5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and informative read
I have been looking into buying a 2nd home in France and have read a number of books on the subject. After reading the Red Guides book I felt compelled to leave a review as it really helped clarify the processes and legalities of buying a property abroad. The book begins with an overview of the property market in France and is bang up to date in its detail. Each chapter...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
The first part of this book comprises a series of relatively gushing articles with limited real information, some by people with a vested interest in selling you property. In many places where it comes to hard facts e.g tax rates, you are referred to 'seek professional advice'.

The first part of this book comprises a series of relatively gushing articles with limited real information, some by people with a vested interest in selling you property. In many places where it comes to hard facts e.g tax rates, you are referred to 'seek professional advice'.
The second, larger, part of the book goes through regions of France, which is useful if you are undecided on where to look, and the section on transport links is genuinely useful.
I'd look eleswhere for something more solid.

This review is from: Buying a Property in France 2005: The Ultimate Guide to Buying , Selling and Letting (Red Guides) (Paperback)
I have been looking into buying a 2nd home in France and have read a number of books on the subject. After reading the Red Guides book I felt compelled to leave a review as it really helped clarify the processes and legalities of buying a property abroad. The book begins with an overview of the property market in France and is bang up to date in its detail. Each chapter concentrates on a different area or region and goes into detail in to the infrastructure, transport links and property price guides - all essential information when you are thinking of buying to let or, like me you want to be able to visit as frequently and as cheaply as possible. The book has helped me to select the region most suited to my needs and lists great local contacts who have helped with the legal and finacial side of things. If you are looking at buying a home in France, for investment, holidays, retirement or to let this book is a great starting point - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most informative guide on property in France, 13 April 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Buying a Property in France 2005: The Ultimate Guide to Buying , Selling and Letting (Red Guides) (Paperback)
This book is great for dreamers and do'ers alike. I have been thinking about owning my own home in France and letting it out until i can afford to move there permanantly. The book starts off by giving you a really up to date run down on the economy and legalities of buying in France and then takes you through each area with objecive information on what you can get for your money. the 'We did it' stories are inspiring yet practical and informative and I felt that it was much easier to understand and more practical and detailed than some of the other titles on the market.
