About Private Property Sellers Ltd, Manchester

Private Property Sellers in an online property marketing business run by Anne Stapleton.

The aim of my website is to provide excellent value marketing for the private seller on sites that as an individual you may have limited access or pay high fees to list your property. From feedback whilst working as an agent commercial sellers found that adding high agent fees often made their property appear over priced,with the potential of limiting buyer interest. My belief is that as a private seller you have greater knowledge of your property, the local area and you are best placed to offer this information to a potential buyer.

Buyers will find that all the property’s listed on my website do not have estate agent fees to pay and are available for sale direct from the owner. This can result in a large saving of many thousands. A Notaire is a legal requirement when buying or selling French property and generally this is a straightforward process. If you feel you would like further assistance with a purchase, from a document translated
or any other assistance, contacts can be provided.

I want to offer the best value online marketing service for both the buyer and seller. As the future of marketing property is evolving and more and more people research property online this enables a response to enquiries at anytime, not just office hours or week days, monitoring incoming mail and forwarding information 24/7 so you don’t miss out on a potential buyer. Being proactive in marketing is important, using social media platforms to market property and constantly moving with demand, exposing property to as many potential worldwide buyers as possible is essential in working to achieve a sale.

With the business based in France and from a wealth of experience gained from working as an agent commercial
I can offer a wide range of information and contacts for both the buyer and seller. From finding a Notaire, translation and legal services, opening a bank account, builders, where to go for health information as well as schools, business set up...all this knowledge has been gained through living in France since 2002, with most things being immersed in the system provides a greater understanding and appreciation of what is really happening.

If you are a buyer looking for French property and find a property for sale with an estate agent, check Private Property Sellers website before making contact as
you may find the same property for sale privately and have the potential of saving yourself thousands...

Dedicated to working for the private seller offering best value marketing.
