French property purchases go global....
It looks as though the property market is coming back to life and it's not just UK buyers that want to buy into the French dream.
Readers of this blog will know that I'm currently mandated by a South African family and a couple from Sweden as well as clients from the UK.
The FrenchEntrée Property Finders network is also beginning to take off.
My colleague Janine in Bayeux has just had some clients visit from Hawaii (and signed the compromis on the first house they saw).
John (Dordogne) has just finished a search for a chap from Holland, Caroline (Mayenne) is just signing up a client from Thailand and Rebecca (Nice) hopes to sign up a US client this week.
That's not a bad global portfolio. Of course our core business will probably always be from UK purchasers and now we just need the green shoots of recovery to continue to grow unhindered.
