The Real Estate Commission Fee Calculator is a tool that calculates the real estate fees a property owner might pay a real estate agent in a particular location for the sale of a property. It is a guide only but gives an approximate cost should a property be sold via a real estate agent.
This real estate commission calculator tool will help you work out the approximate standard commission fees for various real estate agents throughout New Zealand. This is approximately how much it will cost in total (commission fees plus administration charges) to sell your property using a real estate agency. Commission guide results include GST.
