Upswing in Paris’ real estate market

Despite a slight dip in the number of deals over the past 12 months, Paris’ real estate market is experiencing a slight rise in values.

The price of bricks and mortar in the capital continues to rise. According to the 82nd market report published by website this June, Paris has recorded a 0.9% rise over the past year (June 2015 to June 2016), 1.9% since January 2016, and 0.8% in the past month (from May to June).

*The market

The increase in values is slightly more significant for larger properties (three rooms or more) for which prices rose 1% in May and 2.1% since the beginning of the year.

Smaller properties have not seen a fall in value but they are held back by a lack of investors who prefer to look outside of the capital for economic reasons as well as Paris’ rent control regime.
