Paris Real Estate Market Report - Autumn 2020

Paris Real Estate Market Report - 2nd Qrtr 2020

Paris property sales are down but prices are still climbing according to a recent report published last month by the Chambre de Notaires de Paris. The ongoing pandemic continues to weigh on the French real estate market but overall prices are up on last year, looking at 2,5% possible increase compared to 1,8% for the year 2019 before the pandemic started.

The report makes an interesting read and perhaps unsurprisingly shows price increases of 10% or more for older homes in Burgundy, Normandy and in south west France. For Paris this figure is 5% which is slightly surprising as many families and professionals were escaping the capital city in favour of the countryside in spring at the end of the first ‘confinement’.

Moreover, the price per sqm for old apartments in Paris have increased by 8%, at an average of 10,690 euros mer square meter for the year up to october 2020. The annual increase is expected to be in the 6,6% range.
