What we're looking for
We're looking for three new housemates to replace the ones who've recently moved out. We're looking for friendly, clean housemates - relatively close to our own age - who aren't too rowdy. We're both pretty quiet and laid-back people who like to do our own thing. Not anti-social, just not overly outgoing. No real stipulations besides the obvious: pay your rent; do your share of the housework; and get along with the rest of the household.
We do have a preference for housemates who intend to stay on for an extended period (6 months+) but this is by no means a deal-breaker.
Big 5 bedroom house in a quiet neighbourhood, with enough driveway for multiple cars plus on-street parking. 5-10 minute walk from the nearest shopping centre. Nearest public transport is even closer.
Good size kitchen and lots of common space (literally an entire spare common room that hardly gets used, so if you've got some excess furniture it probably won't be an issue); with ducted air-con/heating in all the rooms. Three bedrooms available; two with built in wardrobes, one without. Bathroom, toilet and shower are all in separate rooms so sharing the amenities is easier than you might think (plus one of the occupied rooms has an ensuite which means one less to share with).
Internet is $100 a month. Bills (gas/electric/water) paid once every three months, around $100-150 per person.
Rent - $2390 per month
Internet $100 per month
Approx $500 per person per month (full house)
Gas/Electric/Water $500-750 per quarter
$100-150 per person per quarter
Only two of us living here at the moment: I'm Rachel and my housemate is Rhys.
As mentioned, we're both a bit on the quiet side; but we're friendly enough and we don't mind having housemates who are more socially inclined. We both like our games - all kinds - so if you're into the gaming culture that's definitely a plus.
I'm 26 and currently studying while searching for part-time work. I can be a bit awkward at times, but I like to think I'm pretty nice once I loosen up a bit and can definitely be a fun person in small doses (just don't let me talk your head off).
As I said, I'm into gaming; also books, anime, YouTube, books and basically most aspects of nerd culture. Also books. I also have a huge love of animals of all shapes and sizes; and long term I hope to pursue a career in conservation and animal handling with a specialization in exotic felines (translation; I want to work in a zoo).
