I have just registered on this and discovered there is so much useful info here ! My family and I (wife, 2 kids 4&5) are thinking of making the move from the UK to Adelaide in September this year. I wanted to get some advice of how people have gone about getting their very first rental property in Adelaide when still in the UK. Without physically seeing a property, have you opted for a short term rental or simply taken a risk with a longer term rental from something that looks good on a web site? Ideally trying to avoid having to live in a hotel or having to change rental home after the first few weeks of arrival.
Also can anyone recommend any good contacts that can help find a good family home whilst still in the UK? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. We are not sure on areas but like Hallett Cove, Unley, Parkside, Burnside as potential areas following a visit last year.
Finally I would also appreciate thoughts on whether to sell our house in the UK now or rent it out for 1-2 years? What have you done? What worked, what did not.
