You could save tens of thousands of dollars by selling a property yourself. That's a great overseas holiday, a new car or a new boat.

There doesn't have to be any awkward face to face negotiations.

Once someone shows interest in your property just do your negotiations via email, text, messenger, WhatsApp or the likes. Or ask your lawyer to negotiate on your behalf if you are uncomfortable with this aspect of the process.

It's no different to selling a car yourself. Negotiate a price, then your lawyer will complete the property transaction.

Your lawyer will guide you through the entire process.

It is always strongly recommended you use a registered lawyer for all property transactions.

So a $550,000.00 sale price should save you around $22,000.00*.

Ask yourself how long does it take you to save $22,000.00*.

Commissions vary, from the likes of 4% for the first $300k and 2.5% thereafter,  and then marketing and administration costs, all are GST exclusive*.

Other Commissions start at 1% right up to 3.75% flat rate, then administration and marketing costs, plus GST*. 

If you are in the $3.5m bracket at 3.75% commission for example, that equates to a whooping $161,000.00 including marketing, administration & GST*.

It is strongly recommended that you employ the services of a Lawyer for the entire process whether purchasing or selling a property.
