Wrong. We're just selling a flat in France and it's the buyers who pay the agency. 5% agency fee, not 10%.
You will find on lower transactions the fees are higher.... The OP is talking about a very cheap apartment.

When I bought a place in France, the seller ended up paying the agent 8% plus TVA thats roughly 9.6%.
5% plus TVA is roughly 6% which is money the buyer is paying that does not go in the sellers pocket.

Perhaps you would state the transaction value your talking about, then we can see if it's relevant for the OP or not. Please also state which department in France as who pays what varies by area.
