"The US real estate market has been in the doldrums since the late 1990's and we believe that now is the right time to open Leggett USA".

(PRWEB) January 31, 2013

Leggett Immobillier, one of the foremost estate agencies in France, announced today that they will be marketing properties & new developments in the USA.

They are starting in Florida and Michigan but have plans to also list properties in New York, California and other key states - they have a dedicated website http://www.leggett-usa.com with new properties being added every day.

Chief Executive, Trevor Leggett, comments:

"Our business in France has grown enormously over the last few years and we thought that the timing was right to tackle the US market. American real estate has been in the doldrums since the late 1990's but international demand and low stock levels have meant that both prices and transaction levels are beginning to rise.

Florida in particular is an investment hub for Latin American investors and I saw first hand on a recent trip to China that Asian investors also see prime property in the USA as a secure home in a transparent market that is easily available to them.

We have particularly close links with buyers from the UK & France and we look forward to helping them come to the table. Standard & Poors, JP Morgan and Barclays Capital are just three of the big names that have forecast a significant upturn in prices of US real estate over the coming years.

Whether you are looking for a small apartment close to Disneyland or a sumptuous villa overlooking the Gulf of Mexico we will be able to help you. In addition we have access to some of the most exciting new developments for investors & owner occupiers alike.

We have spent considerable time sourcing the best agents and developers to work with and we are confident that our clients will have access to some of the finest properties available. Leggetts take great pride in our customer service and family values and we believe that this is the ideal time to extend these into other markets".

As well as a range of individual houses & apartments Leggett USA will be marketing new developments and even individual building plots. As an example, in Ocala, Florida they are marketing a range of freehold building plots from around $40,000. The site is in the heart of Ocala (the horse capital of the USA) and all the infrastructure is already in place, with some investors already having built their homes. An interest free payment plan is being offered by the developers who will also design & build your property if required.

At the other end of the price spectrum they are also marketing some of the finest new developments in Southern Florida including property within the exclusive resorts of Coconut Grove, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Bal Harbour.

If you are a developer or realtor within the US market and would like to offer your properties to Leggett clients in the UK & continental Europe then please contact the Leggett USA team at usa@leggett.fr
