Especially in city locations, Australia has a fast moving housing market. So try to organise some short term house rental for when you first arrive. That way you’ll have a temporary base to research your options for somewhere to rent or buy.
MoveList puts you in touch with a set of three accommodation providers that can help you set up a base when you first arrive in the country.
There is a good range of options with short-to-medium term accommodation, from serviced apartments to short-term house rental. While some of this is geared towards the tourist market, there are some surprisingly good deals available. And of course, some of them are truly beautiful places!
Flexibility is key. You don’t want to be dealing with mortgages, rental agreements, or vendor negotiations while you’re still shaking off your jetlag. Much better to have a simple and flexible check-in, check-out arrangement till you can sort out the big picture.
