1.2. How do I use French-Property.com?

You can search for a French property on our site by using the search options at the top of the web page.

You can search by region, price range, property type and type of advertiser. We also have a keyword search function where you can find properties based on specific words that you enter.

Our advanced search option will let you locate properties based on specific attributes that they hold e.g. condition, electrical options, drainage etc.

If you obtain too many results try to narrow down your search by using keywords of drop down specifics.

When you find a French property you are interested in all you need to do is click on the "Enquire about this property" link on the advertisment and fill out the contact form with your questions or request a viewing of the property, this will send an email the vendor to let them know of your interest and they will get back to you as soon as possible.

1.3. How can I tell if a property is for sale?

All property advertisments on our site are properties for sale, we send out monthly emails to our agents and classified users to confirm that the property is still for sale, however, the property may be sold during this period and the agent/classified user may not have contacted us to state that the property has been sold, therefore, we suggest that you contact the agents/classified seller via our site for more information on this matter.

You can find out more details about the property you are interested in by clicking the "Enquire about this property" link on the property advertisment. By doing this you will send an email straight to the vendor and you can request more details on the property or perhaps arrange a viewing.

2.1. The vendor hasn't responded to my enquiry, what should I do?

Some users of the site do not check their email daily and as such we suggest waiting a week if you have not had a response to your enquiry. If you have not had a response after one week we would be happy to pass on any enquiries made to agents, just email: support@french-property.com

Unfortunately if the property is for sale by a private user we cannot provide any further details bar what has been made available in the advert itself.

2.2. How do I know a property and seller are legitimate?

  • Contact the vendor by telephone. This will give you an insight into their intentions and is more personal then contacting them by email.
  • Ask for references to previous property buyers
  • Conduct a secure payment, you should be cautious if the seller requests the money to be paid through a third party.

4.1. Can you arrange property viewings for me?

Unfortunately not. We provide the advertising space for the French agents and classified sellers, we do not get directly involved with the selling or buying of French property like an estate agent. If you would like to request a viewing of a property please send an enquiry to the vendor and I'm sure they will be happy to show you around their property.
