We have just sold our own home in inner Melbourne that we have have for 9 years and are now starting to rent in Brisbane so we can get a better sense of the city before buying.
How ridiculous and rude is it of people to look down on renters. Granted some tenants are not ideal, but I am glad that I have found this site as Springfield looks like it doesn't have any kind of community if this is how it views others who are not as fortunate as we are to own our own homes.
Generally the problem with renters is they don't care about the property, no sense of pride in their home. I have found these better suburbs to have great tenants who do look after "their" (the lessors) property. A well screened tenant will save a lifetime of headaches!
