In France a housing boom in low-energy dwellings is predicted in 2022

If you’re searching for a French renovation job, this may be a great chance to buy or sell a renovation project in France.


Every French flat or house for sale or rent must be energy-efficiently audited and evaluated on a scale of A to G, with A being the best and G being the worst. A new regulation that was supposed to go into effect in January would make it unlawful for landlords to raise the rent on buildings with ratings of F or G, and it will be prohibited to rent out the property entirely beginning in 2025.


Due to a shortage of skilled auditors, the rental raise restriction has been postponed until September. However, according to industry experts SeLoger, these ‘thermal sinks’ have already begun to surface in higher quantities on the market, indicating landlords are attempting to get rid of them before the new restrictions take effect.


According to SeLoger, the number of homes and apartments classed as F and G for sale grew by 8% in the year up to September 2021. Between September and October, the number of listings in Rennes increased by 74%, in Paris by 72%, and in Nantes by 70%.


“If a house’s strong thermal performance adds value to it, the converse is true on resale,” the paper continues. “Indeed, the idea of having to pay exorbitant heating expenses or being unable to rent out a house with a F or G rating will chill potential purchasers and perhaps persuade them to reduce the sale price.”


According to SeLoger, in 2021, A-rated houses would cost an average of 11% more than F-rated properties across the country, but in some areas, the gap will be larger than 50%..
