This quarter in particular, there was a significant decline in the quality of data for the Île-de-France region, including Paris, because data transmission was less complete than usual.

Still more than a million of annual transactions at the end of June 2020

In Q2 2020, the decrease in the annual number of transactions that began in Q1 2020 continued: in June, this number was 1,009,000 on a yearly basis, after 1,040,000 at the end of March and 1,068,000 at the end of December 2019. Compared to the stock of available dwellings which increases by around 1% a year, the proportion of transactions was, since the beginning of 2019, higher to the high level observed in the early 2000s, despite the slight decline observed this quarter.

Volume of transactions of second-hand dwellings over the last 12 months

  • Scope: France (excluding Mayotte).
  • Sources: CGEDD, based on notarial databases and DGFiP (MEDOC).

Revisions

The second-hand housing price index is revised in order to include observations recorded after the previous publication.

In comparison with the results released on 6 July 2020, the change in prices in Q1 2020 in France (excluding Mayotte) was not revised. The overall change in prices in Q1 2020 stood at +1.9% compared to Q4 2019, i.e. the same estimate as the one published on 6 July 2020.

For further information

The calculation of indexes is based on the transactions completed during the quarter. The methodology is based on models explaining the price of housing according to its characteristics. The current value of a reference housing stock is estimated thanks to these models. Methodological principles of calculation of indexes may be found in « Les indices Notaires-Insee de prix des logements anciens », Insee Méthodes n° 132 released in June 2019 (in French only).

At the time for publication of this Informations Rapides, around 30 indexes for big cities are not yet available. Between two publications, at the middle-quarter, the Insee Macro-economic database (BDM) and the historical data available on the web page of the index are updated so as to incorporate this information and update the data previously released.

Next issue: 26 November 2020, 8:45 AM.
