Our remuneration for assistance with selling your flat
Start: a one-time expense allowance
After the free intake interview, we draft a tailormade agreement that describes our precise mission and the total amount you will pay us. Upon signature we will charge you a one-off expense allowance of 1000 Euro (excluding 20% French VAT). Then, right away, we start our assistance to sell your flat in Paris! Do you ultimately decide not to sell your apartment? Then this expense allowance is all you pay. ParisScarabee Househunters: no cure, no pay.
What do you get for that?
For this one-time expense allowance, we intensively help you with the sale of your property during 6 months. That period can be extended by 3 months each time. The amount includes all our preparations and preliminary exchanges. We will carefully select and brief 2 to 3 selling agents in Paris. We make sure the commission you pay them is reasonable. We also oversee the contractual part. We translate where necessary. And we make sure your flat stays top of mind. Here you find a detailed description of our services.
The one-off expense allowance also helps us to determine whether you, as a customer, are as seriously committed as we are to your mission to sell your real estate property in Paris. We deduct the one-off expense allowance from our final fee, that you pay once the keys of your property have been transferred to the new owner.
Your choice: percentage of the selling price or fixed amount
You only pay us the final fee if you have actually sold your Paris apartment and handed over the keys to the buyer. This ultimately is the reward for our work. You can choose which pricing option you prefer.
Option 1: percentage of the actual selling price
If you chose this option, you pay us 2.5% of the final sale price ("frais d'agence inclus, FAI"). Our fee is a maximum of 10,000 Euros if the selling price of the apartment does not exceed 1 million Euros (FAI). For a sales price of more than 1 million Euros (FAI), we separately determine what is a reasonable percentage.
Option 2: a fixed amount
If you chose this option, we agree on a fixed amount in Euros. Whether you sell your apartment for a higher or a lower price, the amount in Euros that you pay us does not vary.
What do you pay if you decide not to sell your apartment in Paris?
If you ultimately don’t sell your apartment in Paris, despite all the effort and time we have put into assisting you, all you will have paid to us is the one-off expense allowance of 1000 Euro excluding VAT. Nothing more. That’s what we mean when we say: ParisScarabee Househunters, no cure, no pay.
We have to charge you 20% French VAT on all abovementioned fees
