The Referendum Edges Closer – Be Prepared
The Close Approaching EU Referendum
With the date of the EU vote getting closer some buyers have decided to wait for the result before they carry on with their property search. Other wiser people are getting prepared to get out to France to choose a home as soon as the vote confirms that we will remain in the EU…and I guess with all of us voting this way, this will be the result!
So why the rush to be prepared. Well, we believe that many Brits will breathe a sigh of relief if REMAIN wins and know that they can proceed with their buying plans. However, agents in France who are already in the middle of their busy season may not have the time to answer all your questions or to arrange a viewing for you at short notice.
So be at the front of the queue by
- Ensuring you know where you want to buy. Talk to me, I know France really well and am always really happy to help clients find the right area to suit their requirements.
- Finding some suitable properties and beginning a dialogue with my partner agents so that they know what you are looking for and are ready to sort out your viewing trip when you get your travel date sorted.
- Contact our currency company Pure FX to set up a currency account.
- Check on your finances to know how much you can borrow (unless you are fortunate enough to be a cash buyer) and then decide whether to remortgage your current property or to contact our mortgage partners.
So, let’s all ensure we stay in the EU by voting on the 23rd and meanwhile get all your buying plans in place. Your home in Europe, our Europe, is just around the corner.
