Our partner agencies are our eyes and ears on the ground when it comes to buying property in France.
Read below the latest market update from our partner Property Sales in France:
“April 2017 saw a very positive outlook and figures from the Notaires of France stated that 2016 had been a bumper year with a 7.7% increase in sales. I have a feeling that this may have slowed slightly for 2017; but 2018 is starting to look like it will also be a good year as viewings and sales are very strong for the first 3 months.
It is too early to predict if this will continue to the middle of the year; but with May and June already filling up it feels quite positive. It is also worth noting that the end of 2017/beginning of 2018 has seen in my opinion a significant interest from Britons moving from Spain to France; something that I have not noticed previously.
The British remain very strong in the French market; albeit with slightly less to spend than previously due to the exchange rate. They still love France and still want to put their hard earned cash into their French dream; whether that be a permanent of holiday home.”
