Interested in Buying a Property in France?

Property in France

Now, isn’t that a lovely Chateau? (It is for Sale)

If you have been thinking of buying a property here in France I might just be able to help you to make the right choice.

It’s lovely to think of your dream house here in France and imagining yourself living the french life and enjoying lovely long summer evenings with your favourite drink maybe even by your own pool.

I would not like to stop you buying your dream house here in the South-West-France or indeed anywhere in France, but I would ask you to really think about it and put a lot of research in to it.

As I have now been living here for over 9 years I would just like to share some of the knowledge I have.

I would just like to point out that all this is based on my own experiences and what I have heard from friends.

Before you settle on any of the lovely available houses here, sit down and make a list of what you would like your property to be.

Are you after a house in the country side or a house close to a village and neighbours or maybe you want to go really rural.

Also, you should consider if you want to do any building work or if the property should be all done and all you have to do is put your furniture in.

Would you like land or maybe just a garden. How about a pool?

See, already there are many questions you should clear up in your mind before you start looking at any property.

The reason I am listing all this is, because when we searched for our dream house we had certain criterias.

But I have to admit that after I searched on the internet for property and found some really nice ones all the criteria went out of the window as I was seduced by some of the georgeous houses I saw.

After I dreamed for a while, thank god, reality kicked back in again and I got back on the right track.

For me it was really important to find a property that was either close to an Airport or close to a TGV station as I was working out of Paris at that time.

It took some time to convince my husband that we do not need a property with 50 hectares of land and I think he is very happy that he gave in to me at the time as he can just about manage 3 acres.......

Another criteria for me was that my house would need no structural work but it was ready to move in.

I hope that I have given you something to think about now, but wait - I have not finished yet.

Once you make the decision to move here what will you do for a living????

Unless you are very rich you will have to work to afford your lovely lifestyle and pay for your dream house.

Out of experience I know that it is extremely hard to find work here, but maybe you are in a position to take your job with you.

So, another thing to consider.........

I do hope I have not put you off from buying a house over here, but instead just made you realise you need to do a lot of research.

If you are interested in finding out anything else about moving to France you can always contact me and I will try and help. It is not always easy to find the right property if you maybe don’t have much time to come over here and look at lots of houses.

I might be able to help you with your search. Should you have anything in mind why not let me know and for a fee I would do all the leg work for you and present you with maybe 5 to 6 properties for you to look at.

Should you prefer to do all the work yourself and you are looking for some accommodation while you are here, why not have a look at ‘La Petite Maison'.

I have worked on a little House Hunting Package and here is what I have come up with.
