    Wanted down under

    Hi, I've been avidly watching the Wanted Down Under series this week. Just want to know if anybody else thinks the same as me tho - the family on Wednesday programme were looking at WA, now they said at the beginning of the property search they had £180k to bring over and would like to buy without a mortgage, lets see what you get for your money. In the voiceover, Nadia whatsername says you can get 4bed family house in Rockingham area for around £200k. Now my ears prick up, coz we fancy that area, sounds a decent price, looking forward to this! WHY oh WHY then, do they show them houses (lovely as they were) for nothing under £260k????? Is it to make the programme look good, fancy newly renovated or new build houses, but what about us that live in the real world and want affordability??!!:arghh: Sorry about me ranting, its just i would really like to see what the average joe bloggs could really afford! By the way, im from yorkshire, got a pretty low mortgage here and we are (apparently) notorious for being tight with money here, so maybe that explains why im so peeved!! lol. :biglaugh:

    Phil Down Under

    Has anyone else been watching Phil Down Under (on to its second season now)? It always makes me laugh and cringe at its portrayal of life over here for Brits. People who catch wombats at nights, make boats, work as a vet for “less hour and more money”, etc, etc. I am sure these are all real examples of Brits who emigrated here but they don’t strike me as typical. The show seems to imply that people here work six hour days and spend the rest of the day at the beach ( haven’t been to the beach in over a year, but then again I do live in Melbourne!)….:laugh: I am not sure about his property choices either…. I can only speak for the Melbourne episodes but this season he took the family to…. Frankston!! At the risk of offending anyone who lives there, it is not exactly what I would call the quintessential Melbourne suburb. I am sure even those who live there would admit it is a bit rough around the edges… I suppose Phil did have a tough job on his hands though as most of the budgets for houses these families have are totally unrealistic and they all want four bedrooms, a pool and a massive living area for about $300K. Dream on, unfortunately! House prices here are crazy, even if they have stagnated a bit…The other Melbourne place they visited was Geelong. Inner Melbourne didn’t actually feature at all (apart from the shots of Fed Square, Flinders St station, etc). Anyway, I was just interested in others thoughts. I do love Phil really – it would be good if Kirsty came out as well! :cute:
  4. Just thought I’d start up a thread for people that love living in Australia It’s up to you, you can tell everyone why you love it or simply just put a smiley to register your vote. It seems sometimes that the anti Australia brigade make everything in Australia look all doom and gloom. I’m not after a bitchy thread, just a thread that new members or people worried “am I doing the right thing” can see that there are members who are happy and enjoying life down under.
  5. In the UK, the housing market has been in decline for over 6 months now and 2009 looks like it is not going to improve, due to the economy being in such poor shape. How is it looking "down under". Are there signs of a slow down with you or is it too soon to tell? Would be interested in feedback. Thanks all, Martin (skilled visa approved in Dec - coming to reckie in Sep!)
  6. Hi all, A new addition to PomsinOz! Things are getting tough here in the UK with the economy rapidly falling off the cliff. The hope is that it will last for a few more months and then start showing signs of some improvement (being optimistic). How is it like "down under"? I hear that things are not all that good either although the impression is that its not as bad. With the pound sinking as well, the GBP is suffering - which is not such bad news if you are heading the other way? Any feedback / comments on job prospects and the housing market in Australia? Cheers all, Martin
