The seminars will be held on the 21st and 22nd July in Oxford and Sevenoaks, please contact us for further information email@example.com or 02072656595.
France is one of the most sought after second home destinations for British buyers looking to purchase abroad due to ease of access from the UK, value for money and the range of properties available. Hamptons International has over 5,000 properties available to buy in France ranging in price from £50k right up to £15 million in a range of popular locations from Aquitaine, Dordogne and Brittany to Cote D’Azur and Corsica.
Maribeth Long, International Sales Manager at Hamptons International says: “Over the past year, we’ve seen a 20 per cent increase in people looking to purchase a second home in France and due to the strength of our international network, we are delighted to be bringing both our expertise and these properties to our local investors first hand.”
“We would urge anyone who is interested in buying a second home in France to attend the seminar. It is set to be a very informative evening with some true experts on hand!”
At the event where drinks and nibbles will also be provided, Hamptons International’s French partner will present information on the buying process in France as well as tips on choosing the best location to buy. Joanna Leggett, a British national who has lived and worked in France for the past 10 years will also be giving potential buyers top tips on choosing the right property, integrating into the community and the buying process.
Joanna Leggett comments: “I am delighted to be involved in the property seminar and am looking forward to meeting with British based clients to offer them advice and guidance on the French property market.
“2013 saw a real surge in British buyers purchasing property in France and for those who are considering acquiring property I will be outlining how purchasing works for the foreign buyer and the important pointers to look out for.”
“France is undoubtedly a great choice for British investors - over the last 12 months prices have fallen by 1.7 per cent, with bigger falls in more rural areas. Perceived value aside, France is a country which offers a beautiful array of properties, great weather and a relaxed way of life and should be top of any buyers list!”
