Time to take the leap!!

Every week we are asked if we think this is the right time to buy a property in France and for 2015 the answer is a resounding YES.

Well we would say that wouldn’t we? So without going too CSI let’s look at the evidence.

The French House Price Muddle

House prices in France appear to be resisting any major fall, but precise and reliable information continues to remain scarce.

According to the latest review of the market from the French notaires, house prices fell by around 1% in the year up to the end of June 2013, but increased by 0.7% in Q2/2013 over Q1/2013.

It appears that the Brits’ love affair with overseas property is alive and well. Rightmove Overseas reported record traffic in March, with 5.4 million searches performed on its website.

Spain and France topped the list accounting for 27.3 per cent and 17.8 per cent of enquiries respectively.

And according to the most recent Overseas Guides Company Quarterly Index, demand for information about buying overseas property was higher in the first quarter of 2013 than in any quarter during 2012. And there was a staggering 50 per cent increase on the same quarter last year and even a 20 per cent hike in enquiries between July and September 2012, typically the busiest quarter in any year.

Mortgage rates reach historic low

Vicky Leigh shares the low-down on the latest mortgages rates in an article on the Complete France site.

Mortgage rates available to British buyers of property in France have reached their lowest level for almost 70 years.

A decline in the number of transactions and the ongoing economic concerns across Europe have prompted lenders to make significant cuts, helping mortgage rates to reach historic lows. The best deal on a 20-year fixed-rate mortgage is now 3.35%, and 2% on a 30-year tracker mortgage. These rates are 0.25% below previous lows, last seen at the end of World War II.

Buyers market in France

Interesting reading from French Property News, which reports that the prospect of owning a property across the Channel has become even more achievable.

It refers to figures released by FNAIM (French national real estate federation) which show that property sales in France fell by 25 per cent in 2012. For those keen to get a foot on the French property ladder in 2013, reduced prices combined with the historically low mortgage rates that are currently available, could provide a great opportunity.
