Premium adverts benefit from the following features:
Highlighted advert: Premium adverts are highlighted blue in our search engine to give them greater prominence.
Dual listing: Premium adverts are listed twice in our search engine. They have a standard search listing and a preferential listing at the top of the search results pages. Please see our private advertiser help guide for more information.
Images: Premium adverts allow for unlimited images. Images are important when advertising property online, they add significant value to your advert and help to attract serious enquiries.
Free Translations: Premium adverts include a free advert translation from French to English.
Private vendors are not entering into an exclusive agreement. An advert on French-property.com will not prevent you from advertising the property for sale elsewhere.
The advert is essentially an online version of a newspaper classified advert. All enquiries made about your property will be sent directly to your email address. All enquiries are stored on your account and are accessible online. All subsequent correspondence, including organising bookings / viewing needs to be organised by yourself. For more information please consult our help pages.
Our private sales advertising packages are our most successful advertising packages. Privately advertised properties account for over 20% of our total enquiries. Unfortunately we do not have actual statistics on the number of sales that result from our advertising as we are not involved in the sales process. Please see our company statistics and testimonials for more information.
Featured adverts displayed on the homepage and on other high traffic areas of the website are promoted through the use of SpotClicks. When you purchase a number of SpotClicks, they are assigned to your featured advert and it is included in a random rotation on the homepage and other pages of the website.
Visitors can click directly on the advert and will be redirected to your full online advert. This action will deduct one click from your account and your featured advert will expire when all the purchased clicks on your account have been used up. Clicks are only used when the property is accessed by a visitor, not when the advert is displayed.
Spotclicks are a product used to increase the exposure of property adverts on the website. Featured adverts displayed on the homepage and on other high traffic areas of the website are promoted through the use of SpotClicks. When you purchase a number of SpotClicks, they are assigned to your featured advert and it is included in a random rotation on the homepage and other pages of the website.
Your advert will also appear as a Featured property in our search engine, therefore it will have a double listing in our search engine with a blue background for greater prominence.
It is possible to advertise your property for sale as a banner advert on our website.
If you do not have the suitable banner, we can create a banner on your behalf. To do this we will need 3-5 high quality images of your property.
This product differs from our Standard, Premium, Exhibition and SpotClicks products. For more information and our prices please see our banner advertising page.
Each year we host the French Village in London (March/April) and Birmingham (Sept/Oct) at A Place in the Sun Live. We accept adverts in the three months prior to the exhibition.

For more information please see our French private sales page. We are only able to translate from French to English or vice-versa.
You may include an external web address in your advert description. Unfortunately, it will not appear as a clickable link as our system does not allow for the inclusion of hyperlinks.
DPE survey data is required for all adverts hosted within France. As French-Property.com is based in the UK, we have been informed by the French authorities that our advertisers do not have to include this information. However, all vendors have to undertake full diagnostic surveys before selling which includes Diagnostic de Performance Energétique - DPE so we recommend that you include this on the advert for completeness. For more information about statutory surveys please see our French property survey guide.
We take every possible measure to prevent illegitimate enquiries, however, we are unable to block them entirely. There are a number of measures you can take to protect yourself when advertising on any website.
We recommend not displaying your phone number or any other personal details in the content of your advert.
All online enquiries are sent via email so the enquirer does not have access to any personal information until you disclose this through correspondence. Therefore, it is always necessary to be vigilant before sending any replies.
We would also recommend that you create a new free email address specifically for the sale of your house. This will prevent your personal email address from being disclosed.
For a complete guide on how to protect yourself when advertising on French-Property.com please see our private advertiser help guide.
