Is this salary enough for Adelaide - to all Adelaidians

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Etienne

    Firstly I dont know if its Adelaidians or Adelaiders :huh:

     

    My wife and I have SS and planned to move to lovely Adelaide in June 2011, but recently had a job interview, and it went VERY well. They offered a little over 100k (AUD) pa plus superannution. So I might be out there much sooner now.

     

    My question is if this is a decent salary for Adelaide, and would it be enough for comfortable living? We would initially have to rent, and would like to live close-ish to the city centre. We do not yet have kids (so no expense there), but we will most likely buy a car when out there.

     

    I have checked a online salary calculator so more or less know what the net salary will be, but no idea all the costs I need o takeinto account. My wife will also eventually work.

     

    Any advise greatly appreaciated :notworthy:

    That's a good wage to have coming in :)

     

    A small family could live comfortably on that depending on your outgoings.

    As a really rough average, a lot of jobs are around the $50k for skilled.

    We are surviving on less than half of that, 3 kids, we do get the family tax credits which help, but we getting on great, dont miss out on anything we want.

    I'd be signing up now......Here's a guide....first year dentist grads earn around $65K, first yr docs, $45000ish. On that amount you will be able to live very comfortably, but it depends what your tastes are of course.

    Hi ALL

     

    Thanks for the kind advise. I thought as much. My predicament is that they pretty much want me to get out there NOW. That is near impossible as I have a notice period here, etc etc etc.

     

    And to Justin, Etienne = French Hugenot, defo NOT French :-)

    It depends on if you bring any money with you. If you don't and want a nice house nearish the cbd with decent neighbours (EG Unley) That's gonna cost 700K +. 100K pa won't pay for that.......

    Hi,

     

    We will not be coming over with tons of cash, and will not immediately buy a house and will be renting. What is renting in Unley (or similar like)?

     

    For future when we will look at buying a house, I dont mind living further from the CBD as long as not too far. What areas are more affordable, up and coming and "good neighbours"

    No problems on that kind of wage even if you had children (which is where all our money goes).

    ummmm..... I would be cautious on that sort of wage. I mean, just how few man servents will you have to look after your estate? But if your used to slumming it some what I suppose 100k will do. Lol.

    Good wage.
