THE PRICE OF A GOOD ED­U­CA­TION

Living France - - The Essentials -

Liv­ing close to a good col­lège in France could mean pay­ing be­tween 7% and 27% more for a prop­erty, ac­cord­ing to a new study by the site MeilleursA­gents.com. The study ex­am­ined the prices of prop­er­ties sit­u­ated less than 300 metres from the best French col­lèges (based on their brevet re­sults) in Paris and eight other cities across the coun­try.

In Bordeaux, Lille and Lyon, you should ex­pect to pay 7%, 8% and 9% more re­spec­tively than the av­er­age prop­erty price in those cities, while at the other end of the scale you could pay 17% more in Paris for a home close to a good school. Mont­pel­lier and Toulouse, how­ever, are more ex­pen­sive still, with prices recorded at 22% and 27% above the av­er­age. Ac­cord­ing to the study, the av­er­age price in Toulouse, for ex­am­ple, is €2,646/m2, but this rises to more than €2,900/m2 for a prop­erty within 300 metres of the best col­lèges. Mean­while in Mont­pel­lier, the av­er­age price comes in at €2,698/m2 but rises to €3,300/m2 close to a good school.
