We are specialists in off-plan investment property in France. Outlined below are some of the reasons why off-plan property is so beneficial to investors.
Many developers of property in France offer beneficial payment schemes. We carefully vet these offers and work with only the most reputable and secure development companies that operate in your favoured location. Payment schemes currently on offer allow you to buy property off-plan, ie. before or during construction when the price remains low, with deposits of 5% followed by stage payments to completion.
By the time the property is finished, prices rise due to market forces and the greater general appeal of a completely finished property that is ready to move into. Investors therefore sell the property on to another property purchaser and in doing so, enjoy solid returns of around 10%, whilst never having paid the full purchase price.
Investors should however exercise due diligence and choose wisely, making sure that the property is located in an area where they will resell quickly and easily or where there is a high rental demand for their buy-to-let option. Due to a high demand for rental accommodation both in tourist and residential markets, French property can offer excellent rental yields of 7 – 10%.
Even in the “worst case” scenario, if an off-plan property cannot be sold upon completion, the final balance due can sometimes be financed by the developers themselves. Furthermore, the rental income may pay off the finance of this loan and yield further eventual return on investment.
In order to limit financial risk and debts, the developers of any project will wish to sell units off-plan. They understand that if buyers cannot see a physical property at the beginning, they will demand a lower price, while relying purely on the developer’s reputation, the property location, artistic impressions and computer simulations on which to base their decision to purchase.
In addition to the excellent off-plan price, some highly beneficial finance structures are in place. You sometimes need to pay only around 20-40% of the purchase price in the form of a deposit, while the rest is payable upon completion. This may be financed by a mortgage if necessary.
If you decide to invest in off-plan property, you will need to decide which strategy you will adopt to achieve your return on investment. Our experts will help you to choose the most appropriate plan, creating an investment programme suitable to your needs, whether this is "pure investment " or a "buy-to-let " strategy.
