20 Sydney suburbs where you can still find a room for under $250
on 15 November 2016 by Aaron
It’s absolutely no secret that living in Sydney is insanely expensive, and it’s not getting any cheaper.
Even small mercies such as free Opal trips or a coffee under $5, are all but gone— along with your hard-earned money.
The ridiculous cost of living is most evident, however, when it comes to housing. Whether you share, rent or own a place, you’ll know all too well that property bargains in the Harbour City are rarer than unicorn poop.
Recent data analysis by Flatmates.com.au found that just 38% of rooms listed in Sydney during the third quarter of 2016 were valued below $250 per week, compared to Melbourne where it was 79%.
So to help you find a cheaper place sooner, we’ve further analysed the 38% to find the suburbs that had the most listings under $250. These 20 suburbs accounted for over a third of all sub $250 rooms during Q3, so your chances of a bargain* are pretty good.
*Only considered a bargain for those in Sydney.
