Paris overtakes London as investment hotspot

Paris has overtaken London as Europe's biggest real estate investment market, according to new figures released by property adviser CBRE.

There was 7.9 billion of investment in the French capital in the second half of 2011, up from the EUR 3.6 billion recorded in the first half of the year.

The research has been backed up by recent findings from Sotheby's International Realty who have noted that 2011 saw a 34% increase in sales of Parisian property compared with 2010.

“Throughout history, real estate has been a safe haven and many foreign customers, who come to invest, see Paris is a safe bet,” comments the company's Paulo Fernandes.
