Help and advice on Euro Resales Ltd.

21 Replies

My wife and I are trying to sell our house in Le Fleix. We have found an international property agent called Euro Resales Ltd. based in Folkstone, Kent. We have checked them out at Companies House and they are listed. They have been listed under this name for about 18 months.Before that they were trading for about 10 years under a different name. They have now shed part of their business to concentrate on house sales.For a flat fee of 500gbp they advertise your property in 7 countries, arrange inspection visits and pay all the legal fees. They also promise to keep sending prospective buyers until an acceptable offer is made. They have a facebook site with seemingly many happy clients.Mindful of the adage,"If it seems to good to be true, then it probably is", I was wondering if any one knows anything about this company. 500 gbp is too much to risk, but on the other hand, if they sell the house as quickly as they suggest they might, the it could be money well invested.We would welcome the collective wisdom, experience  and advice of the group.Thanks.Terry

We Listed with this 
company to help sell our villa in the Dordogne 8 months ago and found
this service very efficient. One of the team at the company were always on hand
for updates as and when we called and emailed them.

 

They advertised our property in over 100 countries around
the world we got leads from Russia, Germany, Scandinavia, England , Ireland and
Australia from them but it was a buyer from Russia who had the money ready and
waiting to pay close to our asking price.

 









Euro Resales we able to put me in touch with a very reliable
Notaire who handled all my legal work and contracts etc and transfer of
finances. I will try dig out a list of all the countries they had me advertised
in and post the links here if it allows me

PS just noticed the OP posted 4 months ago...

I simply copied and pasted the links they sent me to my email when i kicked up a fuss about wanting to see where they had me advertised when i initially listed with them. Had it saved in a word document on my desktop.

Hi

How long ago did you go with them James and how  much success have you had?


Orlando same question really did you decide to advertise with them and was it successful?

Would appreciate an answer from you both

Thanks

In the end there was something about  the language used in their advertising that made me suspicious.Repeated use of phrases like,"cash rich buyers" did nothing to inspire confidence in me. When I phoned them to talk about this ,I felt highly pressured to sign up.

We declined to use them in the end.

Cheers,

Try.

Hi Birdy I sold with them as my post above stated (Pasted below again) - Orlando the buyer they found us was cash rich as they had the funds ready to purchase our villa. From what i got from them cash rich means people who have money ready to purchase. The sale was completed under French law through our Notaire.

I would be wary of James Wilson's posts. Just as OG pointed out about the companythe language he uses is odd and repetitive and his personal details are unavailable.

James-Wilson-904110 1499757982

Hi - chèvrefeuille How is my copying and pasting what i wrote in the thread above repetitive and why would i give my personal contact details on a public forum this is what private messages are for.

chèvrefeuille 1499758598

If I click on most posters name I get through to their user details. These pages usually give no more than their name. Your page is unavailable. That makes me suspicious. I am also suspicious of Euro Resales and your oddly worded support of them. I am sharing my concerns. 

James-Wilson-904110 1499760095

Am i not allowed to show support for a company that helped me find a buyer inside 8 months after 4 years of trying to sell with a few local agents? When i was googling them to leave a review for the help on the sale this forum was on page one. so i thought i would leave my comments for the gentleman above. I have used this company to find buyers my villa and now have also placed my leaseback with them in Paris.

Of course you are, just as I'm allowed to voice my suspicions. You've done a great job. The OP had no replies for four months then your input five days ago sparked all this interest. Mind you I find that pretty suspicious too. 

James-Wilson-904110 1499763041

Like I said I was looking to leave a review for my recent
sale with this company and while googling them to leave reviews this website /forum was on page one. Nothing suspicious there I am simply sharing my opinion as I have
used the service and will continue to do so for my other properties. 

tykesinfrance-328137 1499776749

I am suspicious too. 8 months is a long time to wait before posting a review for anything.


Birdy-116630 1499780645

I think it depends how you read things, the reference to 8 months is'nt the time he waited to review the service its the time they took to sell his property and he clearly says this (twice).It is normal to write the review after you have had the full service.

In the grand scheme of things 500 pounds is not a fortune when you consider local estate agents will be getting approximately  18,000 euros to sell our property and I am not overly impressed with their efforts so far.

Our sale completed last month June 2017 -  i advertised with the company for 8 months i hope this is clearer for the people who seem to be confused. I have this week listed my leaseback apartment in Paris with them. If and when that is sold i also have an apartment in the French Riviera which i will also put on the market with them.

he is simply advertising but in a subtle way and for free.

Josephine-Blogger-853338 1499866065

And meanwhile HMRC are still waiting for them to file their company accounts for which the filing deadline was March 2017....

James-Wilson-904110 1499866650

That means nothing i own my own company in the UK and you have to November each year to submit your year end accounts for the last tax year. HMRC give you 9 months to do this. Personally my accounts are always late due to my accountant being snowed under with year ends for many companies. Thankfully he has always got them in on time and i have yet to get a penalty

I think it's only fair to correct this erroneous statement. According to Companies House their first accounts will be made up to 28 Feb 2017 and are due to be filed by 16 Nov 2017 so they are not late. The poster should refrain from making such statements unless they know what they are taking about.

There is an oversue Confirmation Statement which is a minor legal statement and of little significance.
