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 Stirling. To accurately estimate the value of your Stirling 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.

Initially, you should look at the Stirling property market and see if the conditions are right. Get an idea of how much your property is valued in the present day, starting with an independent property value report. Then you will want to contact and interview multiple agents (ideally around 3) and discuss selling methods, advertising and fees.

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.

Stirling Suburb Overview

Stirling is a town located in the Adelaide Hills. It is administered by the Adelaide Hills Council. Its population is about 2500, though the town has largely merged with neighbouring townships such as Crafers and Aldgate. The towns closely surrounding it are: Aldgate, Crafers, Bridgewater and Heathfield. Out of those five, Stirling is one of the most popular to live in, This is because Stirling has a large main street and has more specific shops.

Founded in 1888, Stirling grew rapidly as a result of the expansion of apple growing and market gardening to satisfy the demand of the expanding city of Adelaide, whose centre is only 15 kilometres from Stirling. It was also developed as a residence for Englishmen who could not cope with Adelaide’s hot summers. Today, farming has declined as more of the region has been urbanised, with many Stirling residents commuting to Adelaide daily. The Stirling area is a popular holiday home location for wealthy Adelaideans wishing to escape the summer heat. As a result many historic, grand mansions can be found in the area.

Owing to the wet and mild climate, many deciduous trees have been imported from Europe, and these are a popular tourist attraction in the autumn months. Other tourist sites include the nearby Belair National Park and Cleland Conservation Park.

Owing to its location near Mount Lofty, Stirling is the wettest place in South Australia, receiving an average of 1200 millimetres of rain per year – more than twice the average of Adelaide. Between May and August, the average monthly rainfall is as high as 155 millimetres, and in June 1916, over 450 millimetres fell. Mean summer temperatures are about 5

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology stopped the collection of weather data at Stirling from the 1980s onward. Weather recording instruments were removed from the grounds of Australia Post’s Stirling office following a commercial dispute between these two Australian government organisations.

Stirling is located in the state electorate of Heysen and in the federal Division of Mayo. The local council is the Adelaide Hills Council in the Mt Lofty and Manoah wards.

A prominent landmark in Stirling is the historical Stirling Theatre, home to the Hills Musical Company, Stirling Players and Hills Youth Theatre. Stirling also has a strong affinity with books and has been referred to as South Australia’s ‘Book Village’. This relates to the close proximity of varied book venues Chapter Two Books, Matilda Bookshop, The Hut Book Shed and the Coventry Memorial Library.

The Stirling community is protected from fire, road crash and Hazardous Materials by the Stirling Country Fire Service Volunteers. In 2006, the Adelaide Hills Council stepped up efforts to relocate the station to Crafers, against the wants of the volunteers. The council proposed the move in order to sell the land currently inhabited by the CFS station on Avenue road, to fund a new Library. However, in mid 2006 the council elected to sell the land the fire station was on to SAFECOM. The new Library started construction anyway, in early 2007 and was completed the following year.
