Our place is definately above the $350 range..but we don't pay that...we don't even pay that a fortnight..because we get subsidised through the defence force. smile.gif
Definatly a force benefit. We are very lucky that way. At one stage I was living back home in a brand new 3 bedroom house and H2B was living in a brand new apartment in St Leonards and we were lucky to be paying 300 for the both of them, if that a fortnight.

Theres no way I could justify spending the kind of money we would have to a week here otherwise. Not on someone elses property. I could never get used to that. sad.gif

We pay $275 a week for a detached post-war 2 bedroom house with a HUGE back garden in Melbourne. I think the rent's pretty good for where we are - we probably could have got a bigger place for the same a bit further out, but the train station is behind our back fence (and near silent), there are fantastic shops/PO/library/banks 5 minutes walk away and the house had wooden floorboards and we fell in love with it immediately.

After years in London, the rent is a steal between 2 of us but at the moment Simon doesn't have work so it isn't so easy for me at the moment sad.gif

We have a deposit but no way could pay off a mortgage at the moment - I'm getting a bit panicky that we will ever be able to...

ohmy.gif Sigh we live in Sydney City itself near central for that we are paying $265 for a little one bedroom apartment, build in combined living/dinning and kitchen with laundry fixings in bathroom.

At least it has a carspot underground.

Has anyone noticed how hard it is to find anything at the moment. The only reason I got this one was we happened to be in our real estate agents office at the exact moment their boss rang with a new apartment opening up. It wasn't even advertised and there was a lot of interest in it.

We're in SW Syd and pay $225 per week for a 3 bedroom brick house, with 2 reverse cycle air conditioners, LUG and combined living/dining....

Not really where we wanted to live, but it's really quiet around here and there's a massive paddock at the back of us, so we have heaps of privacy

We pay $315 per week for our 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom unit in Willoughby.

The owners painted it all, put new carpet in the hallway and bedrooms and polished the floorboards in the Lounge/Dining before we moved in. The block is older, but it has a balcony - and after living in a one bedroom shoebox with no Balcony in Crows Nest, this feels like a palace.

Well we pay $100 a week rent.. The house is 4 bedrooms, highset, double garage, built in downstairs with a 2nd toilet.

Great rent, but the downside to it all - We rent from the in-laws... (Need I say more)

We pay $150 a week to my parents. We rent out their investment property and since they could probably get more than that I count myself lucky esp since we are paying off their mortgage and not someone we don't know. I can't wait to buy though we are rapidly outgrowing our place!!

we started out paying $115pw... its gone up to $120pw after 2 yrs... biggrin.gif

One bedroom, small bathroom, no laundry or facilities, but we get by without them (laundromats! biggrin.gif )... top floor, balcony etc... in a well maintained building of 15...

We are VERY close to public transport (one street back from Sydney Road trams - about 200m max), and trains are on the other side of Sydney Road. About 100m to our nearest IGA shopping centre, and Sydney Road of course has heaps of fantastic cheap restuarants (when we budget to go out biggrin.gif ).

Easy for me to get to uni, and fairly easy by public transport for hubby to get to his, although it takes a bit longer... but there is a bus that runs down the bottom of the street. ...

So its particularly cheap for what we get... average in this area is about $150pw for 1bedroom... our landlady likes to keep the rent down so its occupied most of the time...

One main problem? Our shower is positioned so low on the wall, that it only comes to hubby's chest blink.gif poor thing has to sit down to wash his hair!! biggrin.gif

Sounds like all the showers we used in Vietnam. Now I know I'm taller than your average vietnamese person but one only came up to my waist and it was attached to the wall, no handheld option blink.gif

I had a spew about having my privacy invaded in the sauna a week ago which sent me off looking at rental properties online... needless to say we are going to be here in this place for a while!

We pay $225 for a small 2 bedroom unit in Coorparoo (Bne). It is one in a block of 6. Ours was renovated a few years ago, so at least it is a little modern. I've never been inside any of the other units, however from what I've glimpsed ours is the nicest. We have an itty-bitty balcony from which you can glimpsethe Storey Bridge, thus meaning we have 'city views' and the higher rent, lol. We had two weeks notice that Daniel was being transferred, so unfortunately we had no time to find somewhere cheaper. Funny how fate works though, where we are is a 15 minute walk to the train station, only takes Daniel 10 minutes to drive to work on Queen St and my chiropractor is right around the corner so we'll stay here until Daniel's next transfer.
