JDD INFORMATION. “Thermal strainers” market share remained stable in 2022


Did we worry too quickly? With new bans on renting out the worst heat filters from January 1, many real estate professionals feared an increase in poorly rated property listings last year. But according to the study of the agency network Guy Hoquet presented by the JDD, the share of homes classified F and G put up for sale in 2022 has remained stable, representing 8% of the real estate offer. “With 15 different advertising sites, our barometer is the most comprehensive and offers a clear view of the market, features Stéphane Fritz, the president of Guy Hiccups. Some alarmism was spreading after these rental bans, but only a limited number of properties are affected. » The National Observatory for Energy Renovation points out that 190,000 rental units have a G+ rating in the energy efficiency diagnosis, the class affected by the first bans of 2023.

Apart from Paris (read below), the number of energy filters put on sale in 2022 has changed only very slightly in 2022, with increases of between 0.1 and 2 percentage points in most of the cities studied. While in some municipalities this proportion is decreasing, such as Llemotges, Metz or Caen.

For Henry Buzy-Cazaux, president of the Real Estate Services Management Institute, these figures are not surprising: “We thought that the owners, who could not make renovations, were going to sell their property. But the arguments for not selling take precedence over the contrary. » The first reason, the discount on goods that consume a lot of energy. According to Guy Hiccups, goods F and G traded 10% cheaper than average in 2022. This is enough to discourage potential sellers.

A market under pressure

“We also forget that investment in rental has structural virtues that it does not lose, moreover in a context where access to the property becomes more difficult month after month”, remembers Henry Buzy-Cazaux. Pressure on the rental market is increasing across France. According to Bien’ici, rental tension has increased by 158% in Paris, 152% in Nice and even 109% in Strasbourg, driving up rents. An argument that encourages owners to continue renting, despite the restrictions to come.

We also forget that rental investment has structural virtues that it does not lose, moreover in a context where access to the property becomes more difficult month after month.

After that, G homes will be banned from being rented out in 2025, followed by F in 2028 and E in 2034. It is unlikely that the still distant regulations will push owners to give up their property. Without being encouraged to opt for work, trapped between financing difficulties and the lack of manpower. “The risk is the breach of the law, alerts Henry Buzy-Cazaux. Some of the owners will not carry out the work and only the tenant can complain. But given the difficulty of finding accommodation, dragging a landlord to court is not easy. » Many homes are at risk of slipping under the radar without the necessary renovations to preserve quality of life and meet the country’s environmental goals.

In Paris, more F and G goods

In the capital, sales of F and G homes are higher than those in the rest of the country: 21.6% of the supply, 8.3 points more. “The colanders are much more numerous in Paris because of an old park, recalls Stéphane Fritz, president of Guy Hoquet. And the renovation works are more complicated to carry out, because most of the properties are jointly owned. » However, these improvements must be voted on by a majority of owners, a threshold that is often difficult to meet. For Yannick Ainouche, president of the diagnostics chamber of Fnaim, there is also an unexpected effect: “As prices begin to fall, homeowners may prefer to sell now rather than wait for prices to rise.”
