Buy with Confidence… this is what the experts say…

"According to recent reports, the compound average appreciation in property values in France for the period 2000 – 2007 was 9.8% per year."

"Sale and leaseback is equivalent to a French state-sponsored buy-to-let scheme. The big difference being that it operates within a set framework and instead of adopting a get rich quick mentality, aims to be a low risk long-term investment."

"Leaseback has been a major feature inside the French property scene for many years and is now becoming popular with British and other investors."FrenchEntree, 2010"British property buyers searching for second homes overseas are ditching more exotic locations and once again flocking to France. Buyers are taking advantage of lower property prices and, faced with a struggling pound, cheaper euro mortgages."
