When selling your French property through an estate agent, you are offered a choice between simple, semi-exclusive or exclusive sales agreements.
The Exclusive sales agreement
This agreement can be signed with only one estate agent, giving them an exclusive right to sell your property. There is a fixed period attached to it, generally 3 months. The interesting part of this agreement is the following: as one and only agency has your property on its books, it will most of the time do its best in terms of advertising as well as introducing it in priority to its potential clients in order to sell it during the time of the exclusivity. It results in a better promotion of your property compare to non-exclusive sales agreements. The most important point is to choose carefully the estate agent you’re going to use and to market it at the right price.
