You've just got to keep looking about and when you get here do a lot of open houses and apply apply apply.....which is difficult to do from the UK...keep looking on here though, there are often leases being broken and you may be able to get ahead of the game...it's very competitive the rental game...YOU are the one being scrutinised....you may love a house, but you may not get it...so be prepared to maybe offer the agent a better deal (ie 6months up front or something).
hi hazel we pay $210 per week but we stay in Victor Harbor...too far to commute to the city, Mount compass is generally cheaper rents than us cos there is very little there. Aldinga more expensive it has lots of building going on though and have never looked in Willunga to be homest I would imagine it would be similar to Aldinga though. In general the further you are from the city the cheaper the rents and the less competition...we applied for our favourite and got it no probs good luck fiona
We pay $260/wk for a 3 bed house in Huntfield Heights (about 30km south of city). It's not too bad, but I've seen better places but you'd be expecting to pay closer to $350/wk. At least we have Air-con, couldn't live without that!!
As for the bills, it's about $250-300/qtr each for gas & electricity. Broadband/phone package is about $100/mth for a 1.5Mb connection (pretty basic by uk standards - I see BT have rolled out a 40Mb connection for £19.99!).
I guess in the end it's not about the money, but the beaches & good weather etc...
I hope all of the replies have reassured you. We pay 350 dollars per week for an old, but fab 4 bed house with amazing seaviews in Hallett Cove. Cheap for what you get I think. Good luck with the house hunting.
