hey chick. we are planning on being out there in august next year (although we are prepared to go earlier or later than that if need be.) looking around the marino area ourselves. hubbys parents are in hackham so obviously we have to look around where they are. i loved the look of largs bay but i've heard some things about there to make me reconsider til we get out there and scope it out for ourselves. not heard anything bad about marino though and it looks gorgeous. hubbys parents started off in seaford but personally dont like the look of it, so decided to just keep trawling through realestate.com.au til we found somewhere we like the look of! keep looking at the houses up for over 2 million dollars and thinking someday....! how about you? do you have any ideas on where you wnat to go?
i'm a house wife myself, dont have any qualifications work wise just gcse's and as levels and a btec! once the kids are older i plan on becoming a personal trainer though :) and i cant help but think australia would be a very good place to do that - they supposedly have the best colleges for that sort of thing in the world! hubby is a diesel fitter, he works on buses at the minute. for reasonable prices we found marino looked really nice and not heard anything bad about it and the prices for 3 bed rentals was about $450 a week. for the cheaper option to that there is seaford, they seem to be about $350 kind of mark. i think it depends on what you are looking for. my in laws were in seaford and they loved it. they didnt want to move but they fell in love with the house they bought in hackham, thats the only reason they left! just can't wait to get out there now. hate all the waiting around! my cleaning OCD has gone into overdrive over the past few weeks because i've been stressing over it all!!!
ahh see i have the opposite problem, i stop eating when i'm stressed! i have my hubby and kids keep reminding me to eat!!! although today i wanted roast chicken so bought a rotisserie one and i swear i ate the whole thing!! think my body finally realised it can't survive on stress alone!!!
Panic over, we got a letter in the post from the agent today, with the confirmation email on it so we have all the details we need i think!! He seems like a decent guy so thats handy, I've read on a thread on here that some agents dont give this information out which is what i thought the norm would be!!
We have no idea where to start, I've never been to Adelaide, we were hoping to get to Brisbane but needed state sponsorship to get enough points, not that i'm disappointed coz i think it'll suit us more, just dont know where to start, some people say one place then someone else says the complete opposite!! It feels as though about 80% of the people on here live in Port Noarlunga!!! It has good reviews on real estate, and everyone on here seems to like it!! I've not heard of Marino? I think i need a map of adelaide!! I went on a website about adelaide and it said suberbs in the south had a bad rep but i have no idea where these are and what it actually means??? Defo need to start researching areas and schools!!!
we just went on realestate.com.au and went along the various places along the coast. marino does look really nice and there are some houses that are massively expensive and others that seem perfectly reasonable and you wonder how its so cheap when a similar one is 5 times the price! if i were you id just keep trawling through the real estate websites - its what i'm doing, eventually you get a feel for the kind of place you want and they all seem to be like tha in one area if that makes sense at all! i've noticed a lot of people on here seem to be in port noarlunga - i didnt like the look of it and my in laws told us everyone refers to it as little england! suppose that must be where the majority of poms feel is right for them!
we wanted to go to brisbane too but as the in laws are sponsoring us we kinda had to go to adelaide. i'm not really fussed to be honest. but the kids definitely want to be there when thats where their grandparents are!
glad you got all the info through now too. must be such a relief!
