How do I find a place to live in Airlie Beach?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Airlie Beach, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and what type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a shared house, an apartment, or a standalone house. Next, you should start your search online. Websites like realestate.com.au, domain.com.au, and flatmates.com.au are popular platforms for finding rental properties in Australia. You can filter your search based on your preferences such as location, price, number of bedrooms, and property type. Another option is to engage a real estate agent in Airlie Beach. They can help you find properties that match your criteria, arrange viewings, and guide you through the application process. Local newspapers and community bulletin boards may also have listings for rental properties. Once you've found a potential place, you'll need to submit an application. This usually involves providing references, proof of income, and possibly a credit check. If your application is accepted, you'll then sign a lease agreement. This is a legally binding document that outlines the terms of your rental, including the duration, rent amount, and any rules or restrictions. Finally, before moving in, you'll typically need to pay a bond (usually equivalent to four weeks' rent) and the first month's rent in advance. The bond is held as security in case of any damage to the property or unpaid rent. Remember, it's important to thoroughly inspect the property before signing the lease and to understand all the terms and conditions of the lease agreement," remarked one member in Airlie Beach.
