Older buyers still in love with France
ABOUT 70 per cent of prospective overseas buyers are aged 50 or over according to The Overseas Guide Company.
When it comes to financial support, 73 per cent of respondents say they will rely on pensions and investments to support themselves.
Richard Way, editor of The Overseas Guide Company says: “The evidence paints a clear picture of today’s typical overseas buyer as a financially selfsufficient retired or semi-retired person looking for a discounted home abroad where they can enjoy a better way of life than in the UK. France remains one of the most popular destinations affording a wonderfully warm climate and relaxed lifestyle.”
