Selling property in Paris

Making the most out of your Paris sale

Is this a good time to sell?

Paris is a seller’s market, making any time a good time to sell. Over the past several decades, with some small variations, the trend has always been up. But you must balance current market trends with your personal goals. We are happy to discuss these with you you in more detail in order to advise you with your goals in mind.

Our customized marketing of your property, depending on your particular situation, focuses on obtaining the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time, despite the absence of a multiple listing service (MLS).

Isn’t it better to work with several agencies rather than just one?

No. You would think so, but it is actually counterproductive. When potential buyers see multiple ads running – often providing contradictory information and different prices – they incorrectly assume that the seller is pressed to sell, the property has a fatal flaw, or both. The property’s image is damaged by this overexposure.

Working with one agency offers several advantages. It provides the convenience of having only one interlocutor. Buyers are more attracted to exclusive listings because they know they will have clarity during negotiations. In addition, our unique approach of sharing listings offers you the streamlined marketing of an exclusive listing while benefiting from the wide exposure of a non-exclusive mandate.

What costs are associated with selling my property?

Sellers must have diagnostic tests performed, which normally cost around 500 €, depending on the size of the property.

The agency fees are included in the asking price of the property. They will be paid by the buyer or the seller depending on what is specified in the sales mandate.

In order to provide greater transparency of the structural and financial health of a property at the signature of the reservation contract and the closing, a number of additional statements are provided by the building management company. Their fees typically amount to approximately 900 € and are paid by the seller.

The buyer is responsible for paying the full amount of the ‘notarial fees’ (7-7.7% of the purchase price).

Capital gains tax is due on the sale of a secondary residence. The amount varies depending on the value of the property and the length of ownership.

The sale of a primary residence is currently not subject to capital gains tax. Please find our latest info on capital gains here, or contact us if you want to obtain some free advice
