France: House price to income ratio

The house price to income ratio is the ratio of the cost of a typical upscale housing unit of 100 square metres, compared to the countrys GDP per capita. Normally this ratio will be much higher in low income countries than in high income countries.

The formula is: (Price per square metre / GDP per capita)*100. The house price to income ratios published by the Global Property Guide are based on the Global Property Guides own proprietary in-house research, but we use the IMFs GDP per capita figures.

France generates excellent house price statistics, produced both by the public and private sector. Quality time-series are published by the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE) and the Federation Nationale de l'Immobilier (FNAIM). Good data also comes from the Ministere de l'Equipment etc, the Chambre de Notaires de Paris, and the Observatoire National des Marches de l'Immobilier (ONMI).
