VINGT Paris also acts as a property acquisition specialist: also known as a buyer’s agent. This particular service sees us working on behalf of the buyer specifically (as opposed to the seller) conducting property searches, advising and evaluating and fully negotiating the purchase of property.
So, why do you need a buyer’s agent? When it comes to buying in another country, local knowledge and trustworthy advice is paramount. To assist you in navigating the intricacies of the French property market, we have our own massive network of Paris property sources from the French and international community, which we have built up steadily since 2003. Due to our extensive contacts with the best Real Estate partners in Paris we give you access to a broad range of the best property on the market at the given moment of your search.
With VINGT Paris on your side you will access the real market of properties – not just the properties targeted at international buyers. We will negotiate on your behalf and we are in the best position to advise you on what represents a ‘sensible’ value due to our up-to-the-minute knowledge of Paris. We live and breathe Paris real estate!
We look out for your interests and make sure the correct legal procedures are followed every step of the way. As France is a famously administration-heavy country with different business practices, long term support right through until closing (and beyond) from VINGT Paris will ensure that things run smoothly.
Once formally instructed – we will ask you to sign a mandate de recherche – we get down to the all- important search process. Unfortunately for the buyer, in Paris there is no market-wide database of properties for sale (like the multiple listing system in the USA) and your perfect apartment in the Marais might well be listed with an estate agency on the Left Bank!
Our reputation with Parisian estate agents and other property sources ensures that we leave no stone unturned in finding you that property with the wow factor. We are constantly in contact with our networks, and are alerted immediately when suitable property comes on the market, often before it goes on sale publicly. We utilise all available sources: Internet, private sale listings, trade journals and word of mouth.
We aim to save you time and hassle and you’ll visit only those properties that really match your requirements. We’re conscious we need to maximise your time, and will show you only properties we’ve cherry-picked which truly fit your requirements. At this stage we also provide a detailed analysis of price relative to market valuations, property taxes and monthly charges.
Our fee for this service, is success based and only due when we obtain the property you desire and the final closing takes place.
