1. Key Figures

New Builds in France is a constantly evolving sector. In recent years, the attractiveness of low interest rates and tax incentives have encouraged investment in this segment of the real estate market.

In 2019, before the health crisis, approximately 400,000 new homes were sold in France. The prices of new homes have steadily increased, with disparities depending on the regions. For example, the Île-de-France and some major regional cities such as Lyon, Bordeaux, or Nice, have significantly higher prices than the national average.

2. Major Players in the Sector

Many real estate developers play a major role in the French new real estate landscape. Here are some of the most notable brands:

  1. Bouygues Immobilier: Part of the Bouygues group, it is one of the leaders in real estate development in France and Europe.
  2. Nexity: The leading integrated player in the real estate industry in France.
  3. Icade: Specialized in the construction of offices, housing, and business parks.
  4. Kaufman & Broad: A major player in the construction of new homes, individual houses, and offices.

3. Regulations and Specific Incentives for New Real Estate

Several legislative and fiscal measures aim to support the new real estate market in France:

  • Reduced notary fees: For the purchase of a new home, notary fees are generally lower than for older properties. They represent approximately 2% to 3% of the sale price, compared to 7% to 8% for older properties.
  • Pinel scheme: A tax reduction law that allows investors to purchase a new property for rental purposes, benefiting from an income tax reduction, provided certain rent and tenant income ceilings are met.
  • PTZ (Zero Rate Loan): This is an interest-free loan intended for first-time buyers for the purchase of a new property (or an old property with renovations). It is granted based on income conditions and depends on the geographical area of the property.
  • Reduced VAT: In certain areas known as "ANRU" (urban renovation zones), it is possible to benefit from a reduced VAT rate (5.5% instead of 20%) when purchasing a new property.

New Builds in France is a dynamic and promising sector, encouraged by various incentive measures. It meets the need for high-quality new housing and addresses significant economic and environmental challenges. It is essential for investors and future homeowners to stay informed about regulatory developments and market opportunities in order to make the best decisions.
