and German : “We are dealing with a niche market : 2nd homes are a luxury, it is all about emotion and feelings. It is also essentially a slow market, creating strong ties that last a long time. Our portfolio mostly proposes rural or village houses, luxury properties such as old buildings of real charm,

ranging from 300,000 € to over 5 M €. Real luxury has nothing to do with price, a chalet nestling in the midst of a lavender field can be a dream come true ! In our agency, we talk about beauty, quality and charm, we tell tales of the past”. Iconic sales handled by Janssens Immobilier include the house of David Beckham in Le Var and that of the designer of Tiffany’s in Provence. On the subject of the market, Rudi Janssens explains : “Over the past year, it has picked up a great deal of speed, completion dates have shrunk from 12 to 3 or 6 months maximum. The number of monthly

enquiries has doubled since May 2020, and we have

completed almost 40 % more sales in 2021 versus 2020. We are seeing real frenzy. Today’s market is clearly a sellers’ market, with rising prices, of over 10 to 15 % depending on the area, and also a market borne along 75 % by a French clientele. Real estate is seen as an ultra-safe haven. Before, people dreamed of a house in Provence, today they buy a home in Provence ! The pandemic has overthrown all the rules, quality living conditions have become a priority. 9 out of 10 sales do not in fact need a mortgage, buyers place their savings in bricks and mortar. Provence is much more than a destination, it is a brand, and our affiliation to Knight Frank demonstrates the fact each day : foreign clients are in love with the South of France, just like us !”
