France Home Finance History

France Home Finance was founded in 2004 by a team of British, American and French bankers with the mission to provide the best independent French mortgage service to the world.

Since then, and based on the requests of our clients to become a one stop service for their financial and real estate needs in France, we have expanded to include insurance, currency savings, Paris property search and tax optimisation for French residents via investment in "assurance vie" and "plan d'epargne de retraite populaire."

In years of experience working with thousands of clients, we have learned that while the French language barrier can pose a challenge to some of our international clients (both resident and non resident) in obtaining French real estate, mortgages and insurance, the most difficult hurdles come from cultural barriers and differences in processes.

We make it our business to understand what you expect the process to be to apply for any of our products and then clearly explain in advance how it will differ in France to ensure a hassle free process for you.

We have also learned that relationships are as important in France as numbers. So we invest time to maintain close ties with our French partners and work hard to negotiate exclusive offers and develop new products tailored to the needs of our clients.

After all these years, we remain convinced that France is the ideal place to purchase property. France is unrivalled in it's stunning landscapes and coastlines, solid infrastructure, and steady tourism. The transparent and well regulated legal system ensure that property investors are protected. And the cafes, markets, wine and cuisine remind us why living is an art.

We understand why you are investing in French property and we agree with you!
