Mortgage Broker And Currency Exchange Service

If you need a mortgage, apply in advance before starting your search.  This is important for two reasons:

  1. It’s not easy for a foreigner to obtain a mortgage in France, so you want to know in advance.

    Recommendation: Many of our buyers have obtained mortgages at favorable rates from an agent we know and trust, Martin Heathcote of France Home Finance. Contact him at: [email protected]. Tell him we’ve sent you and he always gives our referrals the best service.

    Why: If you find a fantastic apartment but must insert a special condition in your offer that you can only complete your purchase if you obtain a mortgage: the seller will refuse your offer and accept a non-conditional offer ahead of yours, even at a slightly lower price.
  2. Open an account with a foreign exchange firm.  You will save thousands in wire fees plus obtain the best exchanges rates by using a registered currency exchange firm. We recommend Shaun Dash at Newbridge FX. Exchange rates are as close to the large major exchanges as you can get and the wire fees are low. Contact him at: [email protected]
