Real estate agent fees in Tasmania

For the first time in several years, Tasmania is experiencing the best growth in its real estate market, where median house prices have been soaring. However, a limited amount of real estate agents to compete in the Tasmanian market has also reflected an average commission rate of 2.96%.

Compared to most other states, where they usually charge a fee between 2-2.5 percent, it’s clear that Tasmania’s commission sits well above the national average. In Hobart, where the real estate market is the most active, commission rates fair about 2.93%. In other regions, however, commission can be found spotted at lower figures. For example, the average agent commission in Burnie is about 2.85%, while in Launceston, it’s approximately 2.56%.

In a property market where real estate commissions run high, it may be tempting to find an agent who charges a significantly lower rate. But while this may save you a little bit more cash in the short term, it won’t guarantee you an experienced real estate agent to diligently take care of what is most likely your largest asset. For this reason, it’s a good idea to do your research and invest in an agent who you know will work hard for you and deliver on their promises. Not only will they achieve a higher sale price for your property, but they will also work with your best interests at heart.

Tasmania property market

Despite its small size, the real estate market in Tasmania packs a real punch. As a result of a better performing state government and a more diversified economy, the median house and unit price in Tasmania has, in recent years, been growing at a steady upward trend. Vacancy rates have also dramatically dropped and demand has far outgrown supply in many areas. Not only does this represent a good foundation for growth, but it also represents promising returns for potential investors.

What’s it like living in Tasmania?

Tasmania is a pretty awesome place to live, and it looks like plenty of Australians think so too, with interstate migration and tourism numbers on the incline. Tasmania is a beautiful island with many diverse locations suited to families, upwardly mobile young professionals and retirees. The most populous cities of Hobart, Launceston and Devonport are generally more popular for those looking for steady employment.

One of the main advantages of living in a city like Hobart is its lower median property prices, as well as short commuting times and a laid-back lifestyle. On top of this, it’s garnering quite a reputation as a hub of art, culture and creativity with the popular Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) being a drawcard for interstate and international tourists. Dark Mofo, a winter food, art, music and culture festival continues to record huge spikes in attendance year on year, and on some occasions, has even sold out.
