Selling In France


There is a lot of talk of property prices dropping across France and properties do tend to take a lot longer to sell than in the UK. It is difficult to accurately forecast property prices in France, but there has been a slight decrease in property prices across the country since 2012.


With the attractive proposition of sunshine, great food and wine, history and culture, it is likely that international buyers will continue to look to France for their property purchases for some time to come. The Limousin region continues to be attractive to foreign buyers, and remains the cheapest area of France in which to buy property. 

Over the last four years, property prices have fallen by as much as 15.7% in the Creuse department. Heading further South, the Midi-Pyrenees region has largely held its own, with some growth seen in the Haute Garonne department. In the lovely hotspot of the Languedoc Roussillon, there has been a reduction in price of about 3%. The most expensive areas of Paris and the Cote d’Azur have stayed steady when it comes to prices, as you might expect, and the Aquitaine and Poitou Charentes areas are traditionally very popular with British people, both areas boasting a large expat community and offering easy access to both airports and mainline train stations for trips back to the UK.
