French interest rates at record low

Record low-interest rates are driving a booming French property market. With over a million sales over the past year and exceptional value property prices, there’s never been a better time to buy in France.

Interest rates in France remain at a record low – in fact, they are better than they have been for the past 40 years.  Couple that with the fact that there have been 1.1m sales over the last 12 months – there has never been a better time to buy in France. The interesting thing is that, whilst prices have been rising in the major cities for a while, they are only just beginning to follow in rural areas.  The market is being driven by a double whammy of low existing prices and incredibly cheap borrowing.

The great news is that it isn’t just French residents that can benefit from this.  Non-residents are able to benefit from the great rates too.  Our partners I.C.E. Finance are offering mortgages from 1.3% fixed for 15 years.*  To discuss this great offer with a consultant click here: gary.connell@icefinance.fr
