How is the market for old houses developing?

At the end of March 2022, the market for old houses grew sharply in Allier (+ 7.5% per year) and Haute-Loire (+ 6.5%). In the last department, prices rose for the fourth year in a row.

Puy-de-Dôme recorded growth of + 2.5%, which only partially offsets last year’s decline (-6.3%). The only Auvergne department with a slight decline is Cantal (-1%).

Observed at the level of geographical sectors, average prices and their evolution are very contrasting, both within one department and outside it. Three sectors are experiencing significant growth (approximately + 18%): Combraille Bourbonnaise, Issingo and Liman-Jud.

In these three sectors, the market share between properties of different sizes has changed little and by itself cannot explain the growth recorded this year.

Conversely, the most significant reductions are in the counties of Saint-Fleur (-6.9%) and Livraudou-Faure (-8.3%). Here, the living space of the purchased real estate decreased slightly from year to year, which partly explains the recorded decline.

Finally, there is a difference of almost one to three times between the average prices measured in Moriac County (72,500 euros) and in the vicinity of Clermont (213,500 euros). The latter sector is also the most dynamic in terms of transactions: it accounts for almost a third (31%) of sales of old houses in Puy-de-Dôme.

How is the market of old apartments?

At the end of March 2022, the average price per square meter of old apartments increased sharply each year in Allier (+ 14%), Haute-Loire (+ 9.7%) and Puy-de-Dôme (+ 6.2%). As for old houses, only in Cantal a slight decline (-1%).

At the end of March 2022, the Val d’Allier sector in Allier experienced the largest annual growth (+ 13.9% to 1,370 euros / m2). It is also the most dynamic sector, accounting for 60% of departmental operations with old apartments. Vichy has the highest level of prices and growth rates in the department (+ 17.9% to 1460 EUR / m2).
