No up-front fees!
Our commission is due only if we succeed

We do not charge upfront fees (As required by the French regulation - Article 6 of the law "loi Hoguet" N°70-9 from 2nd of January 1970), but only a commission if we succeed, with written contract ensuring security, confidentiality and professional ethics.

For transactions: Côté Acheteur's commission is due only upon transaction.

Our commission id due only once all the suspensive conditions have been satisfied, at the closing signature at the latest.

Côté Acheteur's commission varies between 2 and 6% including Tax depending on the area of search and on the transaction channel:
  • 1. For a transaction with private owners, we align our commission to the average commission applied by local real estate agencies
  • 2. For a transaction through a real estate agency, they are either shared with the agency, either reduced to by 30 to 40%.

    Note: Our commercial policy is to ensure that we cover the entire local real estate market. However, a few real estate agencies do not accept to share their commission. Therefore in that case, we have to adapt to the agency holding the sell, and reduce our fee to allow our clients to purchase the selected property.

To confirm local rate, please request an estimate to the relevant local property finder.

For rental services: our fees are on average 2 months of rent excluding Tax, with a minimum of 2 500 € excluding Tax.
