    @newBeg19 yung husband ko nakakuha ng work sa mga online application (sobrang sinuwerte sa araw-araw na pag-aaply online) kaya mas napaaga ang BM namin, kasi gusto ng magiging boss niya na mag-start na siya by Feb. Ako hindi na muna magwork at pregnant, by that time mga 6months nako (1st baby), so parang nakakahiya na mag-apply at mag-mamaternity leave din ako.
    @Giegie nagpa-box ba kayo from SG to OZ? Buti may bahay na kayo, kami mag-iinspect pa ng mga bahay pagdating tapos mamimili pa ng mga gamit.

    hindi na kami nagpabox kasi mahal din ang bayad tapos may babayaran pa ata pagdating dun sa OZ. nag-add na lang kami ng additional weight sa baggage namin.

    mas maganda fully furnish na lang kunin nyo na bahay para wala na kayong problema sa mga gamit.

    @newBeg19 yes nahirapan kami kasi wala kami kakilala dito s mel. Ngrent kami ng hotel and within 3 weeks kami nkahanap. Mahirap mkakuha ng room only pg couple lalo n if family. Kelangan din ng referral sa previous landlords nyo (contact number ok na) basta may 2-3references n landlord or agent nyo previously. Also, since wala kayong reference sa AU na previous lease, kelangan nyo mgprovide ng proof of funds to show kaya nyo mgbayad.

    Remember, kelangan mg-apply at maapprove ng landlord ung application nyo pra makuha nyo ung lease. Di ibig sabihin na gusto nyo n kunin ung house at kaya nyo mgbayad ay kayo n ung kukunin n tenant ng landlord.

    Also, may 100points ID n requirement pero madali lang mameet un nsa google lang ung details.

    Advisable own house kunin 3br pra sulit. Kya lang ung 1 room at least paupahan nyo kasi mahal in the long run. D nman nagagamit ung isang room. Kya kami nghahanap ng pinoy na pwede makashare.

    Another thing, pag own house, unfirnished lahat although may iba furnished (usually dishwasher lang ksama) so you need to buy your own appliances and furnitures which is very costly lalo n kung nagsisimula pa lang kayo.

    Kung magstart pa lang kayo at concern kayo s funds nyo, kuha kayo ng room lang kasi usually may furnitures n agad and appliances or kuha kayo ng house then parentahan nyo ung isang room.

    Rule of thumb, mas malapit s city mas mahal, mas maliit ung space.

    Very efficient den ang public transpo dito (bus, train) pwede pa nga mgbike. Malalayo den ang mall dito although pwde mgbus

    Let me know if interested ka sa room lang, may isa kaming libreng room. Send me your email send ko ung details with picture.

    Hello @pentemp1001, question lang, yung sa referrals hinahanap ba talaga ng landlords or agents dyan? Or will proof of funds and 100points ID requirement do?

    @adamwarlock agents are just collecting all these docs and pass it to the landlords to make a decision. Getting your own place is like applying for a job so, Just because you qualify doesnt mean ikaw na makakakuha ng place.

    There's stiff competition and i'm sure one renting property are probably receiving a minimum of 10 to 30 applications (depende sa ganda ng place) so you need to beef up your applications with referrals. I remember na i attached a letter of intent pa nga sa mga application ko to tell them about me and why I badly wanted their place.

    I’ll give you an example how stiff the completions is. Let’s say family of 4 kayo and you submitted your application to rent a two bedroom apartment. 100 points ka sa identification and your application is beefed up with referrals etc. Pero there’s another applicant na couple lang without kids, the documents they submitted are okay okay lang. Most landlords would probably prefer the couple for sure. Why? No kids eh, so probably they can maintain the place better and for sure both of them are working so there’s no concern of late payments.

    In short, it is really up to the landlords to decide talaga and all you can do is hope they select you.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
