Your real estate questions answered


How do I choose the right real estate agent for me?

You need to choose an agent you can trust. Check out their sales records and take the time to understand why they do things the way they do.


What’s the difference between a buyer’s agent and a selling agent?

A buyer’s agent will help you when searching for the right property to buy. They can help you research suburb prices and availability, council development or rezoning issues, and find a property to tick off the items on your wish list.

A selling agent is focused on selling their client’s home for the best possible price. They don’t work for the buyer – they are there to maximise price for the seller.


Why do I need an agent if I am buying – won’t the selling agent do everything for me?

No. The seller’s agent works for the seller. They are there to sell the property, not to support you in the buying process or help you find the right property.


Do I need to go with a chain of real estate agents? Will they have better exposure?

Local real estate agencies have the benefit of answering only to their clients. This means we can be flexible and customise buying and selling solutions to suit your circumstances. We know the local area and don’t apply a ‘one size fits all’ approach.


How do I get my home ready to sell?

Preparing to sell can be simple. Allow yourself at least 2 weeks – or more if there are significant updates required. Preparing for sale tips include maintaining gardens, removing clutter and have the property sparkling clean.


When is the best time to sell my home?

Buyers for good quality home can be found all year round. Property marketing has become more sophisticated and timing is less critical.


How long will it take to sell my home?

An accurately priced home will typically sell in two to six weeks. MMG Realty do not put a time limit on selling your property. We’ll work hard to get a great result, in the shortest possible timeframe.


How much notice does the agent need?

Allow at least 2 weeks to prepare your home and engage your agent to start your personalised property marketing plan.


How do I get the best price for my home?

Prepare your home to make the best possible first impression. Partner with an agency like MMG Realty that has an established network of buying and selling contacts – we will most likely know a buyer or investor ready for a property just like yours.


How do I get a new home for the price I want?

Be realistic. Sticking to a budget can mean compromise. Our tips for buying a property include working with a buyer’s agent who can help you research and identify suitable properties that meet your wish list.


Why do you guarantee to beat commission quotes?

As an independent local agency, we answer to our clients, not a head office. We can afford to be flexible based on your individual needs.

We want your business, so we are willing to offer you our lowest costs, with a guarantee of excellent service and advice.
