About France Home Finance
France Home Finance is the leading French based independent mortgage broker for non-residents and expatriates. They specialize in securing the best possible terms and conditions on classic mortgages, re-mortgages, leasebacks, and equity release mortgages. France Home Finance has close relationships with twenty top lenders in France and in the past year, was able to secure over 40 million euros in loans for their clients. The team at France Home Finance understands that buying a property overseas can often seem daunting and they are fully dedicated to the highest level of customer service. France Home Finance acts as a “general contractor” – co-coordinating and managing all the involved parties: from the real estate agent, to the mortgage bank, insurance agent, and even the architect! Bi-lingual advisors walk clients through every step of the process from opening a bank account in France to obtaining the mandatory life insurance for the mortgage. Unlike other brokers, France Home Finance offers this full service for the life of the mortgage – so a France Home Finance team member is always on hand to help out. Founded in 2004 by a team of British, American and French bankers, the France Home Finance team has since grown to include finance specialists and property experts.
