Whenever you are ready...

Basically, the higher the rent the less competition you will face. And if you are looking at 5-6K a month, you won't have a problem finding a place. Though may not get the same things you'd get in SA for that price.

As long a you have proof of a few years of your income then you shouldn't have a problem even if you are self employed. Usually they will ask for 3 years of tax returns for self employed people.

However, remember, they usually look for you to spend no more than about 30% of your income on rent.
