About SOMO

SOMO was started as a vision to help people into a space of their own no matter the size, style, or location. And with so many options to choose from, we wanted to make the process easy – and fun! – by bringing together all the different first-home buyer options in one, convenient spot.

The good news is that Perth’s property landscape has changed over the years. You no longer have to settle for a ‘one-size-fits-all’ home.

In fact, with SOMO, you can choose to live close to the coast, in the hills, north of the river, south of city – the list goes on! And your first home doesn’t have to have three-bedrooms and two bathrooms. It can be a townhouse, villa, unit, apartment, or even a house boat!

As our city has grown, so have the housing options on offer, giving people more choice to live in a space that suits their life stage and lifestyle. Many of us still rent or live with our parents (rent free if we’re lucky!) and trying to figure out when is the right time to buy, where is the right place to live, and what does the right place look like. That’s where we believe SOMO can help.
