Five compelling reasons why a French mortgage could be right for you :

      1) Save money on currency exchange if you are not earning in euros
      By taking a mortgage in euros, you postpone the need to move the full price of your purchase into euros. Then when the exchange rate improves, you can pay off your mortgage early if you choose.
      2) Save money by reducing your taxable rental income
      Rental income earned from your French property will have to be declared annually to the French tax authorities. You can reduce the amount of taxable rental revenue by the interest paid on your French mortgage. This does not apply to mortgages taken in your home country for your French property.
      3) Save money with the low French interest rates and keep your home country equity available
      If you’re considering a loan secured on your property in your home country, keep in mind that French interest rates are often lower. Your return on investment could be higher by opting for a French mortgage and keeping your capital in local investments. Further, you leave your home country property open to borrow against in the future.
      4) Increase your budget to buy with a French mortgage
      If you plan to buy in cash but are not happy with the property to which your budget corresponds, don't make a compromise that you might regret. A French mortgage will help you increase your purchasing power to make an offer on the property that’s right for you.
      5) Reduce or eliminate your French “wealth tax” burden
      Resident or not, you are legally obliged to declare the market value of your French assets to the government each year if you have assets net of debt worth over 1.3 million euros and then you must pay the applicable “wealth tax”. You can reduce the market value of any property you own by the capital outstanding on your French mortgage.
