Hi Guys My property is now up for sale in the UK and I anticipate to be out there towards the end of this year. Does anyone know around the approximate cost to rent out in Perth please they seem very expensive and would be better getting an holiday let first when we arrive and then look for a rental later? Any advise would be much appreciated. Many thanks Debbie

hi there i would advise a holiday rental for the first month and then look around for a long term one as it will be hectic when you get here the last thing you need to think about is finding a home ... rentals are from $370 upwards an average of around $420 ... .. this is just my advise as this is what we did and it worked for us best of luck emma

I second Emma. It would be a very good idea to holiday let first. We stayed here which was ideal. http://www.stayz.com.au/8490 Holiday let will give you a chance to look at different areas before you commit to renting. It also take the stress out of rushing. We holiday let for 2 months and the bought a house. In terms of rental prices it depends what you are after and the area. If you are a single person then you could find something around 370 to 450. If you need a nice family home then you'd porbably be looking at 450 to 650. Again depending on area and if you want a pool. Just make sure you get something with aircon if it's in summer!!!

For long term rentals have a look at www.realestate.com.au/rent and have a look at the suburbs this will give you an idea of rental prices for the type of home you are after Good luck with your move

Hi Debbie Have a look on www.rewia.com for rentals, that will give you an idea of how much is charged. When we came over, we got a holiday let for the first month, just so that we had a base with all the necessities. To be honest, 1 month probably wasn't enough. But make sure any rental you get has internet acces, the one we got didn't have this and it meant we couldn't do any research. For a holiday let, try www.holidaylettings.co.uk Cheers Dave

Hi Debbie - also depends on how long you plan to stay in your rental - if you are only gonna be there over the winter you are unlikely to get alot of use from the pool and you can finf=d houses without pools a bit cheaper. Where are you hoping to settle? Kim
