Paris: 12th arrondissement

The 12th arrondissement is generally considered an affordable option, and many native Parisians call it home. In recent years coveted neighborhoods like those around the renovated Viaduc des Arts on Avenue Daumesnil have become very attractive to buyers and renters alike, and prices have seen a steep rise there over the last few years. Several neighborhoods in the 12th have a lot to offer the young, off-beat crowd: Marché d’Aligre, a daily food market in the market hall that spills over into the streets (closed Mondays); the diverse and lovely Bercy park near the Gare de Lyon, with the nearby stone warehouse converted into shops, restaurants and a large cinema; or the lovely Square Trousseau just off the rue Faubourg Saint Antoine.   Parisians from throughout the city travel to the outskirts of the 12th to visit the Bois de Vincennes, a massive public park surrounding a former royal fortress.  

Average price: €9,572/m2; -4.3% over one year; +22.7% over 10 years

Good value is still to be had in the Viaduc des Arts area with its rooftop gardens, while prices climb substantially along the quais leading up to Bastille. Prices are lower but rising close to the Boulevard Périphérique on the outskirts, or abutting the 20th arrondissement.
