Many UK citizens are beginning to look into purchasing investment homes in France. Looking to find ways to pay for them, many are looking into mortgage options. Since many are foreign, this means that the mortgage option would have to come from a French bank. France offers many options with the most popular being fixed rate mortgages. These are the most popular because the rates are currently towards historic loans. Another option is an interest only fixed rate mortgage but these are riskier. As a result many are turning to some type of hybrid between the two. In any case, French bankers look through each persons credentials to find what they qualify for.
