Overseas Property Hotspots 2017

Posted by admin on February 8, 2017

Buying Overseas Property

In the current political and economic climate there seem to be two types of buyers of overseas property. Firstly, there are the investors, those with money who plan to make even more of it by taking advantage of the low property prices in much of the world at the moment and secondly there are those with just enough money who are hoping to secure a better way of life. This improved way of life can be in the form of a full time move or a holiday home somewhere peaceful, beautiful, warm and sunny, in short a place where everyday problems can be forgotten.

Healey Fox Clients

At Healey Fox our average client falls into the second category and in fact other than the Cote D’Azur, all of France really appeals to those people looking for a different and hopefully better way of life. What surprised us a lot in 2016 is that following the decision to leave the EU we saw an increase in clients coming to us looking to buy homes in France. It certainly was not what we had expected!

Buying your dream French property starts with Healey Fox

The main reason for the increase seems to be that so many British people are determined to maintain a solid link with Europe and we are certain that even more people will be motivated to buy in France as the UK’s official departure comes closer. Despite any economic and political problems that France may have, to UK. buyers in search of somewhere stable within Europe, it is the obvious choice…not too far away, clinging to traditional values, better climate, good value properties of the type so many people have always dreamt of owning but which now in the UK. they find they no longer have the budget for.

Where To Buy In France

Accepting then that France will be a certain hotspot for property buyers in 2017 it remains to decide which areas will see the greatest interest. When our clients choose where in France to buy they are usually driven by considerations of ease of access and climate, followed by prices of property. There is often also the underlying desire to find somewhere a little less known, to trail blaze, to find their own secret Camelot. We are certainly pointing such clients, with much success, in the direction of the Rhône-Alpes and Vaucluse the lesser known part of Provence which adjoins the Rhône-Alpes.

What Buying Property in France Offers

We believe that this relatively undiscovered corner of France offers access to the kind of lifestyle people are looking for when they buy in France. Flights arrive in Marseille, Avignon and Lyons from Ireland, Scotland, and all parts of England. The area boasts 300 days of sunshine a year, the countryside has all the olive groves, lavender fields and cypress trees that any lover of the Mediterranean could hope for and it is rare not to be able to see the mountains from anywhere in the area. Neither Rhône-Alpes or Vaucluse are overcrowded with tourists so the buyer feels they have discovered something a little unknown, and in this little known part of France house prices remain relatively low. For buyers looking for a rural home, a village house or a townhouse, for those who want to live there full time or holiday there and for those wanting to produce income from their home, charming properties to suit most budgets abound.
