Cheap properties for sale in France under 100k

We have a great selection of cheap French properties for sale in most regions of France under a hundred thousand euros, ranging from very cheap derelict proprieties to totally renovated walk-in condition properties. Now is a great time to buy properties in France with the very favourable  exchange rates, plus current market conditions.
 It is also surprising how many couple choose to view French properties in the autumn and winter months, as they get a better feel for the property when the weather is not influencing their opinions so much.
Feedback from French estate agents tends to be that autumn/winter viewers can be slightly more serious future purchasers of properties, as some spring and summer views tend to add viewing properties as part of their holiday. Although this is not always the case, there are not many people who would travel to France in the middle of winter just to view a property if they were not serious buyers.

Saying that, all properties when sold in France require testing for asbestos products, so any dangers will be highlighted in the report and you will need to employ special contractors for the safe removal  of asbestos in France.

Introducing an Online Market Place for European Removal Companies and Removal Customers



 The RoadAhead is a dedicated team of professionals who are passionate about all things moving. 
The site went live in February 2012 and we are now in our 7th month of trading. In that time there have been some fantastic results and the site has already helped lots of people who are moving to France and the rest of Europe to save money. The site puts customers in touch with reputable European removal companies that they may not have found when using traditional methods.
Below, you will find information on exactly how it works:

Removal Customers
The website is completely free for you to signup with. It takes about 60 seconds to complete the on-line quote form and you will receive an email confirming your removal job is live. After which you will then start to receive bids and questions from removal companies who are interested in helping you with your move.
You can use the website to send messages back and forth until you’re happy you have found a removal company to help you. Remember, you will get prices that differ and the cheapest isn’t always the best. In fact we have proved that over 50% of our removal customers don’t choose the cheapest price.
Once you’re happy and wish to accept a bid, this can be done with one click of a button. After that you’ll be asked to pay a small deposit online with the balance to be paid directly to the removal company. This means you will never pay more than you’ve been quoted for. If you accept a bid for £1000 that’s all you pay.

You can set email preferences and alerts so you only ever get emails for removal jobs that pertain to the areas in which you work. Bidding is easy; just pop your price in and away you go.
There is a secure messaging system so you can ask potential customers questions about their move and there’s  also have a feedback system which will help your reputation grow. In fact many companies use the site as your very own marketing tool and it doesn’t cost you anything.
Once your reputation is established and you have at least one good photo, one good feedback and have been verified you will show as a featured removal company on the homepage.
