Investment to Bring Growth to Calabria

Investment to Bring Growth to Calabria, Strengthening Calabria Property

Calabria is back on the path to becoming one of Europe’s top property choices, regaining the limelight that it, along with all overseas property hotspots lost when the crisis caused desire to buy overseas property to die in all but the super wealthy.

Italy has long been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and the likes of Tuscany and Chianti have been among the most popular destinations for overseas property purchases, though they quickly became too pricey for the majority of buyers.

Here comes Calabria, offering all that is quintessentially Italian. Naples to the north, Sicily to the south, oceans to the east and west and a fantastic climate — what more could you ask for? Low prices? That is arguably Calabria’s main strength. For people priced out of Tuscany, Chianti and even Naples and Sicily can easily afford to buy property in Calabria.

Calabria Property Investment: A Powerful Package

Calabria is an often overlooked part of Italy which offers much better value for money than the northern regions. Property in Calabria is often substantially less expensive than better-known regions and because of this, is likely to give a better return on your investment.

Tourism to this area is increasing and the Italian government has already identified southern Italy as being an area full of natural resources and with great historical interest.

As such this whole area, including Calabria is the subject of €100 billion worth of investment from the EU. This investment plan began in 2007 and will continue until 2013. The result will be a greatly improved infrastructure which is already attracting more tourists.

What’s more the local airport at Lamezia serves direct flights from London Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick, with Ryanair launching new routes to the airport from the UK last month.

Calabria is ideal for people interested in culture, fine dining, relaxing on the beach or even skiing, and this wide diversity within the region substantially increases the rental opportunities.

Its close proximity to the UK makes it ideal for second home owners wanting to escape for long weekends, while still being able to generate income from tourists. This area has been highlighted as one of the emerging markets in Europe, and anyone can see the potential for property price appreciation in the coming years.

Improved Picture in Italian Property Market

Commercial property in Italy brought investors an average 5.2% yield in 2011 according to the latest data from the IPD Italy Annual Property Index. This is a massive improvement on the 0.8% yields recorded in the sector in 2009.

It is not all good news though. According to the data the growth was fuelled by increasing occupancy and income returns, capital values continued to fall in 2010. Capital values have fallen 7.8% in the 2 years 2008-2010, although 2010 saw the rate of decline slow greatly, from -4.6% in 2009 to just -0.5% in 2010. This, according to the experts means that we are now looking at a bottom in capital depreciation. However, rental values also fell, according to the index rents were down 0.7% in 2010.

On the bright side vacancy rates fell to 7.3%, the first fall in vacancy rates since 2007, and income returns increased by 10 basis points to 5.7%. This was the highest income return seen for 5 years.

Residential property in Italy is also thought to have bottomed, despite the turmoil in the European economy. According to the latest release of data from the Bank of Italy prices fell just 0.3% in the year to end the first half of 2010. This was echoed by Nomisma, and indepdent think-tank which recorded a 0.6% decline during the same period. Because prices in Italy have not seen a steep decline during the crisis, prices are now thought to be stable at their current level.

Calabria can take its fair share of the credit for this. According to reports from real estate agents sales have recovered well since early 2009, and are currently thought to be returning to pre-crisis levels.
