The cost effective way to buy and sell your French property.
We will help you buy and sell your French property privately, putting you in control of the whole process and eliminating the need to use expensive French estate agents whose fees can be around 6% or more of the purchase price. Regardless of whether the buyer or the seller ‘pays’ the fee it is a large sum of money which is taken by the estate agent from the proceeds of your house sale on top of the roughly 7% that your buyer will have to pay in notary fees and state property taxes.
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 the property owner pays an all inclusive advertising fee of £85/month and neither the buyer or the seller pays us any estate agency fees.
Advertising your French house with us, you will receive your own property brochure and you will appear on our website. You will feature in our social media and e-mail marketing campaigns. Your property will appear permanently, for the full duration of your commitment, on Zoopla, Rightmove, Greenacres, Huisenaanbod, Kyero, Le Figaro Immobilier, A Place in the Sun and Prime Location. 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 are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Association of Property Professionals and abide by their codes of conduct. For your peace of mind we are also affiliated to The Property Ombudsman scheme.
Our objective is to help you buy and sell your French property and we will accompany you throughout the process. We offer a hands-on, personal and friendly service and are always available to offer you any assistance that we can.
