Buy-to-Let Buy-to-Let

Welcome to the very first opportunity in Florence, Italy, the renaissance capital!

Type of Opportunity: Loan 1              Modality: Buy-to-let

It’s our 7th project in Italy but still the first outside Milan and as well the first tourist rental in Italy. The purpose of this project is to finance the purchase, refurbishment and full decoration, with the Home Staging2 strategy, in order to start offering the apartment to tourists as a holiday rental, with a future sale at the end of it.

Being a buy-to-let Opportunity:

  • You don’t have to wait for the apartment to be leased. You will begin receiving returns from the very beginning thanks to InstantRent.
  • You have the liberty of selling your titles whenever you want through our Marketplace.

Florence is a city that oozes history, art, philosophy and science and to which millions of tourists come every year. This is surely not in vain, since in 1982 Unesco granted to all the cultural and artistic heritage of Florence, the title of World Heritage.

The tourism in Florence records spectacular data. According to the data of the Center Studi Turistici of Florence in 2016:

  • There was 9.3 million people who visited the city of Florence.
  • 14 million overnight stays were exceeded for the first time.
  • The average stay in the city was 2.61 days.
  • Clear tendency to accommodation for tourist use: grew by 8.7% compared to 2015, reaching 409,000 overnight stays.
  • The airport surpassed 7.5 million passengers for the first time, an increase of 3.9% compared to last year.

For this reason, the project developer has decided, given the typology and location, to allocate the apartment as a holiday rental, because the location is perfect for it and our experience is very positive since we have improved the expectations.

The web famous district Santo Spirito-San Frediano is the neighborhood is where the property is located, named by the Lonely Planet Guide as the coolest district worldwide thanks to its breathing new life into the Oltrarno area, known more for its artisans than hipster appeal. Even Ponte Vecchio, one of the main attraction of the city is just a few minutes walking from the Santo Spirito block.

This great position makes it possible to reach the most important attractions at walking distance, also for the most important connections like Santa Maria Novella Train Station.

The decoration of the apartment will be done with a professional Home Stager that will totally transform the image of the rooms. This strategy will increase the value of the apartment for the rent and for the final sale too. The apartment has double exposition (front/rear) and has a private heating system which makes it very easy to rent.

Located at the ground floor of a 15th Century building, the 50m2  apartment will be reformed leaving as a result the following distribution:

  • A bedroom
  • Spacious living room with kitchen
  • A Separate bathroom.

The project developer will be responsible for carrying out all the tasks and necessary steps to carry out the purchase, reform and decoration and carry out the marketing strategy (rent by days and subsequent sale in this case) or by itself; well through third parties. In addition to doing follow-ups during the lifetime of the project and being in charge of carrying out the necessary tasks for the day-to-day management of the property including the necessary tasks for the holiday operations, that is, maintenance, cleaning, check in, check out, procedures legal, and everything necessary to make the operation profitable.
