Selling your home in France
So why should you choose Agence NEWTON to market your property?
Quite simply, we work differently to most French agents?
Unlike normal French agencies, Agence NEWTON doesn't just take everything on, property wise. We prefer to select the properties to market based on the demands of our clients.
Also, we like to work similar to the English system, in the sense that we prepare full files for each property to send to each client. We don’t believe in the French agent’s technique of giving a “taster” of a property with 3-4 photos and a 3-4 lines description from which the client decides whether to visit a property or not. This leads to lots of wasted visits as well as possible buyers being disheartened.
Agence NEWTON works with several agents in the UK, and despite what the local agencies are saying, there are still British buyers, usually with reasonable budgets too, as well as the French market looking for character properties.
Agence NEWTON is very much an internet based agency and so use a website with all the latest real estate technology, one of the main advantages of this is the individual referencing of each property as well as purchasers are able to get full spec files on each property on the site, 24/7.
The properties we deal in, in general, are properties with traditional character, but we don’t limit ourselves to any particular price bracket or style, but the place has to feel right.
Also, Agence NEWTON is one of the few French based agencies to advertise
all our properties on the major UK based property portals, Rightmove and Zoopla.
As well as a multitude of other sites, check our portals page for more info.
This is why if you trust Agence NEWTON with marketing your property, we will prepare a complete presentation file (admittedly due to legal obligations, not quite up to UK spec, but a lot more than normal French agencies) with large choice of semi-professional photo’s inside & out, to show your property at its best, full description with room sizes, distance to shops, coast, building specs, land registry plan, etc. In order to let the potential clients really know what they are looking at.
What’s more we don't believe in visiting properties with clients just to make the vendors believe that we are «looking after them», we spend time with each potential buyer, to really target their needs, before going out to see any properties. With a complete file on each property, we can really explain the property before hand, thus we do not waste the vendor’s or the purchasers time showing properties which are unsuitable.
If you wish Agence NEWTON to take care of the marketing of your property, all the services are free, including the initial visit, evaluation, measurements and photo shoot.Agence NEWTON work on a “no sale, no fee basis”, these fees are charged to the purchaser, as per French practice, and are only paid at the final signing at the notary’s.
