In case you are wondering where France stands regarding the lock-down and real estate, here is a summary. All estate agencies have been ordered closed as of two weeks ago, and they will remain closed until the extended period ends whenever that is.
Notaires are allowed to work but many are operating on a skeleton crew to minimise social contact. Appointments are by rendez-vous. Contact via email as the secretary will not be working and nobody will be picking up messages. Similar with the banks and Syndics. Many are not taking appointments and are internet contact only.
If you have any questions, please post them below. ... See MoreSee Less
I hope you and your family stay safe and healthy Phillip!
Than you for the update. In the UK, only pharmacies, grocery shops, banks, post offices open. All our local estate agents are closed. Take care, keep safe
Thanks! Stay safe!

They've opened Cours Jacques Chirac, just behind the Cours Saleya, and it is very nice. Only the pub Van Diemens has a terrace out there so far, but as other bars and restaurants start to realise its potential it's going to become a cozy yet buzzing little street. A great addition to the Old Town of Nice. ... See MoreSee Less
How long does it take by the new tram from Place Garibaldi, next to the Port and Old Town, to the Alsace Lorraine tram stop on the far side of the Carré d'Or and Musicians Quarter?
One of my clients who bought an apartment right in the Square of Place Garibaldi wants a family member to buy "not too far away". I have a new property coming onto the market Monday on Boulevard Gambetta a short walk from the tram stop. It's a 2 bedroom apartment 74m² with 2 balconies, nice and quiet, plenty of French charm, and within his budget of "under €300,000".
From the moment I stepped onto the tram it took 4 minutes 40 seconds to step off the other end. So it really is five minutes away. I am interested in people's opinions. Would you buy a place twice the size with an extra bedroom 5 minutes by tram? Or a smaller one bedroom for the same price but a couple of minutes walk from the Square on foot?

Since the tram has made distance a non-issue, for me it’s what neighborhood do you want to be in when you leave your apartment. That was my #1 priority (as you well know). Thanks again!
It has really opened up the whole area. If we were going to buy again we would definitely widen our search as the team is so easy.
Personally I would buy the smaller apartment near the square.
I would go for the two bedroom for a 5 minute tram ride!
Interesting, comments seem to side more with the smaller but closer apartment.
Location,location,location is the most important for me. So it would have to be the smaller apartment.

The new flower market on the Cours Saleya is open to the public and it looks great.
I am not sure if there are more stalls, or spread out around the square it just looks that way, but it really is an impressive display.
The flower market used to occupy the first section of the Cours Saleya which then gave way to the fruit and vegetable market. With the flower market settled in its new home, this means phase one of the renovation of the Cours Saleya can now take place. Clever.
By the time they have finished that, the passage Jacques Chirac will be complete and the restaurants can move their terraces behind the Cours Saleya whilst phase two takes place. Again very well planned. With the underground tram being completed and all the bus lanes being converted into cycle lanes over the next few months, Nice is on track for an incredible 2020. ...

Looks great. Can't wait to see it in person in a couple of weeks
