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.

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
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...

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.

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

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.
Maybe they are supposed to run wild until they find someone - just as wild - to run with

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

Yes there is a very low vacancy rate at the moment, in Sydney at least

One bedroom, small bathroom, no laundry or facilities, but we get by without them (laundromats! )... 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 ).
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 poor thing has to sit down to wash his hair!!

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!
