french real estate info in english

According to French notaries, there has been a slight increase in the sale price of French real estate when you compare the first quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2014.

The notaries believe this is just a seasonal rise since many families want to be in a new home before the return to school in September.

According to the notaries comparing the first quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2014 the notaries of France say that the number of departments posting price drops has reduced from 74 percent to 48 percent for apartments and 56 percent to 33 percent in apartments.

We believe that it looks like there in fact has not been a price increase, just a reduction in price reductions as desirable properties are purchased by buyers perhaps taking advantage of the low rate on French mortgages at this time.

This could also be interpreted as a slight stabilization of the market since there are less prices dropping but no clear indication the prices are going up.

Overall, for the year, according to the article in Explorimmo (in French) the French real estate market has declined by 2.7 percent, indeed, it depends on which area you are considering.
