Renting in Oz

Posted on July 26, 2011 at 9:15 1 Comment

Renting in OZ - Can anyone recommend good rental sites for in and around Melbourne?? I am trying to look at cost of rental properties and general costs involved when trying to rent somewhere so I am thinking that getting in touch with a rental agency is probably my best option and get the info 'straight from the horses mouth' so to speak!!!…

Hi Kelly,
Been a bit slow for us but that's our fault for not getting on with it, but we have just had a second daughter! Holly who is 5 weeks now.
My wife took ilets test and got what she needed for nurse registration but scored a 9 9 8.5 7.5 which gets us 10 points towards visa but at least 8 in each would of got 20 points, so we are at 60 points and need state sponsorship for another 5 points which is ok, or resit the test to get 20 points. We are getting all documents certified at mo then submit skills assessment and nurse registration.

Hi Kelly,

How's your plans going?

I think its going to be Perth, hear so many good things about it and know people that have lived there and want to go back. Maybe Adelaide supposed to be lovely and cost of living is much better. Strangely not been to either but have travelled extensively down the east coast and anywhere from south Queensland down and round o Adelaide would do!

Guess you like the seasons then if you like Melbourne, i found it a very busy, hustle bustle place but no doubt it has great facilities.

Do you know what visa to go for yet? are you going to be self employed or employed?

Hi Kelly,


No worries, when i see something i think i can answer i'll help!

Only just starting really, my wife is a nurse we are going to apply for a skilled visa, she has taken ILETS test and we have gathered all the info ready to submit skills assesment and get registered as a nurse in oz, then prob submit visa around nov time.

I have been doing loads of research for a few years though! I reccomend you subscribe to Australia & New Zealand magazine its really usefull.

I think we are going to try and go it alone without the help of an agent but i would say are good and ive heard good things about although i found them slow to reply to initial enquiries.

You havent been to oz have you? whats drawing you to melbourne? its very expensive  and  i think you have to go a fair way from the city to find something reasonably priced.
