(Partner Article) In the market of Paris real estatethere is a real difference in price per square meter between the various boroughs. Indeed, the capital includes bourgeois neighborhoods, where the square meter can reach 13.190 €, and more popular neighborhoods where it is estimated at 9.724 € on average. The location of the property is an important decision in a buyer's investment project.
The most expensive districts of Paris
The districts of the center of the capital (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th) are the most expensive. The price per square meter in these neighborhoods is well over € 10,000.
In some streets of the 7th arrondissement, such as the rue de Bellechasse, or the Charles Floquet Avenue along the Champs de Mars and the Eiffel Tower, the square meter can reach 20,000 €. On the prestigious Avenue Montaigne, the average square meter price is around € 17,300.
The purchase of a 40 m2 apartment in one of these neighborhoods would cost between € 440,000 and € 530,000. For a rental investment, we consider that the center of Paris is not the best choice. First, because the purchase price is much higher than in other neighborhoods. Also, the rent does not follow this same gap: the average rent per square meter in these expensive neighborhoods of Paris fluctuates around 31 €. In less bourgeois neighborhoods, such as the 11th for example, the average rent per square meter is € 28, or € 27.3 in the 17th.
However, changes in prices from one borough to another have reduced the price gap per square meter. But this is not the case for the 8th arrondissement, which has seen its value decline over the past five years.

The most profitable districts of Paris
In contrast to the most expensive neighborhoods, part of the 18th, 19th and 20th arrondissements of the capital are considered to be more popular districts at low prices.
Indeed, in these areas, the average price per m2 does not exceed 10,000 €. This varies between € 7,918 and € 8,900 per square meter. An apartment of 40 m2 would require a budget of 336,000 € on average, or 100,000 or even 200,000 € less than in the center of Paris.
The purchase price and the rent which is around 25 € per m2 are interesting conditions in terms of profitability in the context of a rental investment. This price level ensures a better rental frequency. In addition, the evolution of the prices of the sector is an advantageous element in the case of a resale.

Paris seduces mainly students and young workers. In five years, the number of students has increased by 225,000 in the capital. This young and dynamic population can not usually pay rents. They prefer studios or two rooms for young couples who have a larger budget.
