Housing: more and more “energy strainers” sold in Nice

According to a study conducted by SeLoger, more and more homes that consume too much energy are being put up for sale by their owners. A way of giving up the renovation work that is necessary.

There is little time left to improve the energy condition of leased homes. In 2025, exit the goods labeled “G”. A date pushed to 2028 for the “F” criteria and 2034 for the “E” criteria.

Beyond these deadlines set by the Climate and Resilience Act, owners will no longer be able to rent their houses or apartments.

Renovate, but at what cost?

Solution therefore to solve the problem: carry out energy renovation work.

But the amounts claimed are significant. It takes around 50,000 euros to go from a “G” to “D” classification.

Denis Morra, president of the diagnostic company AC Environnement, explains: “To upgrade a dwelling from class G to D, in order to be able to rent it after 2034, you have to at least change the heating system, have exterior insulation carried out, and change the joinery.”

Faced with such investments, there will be two types of behavior according to Olivier Colcombet, president of the Optimhome real estate network: “On the one hand, the owners who will put their housing up for sale, for fear of not succeeding in financing the work. On the other, those who will see it as an opportunity to improve their property”.

Strong demand from companies dedicated to renovation could increase the price of the work. “Everyone will have the same date in mind, while the workforce is limited” emphasizes Olivier Colcombet.

Sell ​​rather than renovate

To escape the costs, many owners resign themselves and sell their property.

A phenomenon that is accelerating according to data from Housing. Out of 40 cities studied, 23 recorded strong growth in the field.

Palme d’Or for Rennes with + 74% of energy strainers put on the real estate market in one year. Next come Paris (+ 72%) and Nantes (+ 70%).

In Nice, the increase is contained with + 14% of housing labeled “E”, “F” and “G” put up for sale. The Riviera city is behind Lyon (+ 43%), Bordeaux (+ 27%) but ahead of Marseille (+ 12%).

Help to support

To help homeowners in their process, the government has set up Ma Prime Rénov ‘. Financial support calculated on the basis of income and ecological gain from the work.

This system launched on January 1, 2020 is accessible to all owners, regardless of income, whether they occupy their home or rent it out.

In Nice, around 14,000 homes are classified G and F. For this, the town hall has set up aid capped at 4,000 euros for carrying out an energy diagnosis.

The aid of 2,000 euros dedicated to getting rid of its oil-fired boiler for a more virtuous system will increase to 4,000 euros in 2022.

On November 10, the departmental council unveiled its Comfort Energie 06 plan. On the program, up to 700 euros will be paid for an energy diagnosis and a maximum of 11,200 euros may be allocated for the renovation.
