VINGT Paris Mentioned in Living France, December 2014
Susie Hollands, of Vingt Property (www.vingtparis.com) says Paris can be affordable, especially if you know where to buy. “You can get a one-bedroom or a small two-bedroom apartment for around €300,000-€400,000,” she says.
“More modestly, the budget for a centrally located one-bedroom apartment with a view and only redecorating needed is 600,000 to 650,000 euros ($811,225 to $878,826), said Susie Hollands, of property services company Vingt Paris.”
Many of our clients worked hard in London, but they are now older and their kids have left home, so they’d like to treat themselves to the Parisian good life.
Many wealthy people have left France,” she says. “That has stimulated a flood of interest because there are heritage properties coming on to the market which have never been sold before. I also think that Paris is the type of place which never goes out of fashion.
“Locals go for the modern international hotel room look. This home, full of romance, is what an overseas buyer perceives a French apartment should be.”
“Charlotte Whitaker, a Chicago attorney, dreamed of buying a pied-à-terre in Paris for nearly 30 years. She decided to look in earnest when the euro softened against the dollar last summer, and closed on this 800-square-foot apartment last December. Ms. Whitaker said she found her designer through Vingt Paris, which helps nonresident clients buy, sell and renovate property.”
“In a crowded marketplace, creating a strong brand with a great reputation that regularly takes business away from household names like Christie’s and Sotheby’s is my greatest source of price.”
