For several years now, France has been a buyer’s market. However, financial changes over the past year have brought back UK buyers. Many French houses (not all) are now priced very generously, and are achieving the full asking price. This has not happened for several years, and unless the property is considerably over priced, then it is unlikely that an offer at 10-15% below the asking price will be successful. Again, working with your agent, they will often know how receptive, or not, a seller may be to an offer.
