Buying a Property in France Just Got Cheaper

Meme for the Adrian Leeds Group property for purchase search services

Thinking of buying a property in France? Our new incentive program is for all of our clients—our Rental Search clients, our Search for a Purchase clients as well as those that choose to hire us for Purchase Assistance. The offer is generous. It reduces the fees by 10% if and when you make a purchase within two years of hiring us for any of those services. That can amount to quite a large sum of money!

We understand that clients that will have been living in France for up to two years gaining confidence to think they can do it on their own, when in fact, it’s still a big risk. Instead, it’s a kind of false confidence that can lead to those serious mistakes. This is why our clients continue to want our help, support and the “insurance” we provide that they won’t be making a big and expensive mistake.

Why you would hire us, even though you think you have the “lay of the land” or have met a real estate agent or two, is for a long list of valid reasons, which were recently outlined in great detail in an issue of French Property Insider.

The abbreviated version is this:

1. There is no Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that enables all properties to be available on the market at the same time accessible by all agents and potential buyers. Not so in France. Every agency lists its own “pocket” of properties, so that means visiting a lot of sites and a lot of agencies. It also means that the agents won’t want to disclose something that might prevent you from buying their listing. In contrast, we ferret out the properties that fit the buyer’s parameters from all of the possible resources, and the ones that meet our own criteria for being a good investment for the buyer. Adrian Leeds Group works for the buyer not the seller.

2. If our client contacts the agency directly, without our introduction, then there is no chance of a commission share with the selling agency. That could be an expensive mistake, as we will credit our client for the entire shared commission—about 2.5% of the price of the property!

3. Once the property is identified, an offer is made. We help you through the negotiation process and then work directly with the Notaire to amass all the documents .

4. We review all of the documents (written in French) so no translation is necessary, saving you quite a lot of money. Plus, reviewing them is one thing, but our job is to discover anything at all that would prevent you from purchasing the property. We also assist and advise you regarding the structure of the purchase which is key for inheritance tax purposes.

So, if you want to know what we do in exchange for our fees, it’s all this and much more as outlined in that article, but the main thing to remember is that we provide peace of mind—because without us, or some service like ours, you’re on your own. And that can be a big risk.

To reward our clients for their loyalty, we’ve developed an incentive program to make a property purchase within two years of their Rental Search, Search for a Purchase or Purchase Assistance that will save them quite A LOT of money. It means we earn less, but that’s just fine…in the interest of not only keeping our clients happy, but also keeping them safe from making those big mistakes by not having us at their side.

Here’s how it works:

When we send you our contracts, you will also receive an agreement to sign that informs you of the potential savings. There is NO obligation to use our services in the future, but if you don’t sign the agreement, “tant pis”—you will lose the opportunity…so there is NO reason NOT to sign it!

And for our CURRENT and PAST clients, we’re going the extra mile to offer the same savings for the NEXT two years! This way, it’s a win-win for everyone!

So, what’s the deal?

First off, the Advance Search Fee will be CUT IN HALF. That’s a 50% savings and already that’s thousands of euros/dollars in your pocket!

Then there is a 10% discount off the Finder’s Fees…another savings amounting to thousands of euros/dollars! There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain!

If you are a CURRENT or PAST Client who hired us for any of those services, email us before March 31st to sign the agreement that entitles you to the savings for the NEXT TWO YEARS.

If you aren’t a client yet, no worries—the agreement will be part of the package you receive.
