French Property for Sale by the Owner in 2017

Best Property in France Available Directly from the Owner

Buying direct has benefits

Buying property direct from the owner offers certain benefits to both buyers and sellers. Going it alone can seem a brave move, but ultimately can save you both money and time.

Answers straight from the horse's mouth

If you are a buyer and you've spotted an advert for a property you like, you want straightforward, accurate information about the property, and you want lots of it. If you're speaking to an estate agent, you may or may not get this. It depends on how well the agent has done his (or her) job. Some agents may even be doing their best, but haven't yet had time to visit the property so could be acting on second hand information. The owner, however, is uniquely placed to tell you everything you want to know. Having lived in the property, he will know all the ins and outs and should be able to give you really clear and accurate answers to your questions.

Inside information

While estate agents are keen to sell the properties on their books, their priorities may lie more with some properties than others. Because their commission is calculated on a percentage basis, they may put more effort into marketing the pricier properties. But if you are looking for something on the cheaper side you could find it takes a little longer to get their attention. Buying from a private seller means that this will never be the case. A private seller is focused purely on selling his property, and he will pull out all the stops to answer your questions and arrange your viewings. He will also have an in depth knowledge of the area (he's been living there after all!) which an agent may not have. You'll get an insider's guide to the town, recommendations for the best restaurants and attractions. Many agents cover a wide area, and simply don't have this kind of local information at their fingertips.

Buying? Browsing French Property Links gives you virtual viewing!

Buyers can now enjoy almost virtual visits to properties just by clicking on French Property Links (FPL) adverts. As sellers can add up to 100 photos (all of which can be supersized to large images to give amazing detail) it's almost as good as being there yourself. So you can get a really good idea of whether or not the property is for you before you invest time and money in a trip to France.
