At the moment we are going through what most people have or are going through. The house is up for sale and not getting much interest or not the right offer.
Being asked why don't you rent the house out, but myself and Nik wanted to sell up and move with out any money ties in the UK. I was given some books about Australia for xmas and read in their that you should not sale your house for at least 2 year, just incase Australia is not for you and you have a house to come back to.
So at the moment we are looking to see what is invoved and what we need to save to take with us to live on, rent, etc for the first piriod of settling in.
We are looking to ship most of our own stuff with us, even my vw camper (which could be home for a while if needbe).
So at the moment we will keep the house on the market until Febuary. and see what we decide to do around then.
