Calculate Real Estate Agent Fees & Commission [NSW]

You will find our real estate agent commission calculator below. Just type in a predicted property value or sale price to find a rough commission estimate.

Keep in mind that real estate agent commission varies across the state, especially between metro and rural areas. This calculator should only be used to give a rough guide on how you may be charged for the sale of your property.


Estimated Agent Commission

Note that 2.1% is the average commission for a property in NSW. The commission is calculated by multiplying the property value and commission together, then dividing by 100, i.e. Property Value * Agent Commission / 100 = Estimated Commission, excluding GST.

This calculation does not include GST. When receiving quotes from agents, ensure that you know whether their fees also include or exclude GST. Commission will vary and can be negotiated according to the range of services your agent can provide, plus the location, style, condition, size and other attributes of your property.

Real estate agent fees are not regulated in New South Wales, which means that agents are allowed to choose how they charge commission and sellers are free to negotiate with the agent to find an agreeable fee structure and price.

As a competitive selling environment, Sydney real estate agent fee percentages are fairly low. This is offset by New South Wales possessing, on average, the highest property prices in the country.

This calculator should only be used as a general guide, as laws governing regulation can change and property markets can fluctuate, altering how commissions or fees may be charged.
