are essential if your gîte is to make an ROI.
Staying on top of the condition of your property is a must, particularly when your property is your business.
Many French estate agents are aware of the British love affair with old French property and the ‘coup de cœur’ which overrides buyer rationale. But, the charismatic charm of your bijoux may quickly wear off once when your property’s development and maintenance goes beyond time, budget and break-even.
‘Never buy property which you cannot walk away from’ is a common expression in the world of property investment and is sound advice if you are struck by the ‘coup de cœur’. Remaining detached from your investment property may allow you to calculate development and maintenance cost realistically and to factor maintenance cost over wear and tear. Further, old traditional French property may require more expensive building materials and protracted maintenance works.
Once your gîte has been brought to a marketable standard and is ready for ‘holiday let’, then it is important to implement a basic regular maintenance programme to safeguard against unexpected expenditure and the unavoidable decommissioning of your gîte in high season. Schedule a maintenance services programme to stay on top of investment property and to reduce costly and protracted maintenance works.
Our maintenance services programme covers:
- Traditional French chaux lime render pointing
- Stud partitioning
- Plaster boarding
- Wet plaster work
- Floor tiling
- Wall tiling
