3 things you need to know about buying property in France

The financing conditions for a second home or rental property are not the same as those for a main residence, particularly with regard to the amount of equity required.

Value of the property

As with any purchase in Switzerland, we carry out a valuation of the property to confirm its value. This step is compulsory and ensures that you buy at the right price.


You must set aside at least one third of the appraised value of the property as equity. Please note: you cannot use your 2nd or 3rd pillar savings as equity.

Additional costs

Various costs - which vary and are not included in the financing calculation - are added to the purchase price of the property, including: 

  • guarantees and notary fees at the time of purchase
  • local taxes
  • property wealth tax (impôt sur la fortune immobilière, IFI)
  • capital gains tax when the property is transferred.

It is important to take these into account and to set aside extra funds to cover them.
