Thinking of Selling your French Property Privately - 2017?

Selling your property in France directly is easier than you think

Consider selling your French property privately

If you've got a property to sell in France, have you considered the option of selling privately, without using an estate agent? In the UK, most sellers automatically turn to an estate agent, but in France this is often not the case. In fact, around half of the properties sold in France are sold privately.

A good way to save money

Immobiliers, or estate agents, in France charge a lot more for a sale than UK agents do. Although traditionally the practice used to be to charge the commission fee to the buyer of the property, these days it may be the seller who pays the agent. Either way, the fee is likely to be substantial (up to 10% is not uncommon), so doing away with it will definitely save somebody money! Many people have sold their properties through French Property Links (FPL), without having to use (or pay!) an estate agent. A typical advertiser commented: "The house is now sold and I must say I would not have sold unless I advertised with you - the response has been wonderful. All year I had people coming through off the site, so thanks, keep it up and I will recommend you where I can." Neil K.

Selling? Advertising with FPL has so many benefits!

If you're planning to sell your French property, before you engage an agent take a look at what FPL can do for you. FPL has great search engine positions so your property will easily be found. The site is simple to use, and it's really easy to upload your property description and photos. And, if you do need help, the friendly team are standing by to help and advise you. There are thousands of serious buyers visiting the site every day and their enquiries come directly to you. When you choose to advertise with FPL, you might find there are additional benefits on top of the very reasonable rates, great ads, friendly help and powerful internet presence. FPL frequently publishes articles just like this one, so your property can benefit from extra special exposure too!

New - add up to 100 photos of your property

Did you know that you can now not only link your advert to your own website, but you can upload up to 100 extra large photos to help sell your property on FPL? Research has proved that photos sell properties, so we figured you couldn't have too much of a good thing. A picture's worth a thousand words - even more so when you consider that would be purchasers have to travel a thousand miles or more in many cases to view the property. If they can get a really clear picture of it in the comfort of their own homes, they're more likely to be serious buyers when they arrive to view.

French property for sale on FPL

To get an idea of just how good FPL's ads are, take a look at these properties. Whether you have a mansion, a cottage, or even a lake, you need an advert to do it justice. And that's exactly what FPL can do.
