What does SCI mean in French Real Estate?

SCI in French real estate is an abbreviation for Société Civile immobilière.

Société Civile immobilière is a legal entity set up, for example, to buy a French property.

A common form of SCI or Société Civile immobilière that we have heard of is a SCI de gestion that brings together at least two people to own one or more properties.
