Sydney apartments

Hello all,
I am planning on going to Australia for a year in September. I am just curious to know if apartments are expensive or affordable in Sydney. I am 18 and will be getting a job, but I just want to know how much of my work and money will go towards a apartment.

Also, I may have at least one other person coming with me, who will also live in the apartment.

Hi Bkeefe8,

Here is a link to a site I found while researching Australia. I have not been there yet, but have spent tons of hours reading and trying to learn. This site looks like a good place to start for you.. and perhaps others will have better resources they will contribute as well..

Hey!
I'm here staying with a "hostfamily". In my case it's actually just an old lady, but it's cheap ($240 weekly, with breakky and dinner on weeekdays and breakky, lunch and dinner on weekends), I have a pool, spa, sauna and gym, my own room, my own bathroom and I can come and go whenever I want to.
Maybe they also offer rooms for 2 persons. Just write a mail: [email protected]

That's great value Martina and out of interest I looked for Meridian and found them and other links @ Nature Care College ~ International Students ~ Living in Sydney

Me too i have been not there yet in Australia but beware about one person in Canada. Laeeque Ahmed is famous for selling at asking price, if not for all the other scams. Maybe next do some research on people before you deal with them. Thank god for forums and blogs.

It depends where in Sydney you would like to rent an apartment. There will be different price in Penrith, different in Parramatta, different in Burwood and totally different in Bondi.

yeah it depends on where you work and where you want to stay. Around the Chippendale area (quite close to CBD and not so expensive as in CBD), a two-bedroom apartment is around $500/week. I think rent in Sydney is expensive compared to salaries.

$500 per week is a lot. You would rather look a little bit further and rent can go down to $350 on 2 br unit.

As everyone said it depends on where you want to live. the closer to the CBD you are the more expensive it can get. Also it depends on how long you are going to stay in Sydney for (im guessing your on a WHV so your planning on living in different cities). the other problem is that most real estate agents in Sydney prefer that you have a previous rental history in Australia as well as signing a 6 or 12 month lease, So if things dont work out your stuck in a contract that is hard to get out of. Look into some student or traveller boarding houses there all around the City and rooms can vary from $200 - $300 per week. Bonds are usually low for these and bills are generally included. Also a great way for you to get to know people in Sydney. Also remember rentals in Sydney are 95% unfurnished.

Look up Sydney Terraces they are based in Enmore, great location and pretty cheap, plus furnished, Bills included, internet available and close to the CBD.

Sydney is getting more and more expensive - if you want somewhere decent to live without paying too much money, try out west or southwest!
