Real Estate Agency Costs

A real estate agency that delivers value for money

There are some unavoidable costs associated with selling your home. The best real estate agents and agencies will always aim to deliver an excellent sales result for you with minimal costs.

Below is an outline of the typical costs associated with selling a home.

Real estate commission

All real estate agents and agencies charge a commission on a home’s selling price for their services, so you need to make sure you’re getting value for the services they provide. The average real estate commission is between 2 and 3% in Victoria.

But don’t just base your home selling decision on the agent or agency with the lowest real estate commission rate offered. The best Point Cook real estate agents and agencies more than cover the cost of their commission by getting you a higher selling price for your home. They invest more of their time and energy and expertise to get you the best possible result.

Other home-selling costs

Besides a real estate sales agents’ commission, other costs that you may need to factor in when you think “Sell my house” and decide to put your home in Victoria on the market can include expenses for:

To get the best possible price, you need to make your property as marketable as possible. That can mean things like arranging some landscaping, plumbing repairs or a fresh coat of paint.

This can involve hiring temporary furniture and homewares to help with the marketing appeal of your home to potential home buyers.

This includes the cost of advertising your home on popular real estate websites such as realestate.com.au, as well as other marketing initiatives such as brochures, flyers and open homes.The best agents and agencies will be upfront about your options and they will provide you with the right advice and marketing costs to promote your home, and ultimately sell your home for the highest price.

This is the legal process of transferring the ownership of your property to the home buyer on the date you officially move out (called the ‘settlement date’ in real estate jargon).

You will only have this cost if you choose this method of selling your property.

If you still owe money on your home loan, part of the home sale proceeds will be used to pay out your loan and other bank fees and charges associated with your home loan by your lender.

You will need to pay a removalist to get all your furniture, appliances and other personal belongings out of your home prior to settlement.

Note that capital gains tax DOES NOT apply if you’re selling your residential home.Note also that you DO NOT have to pay land transfer (stamp) duty as a home seller. That’s the home buyer’s responsibility.
