Expatriate Insurance News: International buyers 'homing in on France'

Expatriates appear to be showing an increasing level of interest in property in France.

According to Legget Immobilier, one of the country's leading estate agencies, there has been an "almost 11 per cent increase" in enquiry levels from last year.

Managing director Trevor Leggett commented: "It's clear that the stability of the French property market is proving attractive to international property investors.

"This is particularly the case for property on the Cote D'Azur where our representatives have already closed a significant number of sales this year."

Meanwhile, French mortgage rates are still relatively low and the company remains "optimistic about the future".

However, before selling up and buying a property in France it is worth looking at the things to consider when relocating abroad, like international health insurance.

This could be particularly important in France where the bureaucracy makes it difficult to access that state's healthcare system.
