"FOR Home Hunts, a successful 2013 and a strong start to 2014 is signalling the start of a buoyant year, which could confirm France’s longstanding position as a stable and thriving prime property marketplace. During the first few months of 2014, Home Hunts received almost 50% more enquiries and sales for prime market properties than in the same period last year. Furthermore, throughout 2013 Home Hunts also received a record number of visits from overseas buyers, all seeking to capitalise on the unique economic and political conditions currently available in France."
"As houses prices dropped by around 5% in 2013, there are currently plenty of interesting investment opportunities available. Uzès and Montpellier have been selected by Nicola Christinger-Grant, Manager of the Languedoc office for Home Hunts, as the most popular locations for prime property investment in
the region. “With the choice of some great small airports, like Avignon and Nîmes, both with TGV stations, access is easy for buyers, plus there is the international airport of Montpellier,” says Nicola."
