Hervey Bay real estate agencies are busier than ever as property sales have recently gone through the roof. Regional areas like the coastal city of Hervey Bay and Maryborough are experiencing record sale prices as countless people continue to flee from the larger cities looking to relocate to embrace the wonderful, relaxed lifestyle that the area is most famous for.
Domain Hervey Bay Real Estate Agencies Numbers
If you carry out an agency search on Domain, you’ll see that Hervey Bay itself has more than two hundred real estate agencies listed as having sold properties in the area. Obviously, these results include many out-of-town agencies, but there are at least 35 local Hervey Bay agencies located within the city of Hervey Bay itself. (There are also the nearby towns of Burrum Heads, Maryborough, Howard, and Torbanlea. Numbers do fluctuate from time to time)
It’s a fact that when buying a property, there is little choice except to work with the agency that has the listing for sale, whether you like the agency and/or agent or not. Buyers usually start their search for a home via real estate platforms like realestate.com.au or domain.com.au. They then shortlist those of interest, to finally contact the listing agent or attend an Open Home. The process is usually relatively straightforward, and you as a buyer will have a positive or negative real estate experience.
Different Types of Real Estate Agency & Agent Experiences
Let’s assume that you are a seller that has managed to snag yourself a contract on your house. You’re thrilled that the agent has sold your property. The question to consider is whether your agent was working for you the seller or for his buyer? Some agents may be happy just to get a commission and forget who they are actually working for. And, there are also agents that are simply salaried company employees, whereby the company itself is paid the commission, not the agent that sold the property. Effectively, these salaried agents get paid regardless of the performance and sale price of your property.
Or perhaps you have considered selling your property as an Owner Seller via one of the new do-it-yourself real estate portals that don’t use a property agent at all. These include minus the agent, sell your own home, agent in a box, etc and although each platform promises to save sellers thousands in agent commissions and fees; there are countless traps and legal issues that can occur, and who knows how much money may be left on the table!

You Might be a Bargain Hunter When Buying but You’ll Want to Hire the Best Agency to Get Top $$$ When You Sell
Whether you want to downsize, move into a bigger property, a unit or perhaps buy an investment property to rent out— would you employ the real estate agency or agent that you previously bought through if he/she was working for you the buyer at that time? Of course not!
Property Brokerage is the Best Local Agency to Sell Your Hervey Bay or Maryborough Home
Why choose Property Brokerage to sell your property? We are a family-owned and operated, local independent real estate agency with our modern office located in the Whale Bay Marina, Urangan. Each of our agents (brokers) is a fully licensed real estate agent.
We do not employ salaried salespeople to handle either the listing and/or selling of our client’s properties. This means that only professional, fully licensed real estate agents will list and sell your property and receive commissions based purely on performance and results.
That’s right— Property Brokerage rewards the professional agent(s) that do the work. We are totally different from all other agencies.
Why Do Commission Only Agents Work Harder than Wage Earning Agents?
The answer to that question is actually a no-brainer. The wage-earning agent is no different from a retail worker, whereas the commission-only agent is 100% responsible for what he/she earns.
Rest assured that by choosing Property Brokerage to sell your home, your licensed agent will diligently work with you to ensure that you get the highest price possible for your property. Sure, we work with our buyers as well, after all, it is ultimately buyers that pay our commission, but the long-term true value of a buyer is that he/she becomes a future seller that is more than happy to list with us when the time comes. This is a win-win real estate experience.
