With so much to love and so much to offer in this beautiful northern suburb, let us tell you why you should be considering the houses for sale in Balcatta for your first home.

Above all, you can’t fault its location. Travel just 20 minutes north on the Mitchell Freeway from the Perth CBD, and you’ll find houses for sale in Balcatta. Trying to lower your ecological footprint? Why not grab a quick 5-minute lift to Stirling Station and hop on the train- it will get you there even faster.

Did someone say water? A first home close to the coast is often essential for many homeowners in WA, so we believe if you love a good surf or a sunbake, you will appreciate the smooth 10-minute drive to beautiful Trigg Beach. If calmer waters are calling for you (and the big swell or catching a wave is not your thing), there are multiple more relaxed options, like Mettams Pool for a snorkel or Scarborough for a swim, only a short distance away.

Residents living in Balcatta describe the suburb as friendly and safe, surrounded by families and couples. As a first home buyer, you will fit right in with the local community, with over 30 per cent of its residents being independent youths or maturing and established owners. This makes it the perfect place to set up your future with a first homeowner house and land package in Perth. Plus who knows, maybe you’ll love it so much that one day you’ll be a part of the 15 per cent of established couples and families in this suburb!

We have to mention that this vast suburb isn’t short on amenities, with a mix of beautiful residential, retail and commercial areas to cater for every need. From cars to cakes and even carpets – there’s a store for everyone. Jump in the car and in under 10 minutes will arrive at the recently renovated Karringyup Shopping Centre or if you’re looking for something closer to home, there is also a local shopping complex.
