Been reading this with interest as we are fairly close to a few of you (Miskin). Had the estate agents out and they said they could sell it (well they would wouldn't they!) but for a bit less than we were hoping to get. Got to talking about renting and we have decided for us this is the way forward. We live near a very oversubscribed school so no problem renting out - have seen quite a few 'for sales' turning into 'to lets' and going in a matter of days. Good rental price too which covers our mortgage and the management fee. We can survive for a few years but longer term would need to sell before we can buy in Oz. Like everything in this adventure it's a bit of a gamble and prices may be worse in 2/3 years but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
