The whole Kimberley is booming. Building land is scarce as most of the land here is Aboriginal owned and can't be built on. Both renting or buying is expensive, very expensive, especially in Broome.
Actually, finding something at all can be a challenge during the busy time of the year.
On the other hand there is always plenty of work available. Many people move to Broome for the dry season or come to the Kimberley for seasonal work.
A hundred times as many tourists descend upon Broome every dry season, so everybody is scrambling for workers. Finding a job should not be a problem during the dry season.
Of course, it may be different for people who live a corporate lifestyle in the city and expect to do exactly the same kind of work up here. The Kimberley or Broome lifestyle is different and the high profile corporate jobs are not so plentiful. I depends what you are looking for.
The tourism and hospitality industry is obviously a big one in Broome and has plenty of openings during the dry season. But all shops and many other businesses look for extra staff for the dry. Such a job could tie you over until you find something more suitable, permanent.
