Looking for a home in Italy? Have about €250,000 to spend? What can you get with that kind of cash? Well, that all depends on where you are. In places like historic centers of Rome and Milan expect to pay this amount for a 300 square foot (30 square meters) “apartment.” Really it is basically a room with a tiny kitchen and bathroom. The same rule applies to towns like Amalfi. But if you are in the country, yes, even in Tuscany, that price tag will get you more like 2,000 square feet (200 square meters). The overall average seemed to be about 800 square feet (80 square meters).
Obviously there are all kinds of factors that affect the price of a home so this is a VERY general overview. Still, this was a fun research project. Obviously I am always comparing things to home. And in Texas €250,000 would get you an average of a 2000 square foot home – complete with BBQ of course! :)
