To the average American buying property in France sounds exotic, but it is not that big of a deal. Sure there is a learning curve but for many reasons France provides both the buyer and seller a more secure transaction environment than in other parts of the world, some argue safer than even in the US.
We’ve all heard the horror stories where overseas real estate buyers find that their property has been demolished, or they find out that they don’t actually own the land and can’t get a title deed. This is not likely to happen in France. The French buying process is straightforward and safe.
