French Property Bargains 2017 - Two For One!

A selection of ten of the best BOGOF properties on the market in France (where you can buy two for the price of one)

Two French properties for the price of one

The past few years have been difficult, financially, and we just have to accept that. In times of uncertainty and austerity, everyone has to watch the pennies. It can be tough. But, there's an upside. The world is full of bargains right now, and the property market is no exception. The French property market has bargains galore, even offering two or more properties for the price of one! We're all used to seeing the promotions in the supermarket. "Buy One, Get One Free", the adverts tempt us. It's a well known sales technique often known as BOGOF. It usually applies to low cost household items, and buyers love it because you really do get more for your money. But, it's rare to see this kind of offer on high value things like property. Houses are simply worth too much to give away. But, in France, in 2017, you really can find properties for sale where you get two or more houses for the price of just one.

BOGOF property - why France is a great place to find these properties

In the UK, it's quite rare to find two properties offered together for the price of one. This is partly because of the British lifestyle, which is very different from the French (Life in France). In France, family is really important. Many properties have been added to over the years to allow extra homes so that different family members can live close together. Another reason why there are these types of properties is that France simply has more space than the countries of the UK. The population density of France is just 116 per square kilometre, compared with 395 per square kilometre in England. So, many properties, especially rural ones, come complete with a lot of land and outbuildings or "dependences", quite a few of which have been turned into residences over time. (Best Property for Sale in France with Dependences.)

Two for one property and the advantages

The most obvious attraction of a two for one property is that you simply get more for your money, of course. But, there are other advantages too. Once you move to France you will quickly realise that you are far more popular then you ever were in the UK! Suddenly, friends and family want to come and spend their holidays with you. Nice as this is, it is also wonderful to be able to let them have their own guest accommodation, so that you can get on with your own normal life instead of constantly cooking and cleaning for guests!

Two for one makes a home and a gite

Another big advantage of buying a two for one property in France is that you can recoup some of the original costs of the purchase by letting out the spare property as a gite (Owning Gîtes and Chambres D'Hotes (B&Bs) in France). Both properties can be completely independent of each other in many cases.
