Investors now buying in France.

For as long as us Brits have been buying retirement and holiday homes in France the appeal has mostly been the price difference. For many years it is common knowledge, depending where you buy in France of course, that prices are much cheaper across the channel and you get a lot more for your money – Dreams of a farmhouse with hectares of land come to life when buying in France. Though recent years has seen prices rise in France, most recently they have fallen again and top this with the strong pound, there is a big appeal for buying French property once again.

Recent writes up in Hargreaves Lansdown and Property Showrooms report positively on French property and how more and more Brits, especially investors, are seeing that it is safer to buy ‘a la France’ over delving in to the escalating property prices in the UK. What France also offers is those in the UK who haven’t the capital to afford a property in the UK the chance to own their ‘home’ in France instead that will likewise give them something that is theirs and enables them security for retirement years, chance to rent out, place to live if they decide to quit the UK.

Prices in France are still very low and if a rural setting is your desire then you can easily find property from just £15,000 onwards and without doubt, compared what a bedsit in central London will cost you, you can buy an attractive property with land and extra luxuries that you can no longer do back home.
