Me and dp are looking for a rental... I can't not believe how much the prices have increased, it's insane!
Before dd arrived we were renting and paying 280pw for a 3x1 house, with double garage and pet friendly. This was our first rental and and our first application (must of got lucky!)
Now looking at houses, there are nothing in our price range in the areas we want I have lost count of how many we have applied for, all unsuccessful. (Nothing wrong with us, got a great reference, just not being chosen )
The last house we viewed and applied for was awful... 3x1, So dirty and old, toilet is attached to the outside of the house, no garden or grass, just that messy grey sand... And they were asking $400pw!
In 2.5 ish years I just can not believe how much the rent has increased and the demand too!
Some houses have had 20+ people at viewings!
