The next French property hotspots


According to the latest Rightmove Overseas Search Report, France was the second most searched for country on the website for overseas property and the Midi-Pyrénées was the most searched for department with 43.34% of people looking for property in this region – which might explain why I am so busy right now. In addition, the areas of the Midi-Pyrénées which are currently the most sought-after happen to be the Haute Garonne, the Gers and the Ariège, all areas that I cover and which makes me think that the secret might be out.

While this part of France appears to be growing in popularity, property prices still remain in line with the national average across the country. According to the Notaires de France, the current average property price in France is €156,800 and this rises to €157,000 in the Midi-Pyrenees. In this latest report, it is noted that interest is growing in these regions as the smart money looks to invest in a region of France that offers excellent value for money, is very accessible with a great climate and was also voted last year as having the best quality of life in France.

It is also a region that offers something for everyone which is why it is possible to find the perfect property for those clients looking for Chateaux, those looking for converted farmhouses and those looking for mountain barns or ski apartments all with hugely varying budgets.
