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 £30 a month to advertise on major international property portals such as A Place in the Sun, Zoopla and Prime Locations. For a little more each month we can add Greenacres and Rightmove marketing.
Here's why you should advertise with us now....
We use the top ranking international portals to get results and save you time and money.
Rightmove Overseas – The UK’s favourite property portal also invests heavily in overseas property marketing and is the go-to site for anyone looking for property. Regularly appearing at the top of the first page with search engines they also target other English speaking countries around the world as well as having a Scandinavian site.
Greenacres Global Marketing – Also consistently at or near the top of search engine results. We use their Global advertising package which costs us more than other marketing portals, but delivers consistently high results from across Europe and beyond thanks to their comprehensive network of websites and sophisticated internet marketing skills.
Zoopla – A well known property marketing brand which has a loyal British following
Prime Location – A web site created to market properties with that little bit extra about them.
A Place in the Sun - This web site is memorable because of its association with the television program and series of property exhibition, APITS, as it is colloquially known, markets its properties highly pro-actively and delivers the results.
We have chosen these sites above any others because they invest heavily in search engine marketing and optimisation, meaning that they are regularly at or very near the top of major search engine results when anyone, anywhere in the world, does an internet search for property in France. Rightmove and Greenacres, in particular, currently hold dominant positions when buyers "Google" French property for sale. The result is that our adverts on these sites are easily found by buyers from across the world who are searching for a property in France. All of the above sites also present your property for sale professionally and without too many supplementary adverts and "pop-ups" which we believe are distractions.
When we say we will list your properties with the portals we use we will list them for the full period of your subscription.
We back all of this up with our own weekly targeted mail shots, blogs and publications which are popular with the ex-pat community in France and the UK, Facebook campaigns and Tweets plus, of course, your own property page, with its own internet address, on our website.
There are no further fees for buyer or seller to pay us when you sell
We help you write your advert which can include floor-plans, videos and drone photography and we design a brochure you or your buyers can download. We can even link your advert on our site to your own website(s).
Our info pages will help you through the practicalities and legalities of property transactions in France with regular updates via our News features and mail-shots to registered vendors and buyers.
