Planning Your French 'Escape'?

My-French-House is a fully independent family ran business, we believe that buying your french property should be a straight forward affair. It's for this reason that Patrick JOSEPH and his team work hard to provide a service that makes finding your dream house in France as easy as possible.  We understand these life changing family decisions require perfect timing; and with Covid around, it's never been more important to have expert advice and friendly guidance on your side, backed by English support.

No Hidden Costs

Every property on our website is listed at the same price as it is in France. There’s nothing extra to pay for the service that we offer. We have partnership arrangements with our network of experienced local bilingual agents, many of which we have been working with since day one, back in 2004 and are more than estate agents or network, they are like family to us.

Step by Step in Plain English

We've put together this extensive French property buying guide to explain the purchasing process, in plain and simple english. We think it’s one of the most comprehensive guides to buying a French property on the internet. You’ll find lots of tips and advice to help you with your search, organise viewings, a make your selection and get through the whole buying process, step by step.

Discovering your Criteria

Our local bilingual agents are waiting to show you round the best properties that suit your criteria. All you need to do is let us know the properties you want to visit, the date along with your detailed search criteria, we’ll do the rest. Unless you are after a special property, and location, because you know exactly what you are looking and want to get on with life? 

Planning your Viewings

Property viewing is exciting but can become expensive and time consuming if not organised efficiently, especially as travel opportunities may be limited as we come out of the pandemic. We’ll ensure that your viewing schedule makes the most of your visit and enables you to see a number of properties during your trip while staying safe during these exceptional times.

Putting your Offer Forward

When it comes to making an offer, this can be difficult if you don't speak French and don't understand the rules. This is where we and our agents and experts really come in our own; we’ll make your offer to the vendor and we’ll get the ball rolling for you.

How Much is the Deposit?

There's no deposit to pay until the compulsory searches have been completed and the 10 day cooling off period has expired, after you signed the compromis de vente. Only at this stage will you be asked (by the notaire) to pay the deposit, usually 10% of the total purchase amount, direct to him, inclusive of all legal fees and received in their escroc account in euros.

Concluding a Smooth Purchase

Once your offer has been accepted, you will accompanied through the process by the team and our estate agents in France. This means that you’ll be clear every step of the way until you can say, "I am now the happy owner of my own French House'...
