How to sell your property on the French Riviera?
Why should you rely on us on selling your property? And how will we sell your property?
There are more than a thousand real estate agencies on the Cote d’Azur. Each agency has its own methods, its rhythm and management directions to work on the French Riviera real estate market. We will not work with your property if we are certain that we will not be able to sell it. We will not waste your and our precious time, we will definitely advise you of the agency that deals with your real estate profile. In general, our international teamwork is dynamic and result-oriented; we use the modern technologies of sales and marketing.
We do not sit in the agency and expect the buyer to come to us. We are looking for the buyer, we go to reach him, we bring him to the Cote d'Azur. Most of our buyers from the ex-USSR countries: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the Baltic States and others. Our managers speak French, Russian, English and have more than 10 years experience in real estate.
First meeting and property valuation.
Our real estate experts will conduct a free appraisal of your property value. You will know all the strengths and weaknesses of your house. We will study and provide to you the cost per square meter in your area for the similar sales transactions carried out recently in that property market segment. Such professional expertise will contribute to the best presentation of your property for sale. Our experts will give the necessary advice and suggest to you improvements in raising the cost value of your property for sale. Sometimes it is just enough to make some repairs and spending several thousand euros, but thanks to it you can attract much more buyers and increase significantly the cost of the property.
Our professional photographer will make excellent photos of your property. To conduct such a photoshoot we have everything you need:
- Professional equipment,
- Mast and Tripod,
If you want to make a video, we can organize a photoshoot of your property using a drone.
After taking a picture, our designer will carefully process the photos for the best representation of your house. Of course, we will ask you to help us and carefully prepare the house for photo shooting. For the best presentation to the buyer, you should take into account all the details!
Price determination and sales mandate signing.
We determine and predict the property price taking into account the period of sale or how long you can sell your property. After the price is established, we sign so called a ‘sales mandate’ (mandat de vente). By doing this, you allow us to sell your property at the price you confirmed and in case of sale you pay a fee for our work. When selling property in France, the agent’s commission (5 to 10 per cent of the sale price) is usually paid by the vendor included in the purchase price.
Our agency’s commission is 5% without VAT of the sale price. We do not take an additional interest from the buyer, all payments go through the notary and the whole procedure is pure and open. In case when other agency, which represents the buyer, applies to us, we divide our fee without requesting an additional fee.
