So much choice, so many decisions

Once you start looking at the thousands of properties for sale in France you may begin to realise how difficult it can be to find the one that is right for you. It’s an expensive and time consuming task to keep visiting France to view areas and properties and it is important to be focussed on where and what you are looking for to save time and money, let alone frustration! At Healey Fox we have an in-depth knowledge of most regions of France, knowing most of the towns and many of the villages in the areas in which we work. Should the U.K. team be unable to answer a specific question about an area or property we can always get help from our partner agencies who know the area intimately and each house in detail. Having assisted so many people over the years to buy the right property in a location that has also proved right for them, we know that our help can be invaluable for anyone who is searching for a French property.

Don’t get tempted

It is easy to make a mistake when buying a property in France. Because of low property prices it can be tempting to buy a house that is too big or has too much land. Looking at possible locations for a French house from your home in the U.K. can be a time consuming task and may result in planning to view houses that are not well situated for your immediate and future needs. The dream of a detached, rural idyllic cottage can sway one’s judgement about the kind of property which will really work for you, not only immediately but also into the future. Healey Fox will keep you focussed throughout your search so that you don’t buy something that could prove to be a mistake. We are not here to rush you into buying a French property. We are here to try to make sure that you buy what is right for you and that the buying process proceeds safely and efficiently. Once you have chosen the area and some houses you would like to view we will make appointments for you with our English speaking French Estate Agents. They will show you your chosen properties and maybe others which you may decide would be worth viewing.

Search French Property Bargains

As soon as anyone starts to search for French property it is hard not to be amazed by the value for money French houses offer compared to those in the U.K. Low prices and the huge range of styles and locations can be tempting and confusing. If you are new to the search for French property you will probably quickly begin to notice that different regions have different priced property. Generally the more rural an area the cheaper the prices will be. For anyone looking for a real French bargain house then most of the central France regions (Limousin, Aquitaine and Poitou-Charente) now known as Nouvelle-Aquitaine offer the best value for money. Not only are houses in most of this region cheaper than elsewhere in France but because it has not been so popular with local house buyers, there are still many properties which offer even larger bargains as they are still awaiting some renovation and refurbishment work. For anyone looking for a bargain property in France who has not yet chosen the area they want to look in, it is well worth looking at Deux Sevres, Haute Vienne and Charente. However, if you are searching for bargain properties in other parts of France we are always happy to point you in the direction of the parts of any region which offer the best value houses.

Grab yourself a special bargain

Looking at the low price of houses for sale in France you may be surprised to know that from time to time you could grab even more of a bargain. Healey Fox offer a special selection of bargain properties. These properties are offered at below the market price for various reasons. Sometimes an owner needs to sell quickly to move to a different part of France for work and in France you cannot even begin the process of buying another property until you have a confirmed buyer for your current home. On other occasions ill health or bereavement cause an owner to sell quickly and sometimes if a property has not sold in the first few months the owner will make a sizeable reduction to get a quick sale. To be able to profit from such a bargain French property you will need to have your finances in place before you make an offer to buy. Owners who considerably reduce the price of their property only do so to find a buyer who can complete the first contract to buy immediately. To sign this document you need to be certain that you have the finances to complete the purchase otherwise you are at risk of losing the 10% deposit that you will need to pay when signing the first contract.
