Property Renovation

Property renovation Old house at Mortschach[/caption]

Q: So what should I look for when considering a property for renovation.

A.: Logic dictates that people are at first interested in a bargain price! But one has to consider many other factors?

Can the renovation be a DIY project, in other words, is there basic upgrading with not too m8uch building work.

Many DIY buyers do mof course have experience of renovating property in the UK. But this is not the same for Austria. There are many challanges, the easiest of which is simply finding out where to buy materials?

Over the years Austrians have taken more to DIY…I can remember my own first experience trying to find paint in colours…at that time, all paint was mixed to the colour you wanted…there was not off the shelf tins of Powder blue, yellow, green etc. You bought white paint and a small jar of a colour, which you then mixed together…it was very hit and miss!!

Things got better when the stores started to do the mixing for you with machines. This was certainly more accurate.

Then you had the problem for plaster!! There wa no simple npink plaster that bwe used in UK, it was more or less a white cement!! It was almost impossible to get a smooth surface..this was when I found out why all walls in old Austrian house were rough finish!!

Holidays in Austria

Wolfgangsee Lake in Salzburgland

Many guests prefer a privately owned Chalet or Apartment for their holidays. This can give the nice feeling of independence to come and go as a family pleases. No fixed meal times or worry about disturbing other guests.

Many clients prefer book private Chalets or apartment, so they can be free to research an area before deciding to purchase themselves.

Private Chalets have the advantage that they can be holiday let for short periods, from a week long duration to over 3 months.

Private holiday apartments unless in a hotel complex and to comply with local regulations, are for bookings of over 28 days….so effectively for the longer stay guests and very cost effective. Great for familes who can take their holidays one after another. Mum and Dad go one week, the grandparents the next, the children the next and then maybe friends have the last week?

Private chalets are also, very suitable for our friends from around the world when touring Europe for a few months, as this works out much cheaper than hotels.
