What’s the cheap­est property you have on your books?

We have a pretty two-bed­room ren­o­vated vil­lage house near Mire­poix, that is an ab­so­lute bar­gain at just €55,000. Un­usu­ally for a house at this price, it’s in fab­u­lous con­di­tion.

How much would you ex­pect to pay for:

a de­tached property with land in good con­di­tion? Prices vary con­sid­er­ably de­pend­ing on how much land the property has, and how close it is to a pop­u­lar town or vil­lage. How­ever, as a rule of thumb, a three/four-bed­room de­tached villa with a large gar­den starts at around €250,000.

a three-bed­room town­house? Again, the lo­ca­tion, out­side space and state of re­pair, have a huge im­pact on the price but as a gen­eral guide, a three-bed­room vil­lage house in good con­di­tion, with a small roof ter­race, in a quiet vil­lage starts at around €100,000 and if you want a house with a gar­den then you’d be look­ing at a start­ing price of €130,000.

a ren­o­va­tion op­por­tu­nity?
