Many of our clients are cash purchasers. In fact probably over 90%. But even if you can purchase for cash, there are numerous advantages of taking a mortgage in France.

Borrowing money in the country of residence (typically UK Buyers for 2nd homes), often involves securing a mortgage against a main home. This means leaving less equity available for future investments or for unexpected events.

It is essential to maintain a balance between liquid assets and real estate. If you take a French mortgage, it will enable you to keep cash / liquidity in order to seize other investment opportunities.

In certain cases you could reduce exposure to French property taxes - A French mortgage has certain tax advantages (for ISF and rental income). For more information please contact a tax adviser.

We can arrange finance for the purchase up to 6 months (existing property) or 12 months (new build) after the signature at the Notaire’s office.
