Sifex Boutique is designed to appeal to buyers who are sufficiently confident to look for their properties in France without the assistance of an estate agent. It is also designed for vendors to display their properties to their best advantage. Sellers can create, access and update their property listing 24/7. Estate Agents not wishing to use an intermediary may also benefit from advertising their properties on Sifex Boutique.
Sifex Boutique is not an Estate agent and does not charge commission. The site is primarily a platform for private vendors advertising properties for sale in France, and agents who do not wish to work through an intermediary may also advertise. To receive additional information about properties or arrange a viewing of properties listed on the Sifex Boutique website, you should contact the seller or agent directly using the form which is displayed if you click on the 'envelope' icon on the full property details pages.
