Discover a research conducted quickly by Arnaud Meunier
, our specialized apartment hunter on Paris 14th -15th for a couple of students, eager to find their small Parisian accommodation, while benefiting from wise advice for this first real estate purchase.
What was Christophe and Hélène’s real estate project?
Students at the end of their studies, Christophe and Hélène are determined to find accommodation in Paris, instead of their current rental. And, to accompany this first real estate project,young people can count on the financial support of their respective parents.
Why did they prefer to hire an apartment hunter?
Absorbed by their studies, Christophe and Hélène did not benefit from a very large hourly volume, to carry out their search for apartments. Not to mention that they also preferred to surround himself with a professional to be sure of their acquisition.
How did they choose HOME SELECT real estate hunter?
After a few minutes on the Internet,the young couple filled out the contact form of HOME SELECT: as soon as they were received, Jean Mascla forwarded the request to Arnaud Meunier, one of his real estate hunters, who specializes in the coveted sector.
What exactly was the couple looking for?
Very quickly, our hunter contacted Christophe and Hélène to explain how HOME SELECT works and agree on an appointment to clarify their request and the imperatives associated with their lifestyle,before having them sign a search warrant. As the couple was living in a student residence, Arnaud had no interest in coming to discover their accommodation!
The coveted 2-room room, at least 28 square metres, must include a living room/living room and a separate bedroom. The property must be located in the 14th or 15th arrondissement,in a district, both alive and commercial, with access to Malakoff, as Hélène teaches courses south of Paris. Ideally, the apartment, rather upstairs (no ground floor and first floor) for more light, should be inscribed in a typical Parisian style (parquet, molding, fireplace…)
To make this first real estate purchase a reality, Christophe and Hélène have a budget of 310,000 euros,with the possibility of slightly exceeding this envelope for a favorite.
How did Arnaud start his research?
Once the phone hangs up, Arnaud immediately starts searching: for this, he sets alerts in the HOME SELECT app and works the ads uncovered, one after the other, calling the agencies concerned, to get more information, or even make an appointment …
Why didn’t the first offers come to fruition?
For this research, our apartment hunter made many visits – with or without Christophe and Hélène, depending on their availability. In each of them, he manages to refine the criteria: charm and luminosity have become predominant elements. Just like the quiet and surface of the room. Indeed, Arnaud then understands that it is also intended to serve as an office to allow the couple to work separately in separate spaces.
During this research, the two students positioned themselves twice on a property: they tried to get the first one with a fair offer, but slightly below the asking price and it did not pass. For the second property, a studio that can be converted into two rooms, the seller preferred an offer without suspensive conditions, despite their proposal at the price…
How did Arnaud spot the announcement that would change everything?
Beyond the HOME SELECTalerts, Arnaud continued to look directly at the agency’s website for more expensive goods than the original envelope,as his buyers could take some liberties on this, if any. One evening, he spots an announcement that immediately arouses great interest on the part of Christophe and Hélène (despite the budget):: the couple asks Arnaud to arrange an appointment and the latter gets a visit for the next day in the early afternoon…
What did the apartment look like?
Located in the15th arrondissement, on the Convention side, on a quiet street, while being close to the shops, the apartment belongs to a beautiful building from the 1930s. On the top floor and crossing,it is very bright and has a clear view of the rooftops of Paris. Charming with its suppers, it meets all the criteria of the couple!
Did Christophe and Hélène position themselves quickly?
From the first minutes of the visit, Christophe and Hélène have a real crush on this atypical property: they immediately write an offer at the price without suspensive conditions: as this is the first proposal that the seller receives, it is obviously accepted!
Two days later, the two students return with their respective parents to definitively confirm their decision: within minutes, it’s done!
Did the couple have any work to do?
The apartment did not require any work: Christophe and Hélène simply wanted to redevelop the kitchen space. The rest being in excellent condition.
“Complicated, but very happy to have found”
The search for small-area goods is very quickly complicated in Paris: this type of good goes extremely fast, so you have to stay on the lookout, be very responsive for visits and position yourself quickly! Fortunately, this did not pose any problems for Christophe and Hélène, who were first-time buyers. Not to mention that they also had a good record.
“An atypical “favourite” good: the panacea!”
For their part, the young couple is absolutely delighted with this collaboration: beyond the difficulty of finding this type of property, they are fully aware that “finding an atypical good is all the more rare!”
