A chat with Paris real estate expert Miranda Junowicz Bothe
Great information! Thanks and I will airbnb rather than deal with all the headaches!
What an interesting podcast. Thank you both for giving us the details on apartment buying in Paris.
You are a very good interviewer. I learned a ton. One thing I found interesting talking to a friend who sells real estate in France is the HOA fees and the taxes on apartments. If I understand correctly, they are not nearly as high as in the USA? Maybe you can do another podcast on how these fees work?
Wonderful, as a real estate broker in the US of 40 years, and a francophile who has of course thought about having a Paris apt, this was great. But man, that issue of no centralized MLS is a bear!
Thank you , so interesting to see the differences between sellers and buyers in France.
David…. You are the BEST interviewer….and you have such interesting topics…. I love learning new things…. Especially about Paris…. I look forward to everything you do for us followers!
Great podcast. I’d also be interested in learning about the holding costs of real estate in Paris. Real estate taxes? Monthly common area charges per square meter? Hidden costs that one never thinks about?
Bonjour, David - I enjoyed this podcast very much and what a wonderful advocate Miranda must be. Just a comment on American real estate, having bought and sold several properties in the Bay Area and here in the PNW, I have always felt that the buyer has the upper hand. All the “bartering” on house sales seems orientated towards getting the seller to take the lowest price. Just my impression with my experiences. Thanks for another wonderful podcast.
Bill 5 in Québec: As of June 10, 2022, brokers will be prohibited from representing both a buyer and a seller, or a lessee and a lessor, in a single transaction involving a residential building. A single broker will therefore no longer be allowed to represent both parties in a transaction. Ending double representation is aimed at ensuring that buyers are treated more equitably in an overheated real estate market.
Miranda was in charge of my sale when I bought 19 years ago. She did not have her own company then. She was amazing! Honest and hard working. I have recommended her to many friends looking to buy in Paris. Gr8 interview!
Such an interesting podcast. Thanks to both of you.
