Choosing to buy a property in the Pays de Gex is an obvious solution given the high rental prices around Lake Geneva where a housing shortage is happening for decades. In the current environment, a Real Estate investment is a safe haven that continues to grow since the past fifteen years (+ 157% according to the index Notaires - INSEE).
It is for this reason that many expats choose to live in communes as Divonne-les-Bains, Prevessin, Ferney-Voltaire, Ornex, Thoiry, Gex, St Genis-Pouilly or even Cessy. Indeed, they are dynamic and constantly developing.
Schools, public transportation, shops and many other amenities are set to meet and exceed all newcomer’s expectations.
Buy in France is to enjoy an exceptional quality of life and, most importantly, to own a property whose value is safe.
