I've been looking at 1 bedroom rentals in Epping NSW and with some of the newer apartments the price can be as high as $530 (furnished), whereas for a run down old apartment it's $395. Just wanted to know how much you can bargain with rentals in general? I offered $450 (unfurnished) for the $530 (furnished) apartment since the average seems to be around that mark.
Also if it helps the 2 bed rooms in epping are around $600.
Just feel like $500+ in Epping is a rip off when you can use flatmates for a single bedroom in the city around 300-350. Any tips on what I should bid for when going for rentals, or is it even foolish asking for something less than the advertised price?
