From an abandoned Château with everything to do, to a cute one-up-one-down that’s ready to move into, everybody’s dream home in France is unique.
Whatever you’re looking for, we’ll help you find it.
When you’re looking for a new home, it’s not just a question of how many bedrooms you need, but all the other things that make life meaningful. For example, do you see yourself in a village with neighbours you can get to know? Or somewhere more isolated and private, perhaps with land? It’s these little details that make the difference between a house and a home.
We’re here to guide you through the purchasing process and make sure you’re perfectly set for your new life in France.
Find your dream home in France.
WHY CHOOSE US?
It’s one thing combing through French property websites from a distance, and quite another being here on the ground and first to hear of new properties arriving on the market.
That’s what makes French Connections HCB the perfect partner in looking for your dream home.
We search for properties that match your criteria and help you navigate the contracts, condition reports and financing arrangements, all of which have to be done in French. We also offer advice on negotiating to help secure your future home in France for a significantly lower price.
The French property market is notoriously private. We have access to many properties that never make it to public listings.
All legal documentation is in French with specific terminology. Our bilingual team makes sure you fully understand every step of the process.
We offer a complimentary 2-hour consultation with our financial advisor and a free 3D graphic re-design of any one room in your new home.
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
We start with a free consultation, where you can tell us the type of home you are looking for.
We begin the property search, keeping you updated regularly.
We send regular reports of places we think you’ll love, with translations of the property details.
When you see a property you like, we set up an appointment for you to inspect the property. If language is a problem, we can help via video telephone link. We can also accompany you in person or visit on your behalf, but this incurs an extra fee.
Negotiations & admin
If you decide to buy, we advise on negotiations, arrange a condition report and handle all the administrative detail and notarial paperwork for you. We can also help you to open a French bank account or arrange financing.
When should I contact you?
It’s never too soon to start the conversation. Our initial consultation is free, so if buying in France is your goal, just book a no-obligation online appointment.
Do you also help with property rentals?
Yes. Our rental service includes searching for suitable properties and building your financial profile so you are more likely to be accepted as a tenant.
How much does it cost?
We ask for a 50% holding deposit of 2250€ to begin the search. The end balance is only due once you have successfully secured your new home in France.
We recently decided to buy a second home here so I sought Richard’s help in finding a suitable property and negotiating a favourable sale price. I am absolutely delighted with the result. I would not hesitate in recommending this company: with French Connections HCB you are in safe, experienced hands.
