We're your local Western Australian experts

At more than 2.5 million square kilometres, WA is Australia's largest state. The property market varies significantly between areas. While Perth holds approximately 75% of the WA population, areas such as Port Hedland, Broome, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Mandurah, Bunbury and Albany all have significant populations as well.

WA's economy, population and property market are all closely linked to the mining industry. With the mining boom now over, there has been a gradual slowdown in population growth and a downward trend in property prices as a result.

When deciding on your agent, price is just one factor to consider when you compare agents in your area. Every region across WA is unique, with local economies being influenced by different factors. So along with an agent who charges reasonable fees, you need to be looking for one with knowledge of the local economy as well.

Other important characteristics in a good real estate agent include:

1. Solid sales history

a strong history of successful sales over the past 12 months is a good indicator of an agent's ability to walk the talk.

2. Intimate local knowledge

a sound understanding of the local market including average prices, current demand, buyer demographics and timeframes will ensure a realistic approach to selling your home.

3. Similar property sales

a successful sales record involving similar property to yours suggests they have a better idea of how to adequately market and sell your home.

4. Satisfied customers

genuine testimonials from satisfied clients is one of the best indications of an agent's worth.

5. Agency backing

if the agency they belong to is reputable and well resourced, this can be a great indicator of whether they'll get the job done.

6. Marketing strategy

knowing how they would market your property can provide valuable insights into how successful they would be and how much the process is likely to cost you.

7. Confidence

quiet confidence in their own abilities will inspire confidence in you, and potential buyers.

8. Charisma

being able to effortlessly engage with potential buyers is a real asset, particularly when negotiations are involved.

You can compare many of these characteristics with LocalAgentFinder including performance data, customer reviews, marketing strategy and commission rates. Just enter your property details and preferences, click on your location in WA, and our search engine will do the rest.
