    I’ve been busy doing OHD related stuff so haven’t had time to do OHDO searches. I have way more French properties since listings there are easier to look through, many more French properties to come this week.

      Interesting—why are French properties easier? I would figure England, Scotland, and Ireland would be easier, because of language. But even aside from language, is France easier than, say, Italy or Spain? Just idle curiosity here, since I’m happy to look at anything!

        I’ve been having to spend time on OHD things and not able to so international searches. My list for France right now exceeds the other countries. England, Scotland and Ireland are easy to search but I’ve not had the time. I’ve only got about 10 more states to go and I can use my evenings for international searches instead of the states to dig into Germany, Spain and not just France, England, etc.

          Well, I’m not complaining! I’m interested in looking at houses almost anywhere. I was just curious about the ins and outs of searching for foreign property. I haven’t done it much, though I’ve looked a bit in England and Ireland and Canada.

    Nice countryside setting with the pond! I like the mix of stones and bricks in the buildings. One thing is that white PVC windows are very often used as replacement to old wooden windows and it might alter the charm a bit. I like the built-in cupboard next to the fireplace!

      • Miss-Apple37

        Well, that’s a good question… I would say PVC because of the white hinges we can see on the tiny square window in one of the bedrooms. And the muntins seem to be between the 2 layers of glass and not on top of it. (of course this could be done with wood too). But you’re right, we can’t be 100% sure what they are made of.

            No you can’t look online for taxes. Only the owners and the tax department can give this information. There are 2 taxes when you own real estate: 1) property tax, and 2) council/residence tax. The 2nd one benefits to the town but the government is currently working on eliminating it by 2019 or 2020. I’d say they’re more or less of the same amount, about worth a month of rent. Of course it can highly differ according to where it is, either in a city or in the countryside, and even in the countryside if it’s in the village or in a small hamlet with no facilities (public sewage, lighting, etc…).
