Many people seem to think that renting in Melbourne is expensive because they can only rent a room, not a whole apartment or condominium unit. But that is not the whole story.

Most people who live in Melbourne have apartments or houses, as well as apartments that they are not renting out. Those who live in condominiums often have more than one room that they are renting out, for a variety of different purposes.
A big part of having apartments in Melbourne is the transportation issue. If you have to drive to work, you may have to leave the apartment you live in until you can drive to work.
Well, that might not be a problem if you only have to drive two or three blocks to get to work. But if you need to drive forty or more blocks to get to work, that’s when the time-consuming issue comes into play.
So in addition to finding a place to live and having a vehicle to drive to work, you may also have to spend time finding a place to rent in Melbourne. This may include but is not limited to, the money to buy the property, having it inspected, having the mortgage drawn up, and, if necessary, getting that property re-zoned. That does not mean that you have to go through the same ordeal with renting in Melbourne as you do with renting in the United States. The advantages of renting in Melbourne, however, are well worth the time and money.
First, the personal safety issues. Most people in Melbourne are much safer than they are in most other major cities. Crime rates are significantly lower than in other big cities, which makes the fact that you are renting in Melbourne so appealing.
For instance, one has to be careful when entering a Melbourne hotel lobby, because there are so many foreign tourists there. If you are not of the foreign tourists, you may encounter some form of harassment or other form of intimidation or hostility.
Another safety issue is that you may not be able to drive your own car to and from your office in Melbourne. Many people choose to drive their cars, to and from work, to and from Melbourne.
It is a hassle, and a nuisance, to travel to the airport to pick up your rental car, pay your rental car’s rental fee, pick up your rental car, rent it, rent it, then drive it back to your rental car, wait at the airport to catch a flight to your desired destination. Then you drive back home to your apartment to collect your rented rental car.
Thankfully, there is no need to go through all that trouble when renting in Melbourne. Thanks to the fact that rental apartments are made available to renters throughout the whole metropolitan area, including some of the most popular places to visit, you can easily rent a place in Melbourne for the price you would pay for a larger apartment.
