Bugatti.

 

Last Week, about, 30, 40 Bugatti have drive across BRICQUEBEC. What a nice event to see so many old and nice cars in the same place.

Sorry for the quality of the picture that have been taken throught the window of our office, with a mobil of poor quality!
 


Voilà, nous y sommes aussi.

 

Because most of the client have one, because the 25-35 years lod buyers spend their life on it, we have to carry on through pressure : we have our on Facebook page.

We just hope that in the futur, the fashion will not be to wear a pen where you know!!!

Here is the link to your Facebook page.

The storks invasion.

 

Las year, we have seen one stork's nest in St SAUVEUR area. This year, we have managed to count three nest, always in St SAUVEUR area. I suppose that there is a good reason why the sorks like our area : it is a nice place!
 


Happy new year and new

 

The agency wish you and happy new happy for 2017!

After 17 years in the same décoration, it was time to do something. Of course, the paint do not come from Farrow and Ball. We are too posh to use
the same paint that every body (French humour)!

To finish, we have the frame to hang frames.
 


Les grosses têtes et l'immobilier.

 

C'est en se rendant à une estimation que nous avons eu l'occasion d'entendre à la radio, dans l'émission Les Grosses têtes de Laurent RUQUIER, ce qui suit :

A la question de Laurent Ruquier : "Quel film a remporté huit Oscars en 1954, se passait à Pearl Harbour, et qui fût le premier film sur l'attaque de Pearl Harbour ?"

Réponse, fausse s'entend, d'un célèbre agent immobilier, dont on vous laissera le soin de deviner le nom : "Apocalypse Now".
Nous vous laissons juge des décalages de temps : 1941 pour l'un et années 70 pour l'autre; et de lieu...

Pour ne pas mourir idiot, le film dont il s'agissait, est : "Tant qu'il y aura des hommes".
 


Partnership with a British agent.

 

Here is our new partner : Country Home France, an English agent. So, if you are looking to market your house, do not hesitate to contact us, or them.

That include BRIQUEBEC and SAINT SAUVEUR LE VICOMTE, knowing that on St SAUVEUR, the prices are lower than in BRICQUEBEC.
 


For sale since five years.

 

After spending 5 years to sunbathe, here is the apsect of a sign of L'Agence du Donjon.

It have just been replace by one of his brother brand-new, and we hope that next time it will be a sign "Sold by the agency", who will replace the new one, and this before 5 years time...
 


Mods are not dead ?

 

Today, about 10 scooters have drive across BRICQUEBEC. May be it was English owners who confused BRICQUEBEC and BRIGTHON ?
 


DPE : explanations.

 

Here you can find explanations on the famous Energies efficiency.

As dream most of the French people, it is not possible to buy a 2nd hand house in "A", and rare in "B or C".

After riding this docment, we hope that French people will be reasonnable, and that they will forget their dream of buying a second hand house with a good ranking.
 


Nice décoration.

 

Nice flag on the château of SAINT SAUVEUR LE VICOMTE, who make him nicer!
 


Nice score for the horse ball team of Les Pieux.

TESS, Roman POLANSKI's movie wall paper.

 

Most of the famous movie TESS, have been shot in La Hague. But we learn today, that some scenes of this film have been shot in SAINT JACQUES DE NEHOU.

Too up to date!

 

Now it is working, our web site is compatible with your smartphone. Wonderful!
 


Where the heat goes away ?

 

The French buyers are obsessed with the PVC windows double glazing.

When you see where the heat goes away, we are not sure it is reasonable to spend money to replace simple glazing windows in good condition, by new PVC windows.

But our clients love them...
 


New book from the French philosopher : J-Pierre Le Goff

 

En exclusivité voici la couverture du nouveau livre de l'équeurdrevillais/sociologue Jean-Pierre Le Goff.
 


Progress ?

 

In France, like in Brighton, and may be some other place, new toilets have been invented : no-sex toilets. In France now, some people demonstrate for this, because it create discrimination for the women, or the one who consider them as no sex.

In France, you can continue to have picture of children in magazine, you can continue to spank your children, your wife (if she like it), or you husband (if he like it). In france, only 10 % of the French girl use their smartphone (58 % in UK) want they make love. What is the best country, I don't know.

 


Skinflint a quality ?

 

For me : skinflint is a defect. But, because no one what to pay the price for things, a web site have been created : skinflint.com, in French : radins.com.

Good new! We are kidding, of course, because, if no body want to continue to pay for music, building house... or a service, in 20 years, it will be impossible to buy something, because there will have nothing for sale!

If you add to that the purchase on the web, in 20 years again, there will have no more shop in our town center.

 


We add on leboncoin.fr

 

leboncoin.fr is the cousin of gumtree.co.uk. We add on it to market houses.
 


New logo for the place to be in St SAUVEUR LE VICOMTE.

 

Coming back from Brighton, Céline and Serge have created a new logo who include perfectly their passion for the scooter, and the name of their bar-restaurant-pizza (Friday and Saturday night).

If you have never been there, run here, it is one of the best place in our area!

Watching the notaire statistics, the price of the house have drop of 7,7 % in our area in the last quater... When will it stop ?
 


Level of life !

 

Here you can find the amount of money earn per year by a family in La Manche.

Each little peace of the puzzle is a village. As you have understood, the North of the peninsula is richer than the South (Bricquebec and St SAUVEUR included).
 


Good news ?

 

The Crédit Agricole have order a survey. The conclusion of it, say that the price of the houses in France are too expensive of 15 % !!!

Sexualy neutral.

 

In Sweden, a catalog for toy want special page "sexualy neutral" : no toys for boys, and no toys for girls.

All the toys should be for boys and girls.

As you can see on those pics, in the future, girls and boys can be serial killer.
 


Very nice.

Nothing to say about the fitting of the pipe, it is just his support who make us smile!!!
 


Feminization of the jobs.

 

In 2000, on the 14 notaires who was established around us, only one was a woman.

Les détails qui tuent!

 

If we are estate agent, it is because we like (love ?) nice old house. Here are some example.
 


84 % of the houses sold, are sold under 150 000 .

 

In la Manche, 84 % of the houses sold are under 150 000 % (exactly 59 % under 100 000 and 25 % between 100 000 % and 150 000 ).
That mean that 16 % of the properties sold in 2010, was sold with a price over 150 000 ....
 


Forsal.

 

Forsal : that roughly, that way it is writyen in French, what should be "A VENDRE". A little detail : the owner of the house is French.
 


L'Agence du Donjon on the French TV : TF1.

 

Lats Wednesday, 2 journalist from the French TV : TF1, come to enquired about the fact taht a few English people expect to sale back their French properties.

Us, in the local new paper.

 

Mme BELLEUX, journalist for La Presse de la Manche, have came to speak with us of the fact that some Englsih people expect to sale their property, to go back to UK.
As you know this is due to : the strong euro, the bad ferries line from Cherbourg and some time the age of those people who expect to finish their life in their country.
 


Support.

 

Each year we have to pay a tax to support school who learn a job to young people.
So this year, because we are interested in horses, we have decided to give the amount of the tax to a school based in South of La Manche, who teach how to breed horses.
