Property Search Consultants - Services

Property – Advice – Search – Ownership – Management

Alpine Specialist offers a comprehensive service for all aspects of property purchase, ownership and management. Once we have located the perfect property for you we are on hand to guide you through every step of the purchase process up to completion and beyond.

How do we begin?

Listening first
We start with an informal discussion to understand your goals and property requirements. Then we outline the objectives of the proposed property search and the other services you instruct us to provide.

As much advice as you need
With our inside knowledge of Europe's premier ski resorts we can advise you on the best location for your luxury ski property purchase. You may also need other tax and legal advice before investing. Our network of multi-lingual legal and finance contacts across France and Switzerland ensure you have access to the best necessary advice at every step of the purchase process.

Property search

Finding the right property for you
Using our extensive network of contacts, property sellers and estate agents across the French and Swiss Alps we identify the winter apartments and chalets for sale in France and Switzerland that fit your property specifications. We correspond with the sellers on your behalf and visit the resort to view any properties that are particularly suitable.

Our guides to French ski resorts and Swiss ski resorts are a good starting point for narrowing down the desired location of your ski chalet or apartment.

Reporting the options
After an extensive and pro-active search we present you with a portfolio of suitable chalets and apartments for sale in your chosen location. Our report advises on the pros and cons of each property and includes floorplans, measurements, interior and exterior photographs and translated sales particulars (as required). Should you wish to visit the property we can accompany you and arrange your accommodation and travel plans.

Staying in touch
We send you regular updates and reports throughout by email, telephone or post as best suits you, and in English or French (with other languages arranged on request).

Property purchase process

Negotiation and purchase
On your behalf we negotiate the price and all other terms and conditions of sale with the property seller or their estate agent.

Mortgages and financing
Alpine Specialist can introduce you to banks offering finance for property purchase in France and Switzerland and help you organise a loan or mortgage for your property investment.

Legal and tax advice
Our guide to buying property in France and Switzerland gives you an overview of the considerations when buying French and Swiss Luxury Ski Chalets. Should you require further advice on any aspect of the purchase process including more complex tax and estate planning, we can introduce you to property lawyers, accountants and French and Swiss notaries.

After purchase

An ongoing relationship for peace of mind
Few of our clients live in their new chalet or apartment year-round. Our resort-based after-purchase service is on hand to deal with any property management or maintenance issues that may arise. Whether you need somebody to oversee major building works, advise on renovation or re-decoration, carry out minor maintenance jobs or arrange for a house-keeper or gardener, we can take care of it.
