FindHomeAbroad is a renowned real estate agency specialising in the sale of luxurious new-build ski chalets in the stunning French Alps. Since 1998, our team of expert agents has been helping clients find their dream second home in some of the most coveted ski resorts in the region.
Our extensive portfolio includes a range of superb new-build ski chalet projects, from cosy three-bedroom properties around the 100 sqm mark to spacious five-bedroom or more chalets with a host of luxurious amenities (over 300 sqm for some). Each chalet is designed with the utmost attention to detail, offering lavish finishes and modern conveniences to provide the ultimate ski vacation experience.
One of the key benefits of investing in a new-build ski chalet is the opportunity to customise the finishes and features to your personal preferences. Many of our ski chalets offer the chance to choose from a variety of styles and materials, allowing you to infuse your ski chalet with your own unique style. Additionally, new-build ski chalets come with a 10-year guarantee, providing peace of mind and protection for your investment. A new-build ski chalet will typically require less maintenance in the early years of ownership due to the fact that all of the systems and materials are new and in good working order. However, as the property ages, it will eventually need to be maintained and potentially renovated, just like any other ski property.
In addition to the benefits of customisation and the 10-year guarantee, new-build ski chalets also offer the latest in modern amenities and technology. From fully equipped gourmet kitchens and spa-like bathrooms to advanced home automation systems and fast internet, our properties are designed to provide the highest level of comfort and convenience.
Another benefit of purchasing a new-build ski chalet is the potential for reduced legal fees and stamp duty. On average, legal fees for new-build properties are around 2%, compared to 7-8% for resale properties. Additionally, if you opt for our in-house rental management service, you may be able to claim back the 20% VAT on the purchase price of your ski chalet. Our team will assist you with the reclaim process.
Ski chalets are generally more expensive to purchase than apartments due to their larger size and the high demand for such properties in popular ski resorts. As a result, developers may be less inclined to invest in building new ski chalets, instead opting to focus on developing smaller, more affordable units such as apartments.
