French properties highly popular amongst Belgian investors
The annual analysis of the buyers’ market in France was recently published by BNP Paribas International Buyers. In the 10th edition of this survey, Belgium proved to be the big winner. In 2017, a total of 8 billion euro was invested into French properties, 18.4% of which originated from Belgian investors. This is an increase of no less than 21% compared to the previous year and the most significant increase in 2017. Even the United Kingdom, which leads the pack just in front of Belgium with 25.9%, shows a more modest increase in the number of transactions. Number 3 on the list is Switzerland with 8.1%, followed by Germany and Italy with 7% each, the Netherlands with 5.5% and the United States with 3%.
More specifically, properties located in the region around Paris - Île-de-France is the most popular among Belgian investors. This does not come as a surprise, as this region is the most popular tourist destination in the world with 33 million visitors in 2017.
