Re: Secret to selling a house in France

I agree nomoss, had I wanted to move back to the UK it would have been a completely different story! 🙁

Re: Secret to selling a house in France

Not sure that moving back to the UK would have been all that different a story.

Just done a back of fag packet type of calculation and:

assuming figures of Jo are in euros then

actual house price inflation from 2006 is about 20% averaged over UK.

pound/euro exchange rate is about 25% different - more pounds for your euro.

So, probably about the same loss if moving to an "average" region in the UK.

Re: Secret to selling a house in France

Unfortunately I sold in July 2015 when it was 1.47 euros to the pound! Oh happy days!!

Re: Secret to selling a house in France

OK - good job you stayed in France then!

Looking on the bright side you could probably be 25% better off now!

Re: Secret to selling a house in France

I have just had a look at the site you posted Norman, didn't get chance before. It seems strange to me that you could have a totally Gerry built place with a really well built one beside it and if they were the same area they would be worth the same? Totally on the m2.

It seems a bit like that a good make car is worth the same as a real c r a p job as long as it has the same size shadow with the sun directly overhead?

Re: Secret to selling a house in France

I dont think that the one I posted goes on square meters at all...
It is the actual prices paid in recent sales.

The one that has the square metres idea is surely the estate agents one? meilleurs agents lol

Re: Secret to selling a house in France

Without signing in again Norman that is the same site that quoted both the overall value of houses sold within 5k and a year of us. It gave the price and the m2. I can't be a r s e d to go through that again at the mo, but if you wish I will and take a screen dump of it?

Honestly, that is what I got.

But the point is that those are the actual prices., so even if it seems strange that two were the same it isn't a question of a 'valuation', it is simply a record of what was paid.
That is the difference between that site an an estate agent's.
Flats around mine in the village vary wildly in the price paid per m2.
