Au­tumn eyes turn to­wards France

Yorkshire Post - Property - - NEWS -

Buy­ing ac­tiv­ity in France is tra­di­tion­ally high in early au­tumn as house hunters take ad­van­tage of the weeks fol­low­ing the peak tourist sea­son when the weather is still mild but the roads are qui­eter and ho­tel prices cheaper.

But this year in­vestors can ex­pect to find a greater range of prop­er­ties than in re­cent years and good value for money.

Leeds-based French prop­erty ex­pert Pa­trick Joseph of MyFrench-House.com says im­prove­ments in the ex­change rate and good mort­gage avail­abil­ity has made Septem­ber 2010 a prime time for buy­ers.

“There are some fan­tas­tic prop­er­ties around, par­tic­u­larly in the Loire Val­ley around Tours and Riche­lieu where there is a good sup­ply of homes that are rea­son­ably priced.

“Prop­erty prices are low in France right now but they are start­ing to rise so any­one look­ing this au­tumn should act quickly to take ad­van­tage of the in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity.”
