Looking for a home to rent?
When you’re looking at rental properties, take into account what your needs are. Write a list of your non-negotiables and ‘nice to haves’ then list the latter in order of preference. Things to prioritise include transport (public transport or access to major arterials), school zones and local amenity e.g. doctors, shops, supermarket, parks etc.
We recommend taking into account the number and size of bedrooms, living areas and bathrooms that you will require. Does the property have sufficient storage? For example, built in robes, pantry, linen closet, microwave cavity and outdoor storage (garage or shed for bikes etc.).
Finally, consider the modern conveniences that you need, for example, ducted heating, air conditioning, dishwasher, outdoor space for entertaining/kids play area etc.
