But you are earning 40% or more extra wage if you are using the exchange rate and have done your homework right, plus ...... The houses are huge compared to the UK. Overall rent is dearer there though, but there are some benefits, the weather, near to the ocean, the weather, lol

My rent in UK is dearer than this. Paying my very last month's rent today, woohoo ! but looking forward to finding somewhere less than half the size that takes less time to clean in Oz

That would get you a lot up here in Ramsbottom, a nice 5 bed house with a big garden in a nice area. Depends on the area as much as the country.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

We've just rented our house out in Dublin for €1450 per month... which is $1750 per month. But where are you? we'll be renting in Perth, which is more expensive that what your paying, average of $500 per week!!!

 

It all depends where you live I guess!

Where I used to live in Essex but on an underground line I was paying £785 3 years ago but now those properties are between £900-£1000 and that was only a two bed flat. For the same size flat here in Leeds it is £535 for £1000 you can get a 5 bed house here. Though all relative as earnings are a lot lower for my job here then over in Australia. It is still shocking when you think about it.

It does seem a lot when you first think of the amount. I got to wondering a few months back to see what you would have to pay for a similar sized property in London compared to that in Perth. After the first page of rents, I stopped looking - you are talking telephone numbers!!!:err:

Thanks for the advice, you have only been on here five minutes, but I have been on here over 4 years and there's not much I don't know, people earn on average over 40% to what the average Brit earns, it's a fact and most on PIO are skilled migrants and will get paid at least that well.

That's ever so long, are you sure you are allowed to be a member that long? I read elsewhere that peoples membership should be time related. You know get to oz the first try or ship off elsewhere ! I of course don't have an opinion on that suggestion !

Jim, the amount of time that you have been on PIO does not make your opinion any more valid than the poster who as you put it has been on for 5 mins. Perhaps the poster that has been on PIO for 5 mins is actually living in Australia, which would make their point just as valid as yours.

 

Researching both on this site and other sources is great, but so is actually living and experiencing the place first hand. Also do you have any back up to your fact that most skilled migrants will get 40% more wages than they did in the UK??

 

Cheers
