    Commission Structure timeline

    Residential Agent Commissions

    TIMELINE
    1993: –
    It is an offence under the Estate Agents Affairs Board (EAAB) Code of Conduct (Clause 8.2) for estate agents to tell clients that their commission rate is prescribed by law, the EAAB, the Institute of Estate Agents of South Africa (IEASA) or anyone else.

    1990 – 2000: –
    The IEASA recommended professional fees and commissions for estate agent’s services by publishing a Tariff Book for use by its members. The Tariff book recommends minimum fees, hourly rates an sales commissions to be charged by estate agents who are IEASA member for property administration services. The Tarriff Book recommended a 7.5% commission on residential property sales. The 7.5% rate therefore served as a benchmark in the estate agency industry for residential property sales.

    2002: –
    The tariffs were last published by the IEASA.

    2004: –
    The IEASA no longer issues any guidelines on estate agent commissions and fees. This practice was discontinued in view of changes in the competition laws which meant that it was anti-competitive.

    2013: –
    There are currently no official or unofficial guidelines or tariffs whatsoever.

    Estate agents are free to charge whatever commissions and fees they choose.

    Avoid Home Horror! Inspect before you buy

    Sophie’s Properties offers a unique service….. Each home we sell on Exclusive Mandate, has an engineer’s report already in place, therefore avoiding any nasty surprises… A recent newspaper article reads… AVOID HOME HORROR! INSPECT BEFORE YOU BUY… Buying a house should be an exciting and positive experience. But there are far too many unhappy buyers out there who have ended up with houses with numerous defects that were only discovered after the sale was finalized. This means that instead of a happy home, these buyers are left with mounting repair bills and, at times, properties that could pose health risks…

    51 Properties destroyed

    Recently both the Western and Eastern Cape experienced ravaging and runaway fires unlike what we had seen in years. 2017 will surely go down in history as the year of the runaway blaze.

    Not only animals, but human lives too were lost in the inferno.

    Between 7 000 and 10 000 people had to evacuate their homes in and around Brenton where many simply stood in shock and bewilderment as scenes of horror unfolded. While fire fighters were doing what they do best there was clearly not enough help as required. The communities surrounding the affected areas stood together in helping to calm down this furious yet natural element.
    Long after the devastating inferno a black mass of root lay scattered as far as the eye could see and beyond.

    Brenton-on-Sea residents experienced an electricity outage as well as a break in the water supply weeks after the incident. And for those who refuse to lose hope, went back to their homes and are positive to build it up again. The red crosses on the map indicate 51 properties that were destroyed in the raging fires.

    For those seeking to buy a new home, contact Sophie in Brenton-on-Sea 082 572 2729.
