We chose the bestest of times to try and sell......... just as the crash happened!
So in the end we left the house in France and moved back to the UK anyway and as we were not there and it was 1k miles between our homes, left it with Guy Hoquet who sold it.
Just calculated and they took just under 4% commision. As I said, I
negociated. Also the house was in good nick and I daresay that they
reduced the commission as they knew they could sell it fairly quickly as
opposed to some houses which would take an age.
So, ALBF, at some point one has to be practical. Ours was a french built home, in a french village, we really were the only brits there and it was bought by a french couple.
