Flat in Paris

I was messing around on the internet when I found this article describing how a woman here in San Francisco bought this apartment in Paris for 130k in Montmare {you know, the same neighborhood Amelie lived.}. This was a few years ago before the Euro got strong. They used a rental agency and rent out the apartment most of the year which is a very good investment. Plus they own a place in Paris! Extended stays in Europe sounds really appealing to me. Immo Realty helps Americans buy apartments in Paris. I’ve almost got Paul convinced.

    I love this idea!

    Living in Phoenix I see all the “snowbirds” flock here for the great weather, it would be so fun follow suit and leave the heat behind and spend a summer in Paris…Also reminds me of the movie “Sabrina”

    I enjoy your posts…reading and viewing your pics makes me miss Cali. I lived in Long Beach for 4 yrs. Yet to experience N. Cali. but it sounds fabulous!

    I like messing around on the Internet, too. And also messing around in Paris. You should get a flat, and then we (yes, you and me) can parade around Montmarte together. Deal?

    that looks lovely!

    I wish my husband had bought a place when he lived there, we have some friends who purchased a small apartment about 5 or 6 years ago in the city which has gone up in value (just the Euro value, not account for the exchange) by a factor of 5 (!!!) in just that short amount of time!

    Dublin is too pricey for us now too, so we’ve been looking in Paris as well with the exact same idea. Great minds think alike!

    Last month; I was looking to buy a Paris Apartment. But I was not sure about the things I should look for before making the final decision. Then I came to know about “Paris Travel Guide”. It helped me to buy the Paris Apartments online. I thought it might be helpful for you therefore wanted to share the information at

    May be it will help your time to make final decision on Paris apartments at

    Montmatre is not the nicest or safest place to be in at night. But wow that was a steal for the price!
