Buying a property in Cheltenham can be a daunting and difficult process. For many of us, it is something we only do a few times in our lives.

A buyers advocate (also known as a buyers agent or property finder) can be an enormous help to make it easy to buy a home or investment property by:

  • removing the stress and frustration of buying a home
  • saving you time and allowing you to get your weekends back
  • saving you from having to deal with the tactics of real estate agents

Questions such as “where can I find a home I can afford”, “am I paying too much?”, “where can I find someone to bid for me at auction” are easily answered with the assistance of a buyer’s agent specialising in the Cheltenham area.

A buyers advocate can manage the entire buying process for you or, where you have found a property, negotiate on your behalf with the agent or bid at auction for you.

WE MAKE IT EASY to get your weekends back and find the perfect home or investment property in Cheltenham for a LOW FLAT FIXED FEE. We guide you through the entire process, from selecting a home, market appraisal, negotiating/bidding to the final inspection, and help you purchase with confidence.

We also offer a service for vendors selling in Cheltenham. We offer our Vendor Advocacy service to our sellers at NO CHARGE.

Cheltenham Suburb Profile

The Cheltenham suburb in Melbourne is situated 19 kilometers south-east of the central business district. Part of the Kingston City local government area, it has a population of 20,292 as of 2011.

The Cheltenham area dates back to 1852 when it was still part of the estates in the Moorabbin parish developed by Josiah Holloway. Formerly named Acre Village, lots were sold between the years 1853 and 1854. It was during that time that the township was given the name Cheltenham.

By 1857, the post office opened but it was only in the 1880s when the township experienced major deveopment. The Cheltenham park followed in 1872 and was used for cricket and other recreational activities.
