Sanremo Property

Follow the beautiful 17th century cobblestone mosaic through the old town up to the majestic Madonna della Costa Sanctuary and enjoy the magnificent views over the lush gardens of old Sanremo and the city underneath before retiring to the wonderful old Piazza San Siro to enjoy a refreshing chilled glass of beer under the shaded canopy of one of the outdoor cafés lining the square; while away a relaxing afternoon sunbathing on the terrace of your luxury villa and then head off to the magnificent century-old casino before enjoying a late champagne dinner; treat yourself to a boat trip around the beautiful rocky coastline before coming into town to feast on a delicious lunch of homemade gnocchi with pesto followed by freshly grilled seafood with lemon and garlic all washed down with the local chilled white wine. Located between Genoa and the French border in the heart of the 'Riviera dei Fiori' – the Riviera of Flowers – with good access to both Genoa and Nice airports and blessed with warm, fresh summers yielding to mild and bright winters, there is an excellent range of Sanremo property for sale offering investors the opportunity to become part of this elegant seaside town.

Long a haunt of Europe's crowned heads, nobility, wealthy and fortune-hunters, Sanremo is an elegant and rather old-fashioned seaside resort with lots to see and do. From the harbour brimming with sleek yachts to busy shopping streets lined with chic boutiques and bustling markets, broad palm-lined boulevards with discreetly luxurious villas and La Pigna – the old town crammed full of tightly packed buildings clinging to a winding steep hill crowned with the Madonna della Costa Sanctuary, Sanremo is also famous for its annual Music Festival which is said to have inspired the style and format of the Eurovision Song Contest! The Sanremo Flower parade at the end of January also gives the town its nickname - the City of Flowers.

Although property prices in Italy have been declining for more than seven years, Sanremo property prices remain high. There is always healthy interest from international property buyers particularly those from the French Riviera and Monaco where both property prices and taxes are much higher than in Italy and the year round climate provides superb rental income for those wishing to invest in a holiday rental home.

There is a wide range of Sanremo property for sale to suit all tastes and budgets ranging from superb waterfront apartments overlooking the Mediterranean Sea to luxurious villas with private gardens up in the hills behind the town.

There is a good range of apartments for sale in Sanremo. One bedroom properties tend to start at around 200,000 EUR and there are a number of new residential complexes with direct access to the sea where a modern one bedroom apartment with shared swimming pool and access to a private beach would typically cost around 250,000. Bigger properties tend to start at around 500,000 EUR. For example a four bedroom penthouse with panoramic sun terrace and fabulous views of the town and sea would be in the region of 850,000 EUR and for an elegant two bedroom apartment in a beautiful renovated villa just 50 metres from the beach expect to pay over 1m EUR. Two and three bedroom villas start at around 500,000 EUR and many can be found just minutes from the sea although the plots are rather small; for example a two bedroom villa with garden and BBQ area would cost in the region of 520,000 EUR whereas if you go slightly further up the hill then the plots are bigger so a four bedroom villa with swimming pool and great views of Sanremo and the sea would be in the region of 600,000 – 650,000 EUR with prices going up to just over 1m EUR for five and six bedroom properties. If you want a villas directly by the sea then expect to pay between 1.2m – 1.5m EUR depending on the exact location.

Sanremo property provides investors with the perfect opportunity to buy a property on the Italian Riviera and enjoy the 'Dolce Vita'. Whether you decide to buy a luxury hillside villa with swimming pool and sea views or a modern apartment with direct access to the sea, Sanremo makes a perfect holiday and investment destination.

Taxation

Various taxes must be paid on purchases. Registration tax / stamp duty (Imposta di Registro) is calculated on the government’s valuation of the property (Valore catastale). This will vary according to whether the property is being purchased as a holiday home, or as your primary residence. For a holiday home stamp duty will be 10% of the valuation. If you are intending to use the property as your primary residence and apply for residency (Prima casa), providing this is done within 18 months of the property transfer then stamp duty will be reduced to 3% for an existing property and 4% for a new build. This will be paid to the Notary on completion of the purchase.

Land registration, mortgage and cadastral taxes also need to be paid to the Notary on completion. These are one-off payments and are around €168 each.

Once the property has been purchased further taxes must be paid. There is a local council tax ICI/IMU property tax (Imposta Comunale sugli Immobili) of 0.4% to 0.9% of the property’s cadastral value. The rate for this is calculated annually by the council and paid bi-annually in June and December. This rate will be reduced if the property is the primary residence (Prima Casa).

If you are not resident in Italy you will have to declare any income gained from activities in Italy to the Italian Tax authorities. This income will also have to be declared in your country of residence, you will need a double taxation agreement to mitigate against paying twice. This declaration will apply to any income you might obtain from letting a property in Italy. Some expenses incurred on the property may be off-set against the income you derive from letting out the property. This can include management expenses, local taxes, repairs etc.

There is one tax which applies only to holiday homes, there will be a 20% Capital Gain on the difference between the buying price and the selling price if the property is sold prior to 5 years ownership.
