Plus ca change .. or deja vu all over again
What is a cheap house in the Aude?
You’d be amazed at how many people end up at Aude France because they searched for "cheap houses for sale in the Aude", or some minor variation of the phrase. Today I added a category named just that.
It’s not new, the quest for cheap property in the south of France. On Oct 25, 2004 the post was titled (you’ve probably guessed already) Cheap Houses in the Aude.
It’s worth reading if you’re hoping to buy a house in the Aude and your budget is limited.
The numbers have changed but the message is the same
- Be prepared to have work done on the house – or to do it yourself
- Be prepared to fore go outside space if your budget is really limited
- Be creative when it comes to outdoor space – think in terms of tearing down a barn to make a garden, or taking the roof off to make a court
- Be realistic. Remember, there’s a reason that cheap houses are cheap
- Be flexible about area
- Be prepared to buy in a small village without amenities
Remember, at the low end of the market prices for anything with any kind of outdoor space just keep going up. A cheap house in the Aude is a movable feast.
