In the2014 edition of its“Investing and Living Abroad” Observatory, Bnp Paribas International Buyers, the number one provider of real estate financing to non-residents (20% market share), develops a comprehensive analysis of the market for non-residents buying real estate in France.
According to them and,“against all odds, France ranks high, not only for its art of living and the beauty of its regions but also for its taxation…”.
The report confirms that the number of real estate transactions has decreased somewhat, but with a movement of buyers upmarket.
The British are consolidating their first place with nearly 25% of the transactions carried out (mainly in the greater west of France). Belgium, as in previous years, is close behind the United Kingdom. The latter is even more present in 3 regions, the North of France, Auvergne and Languedoc Roussillon.
The study also found that:
- Acquisition costs are lower in France than in Italy, Portugal, Spain and Belgium.
- French taxes on property income are comparable to those in Italy and Portugal. They are lower than in the United States.
- In France, local taxes are relatively low compared to the United States.
- In terms of real estate capital gains, the impact of the tax will be lower in France than in the United Kingdom (if the bill is passed, which is likely to come into force in 2015), equivalent to that of Portugal, and lower than in the United States.
