1 euro homes for sale listings 2023 – 2024. New Italy’s Оne Euro house Program and Scheme

I can confidently tell you that the information you will find in this article is quite rare. Before discussing new listings for 1 Euro houses, let me ask you a question:

What do you think is the actual selling price for these 1 Euro houses? Perhaps 1 Euro? 10 Euros or 100? No, that’s a misconception. Let’s delve into it.

Some time ago, there were several popular and realistic projects on British and American television. It was an engaging show where celebrities purchased an old house for 1 Euro and renovated it themselves. One such amazing show about €1 houses in Tuscany was filmed in Fornovolasco, starring Amanda Holden and Alan Carr, and aired on the BBC in January 2024. (You’re right – the link above is a great article – but it’s not as good as this one. The article about Tuscany is about entertainment)

We conducted a small investigation to find out how much participants who applied to participate in the “1 Euro House” auction actually paid to own these houses.

It’s no secret that 1 Euro is just the starting price. Afterward, people submit their offers and say:

You can download the complete table with real selling prices by following this link. In the document, you’ll find the price paid by Amanda Holden and Alan Carr’s team in Salemi:

If you’re interested in learning how to smartly purchase a “1 Euro House ” understanding the potential expenses, and discovering tips on saving during renovations, I recommend сheck out books on Amazon. There are useful tips for renovation.

The second important aspect is not to fall into the trap. Do you know how people lose money? Read further in the article

Houses for sale that need renovation in 2023-2024 and some less-than-wise decisions..

So, there are only a few weeks left until the beginning of the new year 2024. Some Italian cities and municipalities have already concluded their house sales, some are selling right now, and others are preparing new offers.

It should be noted that this year we have observed an increasing number of strange situations in which people continue to act very foolishly.

For instance:

There are cities with 1 Euro offers that have been featured on YouTube or in television shows. This means that thousands of applications and eager buyers are flooding these cities to purchase a 1 Euro house.

This creates a frenzy, and in practice, it leads to the following:

Participants start competing with each other, offering higher prices, and instead of spending 10 Euros for a ruin, they end up spending 3000-6000 Euros. The house still has the same problems; the only difference is that there’s been publicity, and they’re paying hundreds of times more for the same product.

I often see videos where, in the first days of a product launch, people stand in long queues to buy the latest iPhone. They endure hours of discomfort and frustration. Yet, after a few weeks, the iPhone remains just an iPhone. Someone needs to tell them that.

In our case, foolishness is buying a dilapidated house at an auction for an inflated price and then discovering, on some forum, that others have bought a three times better house for the same price.

Think like the wealthy – know when to buy. We will tell you how to get what you want and outsmart everyone.

Before you visit the official websites, download this form. The thing is, most Italian municipalities have documents in the Italian language. This document is in English and can serve as an example to understand the type of information the city will require from you.

Let’s divide the problems into two parts. This is necessary to save your time.

The solution to the first set of problems is outlined in the book. It’s too extensive to fit into one article, and it will be useful if you’ve truly decided to purchase a house for 1 euro and want to avoid mistakes in choosing a property and finalizing the contract.

If you’re still contemplating, then continue reading this article.

The second set of challenges comprises issues you’ll encounter right at the beginning. You need to be aware of them and consider their solutions. However, as one family, who successfully moved to Italy and embraced an Italian way of life, said:

“You need to be aware of the challenges, but there’s no need to fear them! If we had been scared of all this, we would never have gained such invaluable experience and never would have met these new wonderful people.

Listen up! Only the sea and natural wine from Sicilian vineyards are worth taking this seriously.

Here is a list of FAQ for a quick answer, but the most interesting things are below:

Can a US citizen buy property in Italy?

Yes, US citizens can buy property in Italy without restrictions. All our advice will help you with your purchase.

What documents do I need to buy a house for 1 euro in Italy?

You will need an Italian tax number, codice fiscale. It is necessary! Here’s a good article about it.

How much is 1 euro in Italy?

As of January 5, 2024, 1 euro is equal to approximately $1.13 US dollars.

How to buy a house in Italy for 1 euro?

To buy a house in Italy for 1 euro, you will need to find a property that is part of a government-run program. These programs are designed to attract investment and revitalize abandoned communities. Continue reading this article.

We must warn you that the buzz we mentioned above brings a number of difficulties: thousands of people simultaneously submit applications, send emails, and ask thousands of questions.

Imagine one municipal employee who speaks only Italian and receives hundreds of questions in different languages every day.

Do you think he will answer them? No! It is naive to think so. He takes them lightly and thinks something like:

Why are you asking if a U.S. citizen can buy a house for 1 euro? This is a well-known fact. Citizens of countries not in the European Union can buy such houses.

Or the question: If I buy such a house, can I live freely in Italy year-round? And, of course, this question may genuinely interest the buyer, but the problem is that an employee in Italy is not an immigration consultant – that’s not his job.

For an Italian official, such a question means that the person wants to solve all their problems for 1 euro. This is not serious because to buy a house in Italy, you need to study the laws and practices, develop a good reconstruction plan, and be ready to deal with Italian bureaucracy.

We are confident that you are not like that, but unfortunately, the municipality’s email and phone are simply flooded with such people.

So, what to do and how to contact them? The answer is simple and complex at the same time: Think about why you need a house in an unknown village? Are you sure it has what you need? If not, here’s a link to buy tickets. Plan a trip and take a good rest while also looking at the 1 euro houses.

We say this because we know: More and more Italian municipalities require an inspection of the house before its purchase by you or your representative. Perhaps it’s not such a bad idea to fly to Italy for the weekend or holidays?”

Restoring a 1 Euro house. How much does it cost?

I’ve conducted an analysis and have a list of houses that might be worth buying. But where can I get the floor plan and assess the renovation costs? What does the interior of the house look like?

It is worth noting that the documents provided by the municipality are not enough to make a decision on purchasing a house. The description may show the layout, number of floors, or energy efficiency class of the building, but there are no other important characteristics.

How are these problems solved?

  1. Some municipalities make the buying process more complicated. Buyers must fulfill a number of conditions to obtain a “house for one euro”: pay a deposit (from 3000 to 6000 euros), conclude the deal within a specified period, start work following certain deadlines, obtain permission documents, and more. And although there are many potential buyers, not all of them assess the risks correctly. Some of them violate deadlines or refuse their proposals. To avoid this, auction organizers may introduce requirements:

Mandatory visit to the house for one euro with a technician before purchase.

This means that if you need a file that will help you quickly calculate repair costs. It won’t solve all your problems, but I’m sure it will help you a lot.

You can visit 5 or 6 houses, and each of them needs to be evaluated from the perspective of repairs. Our file, in which we have collected the necessary information and calculation methods, helps with this.

  1. Real estate agencies. Yes, some municipalities may recommend that you work with a realtor who will conduct the transaction and send photos. In our book, we describe the nuances of working with such agencies in the context of buying a house for one euro and the specifics of Italian laws. The book is useful, inexpensive, but saves a lot of time and money. It also contains other useful files. We recommend it.
  2. In some cities, volunteers, local residents, work. As a rule, their data is indicated on the websites of municipalities. It should be understood that these people do not owe you anything, and it is in your interests to find common ground with them. If communication is not your strong point, then we return to item 1 and plan a trip to Italy. We think that the thought of vacationing in Italy and Sicily alone will make your heart beat even faster. We have written several useful articles to help you with this.
  3. If you are interested in seeing houses for 1 euro before and after renovation, read this article.

Other 1 euro properties in Italy:

We always encourage looking at the regions where houses were previously sold for one euro as a map of affordable real estate. This will provide you with certain opportunities and advantages. You can find a complete list featuring over 30 such cities.

Leave your comment below when requesting a file. We cannot send it to everyone, otherwise this approach will become available to many and its exclusivity will be lost. That’s why we send it only to those who really need it. It’s free. But not everyone

1 Euro Houses for sale in Italy and other cheap real estate 2023

If you closely examine the official websites of Italian municipalities, you may notice that, in addition to cheap real estate sold at auction, there is real estate for sale at prices ranging from 10,000 to 20,000 euros. What is this?

The fact is that homeowners are not always willing to sell their homes at auction, starting at a symbolic price of 1 euro. Many houses are in good condition and are clearly worth more, but the owners do not want to pay taxes and ask the municipality to sell their property.

As a rule, the authorities agree, but say that this property should be cheaper than the market price. Owners agree, and that’s how real estate appears that is sold for less than real estate on well-known national portals.

An advantage is that municipal authorities usually act as a guarantor of such a transaction, and if the safety of the purchase is important to you, this can be a good and inexpensive option.
