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 Forth. To accurately estimate the value of your Forth 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 Forth HOUSE?

There’s a lot to think about when selling your Forth 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 Forth 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.

Making mistakes at this stage could cost you a lot of time and money. Hiring an experienced local real estate agent betters your chances of a hassle-free selling process that ends in a good result for you.

Forth Suburb Overview

Forth is a small village in north-west Tasmania on the Forth River, 11 kilometres west of Devonport and 110 kilometres north-west of Launceston via the Bass Highway. Forth has a population of about 368. Previously known as Hamilton-on-Forth, the village predates the larger settlement of Devonport. Nearby is the Forthside Dairy Research Facility run by the Tasmanian Institute of Agricultural Research.

James Fenton, a young man of Irish descent came to the Forth estuary in 1839 in search of arable land. Assisted by his hired male companion, he erected the first European edifice in the district, and in 1840 returned to take up permanent settlement. He was soon to be followed by Andrew Risby, wife and young family and a handful of other settlers seeking a new life.

Fenton expended large sums of money attempting to drain the esturine swamplands which he hoped would produce ideal cropping fields. This venture failed and he resorted to moving further inland to the rich, although heavily timbered soils of the sloping ground to the west. Fenton is attributed to introducing the practice of ring-barking the large eucalyptus trees to allow light to penetrate the forest floor where the first domestic crops were grown. The district produced fine crops of potatoes in those early years.
