Once you have chosen the dream property for you, all that remains is the financing. There are all kinds of options including financing from the UK through equity release which would be deemed a cash buy or the most popular option which is to finance using a French loan.
Just like here there are many different mortgage options available in France including fixed and variable rate. This method is good if you do not wish to re-mortgage your home and are thinking of letting out the property in your absence. The rental income you receive will, of course, be in Euros, making it easier to calculate your mortgage repayments. To obtain a French mortgage, you would need a minimum of 20% deposit.
We are in contact with several French banks specializing in property mortgages and if you wish we can help you to set it all up.
