This week has been a superb week for France and the French property market.
On Sunday 7th May, France elected Emmanuel Macron its new President of France. The centrist politician won two-thirds of the vote, far outstripping his far-right rival, Marine Le Pen. The 39-year-old is the youngest person ever to be elected leader of France, and his campaign was one based on changing the status quo and introducing a new era of politics for the country. What changes will he be bringing about for real estate investors?
Here are three different articles from a variety of publications, all talking about the positive reaction to the French elections and the good news this spells for the French property market. All articles have input from Home Hunts.
