So I landed in Adelaide a couple of days ago and after a little sleep and some confusion with the downstairs/upstairs of Woolworths on Rundle Street I've started home hunting.
I'm in a bit of a strange situation, my partner is going to be coming to join me for a month/three months on and off, but not permanently. For those times I'd like a place to ourselves, but otherwise I'd prefer sharing, just for a bit of company. The places I've been looking at that I like are better suited to a budget of 2 as well - so around $400 - $450 a month. A place on my own that doesn't seem awful is still hitting the $300. I'm hoping to get somewhere in the CBD, or perhaps Norwood / Melbourne St area since they've been my favourites so far.
I'd love to hear people's thoughts on if Ill be able to get short term renters to take the second room on and off for periods of a couple weeks / max 5-6 months. I'd even be happy enough for singles/couples who are on this site to stay when they first arrive, and maybe just charge a bit more than half for the short time period.
What do you think, is it a crazy plan where I'm putting myself to a lot of bother, and potential hassle / less than safe situation? Would you be happy staying somewhere like this when you're first arriving?
Any thoughts/ideas much appreciated!
Thanks a million!
