Good luck to you ! well done on the offer, fingers crossed it all goes well for you. I am so jealous, still trying to convince the hubby to up and leave for NZ. Hopefully my persistant nagging will do it eventually lol

Have just accepted an offer on the house so as long as no hiccups we can now start planning the move

I have been to both oz and nz. In Oz i went to Perth which is a fantastic place and would be my second choice. New Zealand was very laid back much like Australia but life seemed to go at a slower pace, not as much urgency with everything. To be honest,I decided to go to New Zealand mainly however, as my partners brother lives there so we can stay with them til we find our feet and have abit of a support network. Saying that my partner did chose New Zealand over Australia for the outdoor life New Zealand has to offer. It is a lot greener whilst still having the benefit of nice weather and sandy beaches. There is a bit of variety so you have snowy mountains, green forest and white beaches.

Hi Terri
Do you need equity from your house for the move? Could you not try renting it out...get a tenant for 6 to 12 months by which time hopefully market will be better and also currency exchange rate better as this is also a nightmare at the moment??

I'm right at the start of possible move to Aus and I'm desperate so goodness only knows how you feel with everything in place bar the house sale!

Hope good things happen soon for you
