May this year be a great year to everyone. Thank you!
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

frustrating apartment seeking for new migrants

I did not know that it is this hard for new migrants to find a place to start up their new life in AUS.
When looking for desired unit/apartment with housing agencies, new migrants seem to be shortlisted easily coz of no rental history and initial employment.
Time is ticking. Saved-up Money on-hand are flowing out daily.
This reality is only felt once you are here in AUS.

Yep. Life's a struggle, i know.
just sharing
cheers and God bless

    Did you mean not shortlisted? Yeah, it's like job hunting. You'll get through it.

    After 2-3weeks from my 1st viewing and online application from agencies LJHooker, Badenoch, Sadilquinlan, RayWhite, Rent.com.au, and others and some private listers. Only Badenoch responded with unsuccessful/denied application, and the rest, no replies.
    I know unit owners want to assure that they will receive the payment. But it seems there's no consideration to migrants how can afford to give the right bond and weekly payment. ... just saying. Thanks. Cheers and God bless

    Try to look for private listing accomodations..yung direct sa owner, they are easy to deal with and will usually consider your no rental history.
