1: Define your realistic budget

When searching for a property it is advisable to have a clear idea of your budget. Occasionally clients put a lot of effort into finding a home only to find that it can not be financed in the way that they had expected. Speak to the bank prior to your viewing trip as this can help you define your budget requirements and can save invaluable time.

If a mortgage is required, decide whether you want to borrow against collateral held in your home country or whether you want to borrow against the property you intend to purchase in France. In the latter case one would use a French bank. This is not as daunting as it may first seem as many banks have multilingual departments specialising in loans for foreign buyers.

Our preferred partner is BNP PARIBAS who have a multi-lingual team specializing in France. They offer mortgages for numerous projects including principal homes, second homes and rental properties.

2: Create an account with a currency broker
