I have lived in many different types of dwellings over the years, from flats to cottages, to share accommodation. For a while I even lived in a caravan on the property of a friend when I was in between houses. On average I have always paid between $200-350 AUD per week, and that's below average in this country. On top of that I have electricity bills and some other outgoings. The places I have rented have usually got 1-2 bedrooms and a bit of character. I couldn't live in a cement box. What's the average weekly/monthy rent in your country?
