How did I get involved in French property? Very simply, we have a property that is on the market. French estate agents have a reputation shall we say, for not being awfully proactive. Our property made it to the windows of sever local agents, there were a few seemingly random viewings and that was it. Being a fairly hands on kind of a person it got me questioning what I could do to boost things along? 

I'm not an estate agent by training, I grew up with an architect for a Dad so I have a 'programmed' appreciation for buildings, homes, design. I decided that the thing I could do immediately was set up a Facebook group for people wishing to sell their homes privately in France. By cutting out the agents buyers can save themselves tens of thousands of Euros. Hence Sun Homes was born. I wasn't the first to have this idea, there are other groups but they tend to see properties posted and disappear down the feed with no extra promotion or discussion on the group.

We now have almost 800 members. I have created an interactive Google map to post each property, links to websites etc. We have active buyers on the group, last week we witnessed a viewing being arranged, not the first by any means. 

Last year I set up a Twitter account @HomesSun, this is now growing nicely and appearing in the Twitter lists of French Estate Agents… Next steps, setting up a website to allow easier searches for property and an expansion of my Social Media work into platforms such as Instagram and Pintrest..

Do come and join us!
