I have spent the last 2 weeks of my life on realestate looking at properties!
Its an absolute minefield.....
We had decided that we were gonna go to Glenelg and rent for 6 months, to be in a good location with plenty to do on the doorstep and give us time to get a feel for the place, but....
With the exchange rate at the minute that could really eat into our savings as its not exactly cheap and most the properties have hideous decor!
So with that in mind, what other suburbs have the appeal that Glenelg does?
We want to strike a balance between price and location, we want a decent property with shops and bars nearby, preferably near to the beach too.
Ive been watching alot of Wanted Down Under recently and the properties on that are WAY nicer than what i can find to rent in Adelaide, and the price they are selling for is alot less than the rental charges in Adelaide are warranting? Is it more expensive to rent in Australia than it is to mortgage?
Do the suburbs all have their own thing going on? Are there beachfront bars and restaurants in Henley, Grange, Hallett cove, Brighton and Seacliff etc?
We are in our 20's with no kids, so schools are not on the agenda, plus we dont need to consider work location.
So with that in mind, if you could choose anywhere in Adelaide, where would it be?
