14/7/2012 - Home Loans ... still down!
Mortgage rates are not rising again as we thought, but are actually falling. Boursorama Banque even offers a rate of 3.46% over 14 years, without administration fees and without compensation in the event of early repayment!

According to the Banque de France, in May 2012 there were only 6.2 billion real estate loans granted in France. It is half less than in May 2011. A small ray of hope, however: it seems that the figures for June are better. With real estate prices still very high and historically low rates, it appears that the French cannot embark on a real estate purchase. It is especially young households with average incomes who cannot find real estate corresponding to their budget. Find out more:
