The French real estate market has had the strongest year since the eurozone crisis. This is due partly to international buyers. International sales were 30% of all French real estate sales in 2016. 17% of these foreign buyers were actually non-resident French, mostly residing in London. This is considered one of the first effects of Brexit. There are around 400,000 French nationals in London. Brexit is causing uncertainty in the UK economy, which makes it more likely that these French citizens will invest their money in France instead.
“Foreign purchases accounted for 30% of French real estate activity last year.”
