Grand Dé­part prop­erty boost

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THERE could be global in­ter­est in York­shire prop­erty thanks to the Grand Dé­part next year.Cor­sica, this year’s start­ing point for the race, has seen a 62 per cent rise in search ac­tiv­ity on Right­move.

Shameem Go­lamy, head of Right­move Over­seas, says: “A ma­jor sport­ing event al­ways helps gen­er­ate in­ter­est in prop­erty in the lo­cal area and the 2013 Tour de France is no ex­cep­tion.

“Cor­sica was not only the start­ing point for the Tour but was also our big­gest climber in searches this month. It’s easy to see why too, with footage of beau­ti­ful moun­tains and glo­ri­ous weather, it’s hardly sur­pris­ing that users dream of start­ing a new life on this Mediter­ranean is­land.”

Wait till they see York­shire.
