Perth suburb Como is attracting a country crowd

Agent Select / Property News / Perth suburb Como is attracting a country crowd

Australian real estate shows no sign of slowing down, with 79 per cent of auctioned properties sold last weekend.

One of Perth's city-centric suburbs is bringing a little bit of the farm into the city with one home in every street believed to be owned by a rural family.

Properties in Como, 5km from the CBD, are being bought up by an unusual number of country purchasers for their proximity to the city, amenities and universities.

Bourkes Property agent Karen Firth said the suburb, which ranked at number two on the southern area top performers list after 15.9 per cent median house price growth, had become popular among "farmer buyers" looking for a city base.

"Como is smack bang in the middle of three universities and has built up a bit of a reputation among farmers," Ms Firth said.

"Often they're looking for something to use as an investment property, then move their kids into later when they start attending university. Because of its closeness to amenities Como seems to fit all their criteria."
