5 weeks on the market and the 2nd viewer!!!!!!!
Who said that you cannot sell a house in France???????
The couple who came to view were so nice, we completed the viewing and they stayed for coffee and we got chatting (for a couple of hours) they love the house as much as we do, it fits all of their needs and is the correct price.
We accept the offer the following morning, now we just have to get the wheels in motion as they want to complete if possible before the beginning of April.
And just to make the day perfect our friends arrive, so we can celebrate with them, and celebrate we do (for a solid 48 hours, I feel so tired at the end of their visit).
It is now a very strange feeling there is so much to do for the sale, as in France the owners are responsible for getting all the diagnostiques completed (these are the equivalent of the survey in the UK).
This is a much more sensible way of doing things, the diagnostiques have to be completed by a registered company and then are available to all potential purchasers, rather than the purchaser having to have them completed on each house they are interested in.
Bloody hell we will be leaving our renovation project in possibly less than 2 months!!!!
We already have our next one lined up in the same village, but we are now seriously considering trying our luck in Spain, can we do it again in another new country? Do I really want to be learning another new language?
But the idea of getting to experience another culture is so exciting, and this time my only stipulation is I will not move into any other house with out an inside toilet, I have found my limitations!
