The property market in France is under pressure due to recent tax changes and the broad state of the French and European economies. According to Jean-François Buet, president of the national federation of the property business (FNAIM) “the first half of 2013 will look similar to the second half of 2012”, with prices expected to post a single digit decrease on average” in spite of low interest rates and the fact that since late 2012 the uncertainty surrounding taxes has subsided. Property buyers remain very cautious and only where they perceive “value-for-money”, they seem to have enough confidence to transact.
