What is a French property finder?


french-property-finderA property finder in France is a real estate specialist. He exclusively works for and protects your interests as a buyer. Depending on his status and the missions he chooses to accomplish, the minimum he undertakes is the property search. This means that he will work until he finds your ideal property in France. He can also offer additional support. This includes support through the legal process, starting from the negotiation of the price of the transaction to all the way to the signature of the deed of sale. A property finder can manage the legal section of the purchase for you. In our case, you can entrust us with the complete realisation of your project thanks to our full support package. We only work on behalf of foreign buyers with a project to find and buy a property in France.  In addition, we protect your interests against the real estate agent who will only defend those of the seller.

Contrary to popular belief, few real estate agents in France care about the buyers’ interests. Indeed, they sign a sales mandate with the sellers. A percentage of the sale price (between 5 and 10%) is their remuneration for this service. Helping the buyer to buy at a lower price than requested by the seller does not make any sense for them. By acting like this, they would negatively impact their commission.
