Welcome to Allez-Français properties - the best in South West France
Welcome to Allez-Français – leading property specialists for South West France since 2002.
Houses for sale in Poitou Charentes, (principally Deux Sevres, Charente & Vienne). Houses for sale in Dordogne & the Dordogne Valley, (Dordogne, Lot & Corrèze).
Houses for sale in Gascony, (Gers and Tarn & Garonne departments). We have recently added more areas such as the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.
We hope that you like our website. Visitors have commented favourably upon our ease of use and modern design.
You can now search by map as well as the traditional listing, and this will facilitate the task for anyone looking for a specific location.
Most of our team have lived in the area for over 10 years. We provide the highest standard of professional service, working with you to find a dream home in France. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, we will offer a better experience than most agents, with a focus on quality photographs & accurate descriptions.
A small business, but big on initiative & ideas.
One of the main differences between buying a house in the UK and France, is that the 'contract' between buyer and seller, is signed at a much earlier stage in the process. The buyer also gets the benefit of a 10 day cooling off period.
All of our contracts are drafted by a Notaire - never by us as agents. We have seen too many examples of poorly drafted 'Compromis de Vente' that have been lacking in detail prepared by French agencies. We also have the deposit paid directly to the Notaire.
We feel that these are important aspects not practiced by all agents, for the reassurance of our clients.
Allez-Français ... selling houses, not just marketing them.
Selling a property in France – agency or private ?
Most agencies advertise their houses to include agency fees, (Price FAI) – as we do at Allez-Francais.
One or two agents advertise the property fully inclusive of all fees, (including agency & notary fees). However, this can be overly complicated, as prices may include fixtures & fittings, which would normally be excluded from notary fees.
Agency fees do also vary, sometimes quite considerably. Typically between 6 to 8%, which means that a house with a price net of 250,000 could be advertised anywhere between 265,000 and 270,000.
The agency fees are set out in the mandat which all agents have to have in order to market the property legally. The terms of the mandat will specify who pays the fees, either the vendor or the buyer, but in reality, because almost all properties are advertised to include the agency fees, it is effectively the buyer who pays.
There are a number of websites encouraging people to try and sell properties privately in France. On the face of it, this saves on agency fees and that money seems better off in the buyer's pocket than that of an agent.
However, not only can sales be slow, this can also be a huge mistake with legal and complicated repercussions. For example, items that should be listed in the Compromis de Vente (CDV) can be easily overlooked, and come completion day, the buyers are cursing their course of action as they haven’t got everything that they expected ... or worse.
On average, Allez-Francais fees are always highly competitive and we also offer the option of an exclusive mandat - which is of particular interest to any owners hoping for a quicker sale.
