**IMPORTANT FINANCIAL SAVINGS TO BUYER**
- In France it is often the buyer who pays the real estate agents commission. This is usually the rule, except within the Paris region where the seller pays the agents commission. Furthermore, agent's fees are not fixed so differences may exist depending on the region in France. Buyer's commissions/fees may be charged at rates anywhere between 4% and 15%, although 7% is more common.
This property is offered for sale directly by the owner; therefore, the buyer DOES NOT pay or incur any agent fees, commissions, or Value Added Tax (VAT) on the agents commission.
