Short term accommodation Brisbane

Recommended Posts

Guest familyfriendlyhomes.com.a

Hi my name is Karen, my husband David and I own rental properties that we let on a short term basis in Brisbane Australia. Most of our business seems to be UK migrants - whilst they await their furniture by container or validate their visa, I just love helping in such a turbulent time in peoples lives, I love helping with advice on schools and where to buy a home (of course this is just because there seems to be no one helping migrants - we make our m :roll: :roll: oney from renting our homes).

 

How do I get in touch with UK migrants before they come over because they tell me they have found it very difficult to locate our website.

 

Should I speak with the migration agents? If so, how do I go about this?

 

P.S. the reason I started this business is that when my husband was transferred back to Brisbane 4 years ago & we could not find a furnished family home to rent whilst we found a permanent home. We have 3 boys and they nearly drove me crazy in a 2 bedroom unit in the city whilst I found a permanent home for us. It was crazy, I figured other families must be having the same trouble finding short term accommodation for families.

 

HELP! Any suggestions?

 

Kind regards,

Karen

Thank you so much for your reply!

 

We are pretty busy for some weeks now, but have vacancies in September.

 

Brisbane has a 1.2% vacancy rate, this means it is incredibly difficult to find a rental. My experience is that migrants find it especially difficult because of the the Australian Real Estate Agents database for checking rental history.

Families love our homes because they can maintain normal family life and are living in a neighbourhood similar to that in which they will buy/rent (long term) in.

 

We go out of our way to make sure that when you stay at one of our houses it is your home, we know how important it is to "feel at home" - we have 3 children.

 

Kind regards,

Karen

Hi Karen,

 

Are any of your properties in the Wellington Point/Cleveland area? We're looking for a short term (3 month) rental in August. Any advice gratefully received.

 

Thanks

This thread is over 4 years old and the OP has not been on line since January 2007. I have closed the thread to avoid confusion
