Finding accommodation is one of the first things you'll need to do when you move to Australia. There are many options to consider and decisions to make, such as should I rent or buy? or which suburb should I live in?

Once you have confirmed what state or region of Australia you will be living, you can look for accommodation that suits your needs and budget. Some tips when searching for accommodation include:

  • The costs will vary depending on your chosen state, city, and type of accommodation.
  • Always confirm the total cost and any other expenses you may be required to pay, such as a bond and utility fees.
  • Consider how far it is from your workplace and whether it is easily accessible by public transport, such as bus or train.
  • Find out what shopping centres, hospitals and emergency service facilities, and other amenities are nearby.


Renting or buying in Australia?

Generally, many migrants prefer to rent as it provides many benefits and is a much simpler process than buying a house. Renting gives you a chance to get to know your new environment before making the commitment to purchase a house. To get an idea of what's available and the costs, a good place to start are real- estate websites such as:

You can rent or 'lease' a property by yourself or with friends. This can be done through a real estate agent or privately. When renting a property, you will need to pay a security deposit or 'bond' (which is usually four weeks rent), as well as rent in advance (also usually four weeks). The bond is held to repair any damage that you, your house mates or house guests cause to the property while renting. Some, or all, of this amount may be refunded to you once your tenancy agreement has terminated.

Buying a property is a big decision. In Australia, property is very expensive to purchase and will take several decades to pay off unless you have a substantial amount of savings. Most Australians purchase property through use of mortgages supplied by a bank, building society or mutual fund.

If you're in the market to buy a property, get to know the local agents. If they know what sort of property you're after they'll be able to let you know when a suitable place comes on the market, in many cases before it becomes available to the general public.
