Buying a property in Oak Park 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 Oak Park 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 Oak Park 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 Oak Park. We offer our Vendor Advocacy service to our sellers at NO CHARGE.
Oak Park Suburb Profile
Oak Park is one of Melbourne’s suburbs located 11 kilometers north of the CBD. It has a population of 6,205 as of 2016 and is part of the City of Moreland.
Formerly a part of the John Pascoe Fawkner estate, the area was slowly developed and housing were constructed in the 1950s. From then on, more development took place such as infrastructures and shopping districts.
Oak Park today boasts of various facilities including a shopping center on Winifred Street, a sports centre which is home to the Oak Park Football Club and the Therry Penola Football Club and a Moonee Ponds trail for cyclists. Two nature reserves including parks are also in place along the Moonee Ponds Creek. Cafes and pubs in Pascoe Vale are also within walking distance.
Two schools are available in Oak Park. The Oak Park Primary School is a government education facility while the Saint Frances de Sales School is a private one.
In terms of housing, 71 percent are owned while 29 percent are rented. Families and singles make up the huge portion of the population.
Family homes that date back to the 1960s and the 1970s make up the original housing stock in the suburb. These are mostly made from weatherboard and brick.
Many homes have undergone renovation to keep pace with today’s expected standards. Quality homes are also available on larger blocks.
Oak Park can be accessed via the freeways and public transportation particularly the Oak Park railway station. This station is on the Cragieburn railway line.
