ETA And do you think you're getting value for money?
We pay about $170 for a two bedroom houselett (unattached) in a group of 6 (strata title). Virtually no backyard but the house is in good shape (about 15 years old), a fabulous position (for uni, public transport etc) and I like it here apart form having neighbours so close I think we got a good deal on this place, privately rented (ie our landlords DIY, no agent) and no problems.

It is a 3 bedroom, builtins, brick, big yard, and big bar/rumpus room close to public transport & the city.
I am looking at moving - I have found some about 5 more minutes away, and closer to Jamies work for $300 for a new 4 bed house with ensuite - I want!

We get it really cheap because Shane's parents own it. Joy.
I want to live here for the rest of my life. I love it. Now if I could just get rid of the backpackers.......Perfection.

Its a 1yr old 3br, 2bathroom, 2 living areas place. It is the perfect home aside from the fact that because of all its windows, in summer its an oven. Its great in winter! But there is no aircon and its an oven in summer.

It's a lovely place, rather small, but gorgeous and has a fabulous garden. We also live in a small, well maintained block with nice neighbours - which is a bit of a rarety around these parts! Like Chantelle, I'd love to get rid of the backpackers in the surrounding area!

May your feet tread the roads of a long delight,
May your eyes see beauty, May your soul see light.
May your lips know a smile, and your heart a song,
and love go with you your whole life long.

We are also quite central to shopping centres and close enough to the city centre (Perth)
The house is quite old (and as such comes with a number of commonly reported problems) but its also close to family and close enough to the airport for our liking. Adam is FIFO so its important that it doesn't take him ages to get to the airport

| We pay $285 a wk for a 3x2 detached villa in the most northern suburb of Canberra.|
Rent in this city is an abolute joke!
and here's the punchline.
we pay $420 a week for a 2 bedroom apartment.
it is however, near lake burley griffin, nice restaurant strips, and near the city and parliamentary triangle.
we were the first tenants in after it was built - about 2 1/2 years ago. the building won architectual design awards, and we have one of the penthouse apartments (granted, the smallest of the three!). it's really nicely finished, in terms of marble and stainless steel benchtops, top of the line appliances, spa bath etc. so while it seems we have the most expensive rent in i-do land, it's worth it - particularly compared to some of the places you can get in this suburb for $350pw, which have NONE of the nice bits to them!
we absolutely love it, and the only reason we're leaving is because we've bought a house (owning dirt is more seductive than you think!)
