Real estate agent fees in Southern SA

Are you looking to sell your home? Then you’ll want to know what commission rates you’re likely to pay in Southern South Australia. In Southern SA, commission rates will vary between areas. You’re looking at a sliding scale of between 2% and 2.9%.

In Mt Gambier for example, commission rates are on average 2.86%. It’s important to know that since commissions are not regulated you are able to negotiate with agents when it comes to fees and costs.

What’s it like living in Southern SA?

A vast and varied expanse of coastline, the Southern region of South Australia is rich in natural beauty and local produce. The eastern end of the region borders with Victoria, where the Murray River crosses into South Australia and meanders southwards to a large region called Murraylands. The lower end of the Murray River basin is known for its extensive reliance on agriculture, including livestock and sustainable produce.

In fact, the region is referred to as Australia's food bowl. Tourism is also a big drawcard for the area, with its host of reserves, walking trails, parks and sporting facilities - an example of which is The Murray Bridge Rowing Club, one of Australia's oldest rowing clubs. To the state's far south-easterly corner is its second most populous city, Mount Gambier, located at the base of an active volcano.

The Murray River meets the Southern Ocean, just below Adelaide, in a wine-making region known as the Fleurieu Zone; a string of 5 regions along the coast that benefit from a Mediterranean-like climate. One of these winery-rich zones is situated on Kangaroo Island, 112km South-West of Adelaide. The island is Australia's third largest and has become a popular tourist destination - home to spectacular shorelines, penguins and sea lions.
