Grand Départ property boost
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.
