British investors flock to snap up bargains

The Times recently published an article "Britons flock to snap up property bargains in France" and here at Allez-Francais we support the view that British buyers are currently flooding into France.

Assisted by the best £ rate for over 7 years, and with French house prices back to where they were pre-financial crisis, it makes for a perfect time to buy.

We are finding that most buyers are looking in the middle market of 250,000 to 450,000€ range for a permanent or holiday home, with a view to making the move later.  The Dordogne & Poitou Charentes are especially strong, as buyers return to the old “favourites”.

The biggest indication that the market is turning, is that several properties have sold for the full asking price, (which compels the seller to agree the deal). No gazumping here in France !

Our agents are very busy, often booked up with viewings for 7 – 10 days in advance and working 10 -12 hour days to accommodate our clients.

Allez-Francais continues to seek to market quality houses, at competitive prices, and where possible on an exclusive basis !
