Ok here I am again sober!

We pay $530 a week for a huge (by japan standards ENORMOUS, VAST) warehousy type space with 4 bedrooms and an out the back area (all concrete, but we jazzed it up with plants)....It's in Osaka, where you could pay close to that for a shoe-box...

It's under a covered mall, so it's quite dark, ok very dark, and we have 2 train lines - one directly over us (actually we are kinda under the platform!) and one coming in from the side. We also have a stack of korean bbq restaurants under us, and an 'adult salon'!!!

It's so roomy thoughm we love it, and the best thing is two couples live here, so we are saving a pretty penny on rent.
Let us ride the wave together all of our days...I promise to never let you go

We pay $240 a week (well, we pay $160, my BIL pays $80) for a four bedroom brick house with a granny flat and double lock up garage that's only five minutes walk from a major shopping centre and bus terminal. It's old but in great condition and our landlords love us so they haven't put the rent up in ages. laugh.gif The neighbours aren't too bad - mostly retired but some younger ones moving in and we don't get too many hassles about the parties. biggrin.gif

We pay $220 a week in Townsville. We have a large modern townhouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and.........a big bathtub!!. We live a couple of streets away from a major shopping centre (well major for Townsville!!) and close to uni and hospital.

This is pretty good for Townsville prices.

Does anyone else feel like they are writing an ad for the paper desribing their home?

We pay $300.00 per week (which is an absolute bargain!!) for a two bedroom federation style house. Its set on 750sqm block with a big back yard for the dog, floorboards throughout, ornate ceilngs and fireplaces, separate lounge and dining, new country style kitchen and modern bathroom plus parking for two cars.

The only reason why we got such a bargain is because we pay the Landlord cash directly and we rented it when the market was bad about 2 years ago and locked ourselves into a lease!

Not looking forward to the day when we actually have to pay off a mortgage...I think it will be a rude shock.

When we were in Sydney, we paid $330 a week in Wollstonecraft. It was 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms but very dark and the train line was like right in our back yard. The noise didn't worry me though, I got used to it.

*wins* hahaha i have the cheapest house so far!

We pay $150/wk for an older style 3bdrm dbl/trpl l/u gge house on a huge block (quarter acre, maybe?) in a lovely street in an older suburb. Local shops less than 5mins walk away, big shopping centre less than 5 mins drive. We were prepared to pay a lot more, but at the time our old lease expired, this was the only decent house with dbl gge, min 3 bdrms, accepts pets, near transport and near Naths Mum that was going. I'm so glad tho, i LOVE it here! It has all the amenities/facilities we need and has the feel of a small town. *suburblove* lol

we pay $270 a week for a small 2 bedroom house in North Ryde. We are allowed dogs here which means we will be staying here for a while yet, but the house is old and starting to fall apart. At least it is close to transport and much cheaper than anything else around the area or closer to my work.

We pay $230 p/w for a 7 year old, three bed/two bathroom/SLUG townhouse, and despite being in a complex, we've actually got a pretty decent sized, private backyard. (The pool is a bonus too!)

We're not even a minute away from the Motorway (and we don't hear any car noise at all! ohmy.gif ), two minutes from Dreamworld and our nearest Westfields is five minutes away. Our neighbours are fantastic.

We're actually contemplating approaching the owner sometime soon about us buying it off him!

Our unit is $165 per week. It's a near new 3x2 with aircon, remote control garage and WIRs in Mandurah WA. We're lucky though, we private rent and our landlords are great! The only thing is that we have nasty old neighbours that are always having a go at us sad.gif
