Housing Rental Market in 2014

Tuesday 02 June 2015

Rents in the private residential sector in France rose by an average of 1% in 2014, giving an average national rent of €12.70m2.

Each year the housing rental observatory ‘Clameur’ (Connaître les Loyers et Analyser les Marchés sur les Espaces Urbains et Rurau), based at the University of Paris, publishes an annual round up of the housing rental market in France.

It covers over 90% of the lettings in France for unfurnished properties let on an annual basis. Holiday and furnished lettings are not part of the survey.

The following table shows the average rents per m2 for properties of 1 bed to 4 bed in the major towns and cities of France. The number in brackets is the administrative number for the department.

Rents within these towns and cities will vary by geographic area, so the information should only be used as a general guide.

As can be seen, the larger the property the lower the rental per m2. On a national level 1 bedroom properties averaged around €17m2, whilst it was under €10m2 for a 4 bed property.

On a regionel level the highest rent levels were in the Ile-de-France (€18.90m2), whilst the lowest were in Limousin (€8.40m2).

We have not listed the percentage movements in the year for each town or city, as they are very variable by size/type of property and area.

However, if you wish any further particular information on the changes, or rent levels in a town not listed, then drop us a line at editor@french-property.com.
