American buyers in love with French real estate

We’re not sure if it is the strength of the dollar, or the huge success of Emily in Paris on Netflix, but American buyers have been snapping up their very own slice of French real estate in droves.

Last year, Americans were our 4th biggest buyers (after the French, British, and Dutch), and there literally wasn’t a week go by without us helping a client from across the Atlantic pick up the keys to their new home.

To make things even easier for our clients and friends in the USA, Leggett is holding a webinar on Wednesday the 15th of February at 1 pm New York Time. You will be able to pick the brains of our experts on topics as varied as getting a visa, prices in Paris and what role the Notaire plays – click here to register.

We are creating a series of videos, specifically helping buyers from North America, and you can see the first in the series here, or visit our dedicated webpage here.

Emily lives on the swanky Place d’Estrapalade in Paris – the average price of an apartment there is only around $15,200 per m2, a veritable bargain when compared to what she would have to pay in Manhattan!
