Description of the project : 

The rental housing market is a key factor in urban inequalities and segregation dynamics. Housing conditions and residential mobility of the middle classes are particularly affected by these dynamics, and represent a central issue for public policies. In this context, the project aims at deepening our knowledge of local rental markets, focusing on the Paris metropolis and examining the position and the residential trajectories of the middle classes in several local configurations. The study uses, on the one hand, an original database of rental housing posts, elaborated with Big Data methods (web-scrapping) and, on the other hand, develops a locality sensitive qualitative approach based on interviews. The field study addresses the position of the middle classes in the rental strategies of private actors. It also examines the way the middle classes develop their residential decisions on the rental market in several contexts and at different point in their residential trajectories, in order to understand how their experiences can foster new lines of differentiation among this group.
