FAQ

Everything you need to know when you use our website to advertise your property.

CAN I SELL MY PROPERTY PRIVATELY?

Yes, we are a property portal business marketing your property on a large number of sites.  We advertise your property professionally and can provide you with contacts and assistance that may help in the process of selling or buying a property.

DO YOU CHARGE A COMMISSION FEE?

No, we do not charge any commission.  There is a small initial fee to list your property on our site and we then list it on other sites to maximise your exposure.  You do not pay us any other fee during or if you are successful with a sale.  This can save many thousands of euros enabling you as the seller to reduce your price giving you a much better chance of attracting more buyers.

DO YOU VISIT THE PROPERTY?

No, we do not need to visit your property as we are not an estate agent or offering an estate agency service.

 WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?

We have a range of fees that offer flexibility for the seller starting from as little as £59.  We also offer an ‘A VENDRE’ board for you to display on your property if you wish.  This gives your property even greater exposure.

WHERE DO YOU ADVERTISING MY PROPERTY?

Depending on which advertising package you decide upon we list your property on a large number of high ranking property portals.  We market your property for buyers in the UK and France, and offer with our premium package the opportunity for you to advertise your property attracting interest from countries such as America, Australia, Canada, Russia, Germany and Holland to name but a few, as we know that it is very important that as a private seller we maximise your property exposure by using a large number of high ranking websites that attract world wide interest.

WHY IS MY PROPERTY NOT ON RIGHTMOVE?

In 2015 Rightmove changed their policy “We are no longer accepting companies who are simply re-selling our services. If you wish to continue advertising with us you need to provide at least three Estate Agency services, by offering these services you will be classified as an Estate Agent and therefore will be able to continue advertising.” for companies using their website mandatory requirements are to  provide Either Viewings or Valuations services (as part of both services properties need to be visited by you (the company), a partner agent or subcontracted company). Private Property Sellers Ltd is not an estate agent, and as a marketing company we are not in a legal position to carryout a valuation service on French property, and would be in breach of Rightmoves policy.

IS THERE A LIMIT WITH THE TEXT AND NUMBER OF PICTURES I CAN ADD TO YOUR WEBSITE?

We have no limit on text detail and various packages provide the option for a different number of pictures. We require pictures sized to 640 x 480 and when adding please upload and save individually by selecting the ‘save’ green button, this makes the adding of details easier as may produce an error message when large numbers are uploaded in one batch. Good detail about your property and local area and services are always helpful for a buyer.

You can also add a link to a website of your property if you have one on Private Property Sellers Ltd. This may not be available on external listing websites.

You are required by French Law to display your energy rating on all property listings therefore we are unable to publish on our site any adverts that do not display this. If your property doesn’t have the diagnostic information we are unable to list your property on French websites or in publications, this may result in limited exposure as we unable to extend your advertising if these details are added at a later date.

HOW DO I LIST MY PROPERTY ON YOUR SITE?

There are two ways you can do this;

1.  Through our website, you need to create an account, click on the green button ‘Advertise Property’ on the right hand top corner of the home page, this will then take you to the registration page to create an account, select your advertising package, pay, add your property details, with unlimited text and pictures, your advert will be live  once you publish it and as soon as you are happy with it.  You are also able to edit your text and pictures anytime within your advertising period.  Please note when adding picture we recommend adding and saving each one.

2.  Forward your advert details to us at info@privatepropertysellers.com and we can create your listing at no extra cost.  Again if during its advertising period you wish to make any changes we can do that for you.  Your advert is normally live within 24-48 hours of all details being received.

We will then list your property on other portals normally within 48 hours of your advert going live on our site.

HOW DO I RECEIVE ENQUIRIES?

From our website you will receive enquiries direct from any potential buyer.  All other enquiries we receive regarding your listing will either be directed to your listing details/contact on our website, or the request for information will be forward to you to make direct contact with the potential buyer.

DO YOU CHECK LEADS?

We have leads checked by us and also by the sites we use to list your property.  We always recommend you treat every enquiry with an element of caution.

CAN I CHANGE DETAILS ON MY PROPERTY PROFILE ONCE LIVE?

We will change your lead property picture and price free of charge during your advertising.

If you have created your own advert, you can make changes at anytime during your advertising period. However, as we need to make changes across all the websites we may charge a fee of £10 per hour depending on the amount of information required to be changed, for example if you require all your photos changing we will charge for this, we will not charge for small amendments to the advert text.

HOW CAN YOU HELP SELL MY PROPERTY?

Advertising with us provides a  marketing package for your property on a range of sites to maximise its a exposure to potential buyers from anywhere in the world. We can put you in contact with a number of professional services in relation to legal services required, translation or even just answer any questions you may have about selling your house and if we can’t do that I’m sure we know somebody who can.

HOW DO I KNOW PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT MY PROPERTY ON THE WEBSITE?

We can provide on request statistics from some of the external portals we use.  If you require data for your property on the external sites please contact us direct.

WILL YOU MAKE A YOU-TUBE VIDEO OF MY PROPERTY?

We will where possible create a you-tube video of your property from a selection of the photos you have supplied or added to the website.  As not all photos are suitable to use in a video, due to size, quality or content we can not always guarantee a video will be provided..

WHAT DO WE DO IF WE HAVE AN OFFER FROM A BUYER?

We can put you in touch with French Notaires, translation or legal services, and are happy to offer guidance through your sale.

WILL I SELL MY PROPERTY VIA YOUR ADVERTING?

Our marketing is achieving sales for a large number of our clients, as we provide your property with some of the best global exposure.  With both positive feedback from sellers and buyers, the option of a private purchase is increasing in demand. One of the most important aspect when marketing privately is the price, if you’re advertising with an estate agent, there is no point in advertising privately at the same price as the agent listing as buyers will be seeing the same property price. Make sure you are advertising at the correct value for the market, it’s not necessarily about what it cost to buy and renovate.  The agent may tell you the price you want to hear to get you to advertise with their company,  but that may not be the correct valuation, but slow or no interest means you’ll be reducing it. If you need to see what value property is selling for in your area contact us for details.  Also good picture, detailed description, but not too long, key points and highlight features.

If your property is in a good location to display an ‘A Vendre’ board this can also attract interest related to your listing on our website.

We can’t guarantee a response, and would be cautious of anyone who makes these sorts of guarantees for your listing, but we can guarantee that listing your property with us will put it in front of a huge market of potential buyers from anywhere in the world so hopefully as it only needs one person, that person is out there waiting to see your property!
