The Crazy Way to Approach Buying a House in France

September 2, 2010 by admin  
Filed under Buying A House

Buying a house in France is a serious business for anyone. Whether you’re selling up lock, stock and barrel and emigrating to France permanently, or you’re lucky enough to be searching for a French holiday home, the expense is still substantial.

So why do we notice so many folks treat buying a house in France with so little thought? It’s not a pair of shoes – you can’t take it back if it doesn’t fit right!

Yet too often we hear the same horrors. Someone who has bought a French house without thinking and is now beginning to find problems. Who are these individuals? They must be doing very well to just travel France buying French property as the fancy takes them.

The mad thing is, nothing could be further from the truth. Often – in fact more often than not – these are couples putting their life savings, their whole future, into their French dream house.

And a alarming number of them haven’t got the first idea. They’ve done very little research, they don’t speak any French and they’ve sought no professional advice.

Then when things go pear-shaped they start moaning about the system, the language, the French, the agent… just about anything and everything is to blame but themselves. They treated buying a house in France like getting a lottery ticket and now they’re complaining because their one-in-a-million gamble didn’t pay off!

Now perhaps you think I’m being a bit extreme. I’m not. I know a family who you would think of as very sensible and cautious who signed an agreement to buy a French property while on vacation. They weren’t even looking for a house when they left England but they fell in love with the house.

What they were unaware of was that by the time they got back to the UK ten days later, getting out of the contract would cost them 12,000 Euros.

I can give you another example of a couple who bought a French property to live in part and turn the rest into gites. They wildly underestimated the renovation costs (because they didn’t ask) and now live in a place that needs a new roof. They can’t finish the work so they’ve only got small pensions to live off. The house is in a bad way so they can’t afford to sell and return to England either.

It’s all very concerning, really. I hear one of these stories about every other month and it’s such a pity. Now I’m not perfect, I’ve made plenty of mistakes myself living over here and renovating an old French property, but fortunately my misjudgements have been quite minor because I’ve invariably checked and double checked the costly things.

Which is, when you strip it all back to basics, all anyone needs to do.

The French property market offers a wealth of opportunities and buying a house in France is neither particularly hard nor particularly complicated. The trouble is that unless you’re French or you’ve owned French property before it IS new to you. There will be things you haven’t met before. There will be things that don’t go quite as expected.

The essential thing is to get a degree of knowledge behind you. Search online, buy a book or two, ask questions – and don’t give up until you’re happy with the answers.

France is a great place to live but it’s not dreamland and miracles don’t happen just because you want them. If you crash around blindly in the French property market you will find trouble. Do your homework wisely and buying a house in France will be a delight – which is what it should be and what I wish for everyone who is looking.

Gilbert Homes For Sale – Five Helpful Tips Before Buying a House

September 2, 2010 by admin  
Filed under Buying A House

For most, buying a house is a dream come true. Finally, they get the chance to have their very own place.

However, buying a house is unlike buying any commodity in the store. It does not only involve picking a brand, paying for it and taking it with you. Although the concept is the same, purchasing a house can be very difficult. You have to pay attention to details and make your research about the house.

To help you acquire one of those Gilbert Homes for sale with ease check out these tips:

1. It is important that you determine your budget first. How much are you going to pay for the house? How much mortgage are you going to get? Determining your financial capacity will prevent you from checking houses you cannot afford. You can rest assured that the houses you will see are within the price range suitable for the kind of income you are generating. This will also allow you to manage the expenses better to avoid foreclosure in the future.

2. Once you have your price range, you can consult a sales agent. Having a sales agent to assist you will make your search for a house easier. They are aware of various houses on sale and they can present you with the properties that are within your budget. If you are unsure with the first house, they can immediately present a new option for you.

3. When you finally see a house that you like and within your budget, do not get too excited and close the deal. Make sure that you check the neighborhood first. Will the neighborhood provide security? How long will it take you to reach your office? How far is it from the kids’ school? Is water a problem, how about power? It is important that you know these things because these factors will help you have a more comfortable life.

4. If the location appeals to you, ask a professional to inspect the house. Many skip home inspection because they say that it is just an added expense. However, inspecting the house can save you from a lot of trouble. The inspector will check all areas of the house. He will be able to uncover any problems. You can settle this with the seller by either adjusting the price or asking him to repair it. Home inspection is applicable even to new houses. Therefore, even if it were from Gilbert Homes for sale, it would be better to have a home inspector check it.

5. Finally, finish all the paper works needed for the transfer of ownership. You do not want to have problems concerning these documents in the future.

In order to avoid having problems when you purchase a house, make sure that you know what you are buying. Check the house that you can afford. You can ask a sales agent to help you find the right house however, do not forget to check its environment and the house itself before you close the deal.
