(FOR SUBSCRIBERS ONLY)
May 1 , 2008
Bonjour French Property Insider Subscriber,
It’s May Day and a fine day in Paris as the whole country is taking a break from their everyday routines.
In traditional fashion, I lunched on the Place des Vosges with a friend. This is Paris’ prettiest squares…and its most important residential address. Scoring an apartment on this 400-year-old Place is as good as it gets.
One of our clients recently did this and today we offer you two amazing properties on the Place just come available. One is particularly special for a very exclusive buyer. Be sure to read more about the Place and these incredible offerings.
Then, don’t miss the Hot Properties with more apartments available in the immediate vicinity of Place des Vosges.
If you want to learn more about Fractional Ownership, now’s your chance with "Design Your Own" — a new program we’ve just launched so that you, your friends and even perfect strangers, can pool your resources to create the pied-à-terre of your dreams.
Paris property prices are up, up, up once again. Read the report from the Chambre de Notaires at the end of January 2008.
Our lender, UCB, is now offering loans on new-builds and renovations with or without deferring the payments! What a great way to get your revenue-generating rental apartment off the ground without cash outlay.
And if you haven’t seen us yet on House Hunters International, scroll down for the next times and dates to view the program.
Next week we’ll be reporting on Normandy after a weekend of touring to the ten most important spots in this historic and beautiful region.

May Day is My Day at the Place des Vosges
An Excerpt from Parler Paris
Wednesday, April 30, 2008
By Adrian Leeds
In one day the leaves appeared. Or so it seemed.
I can remember once sitting under the thick rows of plane trees at the 400-year-old Place des Vosges one spring literally watching the leaves grow and open before my very eyes. This ‘snap shot’ was taken j
ust yesterday in a
brief moment without much contemplation. It just IS that beautiful.
It’s a tradition to celebrate Labor Day in France with a picnic on the grass at the Place des Vosges, a perfectly symmetrically square apartment complex made of brick and stone that is reminiscent of Jackson Square in New Orleans, which was actually fashioned after it. This year should be no different as May 1st is fast upon us…tomorrow in fact!
Originally named The Place Royale, the one-time gated community (you once needed a key to enter its gates) was built by Henri IV from 1605 to 1612 as a true square (140 meters x 140 meters) on the site of the Hôtel des Tournelles and its gardens. It was here that during a tournament, Henri II was wounded and died.
Until 2001, the "Pelouse Interdite" or "Pelouse au Repose" ("Keep off the Grass") signs marked the thick grassy triangles, but now you’ll find it wall to wall with sun worshipers and picnickers. There is something quite comforting about its symmetry and formal gardens, even if wedged into such intimate spaces while munching on your baguette sandwich.
A few weeks ago, one of our lucky clients scored a duplex apartment on the Place, Paris’ chicest residential address and most valuable if not most expensive property. Finding available property within its sacred walls is as almost as difficult as getting the Democratic Party nomination for presidency of the United States.
The apartment, on the top floors with views on the courtyard and the adjacent "Hôtel Particulier" on rue de Turenne, is currently under complete renovation and will be made available at some future date for rental to visitors when the Aussie owners aren’t occupying it. I bet they won’t want to give it up so easily!
Past Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, who we have to thank for having created the annual "Fête de la Musique" in 1981, lives in the same building. And just yesterday I visited another apartment in the same building, by sheer coincidence. The enormously spacious and magnificently appointed apartment in a very historical part of the building, was once owned by the son of an artist (whose name is a household word and which cannot be divulged here) is being made exclusively for sale only to very special qualifying buyers. (We were the first to see it!)
We also visited another smaller apartment for sale ‘down the road’ of vaulted archways next to the famous Michelin three-star restaurant, L’Ambroisie. it was more like a "petite maison" with floor to ceiling windows on the courtyard, down a narrow cobble-stoned street hidden behind the buildings set on the Place. You’d never know it existed there, but from its steps one could see the beautiful Hôtel de Sully peeking behind the double garage that was an added bonus.
You all know how much I love my Marais apartment in its 17th-century Hôtel Particulier building with its lovely cobblestoned courtyard and elegant staircase, but given an opportunity to trade it for a little corner in the Place des Vosges…that kind of May day would make my day.

Design Your Own Fractional Ownership Property
With "French Property Fractional"
by Adrian Leeds
Fractional ownership may be a hot concept!…but we’re making it even hotter!
A new division of the Adrian Leeds Group, LLC, "French Property Fractional" is the newest and hottest way to own your piece of Paris simply, easily and inexpensively without the hassles of purchasing it on your own, but with all the benefits of doing it yourself.
What’s Fractional Ownership?
A hybrid of direct ownership and time sharing, it combines the best elements of both. The primary differences are that while timeshares involve many shares in a large complex with “resort” amenities and costs built specifically for that purpose, fractional ownership is joint ownership by only a few individuals in a single property whose value can easily be determined on the open market.
Most Paris fractional property opportunities are properties that have been purchased, renovated and decorated by one developer who then sells off the shares. Most of these offerings sell six to twelve shares to minimize the investment amount while maximizing the size, location and quality of the apartment.
What’s new about "designing your own" property?
While this system works well for many investors, we found that there are large numbers of individuals who would like to combine the benefits of traditional fractional ownership with single-party ownership, enjoying more time to personally use the property, having more decision-making power about the property, more input and more control. We believe that YOU want to feel like the property is really YOURS — and it is!! So, why not have a more personal relationship with the property.
Here’s how French Property Fractional works:
FIRST, WE OFFER A "CONCEPT"
Our team is offering a property CONCEPT…to search and find the following property to be shared between only a very small group of owners — four to six:
"MY PIED-A-TERRE IN LE MARAIS"
SIZE: 35 to 45 square meters (377 to 485 square feet)
ROOMS: two rooms — one bedroom apartment, with bedroom on a courtyard for quiet, full bath (perhaps bath + separate toilet) and open American-style kitchen
LOCATION: Le Marais, districts 3 or 4
LEVEL: No higher than 3rd floor (European) without an elevator
BUILDING TYPE: 17th, 18th or 19th-century (no newer buildings!)
AMENITIES: lots of light, nice views, fireplace or balcony or patio, secured storage for personal belongings, all new kitchen and bath fixtures, all the luxurious comforts
4 shares, 135,000€ each, 3 months of usage per year
5 shares, 108,000€ each, 10 weeks + 2 days of usage per year
6 shares, 90,000€ each, 2 months of usage per year
USAGE: Owners determine their own usage calendar and have
complete flexibility to arrange their calendar among themselves
* Full price of the property including agency fees.
* All notarial and legal fees.
* Property search and consultation fees.
* Complete renovation and furnishing of property to luxury standards by professional interior architect and contractor within certain budgetary constraints.
EVERYONE MUST AGREE:
Members of the purchase pool must be willing to invest the full amount of at least one of six, one of five or one of four shares to be held in an escrow account to fund the property search, purchase and renovation.
The search will commence upon commitment in writing and receipt of funds from all members of the purchase pool with an agreed upon allowance for a minimum of 90 days to locate the property.
Upon location of a property that fits the above parameters, a memo with photos and description of the property will be sent to all members who may decide at that time to approve or decline the property in a timely manner — within 48 hours of receipt of the memo. Any group which is able to approve the found property with a combined total of 540,000€ will enable the purchase process to proceed.
Members of the purchase pool will provide proxy to the Adrian Leeds Group, LLC to sign notarial documents on their behalf: the Promesse de Vente and Acte de Vente — allow 3 to 4 months to completion.
Three decor concepts that fit within the renovation budget will be presented to the purchase pool for voting and will be executed by the interior architect and construction team. Any choices made by the purchase pool outside the framework of the budget will be charged over and above the initial fees. Allow 2 to 3 months to completion.
Members of the purchase pool will appoint one spokesperson for the purchase pool to make day-to-day decisions and act as a "liaison" between all members of the purchase pool.
NOTE: The Adrian Leeds Group, LLC will offer optional property management services upon completion of the sale and renovation at an additional expense to oversee the maintenance of the property, provide housekeeping between owners’ visits, manage the calendar of owner visits, pay all annual taxes, utility bills, etc. OR the group may operate fully on its own upon completion of the process.
If you are interested in participating in a purchase pool for "MY PIED-A-TERRE IN LE MARAIS," email Adrian Leeds at [email protected]

Paris Property Price Report for January 2008
By Adrian Leeds
Over the course of three months, from November 2007 through January 2008, the price of apartments in Paris continued to increase rapidly with an appreciation of 2.4%, even though this holiday period is traditionally a time when property sales and prices decrease.
Over the course of one year, from January 2007 through January 2008, Paris apartment prices appreciated 10.1% compared with 9.9% for the prior year (January 2006 through January 2007).
House prices on the Ile-de-France have not had the same success with a 9.6% gain January 2006 to January 2007, but a gain of only 3.7% January 2007 to January 2008.
UCB Financing New Builds and Renovations with or without Deferred Payments
From UCB – A BNP Paribas Company
Customers with new builds or renovation projects, involving stage payments, have the choice between:
* paying back capital and interest from first release of funds, pro-rata to the amount used,
* benefiting from up to 36 months deferment which in turn can be of two kinds:
– deferment of capital payments
– deferment of capital and interest payments.
This article specifically addresses the deferment options which are tailor-made mortgage solutions for new property built off plan (VEFA contract), construction of new property or renovation works. They optimize financial flows, enabling customers to match mortgage repayment and rental income.
Fixed interest rate for up to 39 months
These are variable rate mortgages including a deferred payment period of 1 to 36 months. The interest rate is fixed during the deferment period and the first 3 months of the repayment period. Thereafter, it is adjusted quarterly in accordance with the variations of the Euribor 3 month index. Rate variations first affect the duration of the loan rather than the monthly payments.
The customer can choose a deferment period of up to 3 years depending on the expected date of completion of the property but can end this and start repaying capital earlier if the property is completed ahead of schedule or for any other reason.
UCB do not charge a commitment fee on the unreleased funds for VEFA (off plan) or “contrat de construction de maisons individuelles”. However a 1.5% fee
is charged for unreleased funds for renovation projects.
Two options during the deferment period:
– Deferment of capital: the customer pays only interest and the life insurance premium.
– Deferment of capital and interest: the customer only pays the life insurance premium.
* Purpose: Purchase of new property “off plan” with VEFA contract, construction of a new house and renovation works.
* Minimum amount: €75,000
* Term: From 7 to 25 years including the deferred payment period.
* Loan to Value: Maximum loan to value for deferment of capital payments only.
– Leaseback: 80% of price including VAT, furniture and notary’s fees.
– Other properties: 85% of price including agent’s fees and renovation costs, subject to valuation.
Maximum loan to value for deferment of capital and interest payments.
– Leaseback: 75% of price including VAT, furniture and notary’s fees.
– Other properties: 80% of price including agent’s fees and renovation costs, subject to valuation.
* Security: 1st charge on the property.
* Lump sum capital repayment (early redemption): Possible at any time in minimum amounts of 10% of the original amount of capital borrowed.
Early redemption fees: 1% of the outstanding capital prior to repayment during the first 8 years. No penalty thereafter as long as the rate remains variable.
* Flexible options: Option to convert to a fixed rate for the remaining term; free of charge, on the basis of the TEC 10 index + margin.
* Interest rates: Special deferred payment mortgage. Please refer to our latest interest rate conditions, updated on a monthly basis.
* Arrangement fee: 1% of the amount borrowed (min €700 / max €1,500).
* Life Assurance: CNP Life assurance cover is compulsory up to the loan amount.
In the case of capital and interest deferment, the personal quotation and mortgage offer assume release of funds in full immediately and maximum accrued interest carried forward.
In all cases, the instalments after the deferred payment period are indicated in
the quote or mortgage offer. They are sub
ject to certain conditions and subject to possible modification in the definitive repayment table issued at the end of the deferred period.
How to Hedge Currency Risk If You Retire Abroad
By Kelly Greene
April 19, 2008
The Wall Street Journal
"We want to retire to Europe within the next five years. We will continue to draw a pension in U.S. dollars. What, if anything, can be done to protect us from the ravages of the exchange rate?" — Bob Powell, Geneva, Ill.
Living in Europe — an idea romanticized by the best-sellers-turned-movies "Under the Tuscan Sun" and "A Year in Provence" — is getting ever more expensive. Earlier this week, the euro hit a record $1.5983 against the dollar.
But if you’re still itching to live the expatriate life in retirement, it’s smart to think about ways to hedge your risk that the U.S. dollar could continue its lackluster performance. You can do so — for a fee — with help from a currency broker.
Moneycorp Inc., for example, a San Francisco currency specialist, helps individuals manage their foreign-currency exposure. "We basically help individuals do what big corporations do to protect themselves against foreign-exchange fluctuations," says Ward Naughton, president of Moneycorp’s North American operation…

"Settling Down in Paris"
Angela and Ben met in 2003 when they lived in Los Angeles working for the same clothing company. Now, the two are engaged to be married. When Ben started receiving frequent overseas work, the company believed he’d be more valuable in Paris, so they happily relocated. They immediately moved into a cozy rental in the 17th district near the Arc de Triomphe and started to explore the different neighborhoods of Paris. The pair is now ready to take the big leap and purchase an apartment to stay
for good. Property consultant Adrian Lee
ds is enlisted to help.
