Estimated Agent Commission

The data on this website, including in the graphs and calculator, is approximate in nature and should not be relied upon.

Talking to a top local real estate agent is a good first step to determine what you may be required to pay to sell your property and to understand the local property market.

The graph and calculator use data collected by Which Real Estate Agent in 2019, and provides a state-wide average estimation of commission rate. The data presented should only be used as an indication of what you may be required to pay.

Be careful of extra fees that may be charged by a real estate agent. We recommend you properly review the agency agreement and cost schedules, so there are no surprises when you are presented with the final bill.

There is almost always room to negotiate commissions with agents. Do not be afraid to ask for an agent fee structure that favours your situation and ensures the agent does their job.

However, remember that an agent willing to drop their agent fees to rock-bottom are not likely to have your best interests at heart. Make sure you’re not just padding out someone else’s sales statistics - you should spend a little more to make more.

Balgownie Suburb Overview

Balgownie is a small suburb of Wollongong City, New South Wales, Australia.

Balgownie lies to the north-west of the Wollongong CBD. It stretches from the lower slopes of Mount Keira along the Illawarra escarpment to the base of the Broker’s Nose promontory. To the east, Balgownie is bordered by the light industrial and commercial suburb of Fairy Meadow.

The main street, Balgownie Road, connects the suburb to the nearby Princes Highway. Balgownie is mostly residential with a small commercial centre known as the Balgownie Village.

Balgownie has a similar history to many towns on the NSW south coast. When first settled in the 19th century, Balgownie was the centre of local logging, coal mining and farming industries. With the economic and population growth of the 20th century Balgownie was overtaken by the expanding urban sprawl and transformed from a small country hamlet to a residential suburb.

Balgownie is home to citizens right across the socioeconomic spectrum, from public housing estates in the east to multi-million dollar mansions on the escarpment.

Sites of interest include the Balgownie Public School’s museum, The Bally Pub, Balgownie Village Patisserie , the Urban Grind Cafe and the war memorial. This war memorial will have extensive developments during the next few years. There are also several fine eateries in the suburb including Il Porcellino and Il Nido which serve Australian and Italian cuisine.

Over the last five years, the Australian property market has exploded and as a result many of the open spaces and paddocks that once greened the suburb have been turned into town house or “villa” developments.

The area features the oldest active football club in Australia, Balgownie Rangers, founded in 1883.
