These several months of confinement highlighted the virtues of the campaign and heightened awareness. Looking fora better living environment, more comfort and green spaces, Parisians flee the capital and migrate to more pleasant lands. But if some have already taken the plunge, others are still looking for the ideal city in which to settle. To help you make your choice, the real estate loan broker Meilleurtaux and the job search site Meteojob have carried out a study entitled “Jobs and housing: the cities to settle in”.
Small and medium-sized towns are attracting more and more
Published on Tuesday, November 17, the study analyzed the relationship between the number of open-ended employment offers, the number of inhabitants and real estate purchasing power for each city. “Medium-sized cities have clearly been doing their job since the 1st deconfinement to the detriment of very large cities offering small areas for high budgets », Explains Maël Bernier, spokesperson for MeilleurTaux in Planet. « This ranking shows that large metropolises such as Paris, Marseille, Lyon, do not offer the best compromise in terms of employment and housing. While small and medium-sized towns offer better opportunities for both criteria », Adds Marko Vujasinovic, president of CleverConner to Planet.
