Primelocation blog awards - pls don't vote more than once
I had an email earlier today from a beautiful cousin of mine on the other side of the world. She told me that she'd voted for me a dozen times. Of course I love her dearly for this and am truly grateful for her kind support.
It's not really cricket though and against the spirit of things so, tempting as it is, please only cast a single vote per person.
I'm grateful too to the owners of my favourite internet café who have encouraged all their regulars to put down their café & croissants and vote for their "local" entrepreneur (whether they can read English or not).
It's all a bit of fun and takes my mind away from what is a pretty appalling property market over here. I was out with a well known French agent this morning and I asked him what style of house was currently in vogue with his local buyers.
"Graham" he said "they couldn't care less about the style - they're interested in one thing only and that's the price. If it's cheap enough they'll buy it otherwise they'll wait".
It's a buyers market for sure. There are some terrific bargains around and if you're considering buying in France this year your problem will be wading through the average & good to find the outstanding.
