Real estate agent fees in South East VIC

In South East Victoria, commission rates can vary anywhere between 2.2% and 2.9%, depending on the suburb. In suburbs where the market is more active, commission rates tend to be a little lower. Where the commission is higher, this is usually due to a market being a little slower, where agents have to work a lot harder to make a sale.

Commissions in Australia are not regulated, so as a result, it’s normal to negotiate costs with any shortlisted agents. When you start interviewing agents, make sure you find out what’s included in their commission rate. Some agents will choose to include marketing and advertising in their commission rates while others will charge for these services at an extra cost.
