I've got a Graduate position at one of the government departments in Canberra next year, which requires me to move out of home (Melbourne).
I was hoping for some advice on tips/tricks/pitfalls of moving out, renting and other aspects of sharing a house with others. Basically - what hidden costs are there, what makes the best housemates, best method of getting along with others, and anything else you can think of! Keep in mind that I have an introverted personality until I make friends and become more comfortable. What suburbs should I be looking for at a budget of say... $250/pw?
And if some of you have lived in Canberra before, feel free to share your thoughts on the place, thanks!
