We charge between 1-2% of the sale price. A partial service is 1% and a full service is 2%.

Because we only take on 1-2 new clients per Agent at any one time, we prefer to work with Clients who require the full service. That way we can do the best job from end to end.

There is no such thing as an ‘off-market’ property. It’s either on the market or it’s not. All properties that are available for sale must have a CONTRACT OF SALE which by it’s inclusion means that the property is on the market.

The term really should be a ‘non-marketed’ property. Generally, a Vendor will choose this option for one or more of the following reasons:

  1. To maintain confidentiality of a high-value property.
  2. They have previously been on the market and don’t want to over-expose the property.
  3. They do not want tyre-kickers, time-wasters to enter their home.
  4. They feel they will get a better price from database buyers.
  5. They do not want to spend money on marketing dollars with their Agent.

Marketing to a database of buyers within the Agency is free and can be more targeted to the right type of buyer. A good buyers agent will be included in every database within their buying territory.

Buyers Agents may target properties that are not on the market through door knocking or direct contact methods to see if an owner may sell and then they would put their property on the market.
