      Got house in Willetton!

      Hi,

      We've been here a week already and we have managed to secure a rental in Willetton in the catchment area for Rostrata primary and Willetton high school. We are now busy buying things to put in it which is all very exciting. Today we are looking to buy a car, we looked at John Hughes and a couple of other places online last night so hopefully we will be able to get one from somewhere.

      We get the keys next wed and move in a week on sat, cant wait to start settling in properly.

      Hope everyone has a good day, looks like its going to be a warm one - again! Ha ha!

      Jen x

      Just out of curiosity how busy was the open home? we went to c couple when we were in Perth 2 years ago just to be nosey at the houses but there was a queue of people around the block at some of them. just wondering if with the number of rentals that are out there if there is less people looking for houses.

      There were only about 4 or 5 families looking round the 4 houses we looked round, and only one other application went in on our house so not too bad. Just glad everything has gone through quite quickly.

      Congratulations!

      I'm in the process of moving back over to Perth from the UK (Im Australian, Hubby is British) and I grew up in Willetton and went to Rostrata Primary and Willetton High :-) That was a fair time ago now though! haha!
