Paris Larkham is "on the wrong side of the housing boom."
The mother-of-two is one of many renters who have been told to vacate their current living situation amidst a rise in house sales.
Nearly three months ago she was given her notice, but despite applying for more than 20 homes in that time, has yet to have one fall in her favour.
"I've been a good tenant, I haven't received a warning or anything but it's just the fact of the sheer volume of people who are applying for houses at the moment," she said.
"I have two little girls and it's a really stressful, scary thought that I might not be able to provide them with a house. It's really frustrating because I've got to the point where I'm offering to pay more than what they're asking and I'm offering to pay X amount of rent up front."
Ms Larkham, now 28, has lived in Orange since she was just 10 years old.
Now because of the housing demand, she could be left without a place to stay.
"I was really proud of myself because two years ago I wasn't working full time and I wasn't doing anything with my life," she added.
"But I worked really hard to pull my socks up for my kids and for the last two years, most of the time I was working two jobs.
"I think in the grand scheme of things I'm doing really well and that makes me sad because imagine how those people are going if I'm this stressed out worrying about my kids having a roof over their heads."
Worst case scenario will mean Ms Larkham and her kids will have to move out of their current home in two weeks. Only time will tell whether they can find somewhere to rent before then.
