The French Property Exhibition, sponsored by Blevins Franks, returns to Olympia London
Posted on 20 August 2019
The show, the largest French Property event in the UK, has been running for over 20 years – it is free to attend and offers visitors a wealth of information from industry experts to inform and inspire anyone interested in buying a property in France. Whichever region appeals and whatever the budget, it’s the perfect opportunity to find the dream property.
The expert seminar programme runs all day and covers a range of topical issues, offering visitors the chance to get free and up-to date advice on all aspects of the buying process from picking out the ideal home, understanding French tax and the legal system, to how Brexit is set to impact the market.
The show offer visitors a unique opportunity to discuss their plans with agents specialising exclusively in France, browse thousands of properties for sale and pick up valuable advice from the experts in moving, buying and financing.
“The affordability of French property (even with struggling exchange rates) is still a key factor driving British buyers across the Channel – where else could you find a castle for the price of a small London flat?” says Karen Tait, editor of French Property News magazine. “Some buyers are keen to escape Brexit Britain, while others are simply seeking the laidback lifestyle and fabulous food and wine available across France. Whether your dream French property is a cute cottage in Brittany or a villa overlooking the Mediterranean, there really is something for everyone – and for every budget.”
France has always had its appeal for the British, and with the Brexit deadline approaching, agents are noticing an increase in British buyers and the current number of bargains available is also driving the market.
A record number of homes changed hands in France last year and the property market is buoyant. House prices have been creeping up but are still much lower than in the UK, especially in rural areas away from cities and coastal hotspots.
Whether you are seeking a permanent residence, holiday home or buy-to-let or investment property, we guarantee you will walk away feeling more informed and one step closer to making your French property purchase a reality.
