Hello there. Sorry to bother you...
My name is Mike and - this is a shot in the dark - I was wondering if you could help with a feature I'm writing for the Telegraph about how to sell a house in France?
I need expats to give me quotes to help colour the piece, and at the moment I'm trying to speak to any or all of the following...
* Someone who has returned to the UK, and found selling in France to be rather difficult.
* Someone who is trying to sell or has successfully sold their French home WITHOUT the use of an estate agent: The 'AV' route, if you will. It works better if they have a few stories to sell and the property has been/was on the market for at least a few months.
* Someone who is looking to buy a house in France, ideally with quite a decent budget (let's say upwards of 400,000 Euros) and has had some experience of being told that "the prices are rather flexible at the moment", reinforcing the idea that it's currently a buyer's market here in France.
If you can help, or think you might know of someone who can, please get back in touch or forward this email on.
