One of the biggest concerns you should have when moving to Melbourne is and should be where you will be living. But not everyone will want to have me look for their house before they arrive. There is still that fear that someone else is deciding for them and they will not get what they want. It is understandable that they want to be as involved as they can in picking the house or apartment that they will be living in for the next 12 months in Melbourne.
So as most people do, they wait until they have relocated to Melbourne and they start looking. And if they do not have friends or family here who are willing to put them up for several weeks while they are house hunting, they will live in short-term temporary accommodation.
Where to Look for Short Term Accommodation
The most popular website now is Airbnb. You get to choose houses and apartments of regular people. The good thing about Airbnb is that the choices of location is vast. The options are endless.
Two more expensive options are hotels and serviced apartments. Most of them are located in and close to the CBD and high traffic areas. Be prepared to shell out $200 per night for these types of accommodation. Looking for a place to rent takes over 2 weeks and then some before you can move in. Keep that in mind. But if you are prepared to pay over $2,000 while you are looking for your home, websites like Stayz, Expedia, Wotif, Last Minute, Booking.com and Hotels.com.
