We'll guide you through selling your property
Our real estate Seller’s Advocacy service (sometimes referred to as ‘vendor advocacy’) is for those looking to sell an investment property without the hassle of selecting and negotiating with a real estate agent.
Professional representation from beginning to end
Your seller’s advocate will guide you through the sales process from beginning to end.
We will identify the strongest sales agent in your area that is best suited to your property and circumstances. We’ll then arrange everything with them directly, from terms of agreement through to advertising and offers, to purchase. To provide you with added protection, our own contracts are used in the process.
Our Seller's Advocacy gives you peace of mind
We work on your behalf to ensure a seamless sales process. We’ll pay the real estate agent’s commission and will hold them to account by reviewing the marketing strategy and sales campaign – and ensuring they secure the best deal for you. This service, along with standard industry advertising, is designed to be no more expensive than going to an agent directly.
Leverage our knowledge, experience, network of agents and processes to your benefit and ensure you are in the best position possible, every step of the way.
We’ll select the right agent
We will assess your property and personal circumstances to select the right agent for your needs. With an expansive network and vast knowledge of the local market, we are well equipped to find the right agent for you.
Guidance from beginning to end
Once we have selected an agent, we will handle everything with them directly, from advertising through to contracts and the final inspection – saving you time and hassle.
We’ll be in frequent communication with you, to ensure you’re always fully informed and updated. We’ll also make sure your agent submits regular reports on the performance of all advertising activities, as well as general progress.
Review offers and provide advice
Once the offers come in, we will assess and talk you through them. With our extensive experience and intricate knowledge of the local market, we can provide reliable advice on what to do next. This will enable you to make an informed decision when it comes to the sale of your property.
Terms and conditions for your added protection
Our offer and contracts can be used in the process to provide protection for our clients. From checking that contracts are compliant through to liaising with the settlement agent and ensuring that the final inspection is complete, we’ll support you throughout the process.
What is a seller’s advocate?
Seller’s advocates (or vendor’s advocates) are independent agents who act exclusively for the seller of a property.
Unlike a sales agent, seller’s advocate is there to guide you through the sales process from beginning to end. The role of a seller’s advocate in Australia includes:
- Providing a written market appraisal of the property to establish market value.
- Sourcing the best real estate agent for your needs.
- Negotiating their commission and providing advice on their contract.
- Recommendations on the best method of sale.
- Evaluating the proposed sales and advertising plan and budget.
- Vetting and advising on all offers presented.

How do seller’s advocacy fees work?
Some seller’s advocates take a portion of the real estate agent’s commission, while others charge a fee directly to the vendor (usually about 0.5% of the sale price).
At Momentum Wealth, we charge market rate commission and then leverage our network of agents and work with the company and sales representative who best suit’s your needs and location of your property. The sub-agent is paid a major share of the commission, and Momentum Wealth retain a small share to oversee the process. The sub-agents we work with benefit from repeat business, not needing to market or look for the business, and having to work only with the buyers through the process. They are happy to take the lower rate for the overall benefits to them in the process.
