THE FRENCH PROPERTY FINDERS do not take on property listings and exclusively represent buyers in their property search and acquisition in France. Thus, we avoid all conflict of interest with the vendor or their agent. We are your unbiased local property expert, protecting only your interest during the search, selection process, price negotiations and purchase process.
In France, there is no central or multi-listing system where all properties can be accessed by all agents.
Prices of properties sold are not publicly available and outsiders cannot know the true market value of a property.
Vendor agents do not share their listings with all their colleagues and often keep the best properties “confidential.”
Instead of you having to contact countless listing agents, TFPF are your central contact and have access to 100% of the market, including private sales and confidential (off-market) listings.
Searching in France can mean many wasted trips to view properties that do not fit your requirements. There can be hundreds of estate agents in any area, with different portfolios. If you would manage to contact all of them, your in-box would overflow with listing particulars not even close to what you’re looking for.
Our service makes the process as efficient and cost-effective as possible. Most clients only need to come over for one viewing visit and for some it takes two trips.
PAY THE BEST PRICE
Prices of properties sold are not publicly available in France and outsiders cannot know the true market value of a property. Why are properties in one village more expensive than another? Why is one quartier of Nice or Marseille so much more in demand than another?
We pre-screen properties for you and find out how long they have been on the market; why the owners are selling; whether any offers have been received already. We also have the local market information and experience to help you determine the correct price.
BUY IN THE RIGHT LOCATION
We know our region intimately, as we live and work here. From your first enquiry, we seek to understand the setting and environment that you’re looking for. We do not tell you what you should like, we make sure we understand what you want.
Factors that are important to you such as transport connections, schools, restaurants, shops, landscape, climate and quality of local life all will be taken into account to steer you towards the best selection of properties in the best location.
Buying a property abroad carries with it a new set of challenges. The French Property Finders are by your side throughout the entire search and acquisition process, and beyond. We also are happy to recommend the best dual-qualified lawyers, mortgage and currency brokers and financial advisers to ensure that you structure your purchase as efficiently as possible.
Once you own your home in France, we help you set up the utility and phone contracts. Your search agent remains your local contact after the sale, sharing with you the contact details of caretakers, gardeners, architects and builders.
