Costs Associated With Selling A House
1. Real Estate Agent Fees and Commission
When you use the expertise of a real estate agent to sell your property, you will more than likely need to pay them a commission or fee.
This amount, either a flat fee or a percentage of the final sale price, is outlined in writing prior to any home going on the market.
At Northside Realty we operate on a very competitive fixed fee structure because it offers our vendors value with 28 years of experience locally.
2. Marketing Costs
A thorough and effective marketing campaign typically can cost anywhere between $2,000 to $3000 north of Brisbane.
As many buyers begin their property search online, we recommend – at minimum – including an online property listing which has a floor plan, professional photography and videography, and a virtual tour.
Other marketing costs could include a customised ‘for sale’ sign with property images and details, a print property listing and brochures to be handed out at open homes, as well as social media campaigns.
We’re happy to chat through additional marketing ideas that will help sell your home for more.
Conveyancing is typically done by a licensed solicitor or conveyancer and occurs with every single real estate purchase.
It involves passing the ownership of the land title from the old owner to the new one.
Conveyancing typically starts from about $500. We can put you in contact with great local conveyancers in our network.
The land transfer duty, or stamp duty, is paid by the buyer.
4. Professional Styling (Optional Cost)
Potential home buyers struggle to get a real feel for a property when it is messy and cluttered.
While styling isn’t a must-have expense for everyone, we find professional styling and impeccable presentation helps to sell a home faster and often for more money.

5. Lender Fees
Sellers who are still paying off the mortgage will pay a fee/s to their bank or lender. These may include an early exit fee, a settlement fee and a prepayment fee.
6. Auction Costs (Optional Cost)
If you are selling your property at auction, there will also be costs associated with that, such as the fee for the auctioneer, ranging from $500 to $1,000.
