If you’re planning to move to Australia, you might find it hard to find a house. If you don’t have connections there yet, you might wonder where to start. In this article, we’ll show you what website you can use and how you can turn your search into a success. There are thousands of houses available for you to rent, so the question is not if you will find something, but when. With these tips, house-hunting will become much easier.

Where do you want to live? 

It might sound like we’re stating the obvious, but knowing in which part of the country you want to live is the right start. This means you have to know something about rental prices in every part of the country. It goes without saying that houses or apartments in the countryside are more affordable than a house in the capital of the country. If you are not bound to a specific region, check the average rent for every city and see which ones suit your budget. 

Find your house online 

One of the best ways to find a proper residence is to search online for it. A very popular Australian website is Rentola. Here you can find thousands of accommodations for starters, families, students, or whatever you need. Right now there are more than 12.000 rentals available. You can search on zip code, city, or area and after hitting ‘search’ a list is shown to you with all the available properties. Take a glimpse at the website and you understand why this website is used by so many people. The pictures on the website are of high quality, descriptions of the accommodations are detailed and prices are reasonable. Click here to see more 

Set a search alarm

It takes some time to find an appropriate house or apartment. Since there are many available on the website, it might be time-consuming to go through all these options. We, therefore, recommend you set a search alarm. You can fill in your preferences, what kind of house are you looking for? Where? What is your budget? And so on. Once a new accommodation is listed, you will receive a notification right away. You will never miss a good opportunity anymore and you can contact the landlord within a minute after the advertisement was placed. 

Always ask for a viewing

Rentola is known as a trustworthy website where you can find decent houses for affordable prices. Nevertheless, if you found a house in which you’re interested, always ask for a viewing. This allows you to see if the house is in a good condition if the maintenance was done well and on time and if there are no hidden defects. Also, check if the house is properly insulated. This might save you a good deal of money in winter since temperatures can reach degrees far below zero. If the house gives you a good vibe, it’s time to sign the contract. Make sure you read the contract closely so you don’t sign anything you don’t agree with. Always check if there is, and if yes, what the deposit is, and what the notice period is in case you want to move out. 

Moving in

Once you’ve signed the contract, it’s time to pack your stuff and move into your new residency. You can always hire a company to help you. Make sure you pack your stuff in proper boxes so you can stack and transport them easily. If you need to take the stairs to reach your house, you can also use a moving lift. This will make moving in much easier and you will also save a lot of time. We wish you good luck during your house hunt!
