The cost effective way to buy or sell your French property.


We will help you buy or sell your French property privately, eliminating the need to use expensive French estate agents whose fees can be around 6% or more of the price of a property. Regardless of whether the buyer or the seller ‘pays’ the fee it is a sum of money which is taken by the estate agent from the proceeds of your house sale. It is money you can keep in your own pockets.

For example – if you buy or sell a house for 350 000€ an estate agent’s charges could typically be over 19 000€. With us you could pay as little as £15 a month to receive your own property brochure, advertise on our own website and benefit from our social media and e-mail marketing campaigns. For a little more your property can also be advertised on other major international property websites including Zoopla, Rightmove, Greenacres, Huisenaanbod, A Place in the Sun and Prime Locations. The websites we use are chosen because they consistently deliver genuine leads and because they rank highly with the major search engines and so are easily found in internet searches by buyers around the world.

We also work with trusted professionals in the legal, finance and marketing sectors, are members of the Association of Property Professionals and abide by their code of conduct. For your peace of mind we are also affiliated to The Property Ombudsman scheme. While you are subscribing to our service, and included in your fee, you have access to our help-line and other resources. This includes guidelines covering most aspects of a property sale and access to our trusted list of contacts who should be able to help you whenever we can't. Our objective is to help you sell your French property and we will accompany you throughout the process.

Increasingly, our clients come to us by word of mouth and recommendation and we value their trust in us

Here are two testimonials from September 2020:

"I would highly recommend French Properties Direct for advertising a home for sale by owner in France.  We had a multitude of inquiries from many different countries which has culminated in a sale.  Susan was very responsive and helpful to make changes and was always available for questions."  Mrs L, Calvados

"We sold our home quickly thanks to French Properties Direct.  Fabulous service."   Mrs P, Gers

And two from October 2020:

"After long months of dismay dealing with French estate agents a friend recommended you. Your service is excellent and amazingly effective. We went from having nil interest to achieving a quick sale and turning people away after only a couple of weeks. Well done Sue!"  Mr B, Lot et Garonne

"Dealing with French Properties Direct has been a very positive experience and we would like to thank you for all your outstanding help, support and advice. We have recently sold our property after receiving many enquiries via French Properties Direct from all over Europe and we would definitely recommend French Properties Direct to others." Mrs B, Gironde
