I am constantly on the lookout for great apartments for clients who have engaged us to find their own pied a terre in Paris — those rare ‘wow’ apartments that make you feel at home the moment you step in the door! And recently, we’ve had more requests from serious buyers than ever for a very compelling reason. The dollar has increased in value over 25% against the Euro, so it’s made Paris property 25% cheaper.
But searching for a wonderful Paris apartment is unbelievably difficult. First and foremost there is absolutely NO multiple or central listing service in Paris. Secondly, agencies do not share their listings — so you are truly on your own. You have to be in touch with every single agency in every neighborhood you’re interested in. You have to walk the streets, become friendly with concierges, speak with local shopkeepers, touch base with favorite agents and listings to see if there’s anything new and special for sale. It is very hard, but when you find that ideal apartment, it’s worth it.

There is no better time to buy. If your currency is dollars, the price of an apartment has decreased by 25% in just a few months due to the decline in the Euro. We look forward to answering your questions and welcoming the buyer to our Paris Perfect family of apartment owners!

Key Features to Look For Buying a Paris Apartment
1. Ancien only: must be an old building from the turn of the century — we never look at modern apartments.
2. Elevator: if the apartment is on the first floor and is truly unique and stunning, we would consider it. But it has to be at a discounted price because we believe in buying defensively. If the market is weak, people always buy an elevator building first.
3. Facing the street (you can forget most of the listings that say ‘calme’ because it’s a euphemism for being located on inner courtyards without a street view)
3. Special feature such as a balcony or view
4. Facing West or South
5. Higher floor if possible. If the apartment faces a lower building and looks south or west, will go lower.
