Holidays 2021: the good fortune of owning houses for rent in Venice

Are you thinking of buying a house in Venice to rent it to tourists or workers? Here are some useful tips

After the brake imposed by the pandemic, Venice real estate agencies are once again stormed. The goal is one: to find houses for sale in Venice that can become an extra piece to build your future thanks to income through rents, which in a location like this can only look at the tourist market.

What are the characteristics that a house in Venice must have to be an earning opportunity starting from the first holidays of 2021? The possibilities offered, as well as the answers to this question, are many. Let's start from the project we have in mind: do we want to focus on medium and short-term rental tourism or do we prefer to invest in a property that can also host offices and services in the long term?

The solutions are both viable, you just have to analyze the market for homes for sale in Venice, even better if with the help of professionals in the sector such as our experts from the Engel & Völkers agency.


Thanks to the simultaneous presence of prestigious institutional offices, the proximity of the scenic Grand Canal and the location in the heart of the city, the Rialto district represents the area to focus on for any type of future rental. San Marco is usually at the top of the preferences of visitors, thanks to the pull of the beautiful square and the Basilica. Are you oriented towards an exclusively tourist accommodation? Then this is the right sestiere.

Are you looking for the opportunity instead? Try to find your way around the streets of the Castello , which still can count on competitive prices. Not to forget Cannaregio , which offers a range of possibilities both among the luxury homes for sale in Venice, and interesting alternatives for lower investments: Campo San Zulian, Campo San Geremia and Campo Widmann are the next stops to be noted in the notebook.

It must also be considered that today we find ourselves in a moment of great ferment, triggered by the post Covid dynamics. In fact, alongside those who are looking to buy a house in central Venice, there are those who want to sell to move to areas further away from large flows and equally exclusive, such as the Lido , with a range of luxury properties equipped with terraces and spaces outdoors that are popular. So eyes on the center: it is possible that the house of your dreams as an investor will be vacated.

Buying a house in Venice and then renting it is a good idea also looking at the type of tourists expected and the development opportunities in the future. 

The city aims to free itself from the "hit and run" holiday to welcome more and more qualified visitors interested in experiencing the city in its many aspects, starting with the rich cultural life. For them, well-equipped accommodations in areas of the city not too popular and to be discovered are excellent. Furthermore, the target is also rising: the number of wealthy foreign tourists who seek beauty and art in the city, but also luxury and privacy, is increasing. Among the luxury homes in Venice there are many properties that meet this identikit and that can be transformed into welcoming residences equipped with all comforts for short and medium-term rentals. And if you are willing to devote a little more time to researching and organizing subsequent works, the market for luxury properties to be renovated can turn out to be a veritable mine of opportunities.

It is therefore time to invest, in order to make the most of the growth driver expected for the coming months. In order not to miss the right opportunity, do not hesitate to contact our Engel & Völkers agency in Venice with its many ideal proposals for those who want to have the right property to put on the rental market or, if they do not yet have it, secure the right in the sun in front of one of the most fascinating views in the world.
