Why buy a flat in Bordeaux?
Are you thinking of buying a flat in Bordeaux? You don’t know exactly how to go about it? Then we’ll give you all the advice you need in this article and guide you through each step so that your purchase project becomes a reality!
If you want to move your pied-à-terre or invest in a city other than the one you live in, it is perfectly possible! However, you should also bear in mind that the city of Bordeaux is full of advantages for your investment. Here are the various good reasons why you should opt for this city and buy a house or a flat in Bordeaux:
The richness of the heritage. Bordeaux is a city full of places to visit and incredible historical monuments. So if you really want to treat yourself by investing or buying a property in Bordeaux, we can only encourage you. It is also worth noting that you will easily be able to find interesting properties to buy a house or a flat in Bordeaux within the budget that could best suit you. If you have never visited the city of Bordeaux, you should note that among the monuments to see are: the Grand Theatre, the Place de la Bourse, the Porte Cailhau, the Grosse Cloche or the Saint-André cathedral.
In Bordeaux, you will be able to enjoy a quality of life that will be seen as exceptional, being close to all amenities. Indeed, this city offers a pedestrian city centre, a network of buses and trams, but also 29,000 hectares of natural spaces. It is a city which is not necessarily small, but which remains truly human in scale. Also, if you are a cyclist, you will be able to ride the 700 km of cycle paths that have been set up throughout the city.
Bordeaux is also the wine capital of the world. Every wine lover knows this city, but above all it offers the best possible vintages. So, if you love wine and want to be close to the best vines, buying an apartment in Bordeaux can be a really good idea. This way, you can combine business with pleasure by having the opportunity to fill your cellar once you have found a nice flat in the heart of Bordeaux.
The city of Bordeaux also has a strong economic appeal. So, when you go to buy a Bordeaux flat, you will be able to find a dynamic city that is perfect for you. It should also be noted that the city has many economic clusters such as aeronautics, neuroscience, laser optics, geoscience and wood, for example.
The last advantage you might have in buying a Bordeaux flat is simply the fact that it is a perfectly connected city. It takes 2 hours to reach Paris via the high speed line set up by the SNCF. Note also that its airport serves 80 destinations throughout Europe as well. If you want to travel, Bordeaux airport is ideal.
As you can see, buying an apartment in Bordeaux can be particularly interesting. However, you still need to identify the right criteria to find a property that might suit you among the properties for sale. In particular, you will have to choose between a new or old property, a large residence or a small condominium, and of course decide whether you want to do major work or opt for a recently renovated flat.
BUYING AN APARTMENT IN BORDEAUX: THE ADVICE WE CAN GIVE YOU!
Whether you want to buy your own home or simply invest in rental property in Bordeaux, it is important to note a few tips. These will help you make the best possible choices when you go to buy your Bordeaux flat.
Opt for a property that is slightly out of the city centre. Living close to all the amenities and in the euphoria of the city can be interesting, but many people look for quiet areas instead. You are more likely to find a property with features that are rare in the centre, such as an open view, a large terrace or a south-facing exterior. It is also worth noting that if you go slightly out of your way, you can always find public transport that will get you to the city centre in just a few minutes. Rather interesting, don’t you think?
Always position yourself near public transport. This can be a good idea when buying an apartment in Bordeaux or a house. Indeed, you will be perfectly able to reach the city centre or other peripheral cities directly, without having to take your car. This can be particularly interesting if you want to do an afternoon’s shopping or if you want to get to your workplace without having to take your car, while remaining close to the city centre.
It is also possible to buy a Bordeaux flat in the new districts, offering certain advantages such as not having to carry out any work, or reduced notary fees on certain programmes. However, you should be aware of the environment. If you decide to buy your main residence, you should also think about resale. If you want to buy and sell, you should avoid new areas and focus your search on older properties instead. For rental investment, we advise you to take into account the setting and to choose a location close to shops. Just because you are investing in a new area does not mean that the setting is necessarily a success and that your property will increase in value.
The right bank of the Garonne: if you want to buy an apartment in Bordeaux with good value for money and generally renovated with a lift, this is certainly the place you should turn to. Indeed, prices are more affordable and you will easily find something that fits your budget, while remaining close to the centre. It should also be noted that these properties may also have a higher resale value, as the area is undergoing a major transformation: this is a point that should not be overlooked when buying in a recent building.
You also have the possibility of investing in the hyper-centre. However, even if you choose to buy a safe flat in Bordeaux, you still have to pay a high price. If you don’t have enough money, you will certainly have to turn to another district, which will be more affordable, while remaining perfect for a main residence or for an investor.
If you are looking for a rental investment, the best advice we can give you is simply to opt for the student districts. Indeed, Bordeaux is a city with a lot of students, so buying a studio in this type of place will generally be interesting, as the property will be easily rented, or can even be sold rented. So, if you want your flat to find a tenant quickly, student areas are very good options: you can, for example, share a flat. This way, you will have a flat that will never be empty from one year to the next and that will have few, if any, vacancies. This can be very reassuring when investing in real estate, in addition to efficient and delegated rental management.
You also have the possibility of moving closer to the economic centres for your flat purchase in Bordeaux. Indeed, if you wish to rent the latter to young workers, you will be perfectly able to do so by being close to these areas. In addition, there is a relatively high demand for rental property.
Investing in Bordeaux can therefore be a good idea, whether it’s in a duplex, a two-bedroom flat, a loft or even a life annuity! So, we hope that the advice we have given you will help you to find the best possible accommodation among the flats for sale. We can of course assist you in your search for a property and therefore find your future home or investment that suits your profile.

SELLING A FLAT IN BORDEAUX: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE PUTTING IT UP FOR SALE

If you decide to sell your property in Bordeaux, you need to have a place to go next. Once the deed of sale is signed, you will only have a few months to find accommodation elsewhere. If you have decided to buy somewhere else, you should make sure that the time frame for each property sale is as short as possible.
Also remember to be flexible on the price. The aim is not to lower the price of your property too much, but simply to leave room for manoeuvre if a buyer is interested in acquiring it, subject to negotiation. In the event of significant negotiation, be aware that the agency will generally be able to re-evaluate its fees in order to trigger the sale. In addition, you should know that the new owner will in all cases have renovation costs, such as the installation of double glazing or the installation of a fitted kitchen, and will therefore seek to impact the sale price according to his budget for works.
