Hi All, Has anyone sold their own house in Aus? Not keen on the fees the agents are asking for, they are unreal. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

Haven't done it myself, I know what you mean about the fees. In this current market I think you would struggle to sell it yourself, not much moving at all. Have you tried to negotiate the fees down a bit??

go into any estate agent or settlement agents and they will give you a list of the fees , on a sheet , my boos sold her home for 1.3 million and paid fees of 25.000 so you can bargain the fees down

She did alright. Generally at that end of the market the fees are between 2.1 and 2.5%. You also need to factor in an advertising and marketing budget and a whole lot of sensibility as you listen to them and all theeir bull

Just wondering why they don't put their fees on the internet? Might be a bit more competitive then.
