Glad I'm not the only one having trouble finding a house!! I'm looking in the northeast and just can find anything upto 350!! Dont want a great big garden but room to put a small pool and for the boy to kick a ball in but haven't seen anything yet. Did find 1 place ticked almost all the boxes when we put a offer in there were 8 other offers in ours didn't even get looked at :(
Anyone on here want to sell me a house??
Got 175 visa 18th April 08
landed on planet Adelaide 26th Oct 08 LOVE IT!!
we've settled on renting for a year to see if the housing market drops at all once the grants have gone. we will hopefully sell our uk house in that time and raise $150k to put towards a deposit (as they want 20% upwards here!).
...i did see a report suggesting house prices would double in the next couple of years with the investment being pumped into the mining industry. they suggested buying now before prices shoot up!!!!!
1352m2! you could get 4 x 4 bedroomed houses on that! sub-divide and get closer to your neighbours. It's all part of the Greater Adelaide plan for 'high-density' living.
350K is a hard market, you compare back to what you had in the UK, and most here in that range are 30 years old or more and need a bulldozer to decorate it.
There will be one or two good ones but you need to get on the real estates books, to view these before they go on the market.
Or keep bidding.
The problem is you spend such a long time trying to find the right one then loads of others find em!!!
Thebacons, i found loads of houses on realestate.com, huge things for not much money. It's not untill you get to the areas (if they are even near Adelaide) that you will see why they are such a price. Those pictures never show the huge cracks in the walls etc.
