This was just in Ballarat's local paper today: http://www.thecourier.com.au/news/local/news/general/renters-squeezed-as-prices-rise-again/1723895.aspx
What are the areas (streets/suburbs) to look for in Ballarat?
Did you read the comments at the bottom of the page? ..... I feel sorry for the first person that posted there views, they were hammered by the renters who replied.
I could rant on further as to the views of the tenant soapbox group's comments, but I really can't be bothered. I'll just go back and sit in the corner and continue to provide subsidised housing. After all I'm obviously one of those greedy mongral millionaire landlords they go on about. I really should have reduced the rent when interest rates went down, .. even though other holding costs went up ... hmmm, maybe next time ....
A few people are already starting to commute from Ballarat to Melb for work... a loooong train trip of 90 minutes but just FYI.
