Live on a golf course

Starting bet:

Risk profile:

Reside on the very chic golf course of Saint-Nom-la-Bretêche (78) to swing at leisure and enjoy this ocean of greenery. Here is the setting in which nestles this villa which belonged to Daniel Féau, founder of the high-end real estate agencies of the same name and later to Daniel Filipacchi, media man. Creator and promoter of the Saint-Nom-la-Bretêche golf course in 1959, Daniel Féau decided in 1970 to build his house in this residential town located 25 kilometers west of Paris. The plans are designed by the architect Jacques Regnault. This man of the art designed the adjoining golf course and supervised the construction of the surrounding houses. Built on three levels, this 860 m2 house has twenty rooms, five of which are dedicated to reception over more than 200 m2, five bedrooms, all equipped with bathroom and dressing rooms. This luxury accommodation offers in different places unobstructed views over the wooded park of more than one hectare and on the fairway which adjoins the property. The interior decoration gives pride of place to marble, woodwork and contemporary English parquet floors. There is a 60 m2 sports hall, a 40 m2 projection room, two panoramic terraces on one level and independent service accommodation. Among the equipment: surveillance cameras, an electric gate and armored burglar-proof windows, a five-seater garage and four cellars. The current owner has an accepted project for the construction of a “wellness pavilion” with a swimming pool. The property tax amounts to 9,711 euros. This house is marketed for 3.5 million euros by Daniel Féau Immobilier.

Gold still so shiny?

Starting bet:

Risk profile:

What if in 2021, gold was not going to lose its luster? This is the opinion of some specialists in the sector (UBS, CPR AM). In power in a few days, US President Joe Biden should activate a stimulus plan which could generate a resumption of inflation. This scenario would have the effect of lowering real rates, a factor supporting the price of gold. Other positive elements: firmer demand for the yellow metal in Asia, where the economic recovery is taking shape, and a further decline in the dollar. This context should therefore benefit basic resources, in particular gold, but also all precious and / or industrial metals (silver, platinum, palladium). As a reminder, the health and economic uncertainties triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic boosted, in mid 2020, the price of the yellow metal which reached its highest level of the year last August, at 2,063 dollars an ounce, before to lose its luster with a second half of the year in subdued, which put an ounce to 1,892 dollars. Still up 24.5% over one year!

2021: tax news

Starting bet:

Risk profile:

Good news for the top 20% of households! It is this year that the gradual abolition of the housing tax begins. In 2021, the reduction will be 30%, then 65% in 2022 to disappear in 2023. The abolition of this tax only concerns the main residence. It therefore remains in force for second homes. Also note: since January 1, the Pinel device is no longer eligible for new single-family homes for rent. However, it continues to apply to apartments located in new buildings. This law remains as it is until 2023 but, from 2024, the tax advantage should be planed.

Furnished rental: also new

Starting bet:

Risk profile:

We don’t think much about it, but furnished rentals are not only reserved for old properties. Thus, the promotion group Altarea has just launched the “Furnished solution” offer intended for investors who have had their fill of tax loopholes. By purchasing new accommodation intended for furnished rentals, the saver can take advantage of the so-called Non-Professional Furnished Rental (LMNP) tax. Offered in all Cogedim programs and soon in the operations of the group’s subsidiaries (Pitch Promotion, Woodeum), this service offers several à la carte services. This ranges from a varied choice of furniture (from 8,500 to 13,000 euros) to support for rental management (7.5% of rents collected), through the guarantee of unpaid rents (2.2% of rents) and , if necessary, is the advice of an expert on tax and accounting aspects (invoiced 300 euros per year). The search for tailor-made financing via a broker is also proposed. It should be remembered that since January 1, the publications of advertisements for tourist furnished rentals posted on the major specialized platforms (Airbnb, Abritel, Booking, etc.) must now specify the source of the offer, namely if it comes from u individual or professional. This precision is notable since the taxation differs.

Focus on bonds

Starting bet:

Risk profile:

In its publication devoted to ten investment themes for 2021 , the private bank BNP Paribas Wealth Management remains positive on bond investments and specifies that it is possible to “find opportunities for yield”. It is not a question of being interested in government bonds of developed countries, whose remunerations are low or even negative, but in the so-called “subordinated” securities issued by companies in the “Investment Grade” category. – say endowed with a solid credit rating and capable of generating 1.8%. If the choice is “Fallen Angels”, in other words bonds which switch from the “Investment Grade” category to “High Yield” (a little riskier), then the returns take color, with average levels of 2 , 7% in the euro zone and 4.6% in the United States. Emerging bonds (in hard or local currency) are also likely to have the wind in their sails because “the weakness of the dollar could redirect the financial flows of investors” towards these geographic areas. This favorable positioning of private banking on a targeted part of the bond universe is based on two basic assumptions: a vaccination campaign which will continue to gain momentum and budgetary policies which should remain accommodative.
