New Year, New You, New Toi, New Toit?We hope you’ve enjoyed a relaxing holiday, it all seems to be so far away already, and hopefully your plans for the new decade are starting to take shape.
I’m sure most of you got the headline about this post; ‘new toit’ meaning ‘new roof’ and is a double ‘entendre’ with ‘new you’ in french, when people take their resolutions for the new year, and for some of you a french house?
Are you looking for an early spring? And an unforgettable summer with family and guests under your new french ‘toit’ for your very own house warming party 'cremaillere' style al fresco or by the fireplace?
Get in touch and tell us about your plans, there’s plenty of time to find and secure the perfect summer as the purchase process takes approx 3 months, you will need to factor-in an extra 6 weeks if you need a french mortgage.
Maybe you’ve been putting off your search awaiting for clarity on brexit while looking online for the elusive ‘perfect property’. The real question is, does it exists or is possible to find?
Or perhaps you have recently started looking but need to sell a business, waiting retirement age or for kids to graduate? No problem, simply register your preferences and criteria with us so we can keep an eye out for you, while you keep an eye on the market and trends.
We have many character homes, farm properties, gites and french chateaux for sale in the most popular areas of France. And with spring fast approaching and a buoyant real estate market, we very much look forward to sharing our latest gems and beauties with you over the next few weeks and months.
And take a look at my property of the month, a former wine growing property with lots of potential in the Aude in south west France. And finally, read our take on brexit post elections and what this means for the sterling/euro rate going forward.
