Paris is on the wish lists of the world’s wealthy, but France’s chic capital’s appeal extends beyond its aura, personality, and heritage. A perennial number one market for lifestyle purchases, Paris’ area is a global hub that will increasingly attract investors. GlobalData Wealth Insight’s data show that France is now home to over 610,000 millionaires, the sixth largest concentration of any country globally. This number is forecast to increase by 22% over the next four years. According to Knight Frank real estate consultancy, there are clear signs that France’s expanding pool of high-net-worth individuals, along with improving market conditions, is translating into stronger demand for luxury properties.

The attraction for Paris needs little explanation.

When it comes to identifying tomorrow’s prime residential hotspots, Knight Frank suggests that the young and vibrant 11th arrondissement in Paris will be the neighborhood set to outperform this year.

“Home to around 150,000 residents, the 11th is benefitting from the ripple effect emanating from the bohemian buyers that have already helped push up values in the neighboring 10th arrondissement. Young single professionals gravitate towards the Oberkampf district to the north, while families veer further eastwards to take advantage of the parks and squares,” commented real estate expert Roddy Aris.

French homes’ sales increased by 63% in 2018 year-on-year based on Knight Frank data. This momentum and positivity have continued in 2019, with a number of record prices set in Paris and on the French Riviera in the first half of the year.

The image of Paris as a key bright spot globally is also enhanced by two major regeneration projects: the €26 billion Grand Paris Project which will add 200 kilometres of infrastructure, and the 2024 Summer Olympics with its Olympic Village.

If you have an eye for historic estates, these properties in the Paris area await for their next chapter.

The privileged locations of these high-end properties offer privacy, protection, and numerous luxury amenities in the heart of nature. In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks. No noise from traffic, and peace of mind. Of course, buying an elegant property in France is challenging, particularly if you don’t speak the language or understand the process, but a luxury French property specialist can do all the hard work for you.

These residences from HomeHunts are an attractive opportunity to own a piece of France and Paris history. Some of them are real chateaux-estates and others are sumptuous villas that blend the long-gone eras’ gems with modern design must-haves.
