Prices of houses and apartments in the Czech Republic have begun to rise again, according to Czech National Bank statistics.  Wonderfully beautiful Prague is quite an expensive city in which to buy property:

  • a 120 square metre (sq. m.) apartment in Prague will cost you around 460,000 euros
  • a 70 sq. m. apartment in Prague will cost you around 260,000 euros

The purchase price of apartments in Prague’s prime residential districts is now around 3,500 euros to 4,000 euros per sq. m..

How much will you earn?  Prague’s rental yields are weak:

  • a 120 square metre (sq. m.) apartment in Prague can rent for around 1,500 euros per month, earning a yield of around 3.7% a month
  • a 70 sq. m. apartment in Prague can rent for around 780 euros, earning a yields of around 3.6% a month

Currency risk. Over the past two years, the Czech Koruna has flat-lined against the euro.

Conclusion: You’re not going to buy in Prague for yields, at the moment!
