Hello everyone, not been on here for ages! But after getting our visa in September we put the house on the market. We have just sold it after silly silly offers and people taking the mickey really. But we hung in there and stuck to our guns and we finally got what we wanted. It was so stressfull, didn't want to give the house away but ideally wanted to sell rather than rent. Fingers crossed it will go through. Its been such a rollercoaster ride this year and often felt like giving up (mainly due to the added stress of the credit crunch). But people still need to move and my advice would be to keep up to date on right move at the competition and put the house up for a fair price. Also the estate agent always wants their christmas cheque so I would never trust them completely when they ask you to knock 30k off the asking price. We didn't tell them that we were moving to Aus either and I think that has helped. Also I had so many deadlines and dates I wanted to go and in the end I took them away (apart from the obvious visa deadline) and it made me alot more laid back about it all. So the next step is when will we go? Hopeing for Jan but now there seems loads to do so I've asked my hubby to get me a PDA to try and be organised!! I thought this time would never come and felt like giving up so many times but I have learnt that you will always come up against challenges BUT keep going! Good luck to everyone still waiting and I promise to remember to send updates when I get to Aus! (Can't imagine going though). Bernie :spinny:
