F.A.Q.

What is the difference between a property hunter and a real estate agent?

A real estate agent sells properties for sellers, who have usually mandated them for this purpose (sale mandate).
The property hunter meanwhile offers a customized search service to buyers. They are mandated by them to do so. (search mandate).
Real estate agents and property hunters are complementary.

Property Hunter: is it a regulated profession?

The profession is regulated. To practice the profession, a property hunter must hold a T license: a professional license (Transaction on Properties and Business Assets) issued by the Prefecture, and professional liability insurance. They are subject to Law No. 70-9 of January 2, 1970, called the Hoguet Law. The Unique Properties agency is affiliated with the French FNAIM (National Federation of Real Estate) and the FFCI (French Federation of Property Hunters).

Why use a property hunter?

Because it is difficult and sometimes discouraging to search on your own, because it makes sense to hire a professional who is specialized in the field, because that is the way to find what you want, because it is not more expensive. The property hunter is a real estate expert who masters their “territory” and works with a network of professionals there. They may even provide their clients with opportunities they will have identified before they are openly broadcast on the market.

Is it more expensive to go through a property hunter?

It isn’t. There are no fees to pay at the start of the mission, or through its progress. The property hunter is only remunerated when their search has led to the signing of the deed. In St Barts, the normal transaction fee is 6% of the sale price. It is distributed among the various real estate professionals who take part in the transaction. The property hunter’s service brings no additional cost. Under the Intensive Search Pack ® (exclusive search mandate), the fee rate is reduced to 5%.

Does Unique Properties® only work as a property hunter?

Yes, it does. Unique Properties® is a real estate hunting firm. We are only mandated for searching and do not take sales mandates. We hunt for acquisitions of all kinds: villas, apartments, land and professional premises. Our activity also covers seasonal or long term rentals.
