quicko: transient sydney

I'm not sure how Sydney compares to other cities on this, but it strikes me as very transient in terms of the length of time people live in one flat before moving to another one. My friends and friends' friends are constantly moving -- not to other cities, but to other suburbs. Finding a flatmate or finding a place are routine exercises people are quite adept at undertaking and capable of doing quickly and efficiently.

Hopefully, you've had enough time in Sydney for this skill to rub off on you, too, right?

Are people not tied down by one year leases?

Not really. There are 6 month leases, there's subletting, there's breaking a lease and finding a replacement, etc.
