Estate agents even in the larger networks have limited portfolios, as the market is so splintered in France with over 2000 agents across the French Riviera. The same true for property portals, despite the race to attract the largest number of properties from estate agents and private sellers, there are hundreds of portals covering the market.
Then when you do find properties on portals, the limited photos and missing information on location or floor plans, means having to hunt down this information with each agency. This leaves buyers the dilemma of either having to search for months or accept they will just go for whatever they can find.
That was the situation until recently.

Now as our initial search is free, and so is the ongoing search via a search mandate assuming you buy through an agency, why would any buyer continue to do a search without the help of a property finder ?
The answer in most cases is that buyers are simply not aware that a property finder like Smarfinder Home exist or how they work. Check our FAQ section and try us out with the search form ?
Like the advent of mobile phones, after you will wonder how you would have managed your search without the help of a property finder, especially when you are not living locally in the area.
