    Our process

    Our Contract

    At our first meeting, we will discuss your expectations, dreams, and budget. We then put together a report with the specifics necessary to outline the research.

    • Apartment size
    • Budget
    • Neighborhoods
    • Architectural style of building
    • Floor, elevator
    • Light, noise factor
    • Work, renovation, etc.

    Given our in-depth knowledge of the Parisian architecture, prices, and particularities of each neighborhood, we are able to council you to make your project realistic.

    This initial meeting takes place in your home, our office, or by skype or telephone if you are living outside of France.

    We work on an exclusive basis

    • our contract is valid for 3 months and renews itself automatically
    • we commit to showing you a given number of properties that correspond to your criteria
    • we guarantee our strictest confidentiality
    The Search

    We begin searching for you as soon as the contract is signed.

    There are no multi listings in France, and no shortcuts when it comes to exhausting the market.
    We comb through numerous classified ads, published by more than 4 000 agencies, individual owners and notary listings.

    Homelike Home selects the ads, conducts visits, and then proposes corresponding properties.

    Since we have an exclusive contract together we are able to make an offer for a flat even if you are not in France.

    We are completely transparent with our work, number of hours worked on research, number of apartments visited etc.


    Each visit renders a comprehensive summary report, including pictures, maps and a floor plan, available through the client access on our website.

    These summary reports are always presented in the same format, allowing you to see all aspects of the property visited:

    • Price
    • Size, number of bedrooms
    • Style of the building
    • Floor plan
    • Potential work needed
    • View
    • Orientation
    • All accompanied with pictures that show not only the positive points, but the negatives as well
    • You will visit Parisian apartments from your home!
    The Signing of the Deal

    Once we have found a product that corresponds to most of the criteria of your search, we will set up a meeting with both you and the seller.
    The pertinent documentation is then gathered by Homelike Home for consultation before making the final decision (co-owners information, work to be conducted on the building, taxes, monthly charges, and the “diagnostics”: measurements, presence of lead, termites etc.)

    We accompany you every step of the way, including the negotiation process, and offer our market expertise.

    Our Fees

    Our fees are based on our comprehensive services from the initial meeting to the final signature of the property, when you have your “keys in hand”. We also include settling in services (opening telephone, cable, and electricity contracts).

    We have no up-front fees.

    We go one step further and offer partnerships with our selected English-speaking professionals free of charge:

    • Notaries
    • Brokers
    • Bankers
    • Tax attorneys
    • Rental agencies, that rent your property when you are not there
    • Renovation, painting, and cleaning specialists
    • Home insurance agents.

    Our fees are a percentage of the final purchasing price of the property.

    We carry out purchase and rental research, for individuals and professionals in France.

    Purchase :

    If the property is listed by a real estate agency, other intermediary or direct from the seller, the commission fees remain the same.

    The fees are calculated according to a decreasing rate scale per tranche depending on the property’s price. This remuneration including tax will be calculated on the price recorded by the notary (agency fees included, excluding notary fees):

    Property Price Fees (including taxes)
    Property ≤ 600 000 € 2.90 %
    600 001 € to 900 000 € 2.65 %
    900 001 € to 1 200 000 € 2.25%
    1 200 001 € to 1 500 000 € 2.00%
    1 500 001 € to 2 500 000 € 1.50%
    Beyond 2 500 001 € 1.00%

    Example :

    For a property acquired at 875,000 Euros, agency fees included, the remuneration including tax Homelike Home will be :

    600 000 € x 2,90% = 17 400 €
    (875 000 – 600 000 €) x 2.65% = 7 287 €

    Amount of fees = 17,400 + 7,287 = €24,687 including tax

    i.e. 2.82% including tax on the price of the property.


    Renting :

    Property research fees are one month’s rent (before taxes) of the rented property (remuneration including VAT).

    Turnkey Rental investment :
