  • Edition April, 2016 France: Existing housing sales and prices

    The market would be slightly less dynamic in 2016. Transaction volumes would remain high, although slightly down, by 5%, in the pre-owned segment. This is because housing demand from first-time buyers could dip, linked to the slight increase of interest rates. Pre-owned home prices could be slightly up, by 1-2%, in 2016.
