More Information

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.

WHAT IS MY HOUSE PRICE ESTIMATE?

There are several variables that can affect property values in Footscray. To accurately estimate the value of your Footscray property, these variables need to be taken into account.

One of the most significant, but surprising, contributors to your property price is proximity to loud areas or industry.

Several nearby types of infrastructure may drive your house value estimation down. Public infrastructure such as busy roads or flight paths could generate a lot of noise pollution which may deter some buyers, leading to your property selling at a lower price.

With so many potential factors affecting a property’s price, it’s best to do some research before talking to agents.

Figure out the value of your home, and start your selling journey with some confidence. Get started by requesting a property appraisal from an agent today.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO SELLING MY Footscray HOUSE?

There’s a lot to think about when selling your Footscray property, and a lot of it happens before signing up with an agent.

It’s a good idea to start with some independent research, before committing to selling your Footscray property. Start by looking at property market statistics which will give you an idea of property values and price trends. Speak with a few agents to see what they think of your property, and how to best market and sell your home.

Make sure you are sure about selling, and are realistic about your property’s value when talking to agents. A mistake here could cost you. The best way to avoid costly missteps and get a good price is to sign up with a strong local real estate agent that can walk you through the whole selling process in an honest way.

Footscray Suburb Overview

Footscray is a suburb 5 km west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Maribyrnong. At the 2011 Census, Footscray had a population of 13,203.

Footscray is characterised by a very diverse, multicultural central shopping area, which reflects the successive waves of immigration experienced by Melbourne, and by Footscray in particular. Once a centre for Italian and former Yugoslavian migrants, it is now a hub for Vietnamese, and increasingly, East African immigrants in Melbourne.

Footscray is named after the Foots village, on the River Cray in Kent, England, United Kingdom.

Footscray is part of the City of Maribyrnong and was built largely on the traditional lands of the Kulin nation.

For thousands of years, Footscray was the meeting place of the lands of the Yalukit-willan, the Marin-balluk and the Wurundjeri. Koories stalked game, collected food and fished along the river junction, estuaries, swamps and lagoons. Within Melbourne’s western region, the Marin-balug and Kurung-jand-balug clans of the Woiwurrung cultural group, and the Yalukit willam clan of the Boonwurrung cultural group shared the luscious resources around the Maribyrnong Valley.

The first European to visit the area was Charles Grimes in 1803. A park, where he landed, is named after him at Napier St.

In 1839 a punt was built on the Maribyrnong River, it was the only connecting link between Melbourne and Geelong, Ballarat, Castlemaine and Bendigo. The Punt Hotel opened three years later and was the first building in the area. During the first decade drovers transporting cattle and sheep provided the only business at the hotel. After 1851, when gold was discovered out west, the pub did a roaring trade with diggers. Part of the old pub still stands and it has been renamed The Pioneer.

Footscray was declared a Municipality in 1859 with a population of 300 and 70 buildings. Around the same year the first bridge was built across Saltwater River.

Between 1881 and 1891 Footscray’s population more than tripled from almost 6,000 to 19,000.

Footscray developed into an industrial zone in the second half of the nineteenth century, with the manufacturing industry beginning to decline in the 1960s and 70’s.
