Is now a good time to invest in property in France?

There are four main good reasons why you should invest in a Buy to Let property in France.

  1. Property prices in France are relatively stable in the long term, helped by the structure of the French mortgage market. There are clear signs that property prices are once again increasing across the country.
  2. You can expect high rental yields from both high season weekly rentals in the Summer and long-term Winter lets.
  3. The French economy is on a steady growth trend, with attractive forecast for the coming years
  4. Over the next ten years, the South of France will experience an even stronger demand for housing.

When borrowing money in France, you have the option to fix the current low-interest rates available, for the whole period of the loan and, as most interest rates are currently below 2% on residential properties, it is a perfect time to take out a mortgage. For buy to let mortgages, the interest rates are just above 2%.

If you are considering to rent out your property, with the current market conditions, the rental income should easily exceed the cost of borrowing.

This is why investing in a managed property is at the moment, one of the most attractive investments available.

Thanks to a sustained market, the value of your property is likely to grow over the coming years and at the same time, you can start earning income from your property, often without having to worry on maintenance and management costs. In most cases, you can also enjoy your property for some well-deserved holidays with friends and family.
