great city in the word because the Venice environment is very light and cold.You property price is very cheap and affordable.I have always thought it would be wonderful to go back for extended periods.Italy real estate agencies is very useful like Indian Real Estate Agents because the Indian Real Estate Agents also use and affordable.India is the very largest country in real estate market.Most historical place in India.That reason is Indian Real Estate Agents refer to our real estate agent.There are highly affordable and profitable investment opportunities.

    Venice is a unique city with romance, culture, history and is a good place for real estate. To escape the floods, Venice has started building a system of mobile barriers, which will bear the name “Moses”, for flow control of the Adriatic sea. It will be ready, probably in 2012.

  68. Tomas on August 12th, 2010 9:10 am

    As far as i know Venice is a great investment opportunity. However i would like to recommend Milan and other more economic oriented cities. However they are expanding a bit so this means that real estate prices will be rocketing pretty soon.

    Hi there,

    I had a great time in Venice, it is in fact super romantic! But when we were looking to buy our retirement home, we found that as much as we wanted to be away from everyone as a couple, we also wanted to be near family and wanted to have access to United State side services.
    My husband and I found the perfect balance by moving to Baja, Mexico. South Rosarito to be precise, we found an ocean front Villa for under $400,000, and that was at the higher market, I am amazed to see the prices that properties like mine are selling for today. What we did is first rent through a qualified agent, in Baja the Realtors association is called AMPI which stands for Asociacion Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios (Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals). My agent Mario Restrepo is excellent. He found for us a very reasonable rental property to be in for a month while we look at properties to buy. You may check out Mario Restrepo’s Real Estate for sale and rent in Baja Mexico here.

  99. Retired in Baja on November 17th, 2010 4:23 pm

    I also found my retirement home with Mario Restrepo, I found Mario after looking online for all my options, his website is and now he has a new website specific for the rentals, it is called, my property is advertised with him now as I travel half the time and rent it out.

    Mario will help you find properties that are full ownership and with clear title.

    Hi, This sounds great! A great investment indeed from one of the romantic city in the world. I hope I could get one. I would love to have a queensland property investment though. I was reading property investment blog when I saw this SelectInvestmentProperty site. I would say this is very useful and worth visiting. I was impressed on how they would give you financial freedom on your investment. A property investment Sydney is not that shabby at all. This may be as romantic as Venice but a great business center. I would love to own either one of this property in the future. Thank you for this post and keep it up!

    It’s all just a matter of knowing where to look. However, if you really wanna settle in Venice’s famous places, then it’s really going to cost you big. Nothing big comes in small prices. But, unarguably, Venice is a romantic place.

    I am from San Francisco but now live in Florence Italy.

    The breathtakingly beautiful city of Venice, which has a great variety of Venice property for sale, lies in the Veneto region of Italy, and is bordered by the superb mountain ranges of the Dolomites and Alps which offer a wide range of hiking and skiing. To the south lay the serene waters of the Adriatic, famous for its beaches and water pursuits. There is also much Venice property for sale to be found throughout the area.

    Venice itself spans 117 islands and the world famous canals are still the most popular method of getting around the city, whether by romantic gondolas or the many water taxis and buses (vaporetti). The canals provide a romantic setting for the numerous bars and restaurants that line the streets of this cosmopolitan city, selling, as you would expect, fare from all around the world, as well as the local specialities of pasta and seafood.

    It’s never a bad time to purchase a nice property (Depending on it’s use).

    The marketing medium you use and the message you accompany with it that hits the right target market turns sellers into motivated sellers. There simply is no generic marketing message and medium that is a �one-size-fits-all� approach in real estate.

  170. rict on September 6th, 2011 11:48 pm

    My hope is for you to realize that marketing to the real estate investor is the lifeblood of his/her business. Great deals rarely come knock on your door to find you. They find you when you have a marketing system implemented that is like a funnel prescreening sellers for motivation and directs them to then contact you immediately.
