  • In France, the real estate agency fees are always included in the price of the apartment. This means that the buyer pays the advertised price, which already includes the agency fees.

    The commission fee of the flat hunter is a percentage of the purchase price and is paid by the client. This fee would be in addition to the actual purchase price .

    Here’s an example to illustrate how it works: If you purchase an apartment for €300,000 (price includes already the agency fees) the flat hunter’s commission fee would be calculated as follows: Commission fee = Purchase price * Commission percentage Commission fee = €300,000 * 0.027 = €8,100 Therefore, the total cost of acquiring the apartment, including the flat hunter’s commission, would be €308,100.
