BENEFIT OF BUYING OFF-PLAN

There are many benefits to buying off-plan in France not least because it is generally what the French prefer to buy and therefore helps when re-selling. Below we have listed the main advantages:


1)    10 year build guarantee
2)    Reduced notaire fees (1% to 3% rather than 8%)
3)    Highly energy efficient (category A or B)
4)    Stylish modern design
5)    Modern technology incorporated into the property (e.g electric shutters/pool covers/climate control)
6)    Possibility to completely personalise and design your property (if bought off-plan)

7)    The build completion guarantee ensures that your property will be finished and to spec regardless of what happens to the developer or contractors. This is a financial guarantee taken out by developers in France with a large bank or insurance company and is a legal requirement in France before the notaire will allow any money to be taken from purchasers. France is the only country in the world that does this making buying off-plan here very safe indeed.
