French Property

St Savin2

Unlike Australia, France allows foreigners to purchase established houses without restriction. These properties are generally cheaper than properties in Australia with many ready to move into for sale for under $100,000 AUD.

Many Australians, including us three times now, have done it. French banks will also lend foreigners money to purchase houses at much cheaper interest rates than here, subject to lending criteria. There is also the added advantage that foreign properties can now be negatively geared here against Australian income to make it easier to become an owner of a house in France but often this is not needed as properties can easily be positively geared.

To help you own property in France, we have property purchasing guides / products which share our experience, research and contacts available through our online shop (starting at $19.95) and advertise properties for sale and properties for rent on our website.

Read about   our experiences buying French property and overseas buying (and us) in the AFR (Australian Financial Review) as well as the recent article in the Australian.

Read about other people's experiences buying French property including Ron Mack in Limousin and Brittany, Tara's place in our region and Lil's experience.
