Real Estate Agents in South Coast NSW

The South Coast refers to the narrow coastal belt from Sydney in the north to the border with Victoria in the south in the south-eastern part of the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is bordered to the west by the coastal escarpment of the Southern Tablelands, which is largely covered by a series of national parks, namely Jervis Bay National Park, Eurobodalla National Park, and Ben Boyd National Park.

Real estate agent fees on the NSW South Coast

The average real estate agent commission in South Coast NSW is 2.78%, which sits just over the state average. It is important to realise that just because a commission is low, the overall fee may be higher when marketing and advertising costs are considered. As there are no national guidelines governing real estate agent fees, it is normal to negotiate, and most good agents will be open to flexible commission structures.

Tiered commission structures can also be a good way to incentivise your agent and may result in a better sale price.

South Coast NSW property market

Compared to capital cities, the NSW South Coast offers a much lower median house price and makes a perfect option for people wanting to enter the housing market at an affordable price point. A ripple effect has seen a boom in the housing markets across NSW coastal satellite regions.

Bang for buck and potential growth makes it a better time than ever to invest outside of Sydney. Notable regions to explore include the Illawarra and the Shoalhaven.

What’s it like living on the NSW South Coast?

The South Coast of NSW is broadly defined as the long stretch of coastline spanning from the south of Sydney to the Victorian border. There are four main regions along this vast stretch: the Illawarra Coast, Shoalhaven Coast, Eurobodalla Coast and the Sapphire Coast. Each area has its own unique charm and must-see places of natural beauty.

The Illawarra is a popular and always growing region that serves as the perfect base for both young professionals, growing families, retirees and students. Being only an hour and a half from Sydney’s CBD, the region is a perfectly situated commuter town that also garners plenty of interest from first-home buyers who haven’t been able to crack the Sydney market. Its world class educational institutions, like the University of Wollongong also ensure that the region itself is constantly thriving with art, culture, nightlife, live music and food, thanks to its sizable student population.

As you venture south towards Nowra, Bega, Eden and Merimbula, the coastline is awash with picturesque villages, fishing towns and beaches that are popular with tourists in the warmer months of the year. The region also boasts fertile ground for farming and viticulture with world class vineyards, dairy farms and cheese factories peppering the coast. The coastal corridor is lined with several national parks, including Jervis Bay National Park, Eurobadalla National Park and Ben Boyd National Park.
