How much should you negotiate on a property price?

How much can you negotiate a property price with a vendor without being rejected? According to a study conducted by LPI-SeLoger surveying 2,000 real estate agents across France, there is some positive news for prospective buyers! Negotiation margins have dropped significantly to an average of 4.3%, which equates to 3.7% for apartments and 5% for houses. The data implies that this is due to the increasing pressure from buyers to keep property prices affordable.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ask your agent for advice on your decision
  • Lowballing your offer may result in a refusal to negotiate further with you
  • Bring attention to everything wrong with the property

“There is good news for prospective property buyers in France, as margins of negotiation have dropped to an average of 4.3% across the country (3.7% for apartments and 5% for houses).”
