After waiting for months to get a date for our move to Adelaide, we are now arriving on 17th January 2010. We have temporary accommodation for two weeks in centre of Adelaide but our 2 kids are going to Aberfoyle Park High School, and we're having trouble finding rental property as we're told we have to view it first. Does anyone know of any companies that we could use to find a property, getting more and more stressed by the day!!
Hi might be worth you checking out the domain & real estate agents websites, from that you can look at the area & call the agents & list with them. They wont give you anything before you get here but the time from an open (when they hold an open house for potential tenants) is relative quick, normally about a week to sort out the paperwork & then you get the keys. I wouldn't think there are many furnished options in that area, but it may be worth you renting a short term house till you get somewhere, the agents will be more willing to let you know of any short term houses they have on there books, keep us informed of how you get on, housing is always a big worry before anyone gets here. Also you can have everything in place, eg references, etc! Steph
I would defo say to view a house 1st before renting it. We secured a rental the 2nd day we arrived but still took 2 weeks for the paperwork and checks were done and could move in.

Quiet location and close to most amenities. We are hoping to vacate around the 15th January should you be interested. Only problem is I don't know if you would be able to sign the contract without viewing it...or whether you would want to??
If you are interested, please get in touch.
Good luck anyway!

Agents will not give you the time of day anyway.
