    Just as the title says really - we will shortly be looking for a rental property in the Brisbane area, ideally in Paddington. Generally speaking, when applying for a rental in Australia I'm aware that demand is high and supply is short, despite this are the agents / landlords open to offers on the rental price? If so has anyone actually managed to get a good deal?

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    I do not think you will be able to make offers, in some areas prospective tenants are offering more money to get a rental. You will find they have enough people after the properties to let them without any need to accept offers. If you did find a rental that the agency was willing to accept offers, then I would worry about what the area was like. :smile:

    1Hi, We arrived 4 weeks again and are looking around the Buderim area, we are offering 4 months rent up front to try and get the house we want, should hear tomorrow hopefully :wink: (everyone is a bit slower then UK) they are lots of people all going for the same house so very hard to get it unless you can prove you can pay it ! we had to give our bank statements from UK and Oz also our accountants letter proving that we still have a property and business in the UK and can afford to rent as we havent jobs yet. I will let you know who we get on. PM me I will email you stuff you will need.

    Hi we arrive in just over a week anything you could send us would be a great help ,we have left this last week for sorting out the last bits of paperwork and seeing friends and the accountant .
  5. The market is so competitive in Brisbane at the moment that most properties out for rent all have 3 applications or more, so it is unlikely that the owner would consider a lower offer.
    Brisbane is a pretty safe city, so a house that stays on the market for a while doesn’t mean it is in a bad location. It is simply overpriced and a little patience may see a price reduction.
    If you have a limited budget or know exactly how much you want to spend on a rental, you can always contact agencies who will – most of them – keep your details in a database and let you know when something comes up that you may find worthy of interest.
