Is it now or never to buy Paris real estate?

It is possible that the French property market recovery will still be in effect in 2017 but a combination of three factors has made price growth predictions very inaccurate. Elections, interest rates, and market conditions all affect the French real estate market. If Marine Le Pen wins the French election it would have an effect similar to the Donald Trump election in the United States. Mortgage rates will rise due to investor uncertainty and the costs are passed on to the borrower. Another factor in the market is the fact that the French government does not guarantee real estate buyer assistance programs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Now may be the best time to buy real estate in Paris due to interest rates and other market conditions.
  • Real estate prices in Paris are going up, and prices may not be this low again, especially if Le Pen were to win the election
  • Interest rates will only continue to rise, making buying in the future to be more expensive.

“The first quarter of this year has seen the three combine to blow all expectations for price growth out of the water.”
