Services for Property Investors in France

Avecoeur provides a number of services for property investors in France that range from property rental simulations and mortgage & cash-flow simulations to investment consultations and back office assistance to ensure your sale is executed smoothly. The combination of these services ensures peace of mind throughout the French property purchase process and beyond.


Detailed investment consultations

Many people have the dream of owning a holiday home/rental property in France but have very little knowledge of the purchase process in France and the specific roles of all the people involved and coordinating them all: the agent, the developer, the notaire, the bank etc. Avecoeur with its bilingual staff and vast experience in real estate in France will help guide you through this process and coordinate everyone so that the stress is taken out of the purchase for you. Often people are also unsure of what type of property to buy and in what location so depending on your personal and financial goals we can clarify things for you and help you make the right decision.


Rental investment simulations

Often those that purchase in France do so with investment in mind even if they also plan to use it a lot themselves. As such, understanding the financial aspects of the investment are extremely important to help you plan your financial future which is why we provide rental investment simulations. With our experience in managing property rental portfolios we can provide you with a reasonable estimate of what your rental income is expected to be for a particular apartment, villa or chalet that you are interested in and also simulate the expected costs. This will give you a clear overview and help you decide if it works for you financially or not.


Mortgage & Cash-flow simulations

As mortgage brokers we are also able to provide you with personalised mortgage simulations for each property, which when combined with the rental simulations and the running costs will allow you to see a full cash-flow analysis of your potential property investment. This aspect is key, as often agents are unable to provide good financial estimates that include all these parameters since they don’t have either the rental management experience or the mortgage broking experience to be able to provide meaningful estimates. Our experience across these various property related services allow us to do this and provide you with that extra peace of mind and the tools to make the right decision.


Legal & Tax advice

While we are not tax advisors or notaires we provide articles on our website in English and French that help summarise and clarify the various tax and legal aspects of your property purchase. Having this information to hand will help you understand how they may affect your property purchase and also show you where you can actually make tax savings. This can be either through the way the purchase contract is structured (buying through a French company or signing a Tontine clause for example) or through the rental and tax system you adhere to (VAT rebates and amortization write offs against income tax for example). We will also propose and coordinate the accountant and notaire (if you wish) to deal with setting your property purchase up in the most tax efficient way (with the help of their advice).


Back office A to Z assistance

The process of buying a property in France can seem quite complicated if you haven’t done it before and even if you have it can take up rather a lot of time dealing with the associated administration and trying to coordinate the various parties involved. Avecoeur will deal with all aspects of the purchase for you and indeed afterwards if you also choose to rent the property through us. Our aim is make the purchase of your property as easy and straight forward as possible.

Many thanks. There are so many parties involved in the property. I am still trying to make sense who is doing what. Glad that you are always available to answer my queries. Really appreciate it!

Thank you to you and Avecoeur for your wonderful help in my house purchase in France. Your help was invaluable; I felt I was always in very safe hands. The service you gave me was very personal and reassuring during the whole period; I appreciated it and am very grateful to you all.

We were pleasantly surprised just how helpful everyone had been, arranging the Notaire, help with opening a bank account, arranging house insurance even down to contacting the water and electricity company to confirm the meter readings and transfer the details to our name. The whole process was made very easy

Thanks for everything you have done for us while we were in France and we just want to let you know we appreciate it

A lovely, peaceful part of the world to rent a high-end, high spec holiday villa, with heated pool and hot tub. On the edge of a village, backing onto a forest, and within five minutes’ drive of the beach, I can’t recommend it enough – just idyllic.


We had a great holiday – you have a wonderful villa …. Thank you for the use of it. We will be recommending it to friends and family


Superbe maison, très fonctionnelle, climatisée, avec belle piscine et jacuzzi. Cuisine bien équipée. Terrain de tennis, de volley, de badminton, de pétanque dans la résidence, très bien. Je recommande vraiment


Wonderful house and great pool and garden. Just lovely and new and clean, Not forgetting the jacuzzi…


Stayed for a late summer holiday. Beautiful, immaculate rooms, fantastic location and loved the pool! Short drive to beach and shops, great area to visit. Would go again!


Just spent time at this superb villa. High value interior and nice pool and nice to relax in the hot tub after a days golf at nearby Royan Golf.
