REVOR AND I WOULD LIKE TO WISH YOU AN EXTRA WARM WELCOME
to the latest issue of Leggett Magazine. For the moment, we are
publishing this issue in digital format only - it's not quite the same
as picking up a glossy magazine and putting it on your coff ee table,
but these are extraordinary times. We are a family fi rm, and our clients'
and friends' safety is uppermost in our minds. Printing 60,000 copies and
distributing them across France, the UK, and all corners of the world is a step
too far at the moment, but we hope that you will support us in our decision to,
temporarily, take the magazine online.
There is certainly plenty to enjoy in this issue. Award-winning journalist Liz
Rowlinson tells us why Occitanie has much to off er property buyers and helps
us explore the very best places in Paris. We also have articles on buying and
selling property, tips on property renovation, and our regional features where
you can browse through a small selection of the 14,000 properties we have
for sale across the country. To view our full portfolio of properties, please visit
our website www.leggettfrance.com.
Nobody knows how the French property market will perform over the coming
months, but there are two crucial considerations that we would like to
share. The fi rst is that, at the start of this year, we had record enquiry levels
and record sales - the market as a whole had seen 1.1m transactions in the
previous 12 months. The underlying demand for property was the strongest
The second is that our enquiry levels remain undiminished and requests for
"country" houses are soaring. It's clear that many people are now looking for a
property with outside space and, preferably, a defi ned area that they can use
to work from home.
Above all this, though, we hope that you are healthy, safe and that this
magazine provides an enjoyable diversion in these unpleasant times.
We hope you enjoy our latest issue !
