      Furnished v unfurnished 3 bed properties - cost and availability

      We are hoping to move to Adelaide around May or June 2015, relocating from KL for my husband's work. We have hardly any furniture. What is the difference in price/availability of furnished v unfurnished properties in the Eastern Suburbs? We would be looking there first due to proximity to my husband's work. What is generally the standard of furnishing in furnished properties? Do they include TVs generally? Do unfurnished properties include large kitchen appliances like washing machines and fridges? Is there much good second hand furniture available and any recommendations about where to find it?

      THanks for your help with my questions!

      For longer leases they are usually unfurnished. They will have a cooker and often a dishwasher. Occasionally there might be a built in fridge freezer too, other than that usually no tv washer etc.
      furnished lets are more expensive and usually shorter leases up to 6 months. Have a look on real estate and domain for properties

      Furnished short term accommodation costs a lot more usually over $550 per week and include all the large appliances and small things like crockery and cutlery. This is good to get a sense of the area and if you like the accommodation.
      Unfurnished accommodation is a lot cheaper but requires a six-12 month signed lease and you need to find your own furniture and small goods.
      K-Mart is good for small things and target is good for bedding. There are second hand shops and new electrical appliances on Port Road Hindmarsh
      Good luck

      You will pay around $550 to $700 for a furnished place and around $350 to $400 for an unfurnished.
      Furnished places should have everything including internet and phone. Check to see what heating and cooling they have.

      When we moved here we chose a place that had been around for a while, had great reviews and the owner had spent a lot of money getting their property ready. When we looked around comparing places it was obvious that some places looked and sounded dodgy.
      It's a good idea to have a look to see if the rental business has a licence, an Australian Business Number ( check it here http://abr.business.gov.au/) and whether they can be bothered to spend the money on a website. If they can't be arsed and are out for a quick buck you could get stung. The ATO (Australian Taxation Office) has a good link for rental property owners https://www.ato.gov.au/General/Prope...al-properties/
