Buying a property in Princes Hill 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 Princes Hill 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 Princes Hill 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.

Princes Hill Suburb Profile
The suburb of Princes Hill is part of the City of Yarra and is close to Melbourne’s CBD, just three kilometers away. It has a population of 2,126 as of 2016.
The suburb’s name was taken from the Prince of Wales. In 2003, it earned the title as “Chick City” for having the most number of single women compared to men in Melbourne. One of the first structures to be build in Princes Hill was a temporary building for the Church of England built in 1885.
By 1887, the Legislative Assembly took action in relation to purchasing a land at Prince’s Hill for the purpose of establishing a state school. Two years after, a state school opened with an initial 250 students. The opening was led by the Minister of Public Instruction. The state school was the sixth to be set up in the Carlton suburb area. Eventually, a police station was also established in Princes Hill.
Two schools are available in the area. The top primary school in the suburb is the Carlton North Primary School while the top secondary school is the Princes Hill Secondary College.
