Property market update

As is normal practice for an English estate agency based in the South of France, we do our research.

Whilst looking through various pieces of information on how the current 'Credit Crunch' might be affecting my beloved Languedoc, I came across a wonderful piece that I thought would be good to share with everyone out there interested in France.

It is claimed that house prices in France are on the up with UK property buyers currently in a position to take advantage of investment opportunities.

According to Rightmove Overseas, they have received 251,824 French property searches in one month alone with the most popular provinces including Brittany, Normandy and Languedoc-Roussillon.

In addition, they say that the south of France is emerging as the most popular region with investors and holidaymakers seeking a traditionally French way of life and hot temperatures. And here's the best bit for all of you who have already purchased here in France:
Rightmove Overseas head Justin Figgins said, "Sarkozy's plans will not take effect until later in 2008, giving investors time to purchase French properties before the boom and watch the price of their properties quickly appreciate."

Many British residents are choosing to spend their retirement in the French Riviera. While the Spanish Costas have been the destination choice for many retirees, the French Riviera has a certain prestige.

New surveys for sellers.........

As of November 1st 2007 any property being sold with a fixed gas instalation will need to provide a gas installation survey.
I have just spoken to CODEC, a local company who are the main surveyors in this area. They tell me that a fixed instalation is one where the cooking or heating appliance is connected to a mains gas supply or gas bottle via a fixed pipe.
Unlike a lot of gas hobs that are connected to a gas bottle under the sink vi a flexible gas pipe. These do not require a survey.

Property in Cap D'Agde Naturist Village

I have just been to see a fantastic property for sale in the Cap D'Agde Naturist village.

This two storey, 2 bedroom house is one of the larger properties in the Cap D'Agde Naturist village and has the unusual bonus of sitting on a 300 sqm plot.

This gives the house off street parking, a garage and a secluded garden with small swimming pool.

I hope to be instructed on this house very soon and will let you know as and when this happens.
