Paul Niwano, co-founder of VIP and co-director of Val Service has spent the last 25 years in and around the ski industry; primarily in Val d’Isere but also in the Three Valleys region. His thorough understanding of the local market place has become invaluable thanks to a hands-on approach. Summers are split between St Tropez & Lake Tahoe, California, hence our presence in these areas. Buyer or seller – expect a professional and honest opinion, which can only embellish your transaction experience.
Buying: To some people, purchasing a property abroad is a daunting thought. So much paperwork, notaries, legal implications, tax laws to consider and finances to put in to place. The ground rules are different to the UK and the language can be a barrier. At 4 PROPERTY we are English estate agents in France who speak both languages and know the intricate world of buying & selling properties in France. From experience and local knowledge, we give honest yield information essential to making your purchasing decisions.
For those looking for sound business opportunities within the skiing or summer season sectors, we have the experience to offer credible advice. With commercial knowledge we are dedicated to ensuring you make the right business decisions.
We have established relationships with various banks in several countries who offer competitive packages, based on your financial requirements. If you need help setting up your mortgage, let us know and we can introduce you to our contacts. We make the buying experience stress free and friendly and we ensure you get the service you need from start to finish.
Selling: Our ongoing mission is to assist both owners selling their homes, as well as buyers purchasing the home of their future, by providing professional and personal assistance. Through effective marketing and expert service levels we make selling your home as straightforward as possible with honest evaluation and effective results.
Letting: Letting property might be a necessity to owning a home in France. We have an established rental & management service offering various options designed to work with your requirements. Our sister company Mountain Rooms & Chalets specialise in the rental of property. Letting, refurbishing & managing property from a distance can be time consuming and costly. We do it all for you and make ownership stress free by providing a trustworthy service.
Property Management Our other group company, Val Service has 3 divisions: Property Management, Maintenance/Refurbishment and Cleaning. Val Service covers all aspects of absent owner requirements. We work closely with our rental company to advise owners on what is required to maximize rental potential of their property.
We undertake refurbishment of chalets, villas and apartments for either personal or rental purposes. We work with all different shapes and sizes from small studios to large chalets. Builders have a terrible reputation but thankfully we have a great team who deliver on time, work hard and do an exceptional job. They are full time employees who work year round delivering a reliable and superior service.
Renting: Many people like to rent a property in the area they are considering purchasing in prior to actually making any decisions. This is a great idea as you get to experience the area first hand and see if it lives up to your expectations. We can arrange a rental property for you as and when required. Just contact us and we can set you up.
