Looking for rental in QLD over Easter.... Helloooo....


We are lucky enough to have been granted our visa (175) and if all goes to plan should be heading over to QLD (Sunshine Coast) March/April 2009.


for the 1st 4 weeks we plan to book holiday accommodation to use as a base while we do our rekkie and find an area we'd like to settle and HOPEFULLY secure a rental property. (We are looking from Caloundra to Nambour & inland).


What I'm wondering is, do you think over the Easter period would be an 'easier' time or even more difficult to find and secure a rental property? Just thinking if people are on holidays, then maybe they won't be going to view rentals....or do you think it'd work the other way...and as people are on holidays, have MORE time to go looking at rentals?


This is my biggest worry securing a nice rental property in a nice area. I've heard the competition is FIERCE for rentals...and with our having 3 little dogs with us.


We will of course be bringing all our references/statements etc to prove ourselves and to try and make things easier for ourslves.


I have read though that the government are making 'rent auctioning' illegal nest year and that they are to increase the termination period from 2 weeks to 2 months, so hoping that will make things a bit better.


If anyone has any advice....thoughts...or wants to share what they are doing...


I'd love to hear what you have to say.


Thanks in advance guys
