Just curious what the average rent is per week in our I-Do population. I was just checking out the mortgage post, big reality check as to why we can't have a house yet!

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 smile.gif I think we got a good deal on this place, privately rented (ie our landlords DIY, no agent) and no problems.

We pay $210, which is reasonable for our area. Our home is a 3 bedroom, lockup garage, built-ins, ensuite, and big yard, about 10 years old, and close to CBD. Its perfect for our family smile.gif

We pay $310 for ours, which is a little above what I would like to be paying for this house.

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. smile.gif

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. biggrin.gif

We pay $250 here (wasnt sure which poll option to choose so didnt vote!)

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.

We Pay $400 per week in Narrabeen for a 2 brm (+ study) house, which is actually really excellent for this area. I havn't seen anything in this area for a good 12 months under $450. (Most being over $700pw) So I think we actaully have a bargain! We have huge yard, fully fenced, only 5 mins walk the the beach. smile.gif

We pay $320 for a 2 bedroom deco garden apartment in Bondi Beach. Ridiculously expensive for most of Australia, but actually quite cheap for Bondi biggrin.gif

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!

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!

We pay $260.00 for a three bedroom house in western sydney - decent sized backyard and double detached lock-up garage - It's quite a nice house but has no privacy from the neighbours espically since it is on the high side of the street.

I think ours is great value for money. $185 per week for a 3 brm (2 with BIRs), ensuite plus heaps of living area (one of our prerequisites) as well as a decent back yard and right opposite a park in a very family friendly area.

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

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!)
