Re-sale through Sextant French properties: an excellent investment exit strategy

Since their inception in the 70’s, French leasebacks have proven a very popular choice for the discerning investor, simplicity, easy, hassle free being synonymous descriptions. Recently, many of these early investors are opting to ‘cash in’ their leaseback nest eggs, and capitalise on the steady resale market. If you are wishing to sell your property, you can mandate Sextant French properties to find a buyer, at any time after the start of the commercial lease.

Your advantages if you decide to sell

Finding the right estate agent to manage and handle the sale is the first step in the process for owners. Here at Sextant, we are the only UK-based estate agency to hold a ‘carte professionnelle’ which means: we can legally handle the mandate of your French leaseback, and offer them directly to our investor network. Subsequently, we cut out costly commissions paid to French middle men and pass on this savings to our valued customers.
Our property professionals are the best placed for concluding the sale in optimal conditions:
