How to SELL YOUR HOUSE FOR FREE........

Some money saving tips from an unlikely source

 “Did you know you can save yourself hundreds of euros in marketing fees and possibly thousands of euros on ‘successful advertising’ or selling fees just by using an estate agent?”

says Catherine Dannreuther, owner and manager of the Euro Immobilier Chalais estate agency.

 And she is right, a quick glance at the table below and you can see what Catherine means.

 “The main expense when selling your house yourself is going to be marketing costs” she explains. “By using a fully registered estate agency like Euro Immobilier Chalais, you benefit from extensive international marketing on numerous major property websites, as well as our own sites, for FREE”.

 “I would love to charge you for it – but I’m not allowed”. Agences Immobilières are regulated by the government and are subject to strict guidelines on how they operate; charging for advertising is not permitted.

 “Our properties for sale are seen on the internet all over the world, and in 2010 we achieved over  3.5 million page hits on the internet. For 2011 we have launched a new website www.tcpf.com which is already getting rave reviews.”

 When choosing how to sell your house there are three main options: You can choose a dynamic, fully licensed Agence Immobilière like Euro Immobilier Chalais;  try selling it yourself, or  you can use an unregulated property marketing company. 

 “We have over 25 years experience at Euro Immobilier Chalais and offer free advice on pricing and presentation of your property, plus a free personal bilingual service from start to finish”.
