This Epicurean dream can come true for happy few "happy few" and at a certain price, indeed this pleasure felt only a few months a year in Paris represents the quest for the holy grail for some lovers of "outdoor lifestyle"
First, a small architectural lexicon to fully understand how these subtle square meters are potentially declined in exteriors, which only have in common their very great rarity!
The Balcony terrace should be clearly distinguished: smaller, built in projection above the void, and surrounded by a railing, called a "running balcony" when it runs along a facade and in Haussmann style when it decorates the 2nd and 5th floor, of the Loggia: which is a floor slab closed by a bay window and which constitutes a sort of extension of the interior space, of the Patio, interior courtyard in the heart of certain single-storey houses or lofts , bringing light and freshness, or the Rooftop: outdoor space overlooking some buildings, enjoying a 360 ° view, maximum sun exposure and often located as an extension of the living room so as to multiply the feeling of space or of "exceptional" view
Another category of outdoor space: the garden level, overlooking the courtyard, private passage or the street, sometimes allows you to enjoy the outdoors at a price lower than that of a terrace (because on the ground floor)
Legal subtleties of "exclusive use"
Apartment with terrace in Paris: the advantage of exclusive use
The status of the terrace is an important point to know before buying, indeed if you buy the apartment with terrace in "exclusive use", you will only have to pay the maintenance of the terrace, the cost of the work. heavy being distributed among the members of the co-ownership.
Conversely, if you buy "property": any work will be entirely at your expense. Positive point: you can arrange it more freely
Few apartments have real "terraces" as this type of property is very rare, especially in the old ones, its price will be subject to a weighting index integrating its cost into the overall price of the property
In a "post-confinement" period like the one we are living through, many Parisians are looking for exteriors as the context has changed the "feeling" and the "importance" of the direct environment represented by our dear "homes". . The smallest outdoor square meter will be experienced as an oasis of "freedom" and benefiting from a private space such as a garden, balcony, terrace or courtyard is therefore a valuable asset that contributes to improving the quality of life.
The value of these outdoor spaces is directly correlated with that of the living space of the dwelling.
In general, it is considered that the price of the square meter of an exterior surface is worth between 30 to 40% of that of the m² of living space under the Carrez law
Balconies and terraces increase the value of city apartments. Yes, but how much? A study * by MeilleurAgents published on Monday provides us with answers. According to the real estate valuation specialist - who has analyzed 35,000 transactions since 2019 - the presence of a balcony or terrace causes the price of housing to rise by 8.8% on average in the eleven largest cities of France. MeilleurAgents therefore confirms that exterior surfaces are real assets in sales negotiations. Even if, depending on the floor of the accommodation, this area will not be valued in the same way.
Other parts are emerging from real specialists in exterior design such as Sophie Wolf Mathorel, an Exteriors Work company, which is an expert in the field, these additional square meter represent undeniable added value, especially if they are truly designed as clean spaces: summer dining room, additional room, small living room….
