Despite the effects of the recession, European property renovation is still a viable way to facilitate a move to another country in Europe – and not only is it a great excuse for e.g. Moving to Belgium or moving to France, but it can be a lot of fun too.
Some places in Europe will be better destinations for a property renovation project than others; for example, the reason why when we think of European property renovations we think of France, and that is because, uniquely, France has an abundance of old “character” properties just waiting to be snapped up by eager Brits relocating to France.
With the French experience in mind then, is European property renovation a good idea? Well this demands squarely on your own commitment to moving to France to live in a renovated property. As quite simply, renovation will always be a real challenge despite the abundance of suitable properties throughout Europe.
There are many things that will make a renovation project difficult – from the red tape that is common in a country like France in particular, and of course the language barrier. However all these problems can easily be surmounted and if you are able to foster a genuinely good relationship with builders (or masons) etc, then you really do have a real shot at building a dream home.
Whatever your reasons for moving to France or anywhere in Europe, whether it’s for property renovation or otherwise, with Europe Remove we like to think that we take all the hassle out of moving day.
