Hi. We're arriving in Adelaide on a 475 visa on 10th Jan 2012. We don't have jobs lined up yet but want to find a rental as quickly as possible in the Flagstaff Hill/Aberfoyle Park are as wife will be trying to find a job, preferably at Flinders Uni. Here's a few questions then:
Does anybody know of any rentals availale in that area at that time around $400 pw?
What are the chances of us getting a rental through an agency if we're not employed at the time? Seems like a bit of a catch 22 for us in that we want to get a rental asap and get kids settled in school asap before getting jobs finalised (although if we can get something in the meantime so much the better) but I don't know where an agency would stand regarding references/credit scoring etc. How do we convince them that we are polite, careful professionals with a lovely family and that we will be working in good jobs? Would paying 6 months rent up front help?
Any advice on how to deal with finding a rental will be much appreciated!!!
