Hi all, Hope you are all safe and well (and everyone back home is too). My family and I relocated from the UK to Adelaide (Henley Beach) early this year (2020) and have been settling in since. We've been trying to find a place to rent in the "competitive" housing market here in Adelaide; naturally with a kid and dogs it seems pretty discriminatory straight off the bat which makes the outrageous process of renting even more so, mass house viewings, umpteen forms to complete, referencing, payslips and seemingly no rights as a tenant don't sit too well with me but I'm told that this along with many other things is simply "how it is over here". We're actively looking for a long-term rental ideally with the following: 3-4 bedrooms 1-2 living areas 2 bathrooms Aircon and preferably West of the CBD. Must accept a family with a child (14) and two small dogs. Zero interest in mass viewings, long waits, long applications or other such none-sense, if your place ticks the above then we're happy to view and move around January 2021, we're a very clean, respectful family who are just interested in getting on with things, life's too short for the none-sense. Thanks for reading. MonstrousChicken

This report into housing has been released recently, produced by BIS Oxford Economics for QBE Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance. You may read the report on their website or download the full interactive PDF report here. Short on time? Watch their short video instead. If you want to read more download the PDF and click on the titles on the contents page to navigate to the parts you care about. Where did this report come from? QBE is one of the two main lenders mortgage insurance providers in Australia - the other being Genworth. BIS Oxford Economics is a large macroeconomics and industry forecast provider. The two companies have partnered for the last 17 years to generate these reports. What is LMI? Lenders mortgage insurance (LMI) is an insurance you pay if you have less than 20% deposit (i.e. you borrow more than 80%) for a property purchase. LMI protects the lender, it does not protect you. If you put in less cash, it is a riskier transaction for the lender. Hence they hedge their bets. If you can't pay, they will chase you for the funds, and they submit a claim through the LMI provider to try recoup their losses. That's right, you pay for the lender's insurance premium so they are protected from you! Normally the LMI premium can be added on top of the the base loan amount (capitalised). Or you can save like crazy to have a 20% deposit, or use a guarantor. Are their predictions for the future accurate? Who knows, I don't have a crystal ball either. This is an outlook report - an insight into the property market in Australia. A predication is still essentially an educated guess, but an interesting read nonetheless. I am providing it here as one source of information. Make of it what you may.
I wish someone had explained this to me when I arrived: -there are over 350 suburbs in Adelaide. -many have very similar names (such as Marsden and Marden etc etc) -many have no relationship whatsoever to their UK counterparts (Felixstowe, for instance, is nowhere near the sea, and Picadilly is nowhere near the CBD) -in addition to the "City of Adelaide" there are a whole bunch oh local councils that insist on calling themselves cities. A lot of these have re-amalgamated over the last twenty years (-such as "The City of St Peters, Norwood and Payneham" ) .These Cities often include very small suburbs that are not mentioned in the title. Some suburbs are dissected by major arterial routes, and are really quite different from one part to the other. So, If you are buying a property, try this : get a good map ( -not a UBD), sit down, and work out -where the work is -where the schools are -what are the transport options -where the shopping is etc etc Then use your map to look for property, and not a list of (-often meaningless-) suburb names John B
