The state has a large database of real estate transactions thanks to information collected by the tax authorities. This base is now open to all.
(LaVieImmo.com) – The State has released this Wednesday, April 24 an extensive database on real estate transactions, which may in particular help the valuation of property from information collected by the tax authorities. This base is presented as a list of transactions, specifying the location, nature and gross price of goods sold, without taking into account, for example, agency fees. Until now accessible only by indicating its fiscal number, it does not cover Alsace, the Moselle and Mayotte.
"Happy to announce this morning to Bercy the publication of all land data", welcomed on Twitter the Minister of Public Accounts, Gerald Darmanin. "They are now open online, so that everyone has the best information on real estate sales of the past five years" (2014-2018), he said.
15 million records
This base, established by the tax administration, which estimates it to 15 million data, exists since the beginning of the years 2010 and becomes unconditionally accessible, after years of progressive opening. "It's a little consecration," said Romain Talès, a manager of Etalab, a mission of the State to open its data, during a presentation of this database which is now accessible data.gouv site. fr.
This database is in addition to multiple sources of data, which are often a sales or communication argument for different types of real estate professionals. The main branch networks publish quarterly a necessarily fragmented balance sheet of their activity, while specialized websites – a market dominated by the Betteragents group – offer their own estimates based on feedback from professionals. Added to this are the reference figures jointly compiled by INSEE and the notaries each quarter.
In this context, the tax administration took care to present the newly opened database as an additional tool and not a panacea, its reading being arid for the individual. Organized all Wednesday, a day of work with multiple actors must give a first idea of applications that can be developed from the ground up, likely to interest sectors such as credit brokers.
