We have been offered to swap our 1 month short-term rental from Seaton to Hallet Cove, the property in Hallet Cove seems a lot nicer property than the one in Seaton.
Problem is my wife has got a job a north Calvary Hospital, which is North of the CBD and she will be commencing employment two weeks into our 1 month rental period. I have also gained employment in the North as well but I can drive and hopefully have transport means, so travelling for me is not a problem.
My wife Jane has gained a job at North Calvary Hospital, which is in the North of the CBD and I have been given jobs also in the North (Elizabeth Vale) North East (Royston Park). Edwardstown and another good job offer in Woodville, for City of Charles Sturt Council. Not made my mind up which one to take up yet. I do fancy the Woodville job offer. Hence us wanting to find short-term rental in the West/CBD region as we will hopefully be residing in that area once we have gained our long-term rental.
We are willing to consider the swap but we will need some questions to be answered honestly before we can consider swapping. My wife does not drive hence she will have to use public transport. What are the transport links like from the South to the North. The cost implications. The length of time travelling. Most importantly is the transport availability? Jane will be working shifts, starting at 06:45 am, also starting and finishing at 10:30pm. We are wondering about how can she get to work via public transport at those times and/or can return home if we are situated in Hallet Cove. Jane will be commencing her job two weeks into our rental at Seaton or Hallet Cove, not sure when I need to start. In addition we have a 17 year old and a 21 yr old who would like to be nearer all the action so to speak and much easier links to get back home after a night out, etc. Summing it all up Seaton is the perfect location for us to accommodate our needs for the first month of arrival and probably on a longer term.
We are happy to swap but its just the transport links and the distance to our employment and where all the action is. CBD and Glenelg for instance. I will not be able to afford a car immediately, so I will be using public transport as well. My Son will want to enjoy the nightlife at Glenelg and Hindley Street as well. I must admit I believe the cost of rental and the price of housing is cheaper and better value for your money in the South and we have seriously consider Hallet Cove as somewhere to live, so its not out of the question.
I look forward to your responses
