French Property for Sale with Sifex
Will allow you to search based on minimum or maximum known criteria - the Search Site facility on the Home page will help you.
Enables you to select properties by region or department, price range, number of bedrooms and hectares as well as condition and situation. ‘Special features' fields allow you to select one or two from a list, for instance with a pool, sea view, tennis court, outbuildings, stables etc.
Sharing your criteria with us ensures that we can tailor a property search specifically to suit your requirements.
Our Confidential Portfolio:
Properties that do not appear on the website but which we are able to send out if they match a registered applicant’s criteria, provided we have the necessary information as to your requirements in the first place.
Sifex has an extensive network of partner agents in France and we only work with licensed French agents or 'immobiliers' who hold a 'carte professionelle'.
We operate on a shared commission basis with the agents, therefore using the services provided by Sifex incurs no additional costs for the purchaser.
Our appointments system:
We will make appointments and create itineraries on your behalf.
We will ensure that the proposed schedule is realistic given the distances between properties.
We do our very best to avoid the frustrations of wasted trips to unsuitable properties, and share information on any ‘blights’ that may exist where we are aware of them.
We are able to offer an unbiased overview of what is available, give you advice on the buying process, suggest which areas are most likely to satisfy your requirements, as well as arranging viewing trips with a number of different agencies in France - all at no extra cost.
Your contact details must be current at time of booking appointments and viewings.
Your personal information will remain confidential between Sifex and our colleagues in France.
French estate agents are very reluctant to reveal the precise location of properties. Revealing Google Earth coordinates is also unusual.
You may be required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement (or ‘Engagement de Confidentialite) for disclosure of property address, this is fairly standard so do not be alarmed.
By providing your full criteria we can often get an indication of where the property is, if we are able to supply this to the agents.
