- Life in Paris
Investing in France now is an unprecedented opportunity, but it has it's own challenges. The business culture, legal requirements, and particular customs can make it very difficult for foreigners not familiar with the French system. That's where we come in. We are experts in navigating the French real estate landscape with our partners in the real estate industry, the legal realm of attorneys, business managers, tax advisers and relocation specialists. This takes away a lot of the uncertainty for our clients and saves them from potentially expensive mistakes.

Upon determining your needs and objectives, we will begin a search for the best properties to review for you. After selecting the properties that would match your criteria and your consent to buy, we will represent your interests, and make sure to look for any hidden issues or inconsistencies with the legality of your purchase. We are your advocates and your agents. We will stay with you through the entire process. The process can take a minimum of 2-3 months depending on if you are buying in cash or obtaining a mortgage.

It is proven that a tangible asset like real estate can not only provide a steady revenue stream, but it can also have long term value appreciation. Year-over-year Paris has seen steady growth in the value of it's property and space.
