    Just FYI, I did the same as you, went to Domain, put in my suburb and surrounding, searching for a 3bdr property under $350,000. Results- 0.
    So I took out the price range, and just searched for a 3bdr property. First one listed (from lowest price to highest) is $669,000. Oh and in case your interested, the highest price listed was for offers over $2,750,000.

    So there you go. And no I'm not willing to move anywhere cheaper, I did that once and it didn't work out.
    That's funny because I also did it and there still was a few there.

    Same. Then they get upset when we move.

    Yep, we allow pets too in our rentals.
    My SIL is renting one of ours at the moment and just adopted 4 puppies as they were about to be put down if no one took them. We said yes.
    I trust the property manager, and if anything needs to be fixed they are liable to fix it. thats what rent inspections are for!
    Im sure kids (I know, I have one and one on the way) make way more 'mess' than pets do (as do some adults!!!!)
    I feel sorry for renters who have pets.. most landlords don't make it easy for you! My Brother is looking for a place at the moment - its not cheap in Perth and even harder when you have a pet!

    The flaw in saying that there are cheap properties (for example in 4152, as I can comment on this area) is the houses ofter require work, like restumping, rewiring, extensive asbestos throughout (we have it), reroofing. I can also tell you that at least 2 of the properties that showed up on domain for 4152 are in streets that have flooded at least twice in 4 years. Others are on very busy roads which is not nice for sleeping babies, not to mention the very heavy dust (containing god knows what) that settles on every surface of our home. So a domain search doesn't give the full story, there is a whole range of other issues to consider.

    ETA - removing an asbestos roof and replacing with zincalume cost us $10000. Other quotes were as high as $17000.

    I'm sorry, I am genuinely confused. Are you joking?

    I was genuinely curious, so I googled. The general consensus (from a quick google I admit) is that the crime rate there is very high and it is highly recommended to NOT live there as it is a very bad area.

    There is often a very good reason house prices are way way lower than the average.

    Actually in some of our places I wouldnt allow more than 2 children due to space.

    It is hard to buy, but you can't expect your dream house the first time you buy or be in the best area. It's about getting into the housing market.

    Not all rent covers my mortgages and I don't live in a house I own because we move for hubby's work. Everyone has different requirements and it's about making your money work in your situation.
    Renting a house to someone is a business transaction it is not and should not be an emotional thing and it's why you are covered by agents and insurances.
