Alpine Property Agents Identify Benefit For Potential Buyers With Snow Swappers

Aspect International is the latest specialist agent to form a partnership with Snow Swappers.

Aspect International, Alpine buying consultant in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps, have identified how Snow Swappers can provide a service to their potential clients when it comes to buying a property in a ski resort.

A new partnership has been formed between the two organisations to help promote holiday swapping in the mountains.

When thinking about purchasing a chalet or apartment in a ski resort, the question of flexibility often arises and whilst the buyer might be looking to establish roots in their favourite resort, the thought of losing the choice to ski elsewhere can sometimes put them off buying at all. 

"For an agent or consultant to be able to offer a service like Snow Swappers to their buyers provides another tool in the box for a property owner to feel confident that buying is the right thing to do"

 says Isobel Rostron, founder of Aspect International and well known ski writer. She goes onto say...

"We are delighted to form a partnership with Snow Swappers and be able to provide information to any potential buyer looking to invest in Alpine property".

Since launching in 2011, Snow Swappers has grown into a leading specialist snow destination holiday swapping club. More recent additions to the portfolio include properties in Samoëns in the French Alps, El Colorado, Chile, Alagna, part of the Monterosa ski area in Italy and Niseko, Japan. This means that property owners in Europe have opportunities to ski further afield with no accommodation costs.

Tessa Regan, co-founder of Snow Swappers identified a niche in the market after owning her own apartment in the Alps for several years:

"I wanted to ski in other places myself and that gave me the idea for Snow Swappers. It’s great to see property businesses like Aspect International understanding the concept and seeing how it can benefit their clients. We are really pleased to have them as a partner and hopefully we can see the service continue to grow like it has since we launched two years ago".
