    Welcome

     

    You will find a lot of tips / links on the rental & real estate threads that might be helpful.

     

    Congratulations with getting your visa, great news !

     

    We have meds on the 9th Jan, so hopefully visas to follow soon after :)

     

    Happy New Year

    Hi Lisa, welcome back :) its been quiet without you over the xmas period

     

    Ste & Sasha, like Lisa we do keep changing our mind, the website Lisa has created is SUPER :D:D

     

    Southern suburbs appeal, varied & the one thing I noticed recently is that they are about the same distance from Adelaide CBD as some of the Northern suburbs we are considering :)

    Northern includes, Paralowie, Tee Tree Gully, Para Vista, Modbury

    Southern includes, Blackwood, Seaford, Belair, Marion - these suburbs are spread across the East & West

    Like everyone I want to be close to the sea, I live over 2 hours from it at the moment so anything less than that is a bonus :!: Ideally I do not want to spend loads on a house, I am happy to keep living costs low for a better location / lifestyle but who knows :!:

     

    I think the visas are taking a couple of months from meds (approx) so we could have our visas around April 07 if all ok

    Ashley is thinking around July & let the boys finish their final school term in the UK, they have to re-sit the same year in Oz anyway

    Tricky is flights are MUCH more expensive during this time (UK hols) so hes now considering June (HOORAY :D )

     

    We are discussing the house sale with friends, who are interested in buying, obviously we won't agree anything until we have the visa. But I don't want to be stuck with no sale :(

     

    So 2007 is going to be busy for us all, but worth it I am sure in the end :)

     

    How about you both ?

     

    Angela

     

    ps my boys are now speaking to your girls, they are younger but i help with the typing :wink:

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks for info on areas to settle :D we keep going on the real estate pages but with so much choice I come of more confused than what i was before I went on :?

    We are just waiting for the house to sell and it cant come quick enough :)

    The girls have said that they have been talking to your boys :D Its been a lot easier especialy for paige talking to the other kids because she was a bit apprehensive about going and leaving her friends, but Immogen just thinks it one big adventure which is good :D

     

    From the time we had our medicals we had our visas within a month so might not have wait that long :D

     

    I am sure it will be worth all stress 8)

    What a nightmare to have people back out at the last minute from your house sale - that is my constant nightmare at the moment - we had the survey last week and have heard nothing since - maybe they're waiting for a last minute knock down in price - I hope not.

     

    Can't decide on suburbs either - initially thought Cristies Beach looked fab - then read a lot of negative comments - think much like here - it all looks good on paper but you have to be there to really know

    Hi Angela,

    We have been living in Australia for 33yrs. Spent 12yrs in Adelaide & 21yrs in Perth. When we emigrated in 1973, we just needed chest exrays & plane tickets & we were here! We had a house built at Modbury Heights. However, with hindsight the best place to live is south of Adelaide, close to the sea. The summers can be very hot & living on the flat plains North of the City can be uncomfortable during summer. Seaford, Moana & Willunga I would recommend.Blackwood & Belair are good areas in the hills.
