Luxury Apartments and Real Estate in ParisAh, Paris. While we can’t have a Frog Blog without mentioning Paris, what can we say about the French capital that hasn’t been said a thousand times before?
We all know how amazing Paris is. It’s consistently on lists of the most romantic cities in the world, the most visited capital city, the most cultured, the best place for shopping. And did we mention it has some of the most recognisable and popular tourist attractions in the world? Think of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame for starters.
But the city of Paris is also home to more than two million people, with the wider population of its suburbs estimated to be around ten-and-a-half million. It’s a great and diverse place to live, with great transport links and something for everyone, from the wealth of culture and history to the cool bars and amazing restaurants, the laid back attitude and chic style. It’s little wonder, then, that the property market in Paris is buzzing.
There’s excellent choice for property investors looking for homes either for themselves or for the real estate rental market in Paris. Properties range from classic to contemporary, stylishly understated to opulent, beautiful 18th and 18th century buildings line the streets and boulevards, and you’ll find more affordable studio apartments in the city, too. Take a look at our selection of properties for sale in Paris.
Obviously as you are looking to invest in one of the most visited capital cities on the planet, prices are higher than elsewhere in France but, like London, New York, Singapore or Tokyo, you can't really go wrong: the value of property just keeps going up. But you really do need to know what you’re doing as property sells like ‘hot croissants’ here and competition only looks set to increase as an influx of international buyers move to the city in anticipation of Brexit.
So it’s very important to be able to act quickly when you see something you like. But before that, be prepared! If you don’t speak French very well and are not familiar with property laws in France, the buying process in Paris will be more difficult. A good start is knowing that property is valued in price per square metre, with prices varying depending on which arrondissement you’re buying in.
