Sellers who missed the opportunity to sell in the high season are now more willing to negotiate on their asking price

    ST. TROPEZ, FRANCE, February 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Luxury property expert William McIntosh of Carlton International has announced that owners of luxury properties have reduced their prices by up to 250,000EUR until mid April.

McIntosh explains that the price drops indicate a very normal trend in the market on the French Riviera where luxury properties tend to sell better when the sun shines. It's a fantastic time to buy property in some of the most exclusive postcodes in the South of France before the spring-summer rush when there is more competition and prices naturally rise.

Speaking of the trend McIntosh stated that "genuinely good deals do get snapped up and in the winter there are fewer competing buyers around to 'bid up' the price."

Because property sales are slower in the winter, the people involved in the transaction such as notaires, tax experts and lenders are far easier to reach and have more time available so real estate purchases go much more smoothly and quicker than in the summer months.

Following a drop in South of France real estate prices in 2013 some property owners found their luxury homes stayed on the market. Having missed the opportunity to sell in high season they are far more willing to negotiate on price.

McIntosh added that "prices are at, or very close to, the bottom, so the timing to buy now is perfect. I feel that prices will start increasing, or at the least level off, this summer. St. Tropez is a very small micro market so prices do not drop here as much as other areas on the Cote d'Azur."

William McIntosh, who has been selling luxury homes since 1982, has arranged special winter sale prices with a few select clients and offers two amazing properties with very large winter discounts.

For example, a gorgeous brand new contemporary style villa in St. Tropez with panoramic sea views, olive trees and even a small vineyard, is on sale. The asking price of 5,850,000 has dropped to 5,600,000 until April 15, a saving of 250,000 euros.

Another modern style villa for sale in in St. Tropez is available for 3,600,000 euros, 200,000 less than the usual asking price of 3,800,000 euros. The villa enjoys panoramic sea views and has been fully renovated.
