Discover a search conducted quickly by Marie Esmieu-Fournel, our specialized apartment hunter on Paris 6th. For many weeks, Cécile had been looking for a rental investment that was financially attractive and aesthetically meeting her criteria. A challenge taken up handily, in 15 days, by our property seeker!
What is the client project?
Already owning an apartment in the6th Cecile is a woman who is looking for additional income to improve her retirement. Having recently received an inheritance, she wishes to place this money in the Parisian stone, through a Interesting rental investment. However, even if this property is intended for rent, it must be likely to please it and be in a neighborhood in which it can project itself.
Why an apartment hunter?
After spending a few weeks searching on her own, Cecile decided to call on a real estate hunter – whether to find the property, but also to reinforce her choices and get advice for renting.
Why HOME SELECT real estate hunter?
After a quick search on the Internet, Cecile came across the Home Select website. Deeming us serious at first, she decided to call us and ask us a few questions, to test our expertise. A test obviously passed successfully, since she then asked for a contact with our apartment hunter specialized in the 5e and the 6th arrondissement, Marie.
What are the criteria for the search mandate?
The first appointment took place at Cécile’s home : even if the research was focused on a rental investment, the client wanted to be able to project herself there. It was then interesting, for our real estate hunter, to discover Cecile’s environment. Naturally, on this occasion, they also took stock of the important criteria – namely, an apartment 35 sqm, up to4th without elevator, without work, in a chic building and on a quiet street… The search area spanned the entire 6the arrondissement, as well as a stretch of the 5th and 7th arrondissements, for a total budget of 500,000 euros Agency-Inclusive fees.
What is the apartment hunter’s action plan?
Cecile had specifically asked Mary to visit all the goods she spotted (no pre-visits!) : when she retired, she had the necessary responsiveness to the Paris market! No problem, on the contrary! Every morning, our apartment hunter logged on to the Home Select app, to select only those with real potential. Then she called to arrange her appointments. At the same time, it inquired with his contacts for further visits.
How did the search go?
By visiting some apartments on Rue Mouffetard, in the5th arrondissement, and faced with Cécile’s rejection of these assets, Marie was able to refine and prioritize the criteria : a south-facing orientation, no opposite, light, calm, and finally, no food or restaurant. This last point immediately excluding Rue Mouffetard… Then, as it was a rental investment, our property researcher took the time to explain to her client the logic of rent control, seasonal options, the benefits of a furnished apartment, etc. For each visit, she provided information on the rental value of the property. This is how the docks of the 5thE borough were naturally excluded from the search area: they were too expensive in relation to the potential profitability of rents. Moreover, before calling marie, Cécile had already visited an apartment on Rue de Condé, which she had liked very much: the only reason for her refusal to make an offer was in her access by service stairs. Marie has therefore tightened her action around the6th arrondissement.
How did the apartment hunter find out?
As every morning, Marie looked at the new listings and identified a potentially interesting apartment. She calls the agency for further information on the property: unfortunately, the real estate agent has not yet seen it. It is therefore agreed that they will all go together during the day. And there, luck! This is an apartment located on Rue de Condé, in the same building as the one already visited by Cecile… With access via the main staircase!
What is the description of the property found?
With an area of 29.5 m2, the apartment has good exposure. At 4E floor without elevator, it also offers a view, without any opposite, on the roofs of the building opposite. Little noisy, it immediately pleases Cecile! Not to mention that a simple tasteist is to be expected …
How did our client decide?
After the visit, Cécile and Marie go directly to the agency to write an offer for 435,000 euros. A proposal accepted within the hour, to the extent that it was carried out without the help of a loan. Our apartment hunter had warned his client that he would certainly have to make an offer at the price, as it was a very popular street in the 6th Arrondissement. Moreover, for the record, the property in question had been deposited in a second agency, which had an offer the following evening…
Has any work been done?
Before renting her apartment, Cécile plans to work lightly, such as buying the water balloon and upgrading the electricity to the standards.
The conclusion of your apartment hunter
One of the first roles of an apartment hunter is to filter the ads correctly, to offer the client only the goods they might like : a time saving and know-how proven by Cecile who, after months of research, made his purchase in less than 15 days, with Mary. In addition, the competition of a hunter reassures and frames actions and allows you to move forward with confidence… Perfect support for stressed and anxious natures!
