Alpine properties show greater value-for-money: strong demand recognises dual value of Alpine locations.

Alpine properties show greater value-for-money

New analysis by an international real estate company has revealed that currency fluctuations are favouring specific nationalities who are considering French buy-to-let investment. The latest prime ski rental index report shows that the British investors in Alpine properties can benefit strongly from the strength of the pound, as well as a competitive investment return.



British buyers benefit from a reinvigorated market

The report notes that, with a strong demand for “off-plan projects”, investment buyers in the Alps are more strongly trending towards a year-round income as opposed to a simple holiday home. Despite muted sales activities since the 2008 economic crisis, infrastructure investment and a broadening pool of demand has aided the reinvigoration of the property market. Figures show that the 2013 and 2014 market focused on resorts in close proximity to Geneva Airport, with European buyers accounting for over 60 per-cent of all applications.



Price bands drop as interest increases

Prior to 2014, data shows that demand for property under €2.5 million sat at 47 per-cent, with figures after 2014 seeing that demand rise to 72 per-cent, while the number of buyers looking for properties in the bracket over €20 million shrunk in the same time period from 7.6 per-cent to 3.8 per-cent. It should be noted that property prices for luxury homes in the Alpine region can vary quite significantly depending on the distance from Courchevel.
