Best value MAPS of FRANCE, and keeping the children amused

Three months after the referendum, the figures suggest no Brexit effect

Leggett Immobilier, has released their sales figures: the number of properties sold to British clients between July and October 2016 is equal to last year’s figures during the same period of time.

cover_480x270Leggett Immobilier, the French Estate Agency, was created in the Dordogne nearly 20 years ago and is the first stop for British buyers looking for property in France. With over 500 agents in the whole of the country, teams of experts at the head office and a strong presence at the main property shows in the UK, Leggett Immobilier is the leading agency specialised in the needs of British buyers in France.

During the first three post-Brexit months, the agency reported an equal number of sales compared to the same period of time in 2015:

–          July 2015 Vs. July 2016: -2.2%*

–          August 2015 Vs. August 2016: -0.7%*

–          September 2015 Vs. September 2016: +2.9%*

In September, Leggett Immobilier was at the French Property Show in London and at the A Place In the Sun show in Birmingham. Joanna Leggett, head of marketing,noticed that “the profile of the visitors has changed. They no longer come to be convinced to cross the Channel; they have already made their mind up. 62% of the buyers at the September 2016 shows said they wanted to buy within the next 6 months. In September 2015, only 45% had the same intent.”

Leggett Immobilier received over 14,384 information request from the UK over the last three months. Despite Brexit, British buyers remain very active on the French market.

    I don’t know whether you realise but the UK had not left Europe yet. As a former Chartered Surveyor I would just wait a while if I were you before suggesting that Brexit has had no effect. For a start lets just see what the poor value of Sterling does to the number of potential buyers in the market.
