    I think you should be able to manage fine with the remainder of your income. If I were in your situation I'd probably do the same.

    I'm looking at paying around $350 a week but where I live that gets me a modern townhouse with 2 or 3 bedrooms plus study nook and ensuite. I wouldn't want to relocate 40mins out of town.

    I pay $185 a week for a 3 bedroom house on a property in the country.

    I think paying $600 a week in rent is do-able if you look at your budget and expenses.

    I was paying $320 a week for a 4 bedroom house I knew I could afford it when DH left so I had no plans on moving. We are back together now though

    I pay $330 pw in rent plus $200 pw for my car loan on an income of $65k before tax so I think you would be fine. Here that would be a luxury rental though, and a bit excessive. Where you are it might be the norm.

    I think you would be fine on that income. I pay $400 a week (Sydney too) but that leaves me only about $400 a week for everything else. I've only done it for 3 weeks though so can't really say if it's working or not!

    You can do it, and I believe it's def worth trying for the sake of your little one. Stability is important for him now as you've already identified.

    You could always look to move if you found it difficult down the track.

    All the very best with such a massive change.
