Renting a home is a very exciting time! It allows you the flexibility to move if your circumstances change or your lifestyle calls for something fresh. As a tenant, you’re not locked into a long-term financial commitment as you might be with buying your own home.
When you are searching for a rental property, it is important to stick to your budget and select a home you can absolutely afford to rent without struggling to pay the rent each week. Your desired home should also provide the standard of living you require, while taking into account your preferred suburb and any special needs you & your loved ones may have. Thoroughly research your new home needs with regard to your overall lifestyle pattern and that of any other people you’ll be living with. Spend plenty of time looking around the suburb and surrounding areas to ensure it’s where you truly want to be. The best way to get a feel for a location is to visit and wander around on foot. If you have children, ensure you investigate local schools and suburb safety information.
The advantage of renting is that you can move when your tenancy period expires, but don’t think too short term – make sure it’s a suburb you want to live in.
