First quarter Paris residential real estate sales reveal that the luxury market for mansions and apartments has seen a significant increase in the first quarter of 2021, especially for properties over $2.5M €, up overall approximately 74% from recent years’ first quarters, echoing the global boom for luxury properties. This has been achieved despite the absence of many American buyers this year, primarily due to Covid-19 restrictions. French buyers have been the largest buying proportion for this segment followed by buyers from the Middle East. Once Covid-19 restrictions are eased it is anticipated that Americans will return to the “City of Lights” as lucrative luxury buyers thus continuing Paris’ upward buying trend.

Paris has seen its most significant real estate sales growth in the areas of its 6th and 16th arrondissements and in Neuilly-sur-Seine - together with the 16th and 7th arrondissements of Paris, the town of Neuilly-sur-Seine forms the most affluent and prestigious residential area in the whole of France.

Prized properties for Paris buyers are generally those which have been impeccably maintained and/or remodeled and have large terraces, patios, or lush gardens.

Consequently, Paris real estate has shown that it remains resilient and extremely strong as buyers look to diversify their portfolios into real estate as a way to increase their quality of life with superlative real property which they can enjoy personally while holding it for financial investment into the future.

With affluent buyers making more health-driven lifestyle choices amid the Covid-19 pandemic this buying trend will likely continue in 2021 and further influence the Paris and global luxury real estate markets to continued growth as long as inventory holds out.
