Paris Residence Club Helps Americans Who Love Paris Live 'La Belle Vie' With Low-Risk Investment and No French Red Tape.

The Time Is Right to Consider Purchasing a Second Home in Europe

NEW YORK, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart investors know that the time is right to look across the pond to buy real estate. But why buy a whole estate when you can only use it a few weeks out of the year? Americans who are chained to their desks and strained by a faltering economy don't need to look far, or invest much, to have a second home in Europe for their private use at least 4 weeks out of the year. Paris Residence Club, a Paris-based shared ownership real estate firm, has created a package that is custom-tailored to Americans who dream of living in Paris like a Parisian. PRC is a lifestyle destination club that allows like-minded owners to invest in a secure and potentially profitable shared interest of their very own, Parisian Pied-a-Terre, and to use it, hassle-free, as a base to access any of the 16 beautiful European Club destinations, such as Provence, Tuscany, and Morocco, or to cruise the Mediterranean with the Club yacht. All at a fraction of the cost it would be to purchase the whole thing.

The best benefit of all is that, for buyers who sign contracts between now and January 31, 2010, PRC will buy back the share in 5 years if the owner is not completely satisfied with their experience.

PRC's Founder and CEO Walid Halabi explains, "For most people, a home in the center of Europe is simply a fantasy, especially in today's uncertain economic times," said Mr. Halabi. "We are helping people to discover the many advantages of fractional ownership and the fact that, for little investment, they really can 'own a piece of Paris' and 'live like a Parisian.' There is less hassle than going through the French realty system when a potential buyer works with us, and we have made it very easy for Americans to purchase abroad. All the contracts are according to U.S. law which makes the process very seamless to navigate for a first-time European home-buyer."

The one-, two- and three-bedroom residence apartments available for shared ownership within Paris Residence Club come fully furnished and adorned with elegant interior designs and modern amenities, offering owners not only a legitimate real estate acquisition (note: the main difference between fractional ownership and timesharing is that the buyer actually owns the asset) but an ideal intimate setting for entertaining family and friends. Additionally, the apartments are conveniently located in the heart of Paris, within walking distance to metro stations, as well as popular Parisian neighborhoods and well-frequented destinations such as the Champs-Elysees or the Boulevard St-Germain; Notre Dame or the Eiffel Tower.

Paris Residence Club offers an unparalleled level of services to its owner-group, including 7-days-a-week English-speaking concierge, pre-arrival grocery shopping, fresh flowers at arrival, car service, daily English newspaper delivery, and many other comforts of home.

Paris Pied-a-Terre is a vacation rental property firm that is also managed by Mr. Halabi. PPaT is an ideal service for those who plan to visit Paris for an extended stay, but are not ready or able to invest in real estate there.

"The time and mood is right for Americans to start falling in love with France again," Halabi concluded. "And Paris real estate is only getting better and better, while other major markets have a long climb back up."
