30 March 2013 - 10:51 PMMeanwhile my boss is STILL off the internet so I have no idea what is up with him.
And I'm on interview #3 with a job in Brisbane of all places.
Seriously, do they have no internet in Florida?
10 March 2013 - 11:20 PMI live in a million dollar house for $250/week. I am sure with your two incomes you can do it as long as you find a gem. A couple weeks ago they advertised a 3-BR house for $630/week a few metres from my place. If you only have one income and kids I would advise against moving to Sydney. Unless your household income is $100K plus super I advise against moving to Sydney.
If one person moved to Sydney the cost of doing so would be at least $250/week. Does the additional after-tax income by going full-time in Sydney come to at least $500/week? If it does not then it makes no economic sense to make the move.
For bedrooms http://www.flatmatefinders.com.au is your best bet.
We're not moving for the money. We're moving for the people. If it isn't Sydney, we'd be going to Melbourne. We just happen to work in Sydney.
Financially it is a huge lose not a win and it makes zero economic sense. But there are no people out here. No clubs. No events. No tech people. Have hit the limit of time spent in a regional area and need to get OUT. Right now we are spending about $200 every time we take an overnight trip to Adelaide to a club or event, and sometimes that is weekly.
Marrickville has come up as the suburb of choice so far. Apparently we really should be looking near Newtown, which is where all the events are.
10 March 2013 - 06:35 AMIf that's maroubra, 4 bedroom houses are either auction only or start at well over a million, so yay. I have another suburb to put on my too-expensive list.
Would be more use if anyone has a spare bedroom ... boss doesn't mind us coming up in week-long chunks alone (as opposed to with whole family) to work on site.
10 March 2013 - 06:29 AMI can't search on that though because I don't know what suburb that is.
I know two co-workers live in Newtown and Randwick though.
