New French property blog

February 9, 2012

Here’s a new blog opened by one of the oldest players in the French property game: Cheap French Property.

For years they have been unearthing cheap houses for sale in deepest France – many of them village houses in the little village of SW France. As a rule they only list properties under €100,000 and most of these are for sale directly through the owner.

It’s not an estate agent – just a listing site – and all their properties come from small ads, freebie newspapers, handwritten signs on the side of the road … the sort of sources that overseas buyers just don’t have access to.

Every month the listing is introduced by a little piece on the state of the housing market in France that month – interesting insights from people on the ground.

They have now launched a cheap French property blog which examines housing-related questions more thoroughly.

  1. We certainly need more ‘non-agency’ insights: if you believe the guff that’s published in the French (and UK) press on the French property market you could be forgiven for thinking that prices rise steadily every year!

      Well said Robbie! But don’t put all agents in the same basket! Some of us have been saying for a while now that prices are falling and that it is a buyers’ market.
