We have been in Oz since January and have had our house in the UK on the market for nearly a year. It is a old cottage, beams oak floors etc in a really desirable area apparently and have dropped the price by 40k. We have had offers but the problem is no one is selling their house so all the chains are breaking. It is a real struggle renting here and paying a mortgage in the UK. Hence i cannnot afford a car here at the moment. not turning out to be the new life we thought it would be. Roll on the summer!!
