and David Markman told us how they left England to live the
dream in France…..
first thought about selling the flat privately in January and we
had no reservations about going it alone, without an agent, as
we had friends who had sold their house in Uxbridge using
HouseWeb and told us how successful it was.
have had property in France for 18 years, but ten years ago we
bought a farmhouse which we wanted to make our permanent home. I
am 69 and my husband is 58 and disabled - in England we lived in
a 1st floor flat so, we decided now was the time to
live our dream in France and move to the farmhouse. So we sold
the flat in England with HouseWeb’s help and now live in a
three bedroomed house with a large garden and swimming pool
which costs us less than living in England.
didn’t bother getting a valuation from an estate agent, as it
was very easy to value the flat ourselves, being guided by the
price of other flats in our block. It was certainly less
stressful than using an estate agent and we were sold within a
week, saving about £2,555 in estate agents fees! I found it
very easy to put the advert together and we had many enquiries
through the site but sold to the first couple who viewed as they
were first time buyers and made an offer which we accepted.
advice to anyone selling a property would be try HouseWeb first,
present it well, clean and uncluttered and stress the good
points of the situation i.e. good shops, transport connections
