Published: February 23rd, 2016

When you’re in the process of deciding where to buy or build the home of your dreams, first and foremost, you have to factor in the location. If you enjoy life in the great outdoors, but at the same time want to be close to all the conveniences, the following suburbs in Perth are ideal locations for first home buyers in search of house and land packages.

These suburbs have great schools and community centres within close proximity, and are great for young and growing families. If you are a first-home buyer looking to get a foot in the door while still being within reasonable distance to the city, check out The Top 6 Suburbs to Consider When Purchasing Your First Home.

1. Byford

The south-eastern suburb is located only 33km from Perth CBD and 15 minutes from the Kwinana Freeway. Situated at the base of the Darling Scarp, Byford offers the perfect balance of a tranquil lifestyle while still being close to the Byford Town Centre, schools, shopping centres, transport and medical services.

2. Baldivis

Set in a natural environment close to the vibrant Baldivis town centre, this suburb is located 46km south of Perth and 11km southeast of Rockingham. Composed of occasional wetlands as well as landscaped parks, Baldivis is quickly becoming one of the most sought after locations south of the river.

4. Henley Brook

Located adjacent to Ellenbrook, close to the stunning Swan Valley, Henley Book is another great suburb near the city. With local schools and plenty of green spaces, this is a great suburb to live in.

5. Southern River
