good day to all,
We recently moved to Adelaide and are looking for a 2 bedroom rental property on the fringe in Adelaide via the usual property portals, realestate.com.au etc.
I was wondering if it is acceptable to put in applications for more than one property at one time? Anyways, there is no guarantee that either of my applications will be accepted. Multiple applications at one time can save me waiting time for response and also offer me more options to choose from. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
My partner and I will be moving to Adelaide early 2018 and are trying to narrow down with area to live in when we first arrive. We would probably initially look to signing a short rental agreement of about 6 months before we take the plunge and buy a house. My partner has secured a job as a GP in the Para Hills area and can drive, not usually minding a commute of around 20/25 minutes. I, however, am awkward and cannot drive, so am dependant on public transport. I think we would prefer to be somewhere with a train station for easy and quick transport into the city, as, at least initially, we would love to get into town to sample all the great restaurants. We would like somewhere fairly smart-ish, safe and clean.
From the research I have done North Adelaide or Croydon seems to fit the bill. Would anyone happen to have any recommendations which would be best, or even a secret third option? Any heads-up about no-go areas would be greatly appreciated too.
