Sales of homes in the Alps are up by a third, on the back of a very strong £ and a rush by Brits and other lovers of France to invest in a year-round home or holiday home with income.
France’s leading estate agent, British-owned and run Leggett, reports that compared with other French areas, the Alps remains one of the most sound to invest in. And so far in 2014, Alpine property sales are up by 33% on last.
Many people are now looking for year-round use, and many of the resorts where Leggett properties offer this with a range of activities for both families and adrenalin-seekers. And nearly as important as personal use, buyers also rent out their property to gain some return.
And it is a lot easier to buy in the Alps than it may seem as Leggett’s locally-based bilingual agents can help clients source all of these factors ensuring they find the right property for them.
And with the pound at its strongest for years, now is the perfect time to be snapping up your own ski property in time for the approaching season.
