Buying a property in North Melbourne 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 North Melbourne 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 North Melbourne for a LOW FLAT FIXED FEE.

North Melbourne Suburb Profile
One suburb of Melbourne near the Central Business District is North Melbourne. Situated just two kilometers north-west of CBD, this suburb has a population of 14,940 as of 2016.
Originally named Hotham after the governor of Victoria Charles Hotham, it used to be a working class area and one of the first Victoria towns to become a municipality. It is most noted for its Victorian architecture, commercial and industrial areas as well as its cosmopolitan people.
It was in August 1887 when the name Hotham was changed to North Melbourne town. At that time, the town hall and the metropolitan meat market were already in existence. By the 1890s, the tram routes had covered the suburb just walking distance from the Arden Street Oval.
Through the years, the suburb’s population increased overcrowding the area. This prompted the proposal to put up government housing development projects which were completed by the 1960s.
Errol Street is the main shopping area of the North Melbourne suburb. Situated here as well as in Victoria Street are cafes, restaurants, clothing shops, boutiques and other commercial retail stores.
Demographically, the suburb’s population is a mix of migrants. The latest to live in the area are refugees from Somalia and Eritrea.
Most types of housing in North Melbourne are the old Victorian terrace houses. Some are warehouse conversions and low-rise apartments. The 1990s saw the conversion of many old factories and warehouses into loft-style apartments. Eventually, medium size apartments were built starting in the year 2000.
In terms of accessibility, the suburb has three major roads namely Flemington Road as well as Elizabeth and Victoria Streets. It is also serviced by several tram routes – 59 (Airport West), 57 (West Maribyrnong) and 55 (West Coburg) and a railway station is in place in the Flemington Bridge. Buses are another public transportation option.
