Fletchers – welcome to the gateway to the North Balwyn Village

Fletchers North Balwyn Real Estate Agents has been the flagship building and anchor business of the North Balwyn Village since 1939.

The North Balwyn Village Traders Association is proud to have Fletchers sponsoring this year’s ‘Merry & Bright’ Village promotion, where 20 lucky people will win a $100 gift voucher they can spend at any shop at the North Balwyn Village.

Fletchers, located at 61 Doncaster Road, is the face of the North Balwyn Village shops as it sits at the gateway to the village on the corner of Burke Road, Bulleen Road and Doncaster Road.

Fletchers Customer Experience Manager Caroline Dawborn says since their landmark office was built on the corner of Bulleen and Doncaster Roads in 1939, Fletchers has always been humbled to share in the fabric of what makes this neighborhood so special, home, family, food and friends – the central pillars of this festive season.

“As we witness lots of change in the world, we find comfort in knowing that the drivers behind why people buy property in communities such as ours are alive and well.

“Here, in Balwyn North, we collectively champion our family-run and small business owners as well as raise a tribe of people who love to give back to the village in which they live and work.

“There is a strong sense of community in Balwyn North. It boasts premier education facilities, local sporting opportunities and authentic connections born from supporting our local traders. We look forward to welcoming you into our village over the festive season and beyond,” Caroline Dawborn says.

Fletchers North Balwyn has been named the suburb winner in the Rate My Agent, Agent of the Year Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2022.

How to be savvy when choosing your suburb

Finding the ideal location is one of the secrets of smart buying – you can renovate your property, landscape the garden and even install a swimming pool, but there’s little you can do about your suburb.

Factoring in your lifestyle needs is essential whether you’re buying your first property or dream home.

While your budget can restrict your choice of locations, it should still be a priority, especially for young families who need to be near schools, or downsizers who find comfort in having easy access to a medical centre or hospital. Whatever you need or desire, you must build all of them into your approach.

Selecting a location means creating a list of “must-have” and “nice-to-have” features and looking beyond the suburb to extras such as whether you want a quiet street or cul de sac, to be near public transport, close to shops and schools, and within a suitable commuting distance to work.

Below are some elements that will help you select an ideal area for your next home.

Good Investment

Location is a crucial element in determining a property’s value. If you buy in an up-and-coming area, or one in the process of being gentrified, you’re likely to make an excellent investment over a five to 10-year period.

Premium Price

If you’re targeting a sought-after suburb, expect to pay extra. That’s not necessarily a bad investment, but you should be aware that you’ll be trading the size or quality of your next home for the area where you wish to live.

Lifestyle Needs

Prioritise areas that offer the amenities and services important to you. If you’re a young professional, you’ll likely want to be near cafes and restaurants and have easy access to transport. The proximity of schools often sways young families.

Future Plans

Check out what’s happening in the local area before deciding on a purchase. Local development approvals may affect the value of your property, especially if you’ve bought a unit. The completion of a nearby apartment block may affect the value of your unit, at least in the short term. On the other hand, you could be on a winner if a train station is being built down the road.

When you do find the home you would like to purchase, let the selling agent know to ensure that you’re kept up to date with any offers made, price changes etc.
