The holiday vibe makes the Shore feel so far away, yet many of its best loved spots are only 15-20 minutes from the CBD - or even better - a short ferry ride on Auckland’s beautiful harbour.
There is every type of housing available whether you’re looking for exclusive waterfront properties, premium family homes or smaller first time buyer or investment-friendly dwellings.
What commission fee do the big Auckland real estate agencies charge?
Traditional real estate agencies charge 4% on the first $400,000 of the sale price and then an additional 2% on the remainder. An admin fee of around $500 and GST are then applied on top.
Commission fees in the big Auckland real estate agencies are a hangover from the days when sale prices were a fraction of today’s figures. These days however, they’re out of whack with the current market.
How can we afford a smaller commission fee?
We’re an independent agency so we don’t pay franchise fees and we use cloud based software to reduce overheads.
