Alexander Kraft (Sotheby's International Realty France & Monaco) : Secondary residences, time for returning to favor?
After the health crisis, the link between buyers and secondary residences has changed. Before the Covid-19 epidemic, they didn’t really want to buy. Today, they are excited to buy again. They rediscover the advantages of having a secondary residence.
