Direct property sale without estate agents
OK, so you’ve decided you want to sell your property in France without an agent. You’re absolutely right!
Selling a house in France without an estate agent gives you the chance to reduce your cost of sale by up to 7% estate agent’s commission. Even if you’re told that the agency fees are payable by the buyer, that reduces the funds available for the purchase, and makes negotiation more difficult. Not only that, if you don’t have to add agency commission into the price given on your advertisement, you can ask a lower price. This obviously gives you a better chance of finding a buyer.
Yes, selling without an agent means more work for you, and you’ll be negotiating on the price yourself, but even a small percentage of a property transaction represents thousands of euros, a nice bonus for you when you sell your french property direct.
