Farewell dinner at the hotel
Farewell dinner at the hotel

I’m happily installed in “Le Provençal” (https://adrianleeds.com/wp-content/uploads/newsletters/parlerparis/apartments/rentals/provencal.html) while my apartment begins the renovation process. Surprisingly, I’m discovering it’s even more perfect than I had imagined, even though all the renters have said that’s so (read the reviews!). So far, the only thing I’ve found missing is a set of juice glasses (not serious) and a trash can next to the desk where I am amazingly completely operational with computer, printer and all the necessary office supplies (I managed to find a perfect basket made of all the Provençal colors).

Still, a few improvements are scheduled to begin tomorrow thanks to the mosaic tile artist, Véronique Husson (http://www.intemporelle-deco-mosaik.com/), who designed and installed the tile and stained the walls yellow. Where the café chairs have scratched the walls, she will add more tile motif to protect them. A few stains on the walls will be retouched. Véronique is poised to create the same mosaic magic at my next rental apartment project — the Viager — if I ever can take possession of it!
Tomorrow the renovation preparation begins and then Monday the work begins in full force. Martine di Matteo is overseeing the whole project and one of our newer contractors is committed to five weeks of construction, to be ready for my return from Miami at the end of February. Martine and Benoit are organized, the completion date and price both set to hold firm. Materials costs are where the real price increases happen as better materials are inevitably chosen every step of the way. You’ve heard me say it before…twice the time, twice the price. Yes, this will take twice the time and twice the price that was set in my mind at the beginning. But, I’m convinced it will be worth it.
Today I signed on my own loan at the Notaire’s office to purchase an apartment in New York City for my daughter to live in. This is a perfect opportunity to make use of the increase in value of my French properties, having taken an “Equity Release” loan. The bank assessed the value of the properties and subtracted the principal repayment balances to determine how much I could borrow. Because of the rate of exchange, the euro loan pays 90% of the price of the property! As the dollar increases in value, the loan will cost less. Meanwhile, the Manhattan property is sure to increase in value, too.
Moneycorp currency specialist (https://adrianleeds.com/frenchproperty/loan/moneycorpconvertor.html) is helping me make the most of the transfer of the mortgage funds to the U.S. by splitting the transfer into two parts to reduce the risk of the exchange rate. Using their service, I am saving thousands of dollars in transfer fees and making smart profitable decisions thanks to their sage advice.
News from Moneycorp is that the Australian Dollar Gains as the Pound Weakens. Read their full report in today’s issue along with our report on the latest Paris property prices and how they continue to climb. All of you waiting for the U.S. dollar to gain in strength are losing appreciation potential every day you’re holding out from doing something! We are constantly discovering new solutions to overcoming the weak American dollar so that you can own assets in the strong euro. It’s because of the strong euro assets that I have the ability to provide my daughter with a home in New York City! Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn how you can participate.
Our focus today, however, is on each of the Paris districts — which will bring you the most pleasure and profit. The report is an important one for all of you unsure about how to get your best Return on Investment. We also have new “gossip” about the Château d’Ansouis sold at auction this past week, but NOT to Pierre Cardin, as it was presumed!
There’s more in store, so settle back, take a slow read and dream about your next pied-à-terre in the City of Light!
A bientôt…

P.S. To all our Aussie readers, Happy Australia Day, January 26, 2008! “The tradition of noticing 26 January began early in the nineteenth century with Sydney almanacs referring to First Landing Day or Foundation Day. That was the day in 1788 Captain Arthur Phillip, commander of the First Fleet of eleven convict ships from Great Britain and the first governor of New South Wales, arrived at Sydney Cove. The raising of the Union Jack there symbolized British occupation of the eastern half of t
he continent claimed by Captain James Cook on 22 August in 1770.” Read more about it at http://www.australiaday.gov.au/pages/page593.asp

View of Sacre CoeurHow to Understand the Reported Property Prices
By Adrian Leeds

I can’t stress this enough. Before you read the following article and look at the most current reported property statistics, please learn HOW to understand them so that they will be useful to you.
The property price figures for Paris and the Paris region (Ile-de-France) are reported quarterly by the INSEE, the French National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (http://www.insee.fr/en/home/home_page.asp). Just this January 15th, the statistics were released for the end of 3rd quarter 2007, almost four months after the closing of the month. Given that the properties to which the statistics relate were purchased about three months earlier than the deeds were recorded (the time between the signing of the Promesse/Compromis de Vente and the Acte de Vente, you can assume then, that these figures are already out of date by six to seven months.
In light of that fact, now let’s look at how it affects the market values you will experience when you set out to look at properties. This report averages Paris per square meter prices at 6,181€ with an annual appreciation of 8.7%. Seven months is 3/5 of the year. If you were to visit properties today, you can already expect the prices to be about 5.2% higher (3/5 of 8.7%), or 6,502€ per square meter.
Other factors that contribute to this variance are: 1) the reduction in the purchase price, which can be attributed to direct payments made to the sales agent to help reduce notaire fees,
2) the listing of inventory of fixed furniture such as built-ins and appliances and
3)the under-the-table cash transactions, which are illegal but do occur.
4) Finally, the figures are diluted as they are reported by an arrondissement in its entirety and do not account for differences by neighborhoods or quality of properties.
I’m no mathematician nor economic analyst, and I’m sure among you there are readers who can correct my rather plebeian theory, but we know for a fact, that the actual market values are considerably higher than those the Chambre de Notaires report. We know based on property searches and visits we perform daily.
So, when setting out to find your perfect Paris apartment, keep in mind that what really counts are the asking prices of comparable properties.
Paris Property Prices Show Off Those Properties with Rental and Residential Potential
By Adrian Leeds

Second quarter 2007 may have seemed like a weak increase in price and activity by comparison to past periods of property sales, but third quarter rose almost twice that — 3.4% appreciation of price in one three-month period. Even the annual increase is holding steady — up 8.7% from third quarter 2006 to third quarter 2007 at an average per square meter of 6,181€.*
*Remember, this average is 30% to 50% below the current market value. Our current estimate of a true market average at this time is approximately 8,000€ per square meter.
paris property price chart
The district which continues to lead as most expensive is the 6th (Saint-Germain-des-Prés) at 9,144€/m2 with an appreciation lower than the average of 7.6%. From a statistical point of view, this district would not appear to be the wisest of investments. It is, however, the second most requested area for short term rental apartments.
Therefore, occupancy rate is likely never or rarely to suffer. The location itself, compared to other central locations, does not necessarily intrinsically increase rental rates, whereas the decor and amenities combined with location do. If you decide to purchase in this district and intend to reap rental rewards, our advice would be to NOT skimp on luxuriousness so that your property can attract only the highest of clientele and command the highest of rates.
The second most expensive district also continues to be the 7th (Eiffel Tower) at 8,660€/m2, but shows tremendous growth with 12.4%. While the 7th can be a bit dull in some p
arts for the average tourist, there
is nothing more desirable than a view of the Eiffel Tower and the market street rue Cler will easily draw rental clientele. This is Paris’ most elegant district and with the right property, a purchase here can be virtually risk free.

paris property price chart
The 4th district followed suit, comprised of the lower part of Le Marais and the Ile Saint-Louis with an average of 8,371€/m2, but showed only light growth just under the average with 8.2%. Could it be simply topping out a bit? One thing is clear — averages vary greatly around the district depending on specific location. We have seen properties on Ile Saint-Louis sell for as much as 20,000€/m2.
The 5th district was the second highest appreciating area of the city, but remains expensive at 8,291€/m2. Areas around the Latin Quarter and near Notre Dame have high rental potential. You’ll find some properties here as old as 16th and 17th-century with lots of charm.
For residential purposes, the most ideal districts are those that show the most appreciation at the lowest per square meter prices. Have a look at the 10th, 16th and 19th. The 10th (Canal Saint-Martin) continues to show above average growth while prices remain low at 5,479€/m2. The “Bobos” are still moving in (contraction of “bourgeois-bohème”), ‘gentrifying’ and ‘hipifying’ it! In the 16th, where apartments are large and elegant (Trocadero), the price per square meter is a bargain for the top-of-the-charts growth its showing. Now, have a look at the 19th (Parc des Buttes Chaumont). This is the hottest spot in Paris to set up residence at a bargain price at only 4,884€/m2 coupled with extreme growth potential of 10.2%.
paris property price chart
For rental revenue potential, consider other districts that have above average appreciation and moderate prices where occupancy rates will be also be above average. The two districts that will fulfill the best return on rental investment are the 2nd (rue Montorgeuil) and the 3rd (Haut Marais). Both are reasonably priced (6,755€/m2 and 7,147€/m2 respectively). Both show above average growth (9.0% and 9.1% respectively). To reduce your risk, purchases on both of these districts will make ideal rentals with growth potential in terms of occupancy, rates and appreciation.

Arrondissement % Growth Price/m2
16th +12.7% (7350€/m2)
5th +12.5% (8291€/m2)
7th +12.4% (8660€/m2)
19th +10.2% (4884€/m2)
8th +9.6% (7791€/m2)
1st +9.3% (7630€/m2)
3rd +9.1% (7147€/m2)
2th +9.0% (6755€/m2)
10th +8.9% (5479€/m2)
17th +8.6% (5942€/m2)
4th +8.2% (8371€/m2)
11th +8.2% (5788€/m2)
13th +7.9% (5952€/m2)

Moneycorp Market Commentary
From Moneycorp Currency Specialists

Further $AUD
ins as the Pound Weakens

After regaining some of its losses in November, the downward trend of the Pound against the Australian Dollar of the past few months continued as it slipped by almost 10 cents throughout December, finishing the year at around the 2.25 levels.
Weaker data from the UK and continued nervousness from the credit crunch prompted the Bank of England to cut their rates to 5.5%, with increasing speculation that there could be further cuts in the early part of 2008. The housing market fell for the second month in a row and, with mortgage approvals also dropping, Sterling lost ground on all the major currencies hitting an all time low against the Euro.
In Australia the RBA, as expected, kept their rates at a lofty 6.75% and many analysts are predicting that inflationary pressures and a tight labor market will most probably force rates even higher throughout the course of the year. Gold prices are also at an all time high, and with the US Dollar still weak, Australia remains an attractive investment for those with renewed risk appetite…

The France ShowFirst France Show Gets Off to a Storming Start

The London rain didn’t stop thousands of visitors flocking to the opening day of the three day France Show 2008 at Olympia on Friday.
Built around the themes of food and wine, travel, property and language, The France Show 2008 is the largest celebration of France and French living to be held in the UK and hopes to entertain over 35,000 visitors from across the UK.
The Show was opened in spectacular fashion when a VIP Breakfast hosted by show organizers Archant Life was invaded by a troupe of Can Can dancers who took the stage for an action-packed five minute stint.
This was followed by introductions by guest speakers from ABTOF, SeaFrance and Maison de la France with celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli finishing off proceedings with a speech in his native tongue.
Novelli has been promoted as the face of the 2008 Show and indeed will be hosting a number of the live cookery demonstrations on offer to visitors each day.
The France Show 2008While cookery, food and wine are high on the menu, with wine and champagne tasting in abundance, the Show also plays host to the UK’s largest exhibition of French property, with many thousands of properties for sale on display from all the leading agents from both sides of the Channel. Seminars on travel, language, property and wine tasting add education to the whole experience.
“This has been an exceptional start to the France Show 2008,” commented Archant Life France MD Miller Hogg. “Hopefully people will continue to come in droves throughout the weekend for a great day out whether they are a true francophile, French property hunter or someone who simply likes the idea of finding out more about this stunning country and its colorful culture.”
Chateau AnsouisPierre Cardin will Not be Lord of Le Château d’Ansouis!
One of the most beautiful châteaux of Provence in one of the most beautiful villages…
The saga of the Château d’Ansouis continued when it went up on auction this past January 17th. (See https://adrianleeds.com/frenchproperty/insider to refresh your memory!)
It’s a story of a family’s dispute and one of France’s most illustrious citizens.
The youngest child of the family, Géraud de Sabran, also mayor of Ansouis, said, “I find it lamentable that my sister wanted to sell the castle even though she had the means of keeping it. My two brothers also wanted to preserve this residence in which we always lived. I hope at least that it will remain open to the public. What Pierre Cardin and his foundation wanted to do with it did not help to obtain the castle.”
Pierre Cardin made the highest bid on the first sale on October 29, 2007, but he won’t be “lord of the manor” thanks to a misunderstanding by his Notaire, Maître Jean-Pimor. The candle was extinct before he could outbid the winner, a Provençal physician. Set at a starting price of 5,170,000€, it was sold at 5,6000,000€
Pierre Cardin remarked, “What occurred is a total injustice. I do not understand. For me, this purchase was made. I had a budget quite higher than the last offer. It was for me to say stop to my lawyer if I wanted to stop the sale and I did not do that.”

Chateau Ansouis
Elzéar de Sabran Pontevès, the son of the mayor of Ansouis, and the lawyer of the family M. Arnaud Claret

Was the Notaire simply disabled or was there a real disagreement? “My client thinks that it was a plot, but it was not that at all. I am really sorry for this misunderstanding, and I will try to do something, but I can say nothing for the moment.
The result is that Pierre Cardin missed the opportunity to be owner of the castle. Ansouis will have to accept the presence of two new residents — a couple, currently living in Aix-en-Provence, who for the time being wishes to stay anonymous, but wants to be reassuring all the same: “We will not close the castle to visits, however, we are in love with the old stones and the castle will be our principal residence.” For Elzéar, the son of Géraud de Sabran Pontevès, it is a relief and finally a good result. “My aunt the duchess will not have 10 million euros to her disposal. My only concern today is that of the intentions of the purchaser, that the castle will remain open to the public.”
CharenteFrench Property Hotspot: Charente
From http://www.homesworldwide.co.uk
New Ryanair route paves the way for property boom in Charente region.
French property experts VEF UK offered clients a top tip for investments this year: look to Charente.
The company said on its website: “buyers looking for a solid French property investment this year would do well to consider the Charente. The news of Ryanair’s confirmed new route from Stansted to Angoulême-Cognac airport from April has confirmed what many experts in the French property market have been predicting; that the Charente could well become an investment hotspot for 2008.”
Visitor numbers in the area this year are predicted to swell by over 20,000 in light of its improved accessibility, and it is believed that the stunning countryside, friendly locals, traditional light stone properties and beautiful lakes and rivers will be a strong draw for many to stay.
The new route, coupled with improvements in the TGV network meaning that Angoulême is only five and a half hours by train from London, making the Charente more accessible than ever.
VEF UK estimates that property prices in the area are 15% cheaper than the national average, with a good supply of characterful stone properties still within reach for most buyers. The agents noted that the interest shown from the UK and Ireland that has been steadily growing over the past few years is set to intensify in 2008.
So, if you’re interested in buying in the Charente, the early part of the year offers a great chance of snapping up a bargain before the airport opens in April and the market gets going as it always does after Easter.

The “Fractional Ownership” Solution Update
By Adrian Leeds

Fractional ownership is a hybrid of direct ownership and time sharing, combining the best elements of both. The primary differences are that while timeshares involve many thousands of 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 and for which there are very few, if any, resort amenities which must be managed and maintained (and paid for!). For Paris Home Shares, the city of Paris is it’s own resort!
See the Paris Home Shares Fractional Ownership Offerings:
The months currently available for 2008 are July, August and November.

Those who have purchased shares in Le Jardin Saint-Paul on Rue Ferdinand Duval, 4th Arrondissement, Le Marais, will be happy to know the renovation is complete! As a final touch, the granite counters were installed last weekend.
