Credit confirms its status as locomotive to the housing market : according to figures released Thursday by the Bank of France , the total outstanding housing loans grew at the end of November by 3.1% year on year, to 811 billion euros. The figures next month - total 12 months of 2013 - should not say anything different. This performance is surprising in a sluggish economy, as evidenced by the stagnation of business credit.

In reality, while for businesses, it is the activity which controls the search for funding, in the case of property:, it is currently just the opposite: credit is the engine for the housing market, because it is currently given to particularly low levels, providing buyers with attractive conditions : Always according to the latest figures from the Bank of France, the rate of housing loans declined continuously between January and October, from 3 6 % (excluding insurance) to 3.1%. In November, the rate rose slightly to 3.19 %, which is still a historically low level .
