French property enjoys “buoyant autumn”

“Stable” French market prompts rise in interest from British buyers

The French property market is enjoying a “buoyant autumn”, according to the latest figures from My-French-House.com. With viewings up by 20-25% in October on the same month last year, Patrick Joseph of My-French-House.com says that potential buyers are being attracted by the stability of the French market at a time when house prices in other parts of Europe remained volatile.

With France accounting for more than 40% of all mortgage enquiries for British buyers looking to buy abroad, Patrick expands on the appeal of France, saying: “Buyers are looking for somewhere they can get away to easily for weekend breaks and holidays but they also want properties that have good rental potential and represent value for money and security for their investment.”
