I know this is a very circumstancial question, but I'm just looking for a rough estimate on how long it would take to rent out an apartment. This is the apartment; http://www.domain.com.au/Public/PropertyDetails.aspx?adid=2006946152 Since then it has been re-painted and is lookin much cleaner. Apart from that the railings on the block have all been replaced and the place looks a bit nicer now. I'd be looking for what I'd consider not necessarily 'cheap' rent, but reasonable.. $275pw.. Which looks to be reasonable for what it is, and the location. 1. Any ideas on roughly how long it would take to start getting rent for the place? 2. Going through an agent would probably be the quickest option? Basically my situation is, that I'm considering renting out a place in the City, and using the rent from my own place to cover the rent of the new place. Living in the City would just be so much more convenient for me.
