Whilst we had loads of housebuyers staying with us in 2004 and 2005, 2006 saw none of them at all.
Who knows why? The UK interest rates weren’t much higher than they were the year before nor did there seem to be a big difference in the UK house prices.
It’s the same this year too ie no big difference. Yet, we’re just into the main house-hunting season (usually October to March) and already we’ve had three separate house-buying families call in with us. Whether this is the sign of a major buying spree is a good question but at least it’s a sign of the start of a movement in the French market.Copyright © 2004-2014 by Foreign Perspectives.
