We arrived in Adelaide on Friday, spent the weekend finding our feet and recovering from jet lag then started the search for a house to rent this morning. We are looking for either a 3 or 4 bed in Sheidow Park, Hallet Cove, Flagstaff Hill, and surrounding areas and are looking to pay $300 -350 per week. We went to look at one today and it was just awful - think we have been a bit spoilt at the moment as we are staying in a fantastic new 4 bed holiday home in Sheidow Park for 2 weeks which is well beyond our budget long term - but surely there must be something at least in a livable condition within our price range. The other concern we have is the rental application form you have to complete, it asks for references from previous land lords, but we have always owned our own home and have never rented before - I am really concerned that as we only have 2 weeks to find a place and we have no references we are really going to struggle.
I just wondered if anyone has or knows of someone who has a house for rent in or near to Sheidow Park? or within 30 minutes drive from the City? I am a nurse and have a reasonably well paid job at the R.A.H and my husband is a plumber and a plasterer so he will also be earning well eventually. Although we have not got references from landlords we have got an excellent credit history and I'm sure I could get several good character references!
Thanks very much
