What’s happening in the French property market?

Although some are viewing France’s property market with a “wait and see” attitude at the moment, the most recent report from Notaires de France shows that prices for older properties in France had fallen by 1.7% in 2013 – meaning there are some real bargains to be had across the country.
The report also showed that in a number of major cites across France, such as Montpellier, Rennes, Dijon, Marseille and Grenoble, prices have continued to decrease in 2014. However, a sign that the market is recovering comes with news that that Toulon and Strasbourg have recorded a slight price increases, and that prices have remained stable in Nice, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Nantes.
This month Property in France’s newsletter focuses on Aquitaine, of which Bordeaux – France’s ninth biggest city – is the capital. Reports show that property in Bordeaux’s urban areas have actually increased in value by almost 2% over the last year, meaning it could offer good investment potential should its current stability continue.
