Who we are
Paris Property Advisors has over 20 years of wealth management expertise for French and foreign clients living in France and abroad.
We focus on real estate legal issues important to the expatriate community, both residents and non-residents. While our focus has been on wealth management (i.e. tax minimization, inheritance considerations), we also work with clients to source appropriate real estate opportunities.
In France, real estate and business sales are governed by the Law 70-9 of January 2nd 1970 (Le Loi Hoguet). Unlike most search sites, Paris Property Advisors is licensed and registered to transact real estate activity throughout France, offering our customers a guarantee of compliance with French legal requirements and services well beyond identifying properties to purchase.
Once a property has been identified for purchase, Paris Property Advisors helps its clients throughout the transaction process, ensuring technical and legal details are all adhered to while considering the purchaser’s (or seller’s) particular financial objectives, including capital appreciation, opportunity for current income and minimization of inheritance taxes to name a few.
We work with various participants in the real estate market including leading real estate brokerages, notaires, lending institutions and even interior designers, general contractors and other licensed professionals. We work exclusively on our clients’ behalf to source best in class service providers.
After working with you to fine tune your property objectives (neighborhood, square footage, building type, layout, opportunity for rental income, etc.) and with consideration to your financial/budgetary objectives, we pre-select a number of properties that meet your criteria. The pre-selected properties are then shared with you via online private access after you sign an agency contract with Paris Property Advisors. If you wish to proceed with one of the pre-selected properties, we will help negotiate price and take care of all the logistical details related to the purchase (sales contract, closing via notaires, etc.)
We can also assist you with financing, searching out the lowest mortgage rates and innovative financial products, including USD and GBP priced mortgages. To the extent your dream Paris property needs updating or renovation, we will coordinate with locally licensed designers, architects, general contractors, electricians, carpenters and plumbers among others to provide the requisite service.
Finally, to the extent you seek rental income on your Parisian property, we can source rental management firms to handle marketing, lease negotiation and maintenance while you are away.
