French Property Demand Rises


Property demand from show exhibitors and investors has not been negatively affected following the Paris terror attacks, in fact, it has risen in a show of support from Britons.
That’s the view of organisers of leading lifestyle and leisure event The France Show, in London this month, which includes the French Property Exhibition that provides the UK’s widest selection of French real estate and has been expanded this year.
The size of the property section has increased due to demand with more property exhibitors at the event, and many repeat exhibitors taking larger stands. The exhibitors are a mix of UK and France-based companies.
“Having put on the France Show for nine years now, we really understand the special place that France holds in the hearts of the British public. It’s an unwavering love that doesn’t tend to wane, regardless of the economic or political situation,” comments exhibition spokesperson Debbie Macleod. “If anything there’s been an outpouring of support for France from the British public recently and we’re very proud to be part of that sentiment.”
“Property prices fell in France in 2015 and the GBP/EUR exchange rate hit a seven-year high, which together contributed to a surge in interest in French property among British and other overseas buyers. Buyer interest has continued into 2016 and a number of property industry professionals including estate agents, currency brokers and mortgage specialists have recently made positive predictions for the year ahead, suggesting that this trend is set to continue. Early indications point to 2016 being another good year for investing across the Channel.”
Property is an even bigger part of The France Show than usual, Ms Macleod explains. “This year sees a bigger property offering, with more exhibitors and floor space in the French Property Exhibition. This means house hunters will even more French properties to browse. Aside from that, we have the usual mix of lifestyle, from food and wine to travel and the ever-popular can-can dancers, as well as all the expert-led property seminars.”
