Just posted this in the Victoria section but for anyone considering Melbourne....
We have 2 property owners who are willing to rent their property out on 6 month contracts. One is unfurnished and in South Yarra, the other is rented furnished and is in Mornington at $525 per week. For people who are arriving with pets both these owners are happy to consider pets.
This is great as not many landlords offer 6 month rentals in Melbourne. Plus to get one of them which is furnished is even better. It gives someone a chance to come over and spend 6 months here finding out if they can get work and if they life the place before shipping out their furniture or commiting to a 12 month lease.
