Whether it is a family heritage, a childhood home or an atypical property, we accompany you throughout your project to help you realize new ones. The real estate transaction is the link between supply and demand and includes everything that concerns the purchase and sale of real estate. But before embarking on a real estate transaction, it is important to follow certain steps, including the valuation of your property.

The estimation of your property: an opinion of value

Our first action will be to meet you and visit your property. Then, we will consult the deeds, cadastres, and any other document necessary to discover all its aspects.

This can concern its history, its architecture, its buildings, the surfaces and materials, the foundations, the decoration, the furniture, the easements, the environment, the yields in case of current activity. Mandatory diagnostics, PLU and territorial project reports are also studied. This detailed and global analysis will allow us to deduce a real estate estimate. This estimate is carried out within the framework of the signature of a mandate of sale with the Mercure agent, your referent.

The mandate: a document that formalizes the terms of a real estate transaction

The sales mandate is an official bilateral document that unites a real estate agent and a seller, the owner of the property. In other words, this document allows the owner to entrust the sale of his property to the real estate agent.

After the signature of the mandate between you and the Mercure Forbes Global Properties commercial agent, a complete presentation file in French and English will be drafted and illustrated in order to give it to interested buyers.

In addition, a communication plan will be defined and an advertisement of your property with photos, videos and descriptions in French and English will be created.

Within 2 weeks and after the signature of this mandate, the file and the summary sheets concerning your property will be entirely translated and ready to be distributed. The advertisement of your property will then be published on the selected platforms and referent sites/supports. From then on, the buyers will be informed and the marketing can be effective. Visits can then be organized for potential buyers.

Follow-up of the real estate transaction: from the signature to the handing over of the keys

You will always be able to count on your Mercure referent to give you reports on visits, interest in the property and to proceed with negotiations if necessary.

When a buyer decides to buy, we will send you his offer. If you accept it, the whole presentation file will be brought to the attention of the
the notaries to sign a promise to sell at the agreed selling price. The promise to sell includes the agency fees, generally payable by the seller. Your Mercure representative will accompany you from the signing of the deed to the handing over of the keys to the buyer.
