We are working with a long time (French) colleague who has identified a niche – well-priced Paris property being advertised outside the Estate agency circuit. This sector represents an astonishing 55% of the entire Paris market and the aim is to show the best properties available among the 4,200 private real estate offerings coming onto the market every year.
Here is a sampling of what he is finding, and for anyone in the know, the prices are definitely very interesting… (please contact us for more information)

Haussmann’s renovation of Paris, or the Haussmann Plan, was a mordernisation program of Paris commissioned by Napoleon III and directed by the Seine Prefect, Baron Georges -Eugene Haussmann, between 1853 and 1870, though work continued until the end of the 19th century.
His restructuring of Paris gave the city its’ present form; its’ long, straight, wide boulevards with their cafes and shops determined a new type of urban scenario and have had a profound influence on the everyday lives of Parisians.
Haussmann’s boulevards established the foundation of what is today the popular representation of the French capital around the world, cutting through the old Paris of dense and irregular medieval alleyways into a more rationally-designed city with wide avenues and open spaces which extended outwards fr beyond the old city limits (Wikipedia).
