Property search in Narbonne5 Replies
My wife and I are due to spend the whole next week in or near Narbonne looking for an appartment as close to the city centre as possible. We're not entirely new to the French property market, having owned a flat in Nice up until about three years ago. When we were last in Narbonne in December, we visited a number of estate agents on our final day and asked them to email us details of any flats that might meet our criteria. None of them sent us anything. A general enquiry on 'Les Cles du Midi' brought one reply with along with a number of adverts, but when I asked where the properties were (even just a specific area - I appreciate they don't give out addresses), the answer was a polite refusal. Does anyone have any idea how to communicate with the maximum number of agents without having to contact each of them directly? At a fee of 6%, I'd have expected them to be falling over themselves, but I'm getting nowhere and there's not much time left. At this rate, it looks like we'll trudging the streets next week and pressing our noses on all the windows we can find..
