Get Started

You might be wondering...

What's the catch?

We know this seems too good to be true. We hear it all the time. Our mission is to make homes more affordable. Sales commission makes up a small, yet sizable portion of your purchase, that’s what we give back to you.

How does Abodable make money?

We keep a reduced commission from each property. We give back the majority of the commission, operate our business lean & efficient so you can benefit.

We’ve found cheaper builders than what’s on Abodable.

No hidden costs. That’s our policy. We don’t refer to people who do half finished products or sneaky upsells after you’ve paid a deposit. Everything listed on Abodable is fully finished unless otherwise stated. This includes the turf, the driveway etc. Although this might seem a touch more expensive, it’s actually cheaper in the long run.

Is it only new property?

Yes. We only work with new property.

The Commission Refund

Can I use the commission refund as a deposit?

If this is your first home, absolutely. You won’t be able to use 100% of the commission as your deposit. Feel free to use the calculator on the property listing to determine how much you can use.

Is the price inflated to include the commission refund?

No, we choose to opt out of artificial inflation. In most properties, theres margin from efficiencies. This margin is used as the sales commission which we give back to you.

What are the costs to use the commission refund as a deposit?

You can't use 100% of the amount towards your deposit as there are a external fees. The final amount you can use depends on settlement date, type of property and how much other savings you may have.

Inclusive of the fees, in most cases you're still better off than paying the LMI.

How much will my refund be?

The commission refund will be displayed on each property like the tick below. You need to be logged in to see the amount you get back.

When will I receive the commission refund?

If you don’t use the commission refund as your deposit, you'll receive your refund within 7 days of settlement.

Where does the commission refund come from?

The refund comes from Abodable. This would've been our commission. However we pass this on to you, to make your home more affordable.

What restrictions are there?

None, any property you find on Abodable, is eligible for the commission refund. It doesn’t matter if this is your first home or 30th home. As long as you buy it from abodable, your eligible for it.
