Megève, the resort to invest in

Prestigious real estate is popular in Megève! The station is among the big winners in terms of sales volume in 2021.

Prices per m2 in Megève are now comparable to those in Paris. Buyers are setting their sights on exceptional chalets, favourite purchases that come at the cost of gold.

In the 2021 list of cities to set up a second home, published by Le Figaro Properties, Megève occupies 2nd place because it "offers the best ratio of prestige properties in relation to the population" *.

Unsurprisingly, prices are reaching new heights: it takes an average of € 12,086 / m2 to afford a house in the resort, but depending on the property, this can go up to € 40,000 / m2. A record!

For apartments, plan an average budget of € 8,959 / m2, unless you want to invest in a new prestige program, in which case you will have to rely more on a price per m2 of € 16,000, or even more!

A dynamic resort that continues to invest in its infrastructure and shops, Megève is also an El Dorado for investors with new programs with very high-end services that compete with the old one full of charm. The natural assets of what we nickname the sunny Megève and its four-season activities have a bearing on this unabated enthusiasm.

For bestagents.com, there is no doubt: Megève is one of the pearls of the French Alps. It even climbed to 3rd place on the podium of the most expensive resorts, behind Val d'Isère and Courchevel.



A great occupancy rate for seasonal rentals

As dynamic for rental as for sale, Megève has excellent occupancy rates and high rental profitability, in the order of 2.5 to 4% per year.

The seasonal rental had taken on its colours in the Alps in 2021 particularly, in Megève, after a tough 2020 season due to the health crisis. They have been able to fill its reservation calendar very well, even when the ski lifts were irremediably left behind the stop.

Megève's great asset lies in its range of activities for all seasons.

The resort has always claimed that it was first and foremost a winter sports village and not a ski resort, demonstrating that skiing was not its only raison d'être. Tobogganing, horse-drawn carriage, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, sled dogs are also part of its DNA. Megève represents an art of living, enough reason to want to stay there even without putting on skis.

For the rest of the year, the village still displays the same dynamism. It's secret: more than 3,300 inhabitants live there year-round. There is always something going on, and visitors do not hesitate to rent for short stays, for a weekend or a weekend getaway. Once again, people come to enjoy an exceptional setting and the charm of this village. The village has also remained authentic while evolving with the times.

So positively surprised!

We decided to give Emerald Stay a try after disappointing experiences with other operators (leak issues, low income from rental). Our house is very precious to us, especially after a reform we did in 2019. We were unsure whether any agency would take care of it as we would while we were not there. With Emerald Stay, our doubts dissipated. We signed in summer and started getting bookings right away. The house was kept in perfect condition and we are already set to earn more in 2021/22 than in previous pre-covid years. Keep up the good work, Emerald!
