Buyers looking for property in the French cities are often looking for quite different qualities in their property than buyers in rural France, in the mountains or on the coast.
City properties can be second homes but are often purchased as investments. Paris and Nice, for example, have a huge tourist trade looking for short-term accommodation. Cities such as Strasbourg, Bordeaux and Marseille each have their own qualities which may appeal to a niche market of property buyers, not least the buy-to-let investor who does not necessarily want to live in the city.
Commercial and academic centres have a year-round rental market and a desirable property with a long-term let (or series of short-term lets) can easily pay its way month to month. Where coastal resorts may have a limited season, a property in one of France's many historical cities has appeal for the whole year. Specialist investment properties are now available in France for both the student accommodation and the retirement housing markets, many of which are concentrated around cities.
In France, most overseas property buyers are attracted by the space, natural beauty and slower pace of life offered in rural and coastal locations. Its cities, though, offer a more dynamic lifestyle, diverse cultures and commercial opportunities, and, in Paris, a truly world-class city which, though expensive by French standards, is very competitively priced in comparison to London and New York.
Leggett Immobilier have a range of off-plan apartments available in cities cross France, and we can arrange very competitive finance packages for the investor looking to purchase one or many apartments.
