Estimating a reference rent based on cost per square meter

It is possible to quickly estimate a rent based on an average cost per square meter. While this is one of the fastest methods, it is also the least accurate. In fact, you will need to take into account a large number of parameters in your average rent estimate to arrive at a more accurate value. Among other things, you need to take into account the type of apartment, its location, the amenities nearby, the age of the property, its amenities and many other elements that will make the rent amount increase or decrease in value.

Adjust your estimate according to the type of rental you wish to set up

Before making your Paris rent estimate, it is important to consider the type of rental you wish to set up. Indeed, a bare rental will obtain lower figures than a furnished rental estimate for similar surfaces and locations. The tax system will also be different. The evaluation of the rent of a furnished apartment is even more complicated because it is necessary to take into account the wear and tear of the furniture in the rent in order to be able to renew it adequately.

The location: A parameter of great importance for the estimation of your rents but not only!

The location of your property is of great importance in the estimation of the rents that you can collect. Indeed, the more a property is located in an attractive geographical area, the higher the demand and therefore the higher the amount of rent you can collect. The location also allows you to define a living environment, but also the proximity of amenities and areas of interest located in the vicinity. Finally, the location helps define the level of rent control in Paris. Each geographic zone allows you to position your home within a well-defined price range in relation to a reference rent per square meter.

Along with the location, we also find the surface area of the property. Since the reference rent is defined for each m2, a larger surface area will generate higher rents. Especially in the most popular locations.

It is also possible to make an estimate of the rent based on websites such as seloger which allow you to have an approximate idea of a similar property. However, this solution requires time and can sometimes be misleading because the rent determined will be greatly influenced by the current offers that are available. A mistake in the choice of the rent amount can quickly be costly, as the profitability will be directly impacted. All this is without counting Airbnb's management service fees. A rent that is too low will make you lose money while a rent that is too high will generate a high vacancy rate, which is why it is important to strike the right balance.
