You can always make it work and it goes fast till your container comes..you'd be surprised.
ok folks just an update.
I have had an offer on the house, quite below the asking price, quite quite a bit. But it is a cash buyer, so what the hell. If it all goes to plan the house should be finalised on Monday 17th May this year. I have contacted the shipping company to see when they can come and ship my gear. The buyers will give me until the 28th to move. However I think I can busy myself and push for the 19th. Hey its all about getting to Adelaide right? so some elbow greece may be required.
So can I ask a favour from POA. Everyone please pray to who ever they pray to and ask for this to work for me and Tor. I draw the line at offers of voodoo (unless its to my exwife) COME ON.
Good luck mate. Sounds like you have a busy week ahead !!!
Its not heaven over here but its pretty damn close !!!;)

I will certainly do that for you. 19th!! my stress levels would be through the roof.
We have news too, my boys have decided to rent my house from me along with a friend (yeah i know 3 men in my tice tidy clean house) so we are going to book our flights this weekend and will arrive in Adelaide in September, and i dont think thats enough time. We have no jobs, no accomodation and dont know anyone!!
GOOD LUCK to you and let me know how you get on.
Yea good luck with the house sale, we did somthing simular last may an our time is nearly here!
Bite the bullet and go for it! good luck
Hi - know how that feels, mine was sold last year for about 3 weeks then fell through and is still on the market with tenants in.
When you are ready to come over, try Donna Jacobs at Real Estate Owners - Welcome
She has helped many people we know with short/medium term furnished accommodation and is friendly and approachable. Has anyone mentioned that when you are looking for your longer term rental, having a dog will severely limit the properties you can rent? Most owners will either refuse to have pets or will charge you extra either in rent or as a bond against any damage you pet may do to the property. www.realestate.com.au is excellent for giving you an idea of what is available. Use the blue Rentals tab rather than the red Sales tab, put in your preferred max and min rental payment, number of bedrooms you want and select which area you want and it will search and provide you with a selection of properties that fall into those limits. IT will also tell you if pets are permitted or not, and even if it says they are not welcome, you can often negotiate on this by offering more than the asking amount if you really want that rental.
YAY! Great news Mike....so if you and Tor are arriving first you can scout a good pub out for that beer and pork scratchings yes?!! X
