Spatial Heterogeneity in Hedonic Prices of Apartments in the French Private Rental Market This article exploits the data collected by the local monitoring rental centers in 11 urban poles in 2015. Whereas the variance of the rent per m² for an urban pole is mainly explained by the structural characteristics of the properties, socio-economic and accessibility variables are also important determinants, especially in large agglomerations, with very different effects between the poles. Inside the poles, the variance of the rent per m² is better explained by the structural characteristics in the periphery than in the center. Inside Paris, the variance explained by socio-economic characteristics is even greater than that explained by structural characteristics. Link to the article
