House or apartment?

Would it unexceptionally be a matter of purchasers who are solely looking for a permanent residence who we are approaching with this ebook then this question would not be posed here because everyone knows what they want according to their ideas and financial possibilities. A large part of those who are addressed here will however only use their real estate purchase occasionally as secondary or third residence. In this case it is absolutely reasonable to think in depth about what is to happen with the property in times of absence, who will take care of the garden and so on.

A considerable number of estates therefore dispose of granny flats which are rented with the obligation to take care of the house or caretaker houses in which a salaried or part time working caretaker („gardien“) lives who takes care of all necessities.

In cases where this is not applicable an according service for the required services must be organised. This is possible.

When deciding upon an apartment a large part of these problems does not apply or rather they are conveyed to the administrator of the living facility.
