French Property News January 2010

In this month's French Property News I have reiterated some of the basic rules for buying a second home in France, including location, short and long term rental potential, the widely differing rental markets, and doing your sums when looking at the cost of purchase against anticipated income from your investment. Interestingly, half of all second homes are sold by their owners within ten year of purchase, an indication that there is a buoyant market even at a time of slowdown in the property sector.
