The Provence Cote d’Azur region, a place to invest


Sextant Properties is a member of the SNPI (Syndicat National des Professionnels Immobiliers). We receive regular updates from them, and last week received an internal news update that may interest serious buyers. This news is relevant for potential investors in the Provence Cote d’Azur (PACA).

The rent index of the PACA region has increased by 58.8% over ten years from 1998 to 2008 and hasn’t stopped increasing…

Buying a property in Provence Cote d’Azur in 2011, means having the opportunity to rent it at a high price and to increase the rent a little more each year and increase your profits.

But not all properties will generate  the same profit margins:

2011 Rent (€/ sqm)
Studio and one room 16
2 rooms 12.6
3 rooms 10.8
4 rooms 9.3
5 rooms and more 9.2
Housing development 12.3

As shown by the table, studio and 2 room apartments where the square meter costs around €16 and €12.6 are the most profitable kind of properties.

Moreover, thanks to its low tenant turnover rate the Provence Cote d’Azur is one of the better regions to invest.

As shown by this Map the PACA region is one of the regions where tenants stay longer and where investors are the most likely to have serious people renting their property.

Here is an example of studios that you could purchase in the PACA region: Ref 31466
