Les tiers dans le choix du logement : Comment les agents immobiliers contribuent à l'élaboration des projets résidentiels

Abstract : This article shows how real estate agents take part in residential choices. It also initiates a wider discussion on the role of intermediaries in the housing search process. In spite of the fact that they often have been described as "gatekeepers" or as factors of social or ethnic discrimination, we explore here another direction to see how they help to define the needs and expectations of home seekers and to bind them to the characteristics of the homes for sale. Based on an empirical study in Lyon, this article shows that real estate agents define the frame in which the representations of future buyers can take place.
