Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Season booked but what to do?

Just to say 1200 is for the annual pass, just winter season pass is going to be cheaper, forgot about that. Also, you get a hefty discount as a repeat customer (I paid 760 odd for my annual as a repeat customer and with couples discount).

Well lets hope so but French are extremely stubborn sellers, they will have to be in a lot of distress to drop what they think something is worth.

Funnily enough things here are selling for the asking price.

One of our English friends didn't realise that as he'd engaged an agent the agent would automatically accept any offer at the asking price, and sign the compromis de vente on his behalf.
So his chalet has been sold super fast, and he's wishing he'd put it up for more.
Also he committed the rookie error of only engaging one agent.

This time last years there were 8 chalets for sale here, now there's only one or two I think.
In times on uncertainty when cash is being devalued, gold and property have been the traditional safe havens.
Most people are more familiar with the protocol of buying property than gold and hence choose that option.

The buyers here used to be mainly Dutch, then brits, but recently its been Swiss and older French.

Go go go.

If it goes to poo-poo you can go home or wait it out in the Alps.

Sometimes I read a thread just to see what WhiteGold has to say about it.

The asking price is binding whether you have an agent or not under French law

An unexpected turn of events while at the pub yesterday afternoon. The agent emailed me offering a full refund as the apartment we reserved is up for sale. They have offered alternative accomodation but I opted for a refund and wait for another few weeks and see what's available. A little gutted I must admit but may be an oppotunity to find a cheaper place and possibly go for only for three months. I seem to remember it being possible but the prices weren't that much cheaper than for a full season.
