Buying a property in Watsonia 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

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.

Watsonia Suburb Profile
Watsonia is a suburb of Melbourne situated 16 kilometers northeast of the CBD. It is a small community with a population of 5,214 as of 2016 and belongs to the local government area of the City of Banuyle.
Named after Frank Watson, a property developer and landowner, the Wurundjeri people were the original inhabitants of Watsonia of the area.
Watson purchased the Grace Park area in the early 20th century and subdivided the property for housing in 1924. However, it was only in the 1940s when more properties were bought as prices became more affordable.
Frank Watson was instrumental in the development of the suburb. Together with oter landowners, he shouldered the construction of a railway station as a way to attract more property investors. By June 1924, the Watsonia railway station was opened while the post office was opened 10 years later.
One of the popular landmarks in Watsonia is the Simpson Army Barracks. It was originally known as the Watsonia Military Camp during the Second World War. By 1951, the land surrounding the camp was bought for the extension of the barracks.
Schools are also available in the suburbd. These include the Watsonia Primary School, Greensborough College, Parade College and Loyola College. The Latrobe Uni and RMIT are nearby as well.
Sports enthusiasts won’t be disappointed as the suburb has the Watsonia Football Club, an Australian Rules football team that competes in the Northern Football League.
The presence of public transport also makes Watsonia very accessible. It has a major train while bus routes also service the area.
