Moving to France .Expatriating and living in France

 

 

Europe is one of the continents that hosts the largest cities, culturally speaking, most beautiful and unique in the world. Only the Italian Peninsula, is the cradle of 75% of the world's artistic heritage. among the various most popular destinations to spend a holiday, or even to relocate, we can not forget France. Nice, Paris, Marseille, Côte d'Azur ... you're spoilt for choice! France is a unique nation and able to make anyone find their own size. Have you ever thought about moving to this wonderful land? We do! And for this reason, today, we have created a mini guide made to measure for our most loyal customers.

Buying a property in France will be the key to your success! How to do it in the best possible way ? You'll find out soon, right here, on Realigro! So, if you are ready, we can start!

                      

Let's start with the basics, with information about the documentation needed to access France. As a member of the European Union, the legislation provides only and exclusively for an identity document, if you come from a state belonging to the community. Otherwise, a passport will be required.

The official language is of course French, but if you are not particularly good at speaking it, a basic knowledge of English will suffice.

After having given a general picture of the administrative bureaucratic situation, let us begin to find out what the cost of living in France is. To do so, we have decided to insert a small list with the main goods and services typical and of first necessity, with the relative prices. Let us remember that the national currency is the Euro.

Meal, Cheap Restaurant 13,00 €          

Meal for 2 People, Medium Restaurant, Three Servings 50,00 €           

Menu from McDonalds (or equivalent menu) 8,00 € 

National beer (0,5L on tap) 6,00 € 

Import Beer (0.33L bottle) 4.50 € 

Milk (normal), (1L) 0,96 € 

Fresh white bread loaf (500g) 1,29 € 

Rice (white), (1kg) 1,61 € 

Eggs (normal) (12) 2,65 €

Local cheese (1kg) 14,94 €          

Chicken breast (boned, skinned), (1kg) 10,51 €

One way ticket (local means of transport) 1,60 € 

Monthly subscription (full price) 51,30 €

Basic (Electricity, Heating, Air conditioning, Water, Garbage) for an apartment of 85m2 143,06 €         

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for: how much does it cost to buy a property in France? According to a national average price, in order to sign a contract of sale, you start from € 6,473.66 in large cities and from € 3,983.53 (per square meter) in neighboring cities. For the rent instead, the prices are around 500 € per month.

What can I say, we hope that our mini guide has been useful and that you no longer have any doubt about how to move in this magnificent country. Have a good trip!
