Rents not so scary

Chinchilla News - - NEWS - By EMMA HERON

WHEN I ar­rived in Chin­chilla last July the petrifying rental prices had me think­ing I’d be liv­ing off baked beans and toast.

Des­per­ate for a place to call home, my part­ner and I snapped up one of the first houses we were shown. Even though it was far from per­fect, we could af­ford it and it was avail­able im­me­di­ately.

Fast for­ward to a month ago and we were spoilt for choice when look­ing for a new place to rent with our +1 due in Septem­ber.

I had a list of ev­ery­thing I wanted from our new home – from a nurs­ery space to fly screens (we didn’t have those in the first place ... never again).

Not only did I get ev­ery­thing I wanted but it was at a price that was af­ford­able and fair.

If you’re in the mar­ket for some big­ger digs or just look­ing for a home that bet­ter suits your fam­ily, now is the time to make the move.

There are more than 200 places avail­able for rent in Chin­chilla so there’s bound to be some­thing that is per­fect.

Al­ter­na­tively, if you’ve al­ready found your palace, now is the time to make sure it has the price tag to match.
