How ARB French Property Works for Buyers

If you cannot find your ideal property in our current listings, do not worry as we are taking on new property instructions all the time. Simply provide us with a detailed specification of your ideal property, the more you can give us the easier our task and we will do the rest to try to find you your ideal home.

Please complete our contact form detailing your requirements, including desired style, old or new, location, land size, bedrooms and budget. We will then contact you shortly after to discuss any suitable homes we have listed. We also work with a select number of agents and notaires giving us access to thousands of additional homes that will help us to find the home you are after. Contact us for more details and costs.

Find a Property through ARB and benefit from the following :-

Great Value
Buyers with ARB get great value. Our fixed advertising fees are paid by the seller, who you view, deal and negotiate with directly. All our sellers are English speaking so no language worries.

Register with us
It costs nothing to register with us and once you are on board, we can answer questions about the process of buying and even provide extra details we hold from some owners such as map references and street views. That may help save you time by avoiding visits to unsuitable properties or regions.

Pre-booked Viewings
Make the most of each visit to France – Viewings confirmed by the owners with directions, map & Sat Nav refs plus local contacts, giving the precise locations of each home, letting you map your journey and maximise your time at each property.

Notaires
Once you have found your new home and you have agreed a price with the owner, we can put you in contact with an English speaking notaire to draw up the compromis de vente (sales contract) and oversee the purchase. If you or the seller wish, we can also provide details of translators. They will be able to accompany you on visits to the notaire and help you from start to finish. Remember, that it is you as the buyer, that pays the notaire fees that will include any purchase tax (stamp duty).

Currency Broker and Removals
Save money when you change your sterling to euros, we will be happy to put you in contact with a reputable, long established broker to ensure you get the best rate of exchange possible. We can help you save more money with our very competitive recommended removals and storage company.

Property Search & Agency Sales
As well as sales direct with the vendor, we work with a select number of registered agents and notaires throughout France. This means, we are able to offer stock in all the popular regions. Can’t Find Your Dream home? – If your dream home is not listed on our site, then our property search service may be for you. By working with hand picked agencies across France, we have access to hundreds more homes for sale. We also have access to channels not easily used by most English speaking buyers such as notaires. Let us do the searching. Contact us for more details and costs.
