Hi, We're in Bishops Cleeve, where are you?
We're in rented.
(after my first divorce i didnt want to get into mortage business again etc and all my employement from then came with accomodation, which was great, am now in a lovely area paying the same nominal rent agreed before i moved in - unfortunately my family has now grown too much for the house..)
My mums trying to sell up and not having any joy at all. Shes in Warden Hill.
Weesp - we've got the 136 visa, oh is a toolmaker, im a hospitality manager - was a chef, Eden Hills is ment to be lush...so will be out of our price range!!! They have 2 boys, 15 & 9 - our friend is English - trained with my oh, his wifes an Ozzie, he pops back to the uk once a year, but the whole family rarely come over as its so expensive.
Im trying to sort our house up - we've decided to ditch the lot, just take sentimental/photos etc - weighed up £3500+ for shipping to cost of replacing stuff - as our bits have been 'used & abused' by 4 kids its going to be easier to buy out there.
Going to use excess baggage for what we want to take...

Small world eh?
I know prices are going up - pretty quickly - but one positive is that Adelaide is still the most affordable city etc...you'll have until Oct before you have to fly wont you, which hopefully be plenty of time to sell the house - i know you'd rather it sooner than later - but at least you dont have to rush to validate.
We're going into rental initially - but i'd love to be able to buy straight away, as like you say prices are increasing all the time...
My oh is at Smiths/GE & bored stiff! He used to work at Fletcher Hamilton a small mold tool manufacturers and loved it there - hes had alot of interest shown from companies in Adelaide which is a relief - he's off doing interviews 4 days after landing. He had a job lined up for September - but we couldnt go cos i broke my leg :embarrassed:
