At Blue Moon Property in Hervey Bay, we believe marketing your home is a privilege...
At Blue Moon real estate agents in Hervey Bay we have put a lot of time and effort into coming up with planned marketing strategies.
The biggest question on most sellers lips is: “How much does it cost to list our house?”
The first question is: “What is the commission?”
The law no longer caps the amount of commission an agent can charge for residential or rural property transactions.
This change to the previous law was included in the Property Occupations Act 2014, which commenced on 1 December 2014.
For the seller this means that there is no longer a set scale for commission and the seller is able to agree upon a percentage of commission payable upon the successful settlement of their property.
We are happy to discuss our fee with you, as there are many factors that will determine the fair commission rate. As a guide our average commission rate is 3% (plus GST) of the sales price. For ease of calculation this equals $3,000 for every $100,000 of property value. Example : Sales Price $300,000 = 3 x $3000 = $9,000 (plus GST) Most of our competitors are a bit shy about answering these questions because they like to charge as much as they can and cover other business costs such as high franchise fees or monthly subscription costs to media companies. As a result they will lead you to believe that paying an up front listing fee is very normal. Our Company is independently owned and as a result we do not have any franchise fees to pay so we are happy to pass the savings onto you. As for the monthly subscription fees, we believe that is a cost for the business to pay on our own without charging our clients up front for the service that we can provide for FREE.
